Cruise Ship Disney Wonder Makes First Trip to Costa Rica

SAN JOSE – Mickey and Minnie Mouse arrived Friday in Costa Rica aboard the cruise ship Disney Wonder, which for the first time has called at a port in this Central American country, tourism officials said.

The vessel, which is 294 metros (964 feet) long and can carry up to 1,800 pasajeros, docked Friday morning at the port of Puntarenas on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, coming from Panama.

The Disney Wonder set sail on Jan. 6 from Port Canaveral, Florida, and stopped at several ports in the Atlantic. It crossed to the Pacific Ocean through the Panama Canal and on Saturday will continue on its way to Los Angeles.

Costa Rican Tourism Minister Carlos Ricardo Benevides said in a communique that the country hails “the arrival of this cruise ship that will allow those families to enjoy our Pacific coast beaches, mountains and special adventures.”

The Disney fleet is composed of the twin ships Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, which pay tribute to the bygone era of transatlantic steamships that crossed the Atlantic Ocean, connecting the Americas with Europe.
