    Hi, we are taking the Mediterranean cruise this June (kids 11, 9, 7 and 2) but I'll like to have advice about the shore excursions.. Which one do you recommend? Also, do you know about how to dress for dinners? Thank you!

    Welcome aboard, Ethel! I see that you'll be setting sail on the 9-night cruise out of Venice this summer! 

    I highly recommend any adventure that includes one of Disney's Exclusive Youth Activities. On these adventures, not only does the family get to enjoy the adventure together, but at one point, the kids get to experience an activity with Disney's Youth Counselors relating to that port of call, while the parents get to sneak away to explore the port on their own. 

    We loved the Mask Making, St. Mark's Square and Doge's Palace adventure in Venice, so that's tops of my list! You should have seen the beautiful creations the kids did on their masks in this little authentic Italian mask workshop! Also, check out the Ephesus and Sirince Village adventure with Youth Activity too! There are others, but any of the adventures that include the Youth Activities will let you see the port like only Disney can do. And with your young children, there isn't a better way to learn about the culture and history than to dive right in like this!

    On your 9-night sailing, you can expect expect seven Cruise Casual nights, one Formal night and one Semi-Formal night. You can read more attire specifics on the Onboard Dining Attire page of Disney Cruise Line's website.

    If you haven't already, check out my European Disney Cruise video series for more tips and sneak peeks at these gorgeous ports of call, Ethel! Have fun planning!
