Disney Cruise Line (DCL) will offer families voyages to the Greek Isles, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Alaska and the Caribbean in summer 2022. Plus, first-ever summer departures from Miami will take guests to Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas.
“While we prepare for a return to sea just as soon as the time is right, we continue to look to the future and develop more cruising options for families,” said Thomas Mazloum, president of DCL. “Offering this diverse new line-up of itineraries for the summer of 2022 shows our commitment to taking more guests to more destinations around the world as we plan for additional ships in the years ahead.”
In summer 2022, a new collection of destinations will be part of the Disney Magic’s grand tour of Europe, which begins with sailings through the Greek Isles and Mediterranean before heading to northern Europe for cruises to the Baltic, the British Isles, Iceland and the Norwegian fjords. Five new ports of call in Europe include Chania, Greece; Porto, Portugal; Riga, Latvia; Maloy, Norway; and Nynashamn, Sweden, near Stockholm.
From Rome, eight-, nine- and 12-night cruises to Greece will take families to Piraeus, the gateway to Athens, and to the Greek islands of Santorini and Mykonos. One nine-night sailing will mark Disney Cruise Line’s first call to Chania, Greece, on the island of Crete, known for its harbor and Venetian and Florentine influences.
Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona, Spain, will visit Rome and Naples, plus French Riviera coastal towns like Villefranche and Cannes. During a seven-night cruise from Barcelona to Dover, England, Disney will make its first-ever visit to Porto, Portugal, a coastal city with old-world charm in one of the wine regions and made famous for giving Port Wine its name.
Additional new ports of call in northern Europe include Riga, the capital of Latvia and the largest metropolis in the Baltics; Nynashamn, Sweden, a seaside town just outside Stockholm; and Maloy, Norway, a coastal village bordered by silver-sand beaches and historic lighthouses.
Disney Wonder will return to Alaska for the 2022 summer season to explore the region’s vistas, glaciers and wildlife. Departing from Vancouver, Canada, most of these seven-night cruises will visit Dawes Glacier, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. Two of the cruises will call on Icy Strait Point in place of Skagway.
Every cruise from Miami in the summer of 2022 will stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. The June 7 voyage marks the Disney Dream’s inaugural cruise from Miami, as the ship has previously only homeported in Port Canaveral, Fla. In addition to visiting Castaway Cay, three- and four-night cruises from Miami will call on Nassau, Bahamas, while five-night cruises include a stop at either Grand Cayman or Cozumel, Mexico. One special five-night sailing features two stops at Castaway Cay, along with a call on Nassau.
Each Disney Fantasy sailing from Port Canaveral, near the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla., will feature a visit to Castaway Cay (pictured above). The Disney Fantasy will embark on an assortment of itineraries to the eastern and western Caribbean throughout the summer of 2022, including seven-night voyages, a five-night sailing, and an extended nine-night cruise. The nine-night Disney Fantasy cruise features a first-time call on Roseau, Dominica, an eastern Caribbean destination filled with natural hot springs, waterfalls and tropical rainforests. This mountainous island is bordered by pristine beaches and crystal clear water.
As previously announced, Disney Wish is scheduled to sail its maiden voyage in summer 2022. Information on itineraries and bookings for this ship will be released at a later date. The ship will be powered by liquefied natural gas, or LNG, one of the cleanest-burning fuels available. At approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms, the ship will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
In summer 2022, DCL guests can extend the magic of their cruise vacation in Europe with a pre-cruise escape from Adventures by Disney in Rome, London, Barcelona and Copenhagen. These two- to three-night escapes feature experiences in cities, such as a private, after-hours visit to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel in Rome. In addition, activities like flamenco dancing, mosaic making and preparing local cuisine immerse families in the culture of each region.
Bookings for these cruises and Adventures by Disney offerings open to the public March 25, 2021.
