Disney Cruise Line has announced they will visit Northern Ireland for the first time next year.
Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Rapunzel and a host of other Disney stars – plus 3,650 passengers and crew – will be docking in Belfast Harbour in autumn 2019.
The luxury liner, whose horn plays the first seven notes of ‘When you Wish Upon a Star’, will dock in the city for one day in September as part of a seven-night British Isles cruise.
Guests on board the 11-deck ship – which is painted in Mickey Mouse-inspired colours – can enjoy live shows in the Walt Disney Theatre, open-air music and dance extravaganza deck parties, and, new this year, Rapunzel’s Royal Table, a restaurant inspired by the Disney hit animation.
For older guests there are a range of fine-dining restaurants and an adults-only lounge inspired by the famed piano bars of Hollywood’s heyday.
Last week Belfast Harbour and Visit Belfast announced that 2018 will be a record cruise season with over 200,000 passengers visiting the city.
