    Hello, I want to plan a Disney cruise for my kids 7and 4 years this summer in July or august from Europe either France or Italy what’s the best cruise to choose ? And I want a cruise where diney characters are there

    Hi Mirna, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question! 

    My first ever Disney Cruise Line voyage was a Mediterranean Cruise a little over 10 years ago. My husband and I still talk about how fabulous our 11 night vacation was and how it set the bar for all of our vacations ever since.  In fact, we loved it so much that we’re planning to re-do a similar itinerary for my husband’s 50th birthday very soon. 

    First things first, one thing that I can guarantee that you’ll see on board a Disney Ship are plenty of Disney Characters, regardless of the itinerary you choose. Not only are there daily Character Greetings onboard (be sure to purchase a photography package to capture those memories!) but you’ll never know who you see roaming around the halls or on deck. 

    As for the departure port, European Cruises aboard the Disney Dream will be setting sail from Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy in June next year but those are Greek Isles Cruises, except for the 11-Night Cruise that ends in Barcelona. If those itineraries don’t interest you, there’s always the option of sailing out of Barcelona, Spain or even Southampton, England, if you’d like to try a Northern Europe Cruise in August. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you need any help making your choice or if you have any other planning questions once you’ve booked your vacation this summer!

    Have a Magical Day,
