Highlights of this cruise:

New Orleans, Louisiana
Local Culture and Flavor
A blend of French, African, Spanish and American cultures, New Orleans is a true American icon, considered by many to be its most unique city. A major port, it is renowned for its jazz, unique and diverse cuisine, festivals and celebrations.

Past and Present
In 1000 B.C., the Gulf South was inhabited by Native Americans and remained untouched until the late 17th century when it was discovered by fur trappers and traders. The French founded the colony La Nouvelle Orleans in 1718 but lost it to the Spanish in 1763 after the British won the Seven Years’ War and gave all the land west of the Mississippi to Spain. During the 39 years the Spanish owned it, it became a thriving port city. Afterwards, New Orleans returned to France until 1803, when Napoleon sold the entire Louisiana territory to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase. Louisiana became a state in 1812, and shortly thereafter General Andrew Jackson won a victory against the British in the famous Battle of New Orleans. Suffering violence during the Civil War, Reconstruction and the Jim Crow era, New Orleans enjoyed economic and social progress through the 1900s. Today, this city of celebrations is considered an enduring testimony to the American spirit!

Cozumel, Mexico
Local Culture and Flavor
Cozumel is approximately 30 miles long and 9 miles wide, with a population of about 175,000. Life on the island itself is rich in Mayan and Mexican culture. The majority of Cozumel residents live in San Miguel, leaving the rest of the island largely untouched and covered in lush vegetation. Heavily dependent on its thriving tourist trade, Cozumel holds irresistible attractions for vacationers interested in bargain shopping, island life, leisure, water sports and archaeological curiosities. The famous Pre-Columbian Xelha Mayan ruins are a perennial draw, and a unique place to visit for a taste of the island's ancient history.

Past and Present
The site of an old civilization indeed, Cozumel was settled by Mayans by the first century AD. They considered the site sacred to the Moon Goddess, Ixchel. The Spanish arrived at the island in 1518 and it became an outpost for pirates until 1848, when warfare in the Yucatan drove refugees to settle there. A boom in visitors occurred after 1959, when the famed Jacques Cousteau publicized Cozumel's coral reefs as among the best in the world for scuba diving. Today, Guests of Disney Cruise Line can let their imaginations take flight in the island the Mayans named Cozumel, also known as the "Island of the Swallows,” so long ago.

George Town, Grand Cayman
Living up to its name, the majestic Grand Cayman is the largest of the Cayman Islands.

Local Culture and Flavor
The limestone Cayman Islands are actually the top land masses of a giant underwater mountain range. The majority of the islanders live in Grand Cayman—and they are a lively bunch! The festive spirit of the area attracts tourists from all over with the allure of exotic marine life, warm waters, sun-drenched beaches and delicious cuisine.

Past and Present
Archeological evidence of humans inhabiting the islands dates all the way to the 16th century. When Christopher Columbus spotted them in 1503, he dubbed the island "Las Tortugas" for the abundance of sea turtles he saw there. In 1670, the islands were captured and ceded to England. The first Cayman constitution was issued in 1959, just 3 years before they broke away from Jamaica and became a distinguished British Overseas Territory. While the islands have weathered past issues such as high inflation, poverty and hurricanes, they have also attracted and maintained a population of culturally diverse and mixed people who take pride in their heritage and welcome visitors each year.
