NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Disney Cruise Line will be launching cruises out of New York City starting next year.

“We’re returning to the Big Apple in 2016 for sailings for both the Bahamas and Canada!” blogged Disney spokesman Jonathan Frontado.

He made the announcement as the cruise ship Disney Magic docked in New York on Monday.

Frontado said that New York cruises to the Bahamas will include visits to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the Castaway Cay resort in the Bahamas. The cruise will include a Park Hopper ticket to Walt Disney World, as well as transportation between the ship and the resorts.

Disney does not currently offer cruises from New York City and will provide them beginning in the fall season in 2016 for a limited time.

Departure ports within the U.S. this year are in San Diego, Honolulu, Galveston, Texas, Miami and Port Canaveral in Florida, and also San Juan, Puerto Rico. There are also departure ports in England, Spain, Denmark and Canada.

The current destinations are in the Bahamas as well as the Caribbean, California, Hawaii, Europe, Mexico and the Panama Canal.

Three-day cruises from Cape Canaveral to the Bahamas in the fall start at about $1,400 per person. Ten-day fall cruises from Vancouver to Hawaii cost about $3,700 per person.

Disney has been expanding its cruise destinations in recent months, including a “Frozen” themed cruise to Scandinavia that it launched this summer.
