The “Disney Wonder,” a luxury liner, docks in Puntarenas today with 1,800 passengers, the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo said Thursday.

This is the first time that a boat from the family-oriented Disney Cruise Line has visited Costa Rica, the institute said.

The 85,000-ton “Disney Wonder” left Florida Jan. 6 and traveled through the Panamá Canal. It will end its 15-night voyage in Los Angeles, according to the company’s schedule.

The institute credited the firm Agencia Naviera Scan, for arranging the visit.

“Disney Wonder” has a sister ship, the “Disney Magic.” Both were launched in 1999 in the tradition of the luxury trans-Atlantic steamers of the mid-20th century.

The “Wonder” has 873 staterooms and can handle 2,700 passengers, the institute said.

Visits by such ships are good for Costa Rican tourism because passengers participate in a number of shore activities.
