    Hi, My husband and I are newbies to cruising all together and cannot wait! We are departing July 6, 2016 from Copenhagen, Denmark on Magic. Can you suggest some excursions for us to take part in and some onboard activities? Thank you

    Welcome aboard, Kristy!

    How exciting to hear that you'll be exploring Europe next year with your husband. Cruising onboard the Disney Magic will be the best way to enjoy the wonderful sights of Europe. The ports that you'll be visiting are rich in culture and it is amazing how each day will be just full of lovely surprises for you and your family. 

    My family sailed Northern Europe around the same time of the year - it was warm and the itinerary is quite action packed. I loved having to only unpack once... but get to visit all the amazing locations day after day. My husband and I enjoyed the daily shipboard activities that introduces guests to the region they are visiting. Activities will vary for each sailing, but don't forget the adult-only beverage tastings offered... it's a great way to make friends and learn a little about the country and what they enjoy to drink, may it be vodka, rum or specialty wines and spirits. Guest Services will have a list of activities on embarkation day - make sure to visit early so you can sign up. They limit the guests who can attend and there is a nominal fee to participate.

    There are numerous Port Adventures available, depending on your interests. My family's interests were primarily sight seeing, since it was a first-time visit for us. We enjoyed seeing Catherine's Palace and the Hermitage Museum. If you are traveling with a Princess, there is a Cinderella themed ball that they hold in the evenings there. There are City Highlight tours like the one in Finland, those were wonderful excursions! You can play around with the site for more port adventure choices based on your interests.

    Hope this helps, Kristy!
