Disney Cruise Line will call on seven new ports in Europe, beginning summer 2019, as well as sail its first, round-trip cruise from Rome.

New ports include: Gothenburg and Nynashamn in Stockholm, Sweden; Toulon in Provence and Brest, France; Cartagena, Spain; Fredericia, Denmark; and Belfast, Northern Ireland. Throughout the summer, the tour of Europe includes engagements in the Baltic, Norwegian fjords, Iceland, British Isles and the Mediterranean.

Additionally, Disney Cruise Line will debut an eight-night, round-trip cruise from Civitavecchia in Rome on June 14, 2019.

Travel advisors can upsell these European cruises with a pre-cruise package from Adventures by Disney. Three-night Short Escape packages are offered in Rome, Copenhagen and Barcelona, with activities such as an after-hours visit to the Vatican Museums or flamenco dancing.

The Disney Wonder will return to Alaska next year for the summer season. A variety of five-, seven- and nine-night itineraries will depart from Vancouver, Canada, with stops in Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Sitka, Icy Strait Point, Hubbard Glacier and Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska; and Victoria, Canada.

In addition to seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, Florida, the Disney Fantasy will embark on a three-night Bahamian cruise on Aug. 7; a six-night western Caribbean cruise departing June 30; an eight-night southern Caribbean cruise departing June 22; and an 11-night southern Caribbean cruise departing July 27.

The Disney Dream will sail a series of cruises that include two stops at Castaway Cay, Disney's private island. Castaway Club members and select Disney guests can book these new cruises before they go on sale to the general public on Mar. 8, 2018.
