This all-new voyage is scheduled to launch in 2024 with two sailings set for June 25 and July 2. These will be eight-day, seven-night round-trip sailings from Venice, Italy, and visiting a whopping seven ports in Croatia and Montenegro. Guests will be able to book their adventure on October 27. 

Families embarking on Adriatic Sea adventures will get to experience an expedition cruise on the PONANT ship Le Bougainville, which is a small, intimate ship. Why is a smaller vessel used? It allows guests to visit more remote ports that larger vessels cannot. 

Immersed in Culture

Guests will be immersed in the culture and stories of the Adriatic Coastline. They will get to experience carefully curated excursions daily, thanks to the travel experts at Disney. Plus, up to six Adventure Guides will lead activities both onboard and ashore. 

What can you expect onshore? Experiences will include: 

  • Stopping on the islands along the Adriatic Coast including Korcula and Pakleni 
  • Enjoying food, Croatian wine, architecture, and culture of the region 
  • Biking through vineyards and lavender fields of the UNESCO Stari Grad Plain

  • Uncovering the underground labyrinth at Slovenia’s Postojna Cave and the “dragons” that inhabit it
  • Learn about the methods of pressing olive oil, which is a time-honored Croatian tradition 

The magic will continue onboard with themed karaoke nights, trivia, talent shows, and more. Plus, there will be activities specifically for adults, such as cocktail workshops, and adventurers under 12 years old, like a “Pirates of the Adriatic” swim party.
