Disney Cruise Line to return to Greece for Summer 2020 season

CELEBRATION, FL — Disney Cruise Line is heading back to Greece, among other popular destinations, for its summer 2020 cruise season.

Along with its long-awaited return to Greece and the addition of five first-time ports of call in Europe, the cruise line has announced an expanded European season aboard the Disney Magic as well as sailings to Alaska, the Caribbean and Bahamas.

Bookings open to the public on March 7, 2019.

Here’s an overview of what’s on offer in 2020:

EUROPE

After a five-year hiatus, the Disney Magic will return to Greece as part of three special Mediterranean voyages departing from Rome. During one 12-night and two nine-night cruises, guests will visit Piraeus, Katakolon and the islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Crete. Each of these Med itineraries combines a selection of stops in Greece with visits to other notable cities in the region. Two of the sailings include a new port of call in Messina, Italy, while a third 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. This new collection of destinations is part of the Disney Magic’s grand tour of Europe in summer 2020, which begins with sailings through the Mediterranean and Greek Isles before heading to northern Europe for cruises to the Baltic, British Isles and Norwegian fjords.


ALASKA

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


CARIBBEAN & BAHAMAS

In addition to seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, 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, along with three-, four- and five-night Bahamian cruises, three of which feature two stops at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.

The Disney Dream will provide even more opportunities for guests to visit Castaway Cay in the summer of 2020 with three-, four- and five-night Bahamian cruises, including a series of sailings with two calls on the private island paradise.
