Whilst the aviation industry takes up most of the column inches with stories of how it is struggling with the pandemic, the cruise industry has also suffered enormously over the past year. With Covid-19 outbreaks on cruises, sailing banned in several locations and most fleets grounded, it has been a tough year for all involved.

However, Disney Cruise Line have recently helped to restore some cheer by announcing their 2022 itinerary, featuring new destinations that are bound to get Disneyphiles and cruisegoers alike excited for what’s in store. Here’s a look at what they announced.

Disney Cruise Line Announces 2022 Itineraries With New Destinations

Disney’s New Destinations – Information For Travelers

March has been a bright month in an otherwise gloomy year for American Disney fans. Building on earlier news that Disneyland California was set to reopen, Disney Cruises Line announced their latest schedule this week, featuring several new destinations around the world.

Cruise ship Disney Magic will now visit five new ports on its tour of Europe in 2022 – Chania, Greece; Porto, Portugal; Riga, Latvia; Maloy, Norway and Nynashamn, Sweden. The ship will set sail through the Greek Isles and Mediterranean, visiting wonderful locations such as Santorini, Barcelona and Naples, before heading on to northern Europe.

There are also plenty of trips planned closer to home in 2022. For the first time, Disney will see a cruise depart from Miami, heading off on 3-5 day tours that will take in locations such as the Bahamas, Cozumel in Mexico and Castaway Cay, Disney’s own private island.

Whilst cruises are currently banned from sailing through Canada and Alaska, Disney has scheduled for its ship Disney Wonder to sail from Vancouver through to Alaska in 2022, stopping at places such as Dawes Glacier, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan along the way. For cruisegoers in search of warmer climes, the Disney Fantasy will be leaving from Florida and heading for various Caribbean locations.

At present, Disney’s ships are currently docked, as the company awaits further guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and hones its coronavirus protocols. The company is set to debut its newest ship, the Disney wish, in 2022, but is yet to confirm which routes it will be taking.

Disney Controversy

Whilst this news has been a glimmer of hope for many, Disney Cruise Line has had a trying time of late. The company is facing four lawsuits from passengers who claimed to have caught coronavirus whilst on board one of the ships. The plaintiffs claim that Disney Cruise Line did not offer them the chance to cancel or reschedule their cruises, leaving them with little choice but to take part on the cruise, and it was also alleged that the company did not adequately safeguard against the virus.

Disney Cruise Lines has denied the allegations, stating that “No guests or Crew reported symptoms of Covid-19 while aboard the Disney Fantasy,” and that they “communicated health and safety information with guests in advance of and during their sailing and had numerous protocols in place at the time.”
