Disney Cruise Line to Return to Greece, Add New Port Calls in Scandinavia
Disney Cruise Line has announced their itineraries for summer 2021, and in a response to popular demand, the line will be making a triumphant return to Greece. Disney Magic will also be visiting new ports in Sweden, Norway, and Greece for the first time.
In summer 2021, Disney Cruise Line will launch a new collection of itineraries as part of their grand tour of Europe. From May to July, Disney Magic will visit a variety of destinations in the Mediterranean including the Greek Isles, Spain, and the French Riviera. In Greece, the ship will visit Santorini, Mykonos, Katakolon (near Olympia), and the island of Kefalonia, a first-time port of call for Disney. Disney Magic will visit those ports and other beautiful locales during four special voyages that range from 8-11 nights long.
One voyage will include a return to Dubrovnik, Croatia, known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic.” The walled Old City of Dubrovnik is a stunning UNESCO World Heritage site, offering seaside views and centuries-old cobblestoned streets to explore.
From late July to September, the ship will head up to the north for ports in the British Isles, Baltic, Iceland, Norway, and more. Another first-time port of call for Disney Cruise Line includes the medieval city of Visby, Sweden, which is considered one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Scandinavia. Eidfjord, Norway will also be a new port for Disney, an idyllic village situated at the food of Hardangervidda, Norway’s largest national park.
Disney Wonder will return to Alaska for the 2021 summer season to explore the region’s stunning natural vistas, glaciers, and wildlife. Departing from Vancouver, Canada, 7-night itineraries will visit Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and Dawes Glacier. One 9-night cruise will visit Hubbard Glacier, Icy Strait Point, Sitka, Juneau, and Ketchikan. A shorter 5-night voyage visits Dawes Glacier and Ketchikan.
Each Alaska voyage will offer adventure and fun both in port and on the ship, with official Disney Port Adventures (shore excursions) and Disney touches that will bring the spirit of “The Last Frontier” to life onboard.
Caribbean and Bahamas
In summer 2021, Disney Cruise Line will be offering 3-9 night cruises in the Caribbean and Bahamas. Most itineraries there include a stop at Disney’s private Bahamian island, Castaway Cay.
In addition to 7-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, Disney Fantasy will embark on a variety of voyages throughout the summer. These include a 6-night and a 9-night Caribbean cruise, as well as 3, 4, and 5-night Bahamas cruises — all of which will stop in Castaway Cay. One special 5-night itinerary makes two stops at the highly-acclaimed island. Disney Dream will operate 3 and 4-night Bahamas cruises that also call on Castaway Cay.
Adventures by Disney Add-Ons
In addition to the cruise, guests can further enhance their Alaska or European vacation by choosing an add-on package through Adventures by Disney, Disney’s guided group vacations brand. Throughout the cruise, knowledgeable Adventure Guides provide dedicated service both onboard and in port, as they lead travelers on specially curated excursions, interactive activities, and off-the-beaten-path adventures. On the ship, cruisers will enjoy unique experiences and amenities exclusive to Adventures by Disney, such as an intimate discussion with theater production cast members followed by a behind-the-scenes costume and prop activity.
Adventures by Disney also offers pre-cruise vacations in London, Barcelona, and Copenhagen. These 2 and 3-night Escapes offer unforgettable experiences in iconic cities, including activities like flamenco dancing, mosaic making, and preparing local cuisine.
