It's all smooth sailing with Sunwing Vacations this winter with its newly released 2012/2013 Caribbean Cruises brochure. Sunwing once again features the beautiful MSC Poesia, which offers sailings from Ft Lauderdale. New this season, Sunwing will be offering the Norwegian Epic with sailings from Miami as well as the Disney Cruise Line with sailings aboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy from Port Canaveral and the Disney Wonder from Miami.

Back again for the fourth successful year with Sunwing, the MSC Poesia ("Poem of the Seas") has proven a hit with cruisers who enjoy the ship's many features, including a 12,000 square foot spa, a sushi bar complete with Zen garden, and a tennis court; 11 bars, 5 restaurants, 2 pools and 7 whirlpools, plus a gym with yoga classes round out the variety of facilities available. The MSC Poesia accommodates up to 2,550 guests and offers age appropriate activities for kids and teens from 3 to 17. Best of all, children 11 years old and under sail for free when sharing a stateroom with 2 full fare paying guests, paying just airfare and taxes. The MSC Poesia sails primarily on two alternating one-week cruises from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The Eastern Caribbean Enchantment itinerary visits St. Maarten, San Juan, and Nassau, with 3 days spent at sea, while the Western Caribbean Wonders itinerary features stops at Cozumel, Roatan, Georgetown, and Falmouth, with 2 days at sea. Baseball and holiday sailing theme cruises are also available on select dates.

Continuing its partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line, Sunwing will be offering the Norwegian Epic, NCL's newest, largest, and most innovative cruise ship to date, for the winter season. The ship features 21 delicious dining choices, 20 bars and lounges, a sprawling spa and fitness centre, a casino, and fun activities and entertainment for kids of every age. Built for Freestyle Cruising®, guests can treat themselves with a no-rules, freedom-filled cruise in the Caribbean. Miami sailings are offered on Saturdays from December 22, 2012 to March 09, 2013 with an Eastern Caribbean itinerary, which includes visits to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Nassau with 3 days at sea to enjoy the plethora of onboard amenities.

Sunwing is also pleased to introduce Disney Cruise Line to its cruise program. Offering something for everyone, passengers sailing with Disney Cruise Line can enjoy relaxing "me" time for adults, imaginative fun for the kids, and exciting family time for all. Every voyage includes the attention to detail and world class hospitality that only Disney can provide. Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy sailings depart from Port Canaveral for 3, 4 and 7 night itineraries, while Disney Wonder sailings depart Miami on 4 and 5 night itineraries.

Sunwing has packaged the MSC Poesia and the Norwegian Epic with convenient flights direct from Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec City to Ft Lauderdale on Saturdays with transfers to/from the departure port in Ft Lauderdale and Miami. Disney Cruise Line itineraries will be sold as cruise only, which allows the freedom and flexibility to book any of Sunwing's Florida air options along with pre/post hotel stays in Orlando, or the coast. For those with lots of vacation time, get the best of both worlds by combining sailing at sea with a bit of adventure on land with a hotel and car rental in Florida!

All Sunwing flights to Florida are aboard the "high frills" Sunwing Airlines, where passengers are treated to the award winning service, which includes 20 kg free checked baggage, hot towel service, choice of a hot snack, soft drinks, and complimentary in-flight entertainment, including first run movies. For just $40 more per flight segment, travellers can upgrade to Sunwing's Elite Plus service, which features extra leg room seats, advance seat selection, separate check-in at a majority of airports, advance boarding, and 30 kg baggage allowance.
