    Hello!! My family is booked for the 7 night Mediterranean cruise out of Rome in June. This is our 3rd Disney cruise but our first in Europe... Will be any special theme nights? What excursions are the best for 5, 7, & 9 year olds?

    Hi Kristy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you sailed by with your question about your upcoming Mediterranean adventure with Captain Mickey!  As a previous Guest, you are already know what to expect from your adventure, but let me tell you – this one will be absolutely incredible!  My family sailed the Mediterranean a few years ago and we’ve made our way back to Europe each summer since to explore different European itineraries.

    While nightly entertainment and onboard activities are always subject to change, on your seven-night Mediterranean adventure you can expect to have a formal night, a semi-formal night, Pirate Night and four cruise casual nights.  Once you get onboard, the full schedule of events will be on your Personal Navigator or the Navigator app.  So, don’t forget your Pirate garb for this adventure…because you’ll need it to fend off any of those European pirates trying to board Captain Mickey’s ship!

    As you are finding, there is SO MUCH TO DO when you arrive at the amazing ports of call you will be visiting.  Since my boys are younger, we always find it best to find a private tour guide that can take you exactly where you want to go – and when you want to go!  We often find that sometimes we would get lost in the larger groups, and having our own guide and car allowed us some flexibility to see and do exactly what we wanted to!  We have done this for most of our European cruises and have done it through Port Adventures and through a private company on our own.  And, in Livorno we rented our own car and went exploring for the day to Lucca and Pisa…and we have some of the BEST memories from that day alone!

    Happy Sailing!
