Disney Cruise Line is sailing again!  Kind of.  Sort of.  In a limited kind of way.  But they are sailing!!

Disney announced today that the Disney Magic will sail in U.K. waters this summer, with 2-, 3-, and 4-night roundtrip sailings from Liverpool, London Tilbury, Newcastle, and Southampton!  Disney is referring to these sailings as “Staycations”, and the ship will not stop in any ports.

That doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty to do and enjoy though.  Thomas Mazloum, president of Disney Cruise Line 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.”

There will be nighttime shows, the pools will be open, as well as the spa, Palo, and night district for adults.  Disney said there will be events with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their pals, Anna, Elsa, and Olaf, and even Marvel’s greatest superheroes.  There will also be physically distanced character photos with Captain Mickey, and a royal promenade with Disney Princesses!

With guidance from the U.K. government, health authorities, and medical experts, Disney is implementing enhanced safety measures including COVID-19 testing, health screenings, face coverings, reduced guest capacity, physical distancing, and enhanced cleaning.

These sailings will go on sale in April pending the issuance of U.K. government guidelines and authorizations.

It’s exciting to see the return to cruising taking another step forward!
