Today we announced our itineraries for the summer of 2017, including first-time visits to new destinations in Alaska and Europe, in addition to a return to Norway, the British Isles, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and the Bahamas. Here are the details on new summer fun your family can expect when sailing with us next year.
New Alaska Itinerary: Icy Strait Point and Hubbard Glacier
For the first time, we’ll take guests to Alaska’s Icy Strait Point and Hubbard Glacier. These dramatic locations are part of a new nine-night itinerary on the Disney Wonder. Departing from Vancouver, British Columbia, on July 24, 2017, this itinerary also sails to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Tracy Arm Fjord.
Icy Strait Point offers a variety of Alaska nature adventures, including a zip line attraction that is one of the longest and highest zip lines in the world. Nearby, Glacier Bay National Park is a spectacular highlight of Alaska’s Inside Passage and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another highlight of this cruise is seeing Hubbard Glacier, the largest and most active tidewater glacier in North America. Displaying extraordinary blue hues and immense beauty, this spectacular glacier is more than six miles wide where it meets the ocean.
A new seven-night Alaska sailing from Vancouver, departing July 17, 2017, includes a call on Icy Strait Point, in addition to Tracy Arm, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. On Aug. 2, 2017, the Disney Wonder will sail its first five-night Alaska cruise from Vancouver to Tracy Arm and Ketchikan.
New Europe Destinations: Amsterdam and Stonehenge
Also for the first time, we’ll visit Amsterdam, Netherlands, known for its elaborate canal system, tulip fields, windmills and world-class museums housing works by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh.
On May 13, 2017, the Disney Magic embarks on a 15-night transatlantic crossing from Port Canaveral, Florida, to Copenhagen, with a stop in Amsterdam along the way. This itinerary also includes a call on Portland, England – another first-time port for Disney Cruise Line. Portland is a short distance from Stonehenge, the prehistoric ring of standing stones monument that is one of the Seven Wonders of the Medieval World.
A visit to Amsterdam also will be part of a 10-night northern Europe itinerary that departs June 18, 2017, from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Dover, England. Other ports on this sailing include Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany; Stockholm, Sweden; Helsinki, Finland; St. Petersburg, Russia; and Tallinn, Estonia.
The grand tour of Europe continues throughout the summer with limited engagements in the Baltic, Norwegian fjords, Iceland, British Isles and the Mediterranean.
New Disney Fantasy Itineraries: Southern Caribbean
The Disney Fantasy will sail from Port Canaveral on longer itineraries for the first time – new 10- and 11-night cruises to the southern Caribbean.
On June 17, 2017, a new 11-night itinerary will visit Aruba, Barbados, Martinique, St. Kitts, Tortola and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. On June 28, 2017, a new 10-night itinerary will call on Aruba, Curacao, St. Kitts, Tortola and Castaway Cay.
More Castaway Cay
As you probably know, Castaway Cay, our private island in the Bahamas, is consistently rated a top port-of-call by our guests. To give you more time at this island paradise, select Disney Dream sailings from Port Canaveral will include two stops at Castaway Cay.
Special five-night sailings, departing June 2, 11, 16, 25, 30 and July 9, 2017, will call on Castaway Cay twice and include a stop in Nassau, Bahamas. Special four-night sailings, departing June 7, 21 and July 5, 2017, will visit Castaway Cay twice, also with a stop in Nassau.
Bookings open to the public April 14, 2016. More details on the newly announced itineraries can be found on the Ports and Itineraries for 2017 page of disneycruise.com.
I want to book a Caribbean Cruise for late August 2017. What month’s will be available?
I love the double Castaway Cay days, just wish it would go to Key West or somewhere other than Nassau.
Hope to see more cruises from New York.
Would love to see cruises out of LA again!
Would love to see Hawaii add back to the Itinerary
So awesome… I can’t wait to take my first cruise and make it a transatlantic one.
Would love to see more cruises departing from New York, especially in the summer.
Please have cruises depart from New York next summer!!
Please come to California for varied trips – Mexico, Columbia, etc. We would also like to see Hawaiian cruises. And we look forward to doing the transatlantic and seeing the Azores! – why not break up the transatlantic cruise further and stop in Bermuda also?
Why not have more summer cruises so that families could go together? These would have to be June or July, as our kids are in school the other months. You have listed very few in the summer months. How about the Mexican Riviera in the summer? Panama Canal?? Everything we are interested in is not available in the summertime. You are Disney, after all. Doesn’t that imply cruises for kids???!!!!
Please, please have cruises out of Boston going to Bahamas and Caribbean!
We would love to have family cruises out of California to Hawaii and Mexico.
