In summer 2020, Disney Cruise Line will make its long-awaited return to Greece and will introduce five new ports of call in Europe.

After a five-year hiatus, the Disney Magic will return to Greece as part of three Mediterranean voyages departing from Rome. The itineraries – one 12-night and two nine-night cruises – will make stops at destinations like Piraeus, Katakolon; and the islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Crete.

Each Mediterranean itinerary combines a selection of stops in Greece with visits to other cities in the region. Two of the sailings include a new port of call in Messina, Italy, where guests can visit landmarks in Sicily such as Mount Etna (the highest and most active volcano in Europe) or the Piazza del Duomo (the city’s historic center). The third sailing features a return to Dubrovnik, Croatia, for the first time in five years.

Additional new ports of call in Europe include: Gdynia, Poland; Nordfjordeid, Norway; Plymouth, England; and Zeebrugge, Belgium.

The trips are part of the Disney Magic’s grand tour of Europe, taking place in the summer of 2020, which begin with sailings through the Mediterranean and Greek Isles before heading to northern Europe in late summer for cruises to the Baltic, British Isles and Norwegian fjords.

Caribbean and Alaska, too
Along with the expanded European season aboard the Disney Magic, the fleet will also sail to Alaska, the Caribbean and the Bahamas.

In 2020, the Disney Wonder will return to Alaska for the summer season with seven-night itineraries departing from Vancouver, Canada — including visits to Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point, and Dawes Glacier.

As for the Caribbean, in addition to seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, near Orlando, Florida, the Disney Fantasy will embark on a variety of itineraries to the Caribbean and Bahamas throughout the summer of 2020. These include five- and nine-night Caribbean sailings; and three-, four- and five-night Bahamian cruises —and three of which feature two stops at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.

The Disney Dream will also visit Castaway Cay with three-, four- and five-night Bahamian cruises, including a series of sailings with two calls on the private island paradise.

Bookings for 2020 cruises open on Mar. 7, 2019.
