New Expedition Cruises Announced by Adventures by Disney

Adventures by Disney has announced a new experience for families to visit Antarctica and the Galapagos Islands. Starting in late 2021, Adventures by Disney Expedition Cruises will take adventurers to Antarctica and then to the Galapagos Islands in 2022.

These adventures will allow guests to sail aboard specialized ships that are intimate and built to access remote locations. Because of this, guests will get to discover some of the world’s most pristine and beautiful locations, see incredible wildlife, and go on a variety of different types of excursions. The focal point of all these experiences will be a focus on nature. There will be expert naturalists and Adventure Guides to help bring the stories of the regions to life both on land and sea. Families will connect on these adventures with the natural wonders around them.

With the new Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises, Adventures by Disney will now offer vacation experiences on all seven continents around the globe. Adventures by Disney will be sailing with PONANT, a leader in luxury polar expeditions. There will be two 12-day, 11-night Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises that will be in 2021 and 2012.

Here is a description of the Antarctica and Patagonia Expedition Cruises:

Following an overnight stay in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the adventure begins at the southernmost tip of Argentine Patagonia, where guests will visit the resort town of Ushuaia, take a scenic train ride and explore the Tierra del Fuego National Park, travel by catamaran through the Beagle Channel and visit the historical settlement, Estancia Harberton. After navigating through the Drake Passage, the journey continues in the awe-inspiring landscapes of Antarctica, where each day brings a new adventure. Guests will embark on daily boat excursions and hike along the continent’s shorelines, catching glimpses of native wildlife like seabirds, penguins and seals in their natural habitat. With offshore activities defined by nature, every wildlife viewing will be unique to the sailing.

For those who are interested in Adventures by Disney Expedition Cruises, more details can be found on the Expedition Cruising with Disney page of AdventuresByDisney.com. Bookings will become available to the public starting on January 22, 2021.

For those who want more than just to visit Antarctica, there is also a pre-cruise vacation in Buenos Aires. This Buenos Aires Escape is a four-day, three-night guided group experience that gives guests the chance to see the highlights of Argentina’s capital. While there, guests will get to experience a traditional horseback ride while visiting a local estancia. They will also get to be immersed in the cosmopolitan culture of the “Paris of South America” as they explore the streets of Buenos Aires.
