Disney Cruise has announced a range of firsts, with a flurry of new locations accessible via a family-friendly Disney cruise route from Southampton. Highlights of the new routes include a full tour of the British Isles, a new stop in La Rochelle in France, and two new ports in Nor way, Skjolden and Sandnes.
Although such cruises have been successful in the United States and other areas of the world for years, this will be the first time Disney fans will be able to sail around the Mediterranean and the British Isles on a Disney cruise ship.
“We are thrilled to have five ships at sea in summer 2023 with a wide array of destinations for families to enjoy,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president & general manager of Disney Cruise Line told Cruise Industry News. “These Disney Cruise Line sailings will take families on summer adventures in ways that only Disney can do, delighting guests of all ages with dazzling entertainment, world-class dining, unique character encounters, the ease and indulgence of carefree days at sea and the uncompromising guest service that defines a Disney vacation.”
