Mickey is a mouse that can’t be satisfied. First, he needed theme parks in all corners of the globe: Florida, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo. Then he needed a cruise ship to combine Caribbean itineraries with stays at the mother of all amusement parks. Bored with Florida, he decided to try out some West Coast itineraries. And now he’s announced that in summer 2007, he’s going to emulate the popular kids and bring his cruise ship to the Mediterranean.
Disney Cruise Line will begin its first-ever Mediterranean cruising season on May 26. The Disney Magic will sail 10- and 11-night itineraries from Barcelona, stopping in Palermo (Sicily), Naples, Citavecchia (Rome), La Spezia (Florence and Pisa), Oblia (Sardinia), Italy; and Marseille and Villefranche, France. The difference between the two itineraries is an extra day at sea. To get to the Mediterranean, Disney will also offer two transatlantic sailings on May 12 and August 18.
If you want to be a Mediterranean Mouseketeer, bookings open on April 4 and the limited sailings are sure to sell quickly. Prices range from $2,399 to $3,499 based on double occupancy.
And if you can’t get enough of the Mouse, perhaps you can combine your Mediterranean sailing with a visit to Disneyland Paris.
