Adventures by Disney just announced an all-new expedition cruise experience to the northernmost region of the earth: the Arctic! Plus, families will also have opportunities to explore Antarctica and the Galapagos Islands with additional sailings to both destinations in 2023.

Take a look below for the official descriptions from Adventures by Disney:

New Family Expedition Cruises to the Arctic

Sailing on a chartered adventure with PONANT, a leader in luxury polar expeditions, this adventure is scheduled for two departures in June and July 2023. Families will discover the distinctive landscapes and unique wildlife of this region during special 10-day, nine-night itineraries.

On board the Le Boreal, guests will travel to the Norwegian Arctic. From exploring in Longyearbyen, the largest town of Norway’s Svalbard archipelago and the northernmost settlement on the planet with a permanent population of more than 1,000, to viewing the breathtaking glaciers of this region’s most beautiful fjord, Kongsfjorden, adventurers will embark on daily boat excursions where they may spot unique wildlife including polar bears, reindeer, arctic foxes, and walruses.

Plus, as an extra sprinkle of pixie dust, former Imagineer Joe Rohde will join travelers on the July itinerary to delight them with amazing tales from his impressive Disney career and share his passion for nature and conservation. He’ll also host interactive sketching sessions for guests with all levels of artistic experience.

Family Expedition Cruises to Antarctica

Adventures by Disney has added three new departures for the 12-day, 11-night Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises which depart in December 2022 and early 2023.

This spectacular adventure will take travelers to the southernmost tip of Argentine Patagonia to visit the resort town of Ushuaia before boarding a vessel to travel through the Drake Passage. Guests will be immersed in the awe-inspiring landscapes of Antarctica during daily boat excursions and hikes along the continent’s shorelines. And there will be plenty of opportunities to catch glimpses of wildlife like whales, seabirds, penguins, and seals in their natural habitats.

Guests booked on an Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises can learn how to dance the Tango and channel their inner cowboy while also exploring the cosmopolitan culture of Argentina’s capital by adding the four-day, three-night Buenos Aires Escape to their adventure.

Family Expedition Cruises in the Galápagos Islands

On board the Galápagos Legend, travelers will depart for nine-day, eight-night itineraries that explore the diverse islands and ecosystems of the Galápagos Islands. With five new sailings that are led by naturalists, adventurers will discover the archipelago’s spectacular vistas and remarkable diversity of plant and animal species. Trip highlights include snorkeling in turquoise waters inhabited by sea lions, reef fish and sea turtles; hiking across the islands’ diverse terrain; and paddling in transparent kayaks along sheltered coves.
