Adventures By Disney Now Wants To Take You To The Arctic
According to the company, Disney will embark on new expedition cruises to the Arctic in 2023 on board the luxurious Le Boreal. The adventure will begin in Oslo, Norway, and along with a team of naturalists and expert Adventure Guides, you will get to see the magnificent landscapes and unique wildlife of the Arctic. 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.
The 10-day, nine-night sail takes guests to the remote Svalbard Archipelago, known for its rugged terrain of glaciers, frozen tundra and polar bears. Guests will also experience Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost settlement, as well as Oslo, Norway’s lively capital city.
Here’s what you can expect according to a latest press release:
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.
Bookings for 2023 Adventures by Disney Expedition Cruise itineraries open to the public on Nov. 12, 2021.
