‘Frozen’ Friends Join Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures in Norway

For the first time in forever, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff are joining us ashore for a one-of-a-kind family Port Adventure! When we call on Ålesund, Norway during our Norwegian fjord sailings this summer, you’ll have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit with these Disney friends from the neighboring kingdom of Arendelle.


Your adventure begins at a charming countryside village, recreated with buildings dating back to the 1800s. Here, at the outdoor Sunnmøre Museum, only Disney cruisers are invited to a Norwegian summer celebration where the festivities culminate with the arrival of the beloved royal sisters and their ice-loving companion.


At this outdoor celebration, you’re invited to dance to folkloric tunes from local musicians, play old-fashioned games and explore the beautiful grounds and historic homes. You’ll also get to sample tasty Norwegian specialties, including svele, a traditional sweet pancake from the region. The photo opportunities will be plenty, when visiting with the many locals wearing traditional Norwegian outfits and the village’s beautiful Fjord horse, and of course, during your personal meet-and-greets with our special “Frozen” friends.

This Disney-exclusive Port Adventure marks Anna, Elsa and Kristoff’s very first visit to the land that inspired their story. Who’s ready to bring back summer so we can get this party started?


  • Too bad Disney did not have enough foresight to adequately assess the popularity of this shore excursion. At 1201AM on the first day we were allowed to book this excursion, it was sold out. You can imagine the distress of my children aged 7 and 10 when I told them that they would not be able to see Anna and Elsa! I contacted DCL and they simply remarked that there was “nothing they could do.” Of course, when we booked the cruise, we had no idea that Disney did not have a first come, first served policy. Just like in the parks, there are always little inside deals and programs and anyone who’s never sailed with DCL would not know. Thanks Disney! P.S. The cruise has not yet sold out; why in the world do they keep advertising the excursion? Could it be a case of bait and switch?

  • When can we start booking for Northern European cruises, the web site does not list this destination as an option (although I may be missing it as well). Thanks!

  • Congratulations Arnaldo!

    You and your team continue to strive and select the most exciting itineraries possible! Not only that, but the Port Adventures provide interesting, exciting and immersive experiences for all guests. We are testament to that travelling with our special needs son who was actively engaged in every Mediterranean Port Adventure by all tour guides.

    The pacing, rest breaks and meals provided were simply outstanding and well thought out on the excursions.

    It was also a great pleasure to have met you in person aboard the Disney Magic last July sailing from Venice.

    Continue the excellent work, I so look forward to more of your blog posts here and my next cruise sailing the exciting Star Wars Day at Sea next January.

    Best regards,

  • Save 4 spots for us! my sons are so looking forward to this.
