The Disney Cruise Line will make its return to New Orleans beginning in early 2021.

The company announced on Thursday, September 26 that cruises will return for a limited-time engagement with sailings to the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and Disney's private island Castaway Cay.

The ship, Disney Wonder, will begin voyages from New Orleans from late January through February 2021.

Two four and five-night cruises and three seven-night cruises will sail from the port to various destinations like the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Castaway Cay.

A 14-day cruise to Panama will also be offered.

Disney says that guests sailing from New Orleans will "experience the flavors and flair of the Big Easy both onboard the Disney Wonder and onshore."

"The sounds and sights of New Orleans come to life at Tiana's Place restaurant, where families are transported to an era of southern charm, spirited jazz and street party celebrations with live music and other surprises inspired by the Disney animated film "The Princess and the Frog." Before or after their cruise, guests can savor the city's distinct cuisine, visit family-friendly museums and parks, and take in the sounds of world-renowned live jazz music."

Bookings will be open to the public beginning on October 3, 2019.

Disney Cruise Line will set sail from New Orleans for the first time in 2020.
