    Hi, we are planning a cruise on the Disney Magic from Dover to Barcelona this July. Our kids are older (16 and 18) and I was hoping you could recommend port adventures and onboard activities that are especially suited for older kids. Thank you!

    Ahoy, Eileen!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You've planned an unforgettable summer vacation for you and your family aboard the Disney Magic! Reading your question had me reminiscing back to when my husband and I celebrated our honeymoon aboard a transatlantic cruise on the Disney Magic! You are going to see so many beautiful ports of call during your 7-Night Western European Cruise from Dover to Barcelona. This is going to be the vacation of a lifetime for your family!

    One of the Port Adventures that I'm excited to recommend is visiting Disneyland Paris while docked at Le Havre, France! If your family members are Disney fanatics like mine, how incredible would it be to visit a Disney Resort outside of the U.S.?! Do your kids like adventure? The 4x4 Expedition in Lisbon, Portugal will give your family the thrill of "off-road" driving while seeing the beautiful countryside. I think booking Port Adventures is the best way to explore the culture and beauty of each port of call you visit!

    Your kids will have so many activities to choose from while onboard! Your 16-year old will be able to enjoy the teen-exclusive club, Vibe. Your 18-year old can visit any of the adult-only areas onboard including the Quiet Cove Pool and Senses Spa & Salon. I also suggest your kids catch one of the many movies playing in the Buena Vista Theatre or tying their swimsuits extra tight and plunging down the AquaDunk!

    Eileen, I hope I was able to give you some suggestions on Port Adventures and activities for your adventure-seeking family! Please sail back with any future questions!
