Disney Cruise Line has announced plans to return to Greece for the summer 2021 cruise season. In addition to Greece, the cruise line will also offer sailings in Alaska, the Caribbean and the Bahamas, as well as three first-time ports of call in Greece, Sweden and Norway. Bookings open February 28, 2020. 

Mediterranean and Northern Europe

In the Mediterranean, the Disney Magic will spend May through July calling at destinations including the Greek Isles, Spain and the French Riviera. From late July through September, the ship will sail to places in the British Isles, Northern Europe, the Baltic, Iceland and Norway

The Disney Magic will operate four sailings to the Greek Isles in summer 2021 ranging from eight to 11 nights, with calls including Santorini and Mykonos. Each of the ship’s Mediterranean itineraries will combine a selection of stops in Greece with visits to other notable cities in the region, with standout Greek stops including Katakolon near ancient Olympia – home to the first Olympic Games – and the Greek island of Kefalonia, a first-time port of call for the line. One cruise will include a stop in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where guests can visit its medieval walled city, a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

Additional first-time ports of call for Disney Cruise Line include the medieval city of Visby, Sweden, considered to be one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Scandinavia, and the village of Eidfjord, Norway, situated at the foot of Hardangervidda, Norway’s largest national park.

Alaska

The Disney Wonder will return to Alaska for the 2021 summer season. Departing from Vancouver, Canada, seven-night itineraries will visit Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan and Dawes Glacier. One nine-night Alaskan adventure will visit Hubbard Glacier, Icy Strait Point, Sitka, Juneau and Ketchikan. A special five-night cruise will travel to Dawes Glacier and Ketchikan.

The Caribbean and the Bahamas

In summer 2021, Disney Cruise Line will embark on a variety of vacation voyages to tropical destinations in the Caribbean and Bahamas. Ranging from three- to nine-night sailings, most itineraries will include a stop at the cruise line’s private island, Castaway Cay

In addition to seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, near Orlando, Florida, and the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disney Fantasy will embark on an assortment of itineraries throughout the summer of 2021. These include a six-night sailing and an extended nine-night Caribbean cruise. Three-, four- and five-night Bahamian cruises round out the Disney Fantasy summer season – all including a stop at Castaway Cay. One special five-night cruise includes two stops at the private island.

The Disney Dream will provide additional opportunities for guests to visit Castaway Cay in the summer of 2021, with all three- and four-night Bahamian cruises calling there. 

Guided Experiences With Adventures by Disney

In summer 2021, Disney Cruise Line guests will be able to take advantage of a variety of add-on packages from Disney’s family guided group vacations operator, Adventures by Disney. Highlights include a return to Alaska and popular packages in northern Europe and the Mediterranean.

As part of the packages, Adventure Guides will provide dedicated service both onboard and in port, as they lead guests on specially curated excursions, interactive activities and off-the-beaten-path adventures. Onboard the ship, guests enjoy unique experiences and premium amenities exclusive to Adventures by Disney, such as an intimate talkback session with Walt Disney Theatre cast members followed by a behind-the-scenes costume and prop activity.

Adventures by Disney also offers pre-cruise vacations in London; Barcelona, Spain; and Copenhagen, Denmark. These two- to three-night Escapes include activities such as flamenco dancing, mosaic making and preparing local cuisine.

Disney Vacation Club will host a members-only charter cruise in 2021, a five-night western Caribbean sailing aboard the Disney Fantasy on June 12, 2021. Bookings open to Disney Vacation Club members on May 2, 2020.
