Disney Cruise Line Celebrates 25th Anniversary

In July of 1998 the Disney Magic set off on a new adventure, her maiden voyage. It was a new kind of vacation where families could experience the magic of Disney at sea. However, for their 25th anniversary, Disney Cruise Line is offering a new kind of magic for families to experience. 

To celebrate this milestone, Disney Cruise Line is offering “Silver Anniversary at Sea” cruises across their fleet from May to September 2023. This celebration will feature special entertainment, merchandise, and experiences. 

“For two-and-a-half decades, Disney Cruise Line has built an incredible legacy of creating unforgettable vacation memories for families around the world,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Cruise Line. “Of course, at the heart of this anniversary celebration are our dedicated cast and crew members who continuously deliver legendary service and create magic at sea for our guests every day. Whether returning as a member of our Castaway Club or sailing with us for the first time, we are thrilled to invite guests of all ages to be a part of our very special anniversary festivities next summer.”

These summer sailing will offer magical limited-time surprises. 

  • Captains Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be decked out in new festive attire. The look will feature “shimmering, multi-toned fabric and swirling designs” intended to resemble the waves of the ocean. 
  • The celebratory sailings will introduce a signature song in a variety of ways. 
  • There will be new family entertainment and evening experiences. 
  • Passengers will be able to purchase exclusive merchandise from the Shimmering Seas Collection created just for this 25th Anniversary celebration.
  • Stay tuned for more magic to be announced. 

Disney Cruise Line also announced a new tier to their Castaway Club. Guests who have sailed on 25 Disney Cruises can now achieve Pearl status. More details to this tier will be announced early 2023. 

If you want to get in on the celebration, you will need to book on one of the special “Silver Anniversary at Sea” cruises. They are sailing on all five ships between May and September. Disney Cruise Line fans or even first time Disney cruisers will not want to miss out on these special, magical sailings.
