Disney Cruise Line Releases Itineraries for U.K. “Staycation” Cruises

Disney Cruise Line has now released the itineraries and additional details regarding their upcoming “staycation” sailings aboard the Disney Magic. Let’s take a moment to take a closer look at the details. Please keep in mind that these cruises are only available for residents of the United Kingdom.

The cruises will embark from four different ports in England, and will offer 2-, 3-, and 4-night voyages without stops at ports of call. The itineraries will include interactions with the Disney characters, including some of your favorite Marvel heroes, Toy Story friends, and Anna, Olaf and Elsa. A princess promenade will also occur during the sailings.

Theatre productions will occur during the sailings, and guests will be able to take advantage of onboard offerings such as the AquaDunk, AquaLab, and the adult-exclusive dining location, Palo. The Buena Vista Theatre will be showing Disney favorites as well as newer theatrical releases.

While Disney Cruise Line has not made a final statement regarding exact requirements for sailing, they have stated that COVID testing will play a part. Facial coverings will be required and physical distancing measures will be implemented onboard. Further details will be announced in the days ahead, but in the meantime, be sure to check out Jackie’s article from earlier this week to catch up on what we know thus far.
