Here’s a closer look at the adventures in store…

Duomo di Milano and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele at Night, Italy

First-time visits to Fashionable Milan, Italy
We will visit Milan, Italy – a global capital of fashion and design – for the first time, as part of special sailings from Barcelona and Rome. The Disney Magic will stop at Genoa, Italy, which is the gateway to Milan and the picturesque locale of Portofino. The beautiful metropolis of Milan is perfect for shopping and home to top-name designer stores, boutiques, open-air markets and art galleries.

New sailings from Rome and Barcelona
In June 2018, we will sail between Barcelona and Rome, giving you the chance to experience the rich culture and inspiring history of these two cities as bookend experiences in a single cruise.

In Rome, you can explore the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican, and sample authentic local cuisine. Barcelona offers beautiful beaches, the market streets of Las Ramblas, the artistic architecture of Gaudi and the famed Sagrada Família church.

Blarney Castle, County Cork, Ireland

First-time visit to Cork, Ireland
We will take you to Cork, Ireland on our first-ever seven-night British Isles cruise. Cork is home to a vibrant culinary scene and a plethora of pubs, shops and cafes. You can connect with Ireland’s ancient past and visit historic sites like Blarney Castle. Don’t miss your chance to gain the gift of gab and kiss the famed Blarney Stone!

Additional ports visited on this sailing include Dublin, Ireland; Greenock, Scotland; and Liverpool, England. Throughout the summer, the Disney Magic’s grand tour of Europe continues with engagements in the Baltic, Norwegian fjords, British Isles and the Mediterranean.

In 2017, Disney Cruise Line guests set sail to Alaska’s Icy Strait Point on new itineraries departing from Vancouver, British Columbia. Pictured here, the Disney Wonder sails through Alaska’s Tracy Arm Fjord. (Kent Phillips, photographer)

Return to Alaska
If breathtaking natural vistas, magnificent glaciers and awe-inspiring wildlife are what you are seeking, the newly re-imagined Disney Wonder is returning to Alaska for the 2018 summer season. A variety of itineraries departing from Vancouver, Canada, include stops in Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point and Tracy Arm Fjord.

Families on Castaway Cay

More Opportunities to Visit Castaway Cay
When we say “double dip,” we’re not just talking about complimentary ice cream on the pool deck. In 2018, we are giving you a series of cruises that include two stops at our private island paradise in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay!

In June and July, the Disney Dream will sail four- and five-night cruises to the Bahamas, each with two stops at Castaway Cay, so you can have twice the fun in the sun and enjoy even more of the sparkling turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and swaying palm trees!

Bon voyage! Bookings open to the public on Feb. 23, 2017 and more details on 2018 itineraries can be found here.

Study: 54% of Online Adults Would Spend Tax Refunds on Travel

If you’re getting a tax refund this year, are you planning to use it responsibly or splurge instead?

travel-pic-2

According to a survey conducted by travel site Hipmunk, 54% of online adults in the United States said if they had to choose one thing, they would spend the money on travel. This contrasts with other surveys on tax refund spending, likely due to the wording of the survey question, which asked people what they would do if they “could” spend the money on “only one thing.”

The Hipmunk survey, which polled 4,000 people, also found that 25% of respondents would save their money, 17% would pay down debt and 4% would go shopping.

Asking what people plan to actually do with their refunds gets different results. In its annual survey of 1,000 investors, TD Ameritrade asked how respondents planned to spend the money, assuming they received a refund.

The-Worlds-Most-Romantic-Travel-Destinations-08

In that survey, 45% of respondents said they would save the money, while only 19% said they would spend their refund on discretionary items, like goods or travel. In 2013, TD Ameritrade’s survey found similar results, with 47% saying they would save their money.

While saving money may be more responsible, it isn’t very fun. This explains the discrepancy between what people want to do and what they feel obliged to do.

In Hipmunk’s survey, respondents were also asked where they would most like to travel. The most popular destinations were Italy, Hawaii and Australia, along with Paris, Greece and London following closely behind.

Based on the amount of the average tax refund — about $3,000 — Hipmunk suggested a few travel itineraries.
