Disney Cruise Line has released details of its summer 2022 program which will include new destinations and ports in the Greek Isles, Mediterranean, northern Europe, Alaska and the Caribbean.
The program also includes Disney Cruise Line’s first-ever summer departures from Miami that will take guests to Disney’s enchanting private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay.
“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 Disney Cruise Line. “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.”
Explorations in the Greek Isles, Mediterranean, Northern Europe and Beyond
A new collection of destinations will be part of 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 explore destinations like Piraeus, the gateway to Athens, and to the spectacular 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 charming harbour and Venetian and Florentine influences.
Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona will visit a mix of locales including Rome and Naples, plus French Riviera coastal towns like Villefranche and Cannes. During a seven-night cruise from Barcelona to Dover, England, Disney Cruise Line will make its first-ever visit to Porto, Portugal.
Additional new ports of call in northern Europe include Riga, the capital of Latvia; Nynashamn, Sweden, a beautiful seaside town just outside Stockholm; and Maloy, Norway, a charming coastal village bordered by silver-sand beaches and historic lighthouses.
Adventures in Alaska
Disney Wonder will return to Alaska for the 2022 summer season to explore the region’s natural 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.
First-Ever Summer Cruises from Miami
For the first time ever, families can sail out of Miami during the summer season, offering more opportunities to visit Castaway Cay. Every cruise from Miami in the summer of 2022 features a stop at Disney’s private island paradise. The 7 June voyage marks the Disney Dream’s inaugural cruise from Miami, as the ship has previously only homeported in Port Canaveral, Florida.
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.
Tropical Vacations from Port Canaveral
Tropical vacations to the Caribbean and Bahamas continue aboard the Disney Fantasy from Port Canaveral near the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Each Disney Fantasy voyage features a visit to Castaway Cay.
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 special 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 rainforests.
Even More Magic Aboard the Disney Wish
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 Disney Wish will showcase the immersive family entertainment, enchanting storytelling and unparalleled service that only Disney can deliver. The ship will be powered by liquified natural gas and will feature 1,250 guest staterooms. The ship will be slightly larger than Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
Bookings open to the public on 25 March 2021. More info on the Summer 2022 Itineraries page of disneycruise.com.
