Ahoy, Disney Cruise Line fans! Today, we unveiled where our ships will be sailing in the summer of 2018. Disney Cruise Line will take a grand tour of Europe with visits to the Mediterranean, northern Europe, Norway and Iceland. Plus, explorations continue with sailings to Alaska, the Caribbean and the Bahamas.
Here’s a closer look at the adventures in store…
First-time visits to Fashionable Milan, Italy
We will visit Milan, Italy – a global capital of fashion and design – for the first time, as part of special sailings from Barcelona and Rome. The Disney Magic will stop at Genoa, Italy, which is the gateway to Milan and the picturesque locale of Portofino. The beautiful metropolis of Milan is perfect for shopping and home to top-name designer stores, boutiques, open-air markets and art galleries.
New sailings from Rome and Barcelona
In June 2018, we will sail between Barcelona and Rome, giving you the chance to experience the rich culture and inspiring history of these two cities as bookend experiences in a single cruise.
In Rome, you can explore the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican, and sample authentic local cuisine. Barcelona offers beautiful beaches, the market streets of Las Ramblas, the artistic architecture of Gaudi and the famed Sagrada Família church.
First-time visit to Cork, Ireland
We will take you to Cork, Ireland on our first-ever seven-night British Isles cruise. Cork is home to a vibrant culinary scene and a plethora of pubs, shops and cafes. You can connect with Ireland’s ancient past and visit historic sites like Blarney Castle. Don’t miss your chance to gain the gift of gab and kiss the famed Blarney Stone!
Additional ports visited on this sailing include Dublin, Ireland; Greenock, Scotland; and Liverpool, England. Throughout the summer, the Disney Magic’s grand tour of Europe continues with engagements in the Baltic, Norwegian fjords, British Isles and the Mediterranean.
Return to Alaska
If breathtaking natural vistas, magnificent glaciers and awe-inspiring wildlife are what you are seeking, the newly re-imagined Disney Wonder is returning to Alaska for the 2018 summer season. A variety of itineraries departing from Vancouver, Canada, include stops in Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point and Tracy Arm Fjord.
More Opportunities to Visit Castaway Cay
When we say “double dip,” we’re not just talking about complimentary ice cream on the pool deck. In 2018, we are giving you a series of cruises that include two stops at our private island paradise in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay!
In June and July, the Disney Dream will sail four- and five-night cruises to the Bahamas, each with two stops at Castaway Cay, so you can have twice the fun in the sun and enjoy even more of the sparkling turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and swaying palm trees!
Bon voyage! Bookings open to the public on Feb. 23, 2017 and more details on 2018 itineraries can be found here.
