Cruise ship Disney Magic will be making its first ever voyages to the Norwegian fjords – inspiration for the animated adventure Frozen – in 2015. The 1,750-passenger ship will also be coming back to the UK, with cruises starting and ending in the port of Dover.
Magic, built in 1998 and given a multi-million pound makeover last year, will also be sailing in the Baltic and – another first – on a cruise to Iceland and the Faeroes.
The first northern European cruise of the season is a seven-day voyage departing from Copenhagen on May 30 and visiting Tallinn, St Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm. The same itinerary is repeated on June 13.
There are seven and nine-night cruises to the fjords; the June 6 departure from Copenhagen visits Stavanger, Alesund, Geiranger and Bergen, while the nine-night cruise from June 20 adds Molde and Olden. June 29’s 11-night cruise calls at Oslo, Kristiansand and Stavanger in Norway, and then on to Iceland and the Faroe Islands before arrival in Dover.
Magic sets out from the British port on July 10 and 22 for 12-night cruises to the Baltic, before heading to the Mediterranean for the remainder of the summer.
Fares start at £880 pp for seven-night cruises and £1,708 for 12-night cruises in northern Europe. In the Med, the starting fare for five-night cruises from Barcelona is £736, with seven-night voyages from £782.
