A transatlantic voyage has begun on the Disney Dream.
Before the ship’s inaugural season in Europe, the 13-night cruise recently left Miami.
The eastbound itinerary links South Florida to Barcelona and includes visits to five destinations in Portugal and Spain, finishing a winter program in the Caribbean.
The Disney Dream will spend eight full days at sea, plus a stop in Lisbon, Cadiz, Málaga, and Cartagena before reaching its final destination.
The itinerary includes visiting Ponta Delgada, a Portuguese archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic.
As soon as the Disney Dream reaches Europe, its first summer season begins on May 20. The 2011-built ship will offer several four- to 11-night Mediterranean itineraries, replacing the Disney Magic that sailed there in recent years.
Visiting ports in the region, including Santorini, Piraeus, Naples, and Cannes, the Dream sails from major cruise homeports, such as Barcelona and Rome.
Itineraries to the British Islands, Norway, Iceland, the Baltic, and other destinations will be offered before the ship returns to the U.S. in late September.
While returning to North America, the Disney Dream flew westbound across the Atlantic.
After leaving Southampton on the 11-night voyage, the ship will sail on Bermuda, Canada, and New England itineraries.
Originally launched in 2011, the Disney Dream was built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.
The 2,500-guest vessel offered short cruises to the Bahamas year-round from Port Canaveral before being replaced by the Disney Wish.
