While Disney CEO Bob Chapek said that he hopes Disney Cruise Line will begin sailing again this fall, depending on vaccine and coronavirus case numbers. The announcement today of the 2022 cruise itineraries shows that Disney is preparing to bring Guests abroad their ships once again, and as soon as possible!

Disney Cruise Line took to Instagram to share this video with fans to get them excited about the 2022 sailings:

Just announced! In summer 2022, we’ll be cruising to dream destinations like Alaska, Norway and even returning to Greece.

Here is what the Disney Cruise Line president Thomas Mazloum had to say about the 2022 itineraries:

“While we prepare for a return to sea just as soon as the time is right, we continue to look to the future and develop more cruising options for families, Offering this diverse new line-up of itineraries for the summer of 2022 shows our commitment to taking more guests to more destinations around the world as we plan for additional ships in the years ahead.”

What great news! We have missed cruising, and we know that you have missed cruising too, so here is what we can look forward to in 2022:

The Disney Wonder will sail to Alaska which will depart from Vancouver and are seven nights. Disney has said that two cruises will visit Icy Strait Point instead of Skagway, which the other cruises will visit.

For the first time, Disney will be sailing in the summer out of Miami. Disney Cruise Line has sailed out of Miami before but never during the summer. This means more cruises will be going to Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island which is a big hit among fans.

The Disney Fantasy will sail out of Port Canaveral which is the closest port to Disney World. The Disney Fantasy will take Guests on various itineraries, including visiting the Caribbean and Bahamas. These cruises will be seven nights, five nights, and a nine-night cruise! Lots to choose from when sailing out of Port Canaveral.

Disney adds that each of these cruises will stop at Castaway Cay.

Disney reaffirms that the newest ship to join the fleet, the Disney Wish, will be sailing in the summer of 2022 and that more information will come soon!

The Disney wish is what all Disney Cruise Line fans have been waiting for, and we anticipate bookings on the wish will go quickly once they are announced. Stay tuned to Inside the Magic for the latest updates on the Disney Wish.

If you feel like extending your trip, Disney also teased that Guests can book a pre-cruise excursion with adventures by Disney. What a great way to experience both a Disney Cruise and Adventures by Disney?

Summer sailings out of Miami to the incomparable Castaway Cay is great news, made even more convenient by the fact work is quickly being done on the Brightline train that will connect Disney to the Orlando International Airport and Miami. Perhaps if 2022 Summer Miami sailings go well they will continue into Summer 2023 and we can enjoy taking the Brightline to Disney World once we are done with our Cruise, or before we sail!

We will have to wait and see the state of the world in 2022 to see if masks and social distancing will still be in effect on cruises. With the successful roll-out of vaccines, things are looking up for theme parks and cruises. Even Disneyland which was closed for a year has finally been able to announce a reopening date. 

Are you excited to get back to cruising as early as this Fall? Will you be booking a Summer 2022 cruise on Disney Cruise Line? Let us know in the comments!
