The Disney Cruise Line prides itself on adding new destinations and different trips every year. The itineraries for 2014 are starting to be released, so let’s take a look at the new places and experiences on the ticket for next year.
First up, the Disney Cruise line is adding a whole new south Caribbean cruise. The highlight of the trip is that it’ll be heading to Puerto Rico for the first time ever. The Disney Magic will leave from San Juan on a new 7-night south Caribbean cruise that will also visit St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Kitts, Grenada, and Antigua.
Puerto Rico will also be a destination in two other cruises in 2014: another 7-night tour of the eastern Caribbean, stopping at the U.S. Virgin Islands, Castaway Cay, San Juan, and St. Maarten. Most exciting of all, however, is the Disney Magic’s 14-night transatlantic cruise. Guests will board at Barcelona, Spain, and stop at Malaga in Spain, the Canary Islands, Antigua, St. Maarten, and St. Kitts, before disembarking in San Juan.
The Disney Magic has some additional new tours up for Europe in 2014 as well. It’s offering cruises anywhere from four to twelve nights, all in the Mediterranean – restarting tours there after taking a break for a while. Brand new stops on the tour include new locations in Mykonos, Greece, and Sicily. Other, more familiar stops on 2014’s European cruises include Rome, Athens, Corfu (Greece), Florence and Pisa, Croatia, Gibraltar, and Kusadasi (Turkey).
Many of the Mediterranean tours will depart from Venice for the first time. This give guests more time to explore the historic city, as well as an overall chance to see more of the Greek Isles. Depending on the length of your tour, a total of four destinations in Greece will be visited: those aforementioned, plus Crete, and Katakolon, from which guests can visit Olympia, the site of the ancient Greek Olympic games.
Last up, the Disney Cruise line will be returning to Alaska yet again in the summer. It will visit popular stops like Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and the Tracy Arm Fjord. For the first time, the Cruise Line is offering nine-night tours of Alaska, which will also allow guests to visit Sitka. It’s a small town in Alaska with a lot of history. Alaskan cruises will depart from Vancouver.
As always, any fans of Disney Cruises, or those looking to take one for the first time, should always pay attention to new destinations and changes. Bookings for 2014 are now open, so for more information, pricing, and reservations, head to the official Disney Cruise Line website.
