Adventures by Disney provides culturally immersive, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that prove all vacations are not created equal. On this Arctic expedition, which will take place on July 10-19, 2023, Rhode “will join the Adventures by Disney Arctic Expedition Cruise and share insights into his incredible 40-year career.”

During the cruise, travelers will be able to hear Rhode speak about his career, including how travel “played a significant role in his creative process designing Disney properties worldwide.”

Here are some more details about the Arctic cruise from Adventures by Disney:

Nature and Wildlife are the Stars on the Adventures by Disney Arctic Sailings

Adventures by Disney offers seasonal sailings to the Arctic, and on each trip, nature takes center stage. This awe-inspiring adventure includes gliding through the Svalbard archipelago glaciers and fjords, visiting Longyearbyen, the northernmost settlement in the world, admiring the breathtaking landscape of icebergs, ice floes, and the Arctic tundra, hiking on land or taking small boat excursions through the glacial waters, and of course, spotting wildlife in their natural habitat.

The Arctic is home to polar bears, whales, walruses, reindeer, puffins, and more. Daily activities are often “in the moment” and determined by the weather — no two adventures are the same.

Adventures Guides, Expedition Leaders, and Naturalists

The itinerary begins in Oslo where guests will be met by our amazing Adventure Guides who attend to every detail during this trip (we think they are legendary, too!). The following day, guests will fly to Svalbard and board a luxurious PONANT expedition cruise ship, their home for the next seven days.

Once onboard, they will meet the Expedition Leaders and naturalists who will guide guests on daily excursions to encounter and become immersed in nature all around. This trip is all about discovering the beauty of the Arctic and learning about the natural world with your family and friends.

During his sessions, Joe will share stories from his illustrious career, including his passion for conservation and nature. In fact, he was instrumental in the creation of the Disney Conservation Fund, which supports organizations worldwide working to save wildlife and inspire positive change.
