Disney Cruise Line – new ports and destinations for Summer 2022 unveiled

The Disney Cruise Line may not have announced a specific date it plans to return to sailing, but it has started to share its itineraries for summer 2022. The destinations include the Greek Isles, Alaska, the Mediterranean, and, of course, the Caribbean.

There will be new ports in Greece, Portugal, Latvia, Norway, Sweden and Dominica, plus the first-ever summer sailings from Miami to the Bahamas, which will include Castaway Cay on the itinerary.

“While we prepare for a return to sea just as soon as the time is right, we continue to look to the future and develop more cruising options for families,” said Thomas Mazloum, president of Disney Cruise Line. “Offering this diverse new line-up of itineraries for the summer of 2022 shows our commitment to taking more guests to more destinations around the world as we plan for additional ships in the years ahead.”

You can reach out to your travel agent who can make a booking beginning March 25, 2021. If you don’t have an agent, we ask that you book through Stacey Frost, an authorized Disney Cruise Line travel planner, with Pixie Vacations. All bookings made with Stacey have no additional cost for you, but they help support The Disney Blog. Thank you.

Even More Magic Aboard the Disney Wish

Originally planned to sail in early 2022, the Disney Wish, the fifth ship in the Disney fleet, is now scheduled for its maiden voyage in summer 2022 due to pandemic-related delays at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Germany. 

At approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms, the ship will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. Interior concept art was released last year.

The Disney Wish is expected to sail out of Port Canaveral. Information on itineraries and bookings for this ship will be released at a later date.

Postponed Cruises

Currently all cruise itineraries are suspended through at least May 2021. The Disney Magic is currently on hiatus through August 10 while it undergoes a refurbishment.
