Pompeii, Rome, Florence, the French Riviera...all places Americans hear about from the time they begin hearing about places. These geographic locations are among the icons of our planet. They are not just simply tourist locations, but rather historical markers, cultural meccas and places of dreams and imagination. Now, what would you say if someone told you they could arrange for you to see all these wondrous spots within a single week, and all you had to do was unpack once? Well, that is exactly what DCL can arrange for you with their 7 Night Western Mediterranean cruise.
Following up our first ever cruise last year aboard the Disney Wonder in Alaska, my wife and I departed the ever so cool city of Barcelona aboard the Wonder's sister ship, Magic. Saturday, late afternoon, and the Magic eased its way out into the Mediterranean Sea, the bluest water I've seen in my life. Sailing due east across the sea we soon lost sight of the land behind us as the sun set. Disney did not disappoint. The food, the service, the entertainment...all was first rate.
The shore excursions, while amazing, were strenuous, especially during the summer when the heat and humidity were high. I imagine there are weather related reasons Disney repositions its ships to the Caribbean in the fall and winter rather than continue to tour other parts of the world when the temperatures are milder, but it would be nice to be able to take this cruise when it isn't so hot in Italy.
I am a big Disney Cruise Line fan and advocate. If you are contemplating a Med cruise, you should seriously consider the Disney experience.
