Disney Cruise Line is sailing the Baltic for the very first time this summer! The Northern European itinerary will feature unique cultural entertainment, special activities and exclusive culinary offerings onboard the Disney Magic.
For the first time ever, we are visiting St. Petersburg, Russia, where a magical, one-of-a-kind Port Adventure will bring local history and stories to life with the help of some Disney friends. The majestic Catherine Palace provides the setting for an elaborate Royal Ball where Guests are treated like royalty.
The estate, which served as Russia’s imperial family summer residence for more than 200 years, is the stage for a grand gala hosted by Disney princesses such as Cinderella, Snow White and Belle. Arriving by horse-drawn carriages, the princesses entertain guests in the gilded Grand Ballroom while live musicians add to the ambiance and lead guests in song and dance.
Another St. Petersburg Port Adventure gives Guests a chance to participate in a master class with ballet dancers from the famous Russian Ballet Theater, right onboard the Disney Magic. The dancers will share some dancing tips, perform select numbers and autograph keepsake posters for Guests.
Children discover more about local cultures and customs during Youth Activities. Scandinavian folklore comes to life as kids mold their own troll figure out of clay and decoratively paint small boxes as part of tole painting. Children can also customize their own set of Russian nesting dolls.
For food lovers, the Northern European sailings have some special culinary treats in store with two exclusive new menus: Flavours of Scandinavia and Dinner of the Czars. Scandinavia specialties include Jarlsberg cheese and carrot soufflé, juniper-spiced elk tenderloin and lingonberry and vanilla cream. Russian-inspired cuisine includes potato-cheese Russian ravioli, borscht, chicken Kiev and crepes Romanoff.
