I don’t know about you, but two of my favorite things in life are (drum roll please) Disney Cruise Line and summer! If you’re also like me and already looking for vacation options for your family next year, I have some great news for you – Disney Cruise Line will offer a variety of enchanting vacations in summer 2023, including cruises to Europe, Alaska, the Bahamas and Caribbean.
good news doesn’t stop there – if you want the rich culture and history of
Europe, your ship has come in! For the first time ever, the Disney Dream will
be heading east to Europe, calling on a wide variety of destinations among the
most treasured in the world.
Are flip-flops and white sand beaches more your speed? Head to the sunshine state where three ships, including the all-new Disney Wish, will cruise to the dreamiest tropical destinations. If Alaska fires your adventurous spirit, set sail on the Disney Wonder for a surreal landscape of spectacular glaciers, soaring eagles, breaching whales and towns with a Gold Rush past.
addition to taking your family to exciting destinations, each and every voyage
in summer 2023 also includes a healthy dose of Disney magic! No matter where
you are in the world, your family will also receive Disney Cruise Line’s signature
service, along with Broadway-style shows, themed dining, character encounters
and activities for everyone in the family.
