Scheduled for two departures in 2023 (June and July), the 10-day Arctic Expedition Cruises will sail on a charted polar expedition ship with PONANT.

The Arctic adventure will operate from Oslo, Norway with an overnight stay before flying to Svalbard to board Le Boreal to explore Northern Norway and the Arctic. While in Longyearbyen, the largest town of Norway’s Svalbard archipelago and the northernmost settlement on the planet with a permanent population of more than 1,000, guests will further explore this former mining town.

Guests will view the glaciers of this region’s most beautiful fjord, Kongsfjorden and embark on daily boat excursions where they may see some of the region’s unique wildlife including polar bears, reindeer, arctic foxes and walruses.

Adventures by Disney has also added three departures for the 12-day Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises which also sail with PONANT. The added itineraries will depart in December 2022 and early 2023.

This adventure also provides guests with the option to add a 4-day Buenos Aires Escape that will highlight must-see attractions as well as the hidden gems of Argentina’s capital.

Also returning for a second year of sailing in 2023 is the 9-day Adventures by Disney Galápagos Islands Expedition Cruise sailing aboard the boutique expedition ship, the Galápagos Legend. Five departures have been added which will explore the islands and ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands, run in collaboration with Go Galápagos.

There is also an Amazon Escape to tag onto the Galapagos voyage, which includes either three- or four-nights on the Anakonda river boat.
