Disney launches UK summer cruises


Ahoy there captain: Disney Cruises is launching summer voyages for UK holidaymakers

Great news for Disney fans. Mickey Mouse is coming to the UK as Disney launches short summer cruises in British waters. They will go on sale in April and, unlike many other liners running UK cruises, passengers will not need to have had both Covid vaccines.

Voyages on Disney Magic will mostly be two or three nights, but there are also four-night round trips from Southampton, Liverpool, Newcastle and London Tilbury. So once on board, with health and safety measures in place, there will be no getting off.

Cruise boss Thomas Mazioum said: “Our teams are bringing tremendous ingenuity and fun to these new cruises, tailoring them with care to the times we are living in, yet filling them with everything you’d expect from Disney, from great service and entertainment to immersive dining experiences and magic for the whole family.”

Disney is implementing multiple layers of health and safety measures considering guidance from the UK government, health authorities and medical experts. This includes COVID-19 testing, health screenings, face coverings, reduced guest capacity, physical distancing and enhanced cleaning.

Holidaymakers on Disney Magic will enjoy dazzling entertainment and a variety of included dining options, family pools and waterslides, kids’ clubs and adult-only retreats such as a secluded pool and spa, a lively entertainment district and a fine-dining restaurant.

There will be a celebration with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their pals, a Frozen flurry of fun with Anna, Elsa and Olaf, and an epic encounter with Marvel’s greatest Super Heroes.

And there will be a chance to get physically distanced photos with Captain Mickey, enjoy a royal promenade with Disney Princesses or see favourite Toy Story pals.
