Captain Marco Nogara
It’s my pleasure to introduce the newest Captain aboard Disney Cruise Line – Marco Nogara!

As we continue to grow the Disney Cruise Line business, more ships, mean more Captains and Marco joins an elite line-up at Disney Cruise Line, as our sixth Captain.

A native of Venice, Italy, Marco fell in love with the sea early on and now enjoys an extensive 24-year career in the maritime industry commanding cruise ships worldwide from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean. His most recent post was aboard Carnival cruise ships, where he served as Captain for 12 years. Marco also has experience in the ship-building process, which is certain to come in handy for Disney’s two new ships that are currently under construction, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

Over the next few months, Marco will become familiar with the shipboard and shoreside operations at Disney and will eventually find his new home aboard one of the Disney ships as Master in December. Be sure to say hello to Captain Marco when you see him out on the high seas!

Here are a few of Captain Marco’s Disney favorites…

  • Disney character: Donald Duck
  • Disney movie: “Toy Story”
  • Disney attraction: Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Disney theme park: Epcot


  • Sailed with him on the Carnival Glory. Glad to have him join the fine ranks with Captain Henry, Captain Tom, and Captain John.

  • Welcome aboard Captain….looking forward to sailing in May 2011.
