| Disney cruise ship to make Seattle its homeport this year |
This year will be the first and perhaps last time that Disney Cruise Line's massive red, white and blue floating theme park — the 2,400-passenger Disney Wonder — docks on the Seattle waterfront. Disney will call in Seattle after the Alaska cruise season kicks off May 6, but already has made the decision not to come back in 2013. Instead, Disney will return to Vancouver, B.C., where it began its foray into the Alaska market in 2011.
Disney cruises market family fun with G-rated floor shows aboard a ship with three pools and 10 decks. The line plans 15 sailings from Seattle this year with Alaska stops at the Tracy Arm fjord and at Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan as well as Victoria, B.C.
