In the summer of 1998, the Disney Magic set sail on her maiden voyage. Since then, families at sea have experienced Disney stories and a colorful entertainment program. Disney Cruise Line is celebrating its 25th anniversary next year and is currently preparing extensive campaigns.

First time in Europe

From May to September 2023, the anniversary celebrations will take place as part of special trips on all five ships – guests can look forward to special entertainment offers and experiences.

As part of these celebrations, the Disney Dream will make its debut in Europe, cruising European waters from May 7th to September 17th, 2023. From the sun-kissed, culture-rich Mediterranean Sea to a ‘Frozen – Totally Unabashed’ inspired cruise from Copenhagen to the Norwegian fjords.

Disney Magic and Disney Fantasy will cruise Miami and Port Canaveral, respectively, to the Bahamas and the Caribbean this summer. The Disney Wonder will then sail from Vancouver to Alaska, with stops in Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan.

Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, Disney Wish, will sail from Port Canaveral to Nassau, Bahamas and Castaway Cay from May 1 to September 8, 2023.

Festive surprises on board

On all trips, passengers experience the celebrations for the 25th anniversary. The magic of Disney and moments with the Disney characters and diverse stage shows are included.

The program includes the following special activities:

  • Captain Minnie and Captain Mickey are changing their clothes for the occasion. Her coordinated, lustrous looks feature shimmering, multicolored fabrics and designs reminiscent of ocean waves.
  • Disney Cruise Line is introducing its own song as the soundtrack for the celebrations. The song combines nostalgic memories of past trips with the anticipation of new family adventures. The melody can be heard during the summer trips.
  • New entertainment offers and activities for the whole family are exclusively on the program. Highlights include specially created sparkling evening events.
  • The chef celebrates with you: throughout the journey, guests discover culinary highlights, from imaginative desserts to delicious cocktails.
  • Inspired by the magical glow of the sun reflecting off the turquoise water, Disney Cruise Line creates its own collection of clothing, accessories and keepsakes. The special product line is called “Shimmering Seas”.
