It’s time to picture Mickey Mouse in his cute Viking-horns outfit. That’s because Disney Cruise Line has announced its newest destination: the Norwegian fjords.
Cruises to the Land of the Midnight Sun will set sail in June 2015 when the recently revamped Disney Magic, with its AquaDunk thrill slide and Marvel’s Avengers Academy, will do three sailings up toward the North Pole, all from Copenhagen.
Seven- and 9-day round-trip itineraries will cruise the Norwegian coast, while an 11-day itinerary will also visit Iceland (with an overnight in Reykjavik) and the remote Faroe Islands.
It’s no coincidence that Disney decided to head north with its newest itineraries. Frozen, Disney’s recent blockbuster hit, was inspired by the Norwegian fjords, which serve as a backdrop in the animated film. So along with Mickey and friends, expect characters from Frozen to make appearances on the sailings as well.
The line says that the cruises will showcase coastal Norway’s beautiful mountains and fjords and introduce passengers to Scandinavian culture and Viking history.
This year, Disney Magic is exploring the Mediterranean, including introducing new Greek Isles itineraries from Venice, as well as cruising from Barcelona.Disney Magic will spend the rest of summer 2015 in the Baltics on itineraries that include St. Petersburg, Russia, and Helsinki, Finland, before returning to the Mediterranean in August.
Bookings for the 2015 Norway and Baltics cruises open tomorrow.
