Filed in: Community, Disney Magic

CELEBRATION, Fla. (June 6, 2016) – During a 12-night Britain and Ireland cruise from Dover, England this week, the Disney Magic will celebrate first-call visits in select ports of call throughout the voyage.

  • Tuesday, June 7 – Newcastle, England
  • Wednesday, June 8 – Invergordon, Scotland
  • Saturday, June 11 – Greenock, Scotland
  • Wednesday, June 15 – Le Havre, France
  • Thursday, June 16 – St. Peter Port, Guernsey

During each of these maiden stops, Captain Andy McRonald and shipboard officials will invite community leaders and local officials onboard the 2,700 passenger vessel  for a traditional maritime plaque exchange ceremony to welcome the new ship and guests to port.

“These inaugural calls are not only a milestone in our Disney Cruise Line history, they give our guests the opportunity to create even more magical memories when sailing with us. In one voyage alone, they’ll experience a mix of new cultures, explore city streets and be immersed in the grandeur of sweeping country sides,” said Captain Andy McRonald.

In England and Scotland, guests will admire a mix of old world landmarks and modern innovations at the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Cawdor Castle, and Victoria Tower. In France, they’ll recount the days of World War II battles in Le Havre, and in Guernsey, enjoy the picturesque natural wonders of St. Peter Port.

Throughout the summer season, the Disney Magic embarks on 13 European voyages with return trips to Newcastle, England during a 12-night cruise in June and Invergordon, Scotland on a 12-night cruise in July.
