Disney Cruise Line Announces Summer 2016 Itineraries

Disney Cruise Line has announced its Summer 2016 cruise schedule. The Disney Magic will again be sailing Northern Europe and the Mediterranean, with new itineraries that include a 12-night British Isles cruise, a 12-night Iceland and Norway voyage, and a 7-night Norwegian Fjords visit. The ship will again depart from Dover, England; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Barcelona, Spain. Every sailing will be one-of-a-kind with the exception of the 7-night Mediterranean cruise. The fall 2016 schedule is still under wraps, yet the cruise line is already slated to visit a record 65 ports of call in 2016, 11 of which are first-time visits! The summer also offers the old, familar itineraries on the Disney Wonder (Alaska), Disney Dream (Bahamas), and Disney Fantasy (Caribbean). The one noteworty difference is that the Wonder's Alaskan season ends in mid-August, presumably so the ship can get her expected make-over (perhaps in a Vancouver shipyard). Reservations opened to the public on March 26, 2015.
