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.

Disney Cruise Line Baltic Cruises

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.

  • Wow always wanted to take a Disney Cruise and go to Russia. Wow! What a great gift to give my daughter for her Graduation next year 2011. Love Russian Ballet. Can not wait to give such nice surprise to her. Thank You for double Dream coming true. Hugs!

  • Can’t wait until the July 6th sailing… and the return of those on the first cruise to let us know how awesome things were… Have already signed up for the Master Ballet Class and a night at the Mariinsky Theater with the Kirov Ballet Comapany dancing Swan Lake…

  • We would love to take one of these cruises — it’s been our dream choice for years and we were ecstatic when we heard Disney had added that area to their lineup — but we can’t afford it this year with the airfare require to get to England. I’m a little worried we’ve missed our chance since they’re not on the 2011 schedule. Maybe 2012? We’d start saving up now if we knew it would be offered again.

  • I would love to do this with my family, but we just returned from a week at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. I hpoe this is available next summer or the one after. This just sounds too amazing to be available for only one year.

  • Wow, it all sounds amazing. I know my daughter would love the kids activities. I definitely hope this itinerary is back in the future – My husband and I really wanted to do it but we couldn’t make it work budget-wise this year.

  • Oh wow! We plan on going in 2012… assuming they still have it. Fingers crossed!

  • Anxious to find out what day these fun Youth Activities will be, my nieces won’t want to miss out on all the painting! Hope it isn’t on a port day!

  • Our whole family will be on this cruise…CAN’T WAIT!!!

  • My child would love making his own nesting doll. I personally would like to take the ballet class.

  • Sounds wonderful! My ballerina granddaughter would love it!

  • We’ll be on the first Baltic cruise — can’t wait!! Hoping for some adult activities too — Vodka tasting in Russia?? 🙂
