Filed in: Itineraries, Port Adventures

CELEBRATION, Fla. – Disney Cruise Line invites families to explore the culturally rich and exotic locales of the Mediterranean with one-of-a-kind Port Adventures during its 2015 European sailings.

In August 2015, the Disney Magic returns to the Mediterranean, treating guests to the best of Europe with favorite ports of call. Guests will explore richly diverse destinations that showcase iconic locations, enchanting cultures, tantalizing cuisine and unrivaled experiences.

Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures are designed to entertain and inspire both children and adults—in true Disney fashion—many with added touches such as more scheduled breaks, complimentary snacks and beverages and fun port activity sheets for kids. For an extra dash of pixie dust, guests can choose an excursion from Disney Cruise Line’s Signature Collection, which offers families authentic cultural experiences and distinctly Disney storytelling.

In Rome, families embark together on a guided tour of the Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica. Then, children join youth counselors from the Disney Magic for an exclusive puppet show while parents have free time to explore the city on their own. An adults-only excursion takes guests to famous sites like the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, the Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica for an exclusive tour of the best of Rome.

A delicious adventure awaits guests in Tuscany from the picturesque province of La Spezia. Two Signature Collection Port Adventures take guests through the quintessential countryside to a welcoming estate, where they will don their aprons and learn the secrets of fine Tuscan cuisine. A trip to the wine cellars, a freshly-cooked meal and some free time to relax make this a truly memorable experience for adults and kids alike.

From Naples, guests travel to the seaside town of Sorrento, where Disney Cruise Line youth counselors engage children in a fun-filled pizza making lesson at a local restaurant. Meanwhile, adults enjoy a guided tour of the historical center or spend their time strolling the charming flower-lined streets at their leisure. A scenic drive through the quaint towns of the Amalfi Coast returns guests to their home away from home—the Disney Magic.

Beginning May 30, the Disney Magic returns to Europe with brand-new itineraries in Northern Europe, including first-ever cruises to the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland, before sailing five- and seven-night cruises to the Mediterranean on Aug. 10, 15, 22 and 29 departing from Barcelona, Spain.
