Today we revealed our 2016 summer sailings, announcing our first-ever British Isles cruise, plus ports of call in more than 15 European countries! In addition to the British Isles, our tour of Europe includes cruises in the Baltic, Norwegian Fjords, Iceland, Greek Isles and the Mediterranean. Pretty incredible, right?!

Disney Cruise Line Charts New Course for British Isles

Our 12-night British Isles voyage on the Disney Magic departs from Dover, England, visiting destinations in Scotland, Ireland, France and England. I can’t possibly highlight all of the cool things you’ll experience on this cruise, but here’s a sampling:

  1. The majestic beauty, iconic castles and Highland culture of Scotland
  2. The merry, cosmopolitan city of Dublin, Ireland
  3. The culturally rich and romantic Paris, France
  4. The birthplace of the Beatles and the British Invasion in Liverpool, England
  5. The charming countryside of Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands

Of course Europe isn’t the only awesome locale we’re taking you to in the summer of 2016. We’re also revisiting favorite destinations elsewhere around the globe including Alaska, the Caribbean and the Bahamas. In this video, Cruise Director Brent gives us a sneak peek at where you can sail with us next year …

  • Ireland and scotland I hope

  • This is a dream trip. Heading out on 2nd DCL cruise next month, and with the exception of the date as kids are still in school, this looks absotuletly amazing!

  • @Maureen. FYI: The Republic of Ireland is, in fact, part of the British Isles. It is not, however, part of Great Britain or the UK

  • I was hoping for sailings out of the upper east coast. It is not very magical to start and end a vacation with the TSA.

  • When does the booking begin?
    I’ll start saving again after we get back from this year’s cruise to the Norwegian Fjords.

  • I am so excited about this new itinerary, especially the addition of France! We typically sail the Eastern/Western Caribbean itineraries on DCL and wanted to make our Gold cruise in 2016 something special. This fits the bill!

  • The Republic of Ireland is NOT part of the British isle. How about an All Ireland and perhaps Scotland tour! Announce it and I’m booking!

  • Calling Travel Agent Right now!!!

  • Deirdre you can check disney cruise line website for dates, Although the dates were announced today, booking will not being until March 25. On Wednesday, Platinum & Gold Castaway Club members will be able to call in or have their travel agents book sailings. On Thursday, March 26th Silver Castaway Club members as well as first time cruisers will be able to book

  • When will we get the dates/itineraries?

  • Awesome!

  • Sounds like fun. I think we may book it… or maybe Norway, just can’t decide.

  • No west coast cruises, AGAIN! No love for California huh DCL?

  • Can’t wait to see the Disney Magic on the river Mersey! =0)

  • Can’t wait…..I will definitely be there!!!!
