I’m excited to share with you the news that we are returning to Greece in summer 2021! Get ready to plan an exciting adventure set sail on family travels around the world with a new collection of itineraries that will transport you through Europe and beyond. If experiencing the awe-inspiring Alaska or soaking in the sun in the Bahamas and Caribbean is the retreat you seek, then Disney Cruise Line has the vacation voyage for you!
In summer 2021, we will sail to an array of captivating
locales across Europe and beyond, with itineraries of varying lengths and ports
The awe-inspiring beauty of Greece will shine
with stunning landscapes and archeological wonders, like Santorini with its
iconic whitewashed cliffside dwellings and Mykonos with beautiful beaches along
the azure Aegean Sea.
Other exciting stops on Greek Isles itineraries include Katakolon near ancient Olympia – home to the first Olympic Games – and the gorgeous Greek island of Kefalonia, a first-time port of call for Disney Cruise Line.
If landing in a medieval city
with spectacular seaside views and centuries-old cobblestoned lanes to explore
is part of your vacation game plan, then it would be a shame to miss a cruise
that includes Dubrovnik, Croatia. Known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” the walled Old City of Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with adventures and
activities for your whole family.
Additional first-time ports of call for that you may want to add to your bucket list include Visby, Sweden, considered to be one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Scandinavia, and the village of Eidfjord, Norway, home to geographic wonders and situated at the foot of Norway’s largest national park.
Adventures in Alaska
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.
Each Alaska sailing will offer adventure and fun with breathtaking natural vistas, glaciers, wildlife, exciting Port Adventures and special Disney touches that will bring the splendor and spirit of “The Last Frontier” to life onboard.
Tropical Vacations to the Caribbean and Bahamas
In summer 2021, we will embark on a variety of vacation voyages to tropical destinations in the Caribbean and Bahamas. Here you can relax and experience charming island cultures, sunbathe on golden beaches and revel in local marketplaces. Ranging from three- to nine-night sailings from Port Canaveral, most of these itineraries include a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
In addition to seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises, the Disney Fantasy will embark on an assortment of itineraries to the Bahamas and Caribbean ranging from three to nine nights. One special five-night Disney Fantasy cruise features two stops at Disney’s private island.
The Disney Dream will provide even more opportunities for guests to visit Castaway Cay in the summer of 2021 with all three- and four-night Bahamian cruises calling on the private island paradise.
Bookings open to the public on Feb. 28, 2020. More details can be found on the “Summer 2021 Itineraries” page of disneycruise.com.
So many options that offer a family voyage of a lifetime. Time to tackle your bucket list and turn your summer break dreams to a cruise vacation reality!
