Adventures by Disney Announces First-Ever Dedicated Expedition Cruises


Guests will soon have the opportunity to travel to some of the world’s most sought-after destinations when they set sail on the all-new Adventures by Disney Expedition Cruises.

Voyages to Antarctica will begin in late 2021 and trips to the Galapagos Islands in 2022. Guests can experience these remote landscapes while enjoying a leisurely voyage with family-focused activities curated by the travel experts at Disney.

Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises 

With the introduction of the Antarctica Expedition Cruise, Adventures by Disney now offers family vacation experiences across all seven continents. Scheduled for 2021 and 2022, two 12-day, 11-night Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises will sail with PONANT, a leader in luxury polar expeditions.

Buenos Aires Escape

Travelers can add even more adventure to their Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruise with the Buenos Aires Escape. This four-day, three-night guided group experience will highlight must-see attractions as well as the hidden gems of Argentina’s capital.

Galapagos Islands Expedition Cruise

On the Adventures by Disney Galapagos Islands Expedition Cruise, families will island-hop from one extraordinary adventure to the next with five nine-day, eight-night sailings aboard the boutique expedition ship, the Galapagos Legend. Three routes are scheduled for this adventure.

On all Adventures by Disney Expedition Cruises, travelers can relax and play together aboard an intimate expedition ship as a team of Adventure Guides lead engaging programming for adults and Junior Adventurers alike. Special presentations by naturalists will further immerse travelers in the stories of the ecosystems around them, and on select sailings, Disney animal and photography experts will host conversations and hands-on workshops about wildlife, conservation, and travel photography.
