The Disney Cruise Line next year will be returning to Greece for the first time in five years, the company announced today as part of its seasonal reveal of new itineraries. Bookings for Disney's Greek cruises and other summer 2020 sailings will open to the public in one week, on March 7. Disney's Castaway Club members will be able to book earlier, based on their club status.
The Disney Magic will sail from Rome on one 12-night and two nine-night cruises to Greece, calling on ports including Piraeus, the gateway to Athens; Katakolon, near ancient Olympia; and the islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Crete. Other destinations on the cruises will include Sicily or Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Before the Greek cruises, the Magic will be sailing from Barcelona visiting ports in Italy. After sailing the Mediterranean, the Magic will head north for additional European cruises, sailing from Dover and Copenhagen, with calls including Gdansk, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Helsinki, Bruges, or Amsterdam, among other ports. Additional cruises will including sailings through the Norwegian fjords and around the British isles.
Adventures by Disney will be packaging pre-cruise "Escape" tours with the Disney Magic's European sailings, with excursions to Barcelona, Rome, London, or Copenhagen, in addition to offering on-shore activities during the cruises.
While the Magic is in Europe, the Disney Wonder will spend summer 2020 sailing to Alaska, with seven-night itineraries from Vancouver, Canada, sailing to Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan in Alaska. Adventures by Disney also will be offering cruise packages during these itineraries, as well.
The Disney Vacation Club will host a members-only cruise in 2020, which will be a seven-night Alaska sailing aboard the Disney Wonder on Aug. 24. Bookings will open to Disney Vacation Club members on April 6.
Finally, the Disney Dream and Fantasy will sail the Caribbean during the summer of 2020, with three-, four-, and five-night Bahamian cruises, including stops on Castaway Cay.

The Disney Magic is a small second rate boat. I sailed on it after its major refurbishment a few years ago and was vastly disappointed.
Those itineraries would be different story on the Fantasy or Dream.
Overall I have stopped crusing with Disney as their prices are out of control. We have cruised with RCL for the last few years and think of it as a just as good if not better experience.
