    Hi There, My family currently has the Best of Rome (CV25) excursion booked in July, and I would like to know if entry into St. Peter's Basilica is included. I would love to be able to experience the inside of the church.

    Hi Rachael,

    Welcome to planDisney! You are about to embark on a journey to one of my favorite destinations––Rome!

    I'm so glad you were able to book the Best of Rome (CV25) Port Adventure because it is hard to come by. One of the reasons it is a sought-after Port Adventure is the opportunities it affords a small group to visit special places within the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica. I confirmed with a Disney Cruise Line Cast Member that your tour is scheduled to enter the basilica. Now, there is always the possibility entrance to the basilica may be limited. If a religious service is being held during your visit, your group will more than likely be asked to enter individually to view the interior, but your ability to explore might be limited. The basilica can also close without notice due to other circumstances. I know your guide will do their best to allow your group time in this special place.

    Rachael, remember Guests, including children, must ensure their shoulders and knees remain covered. I always travel with a scarf or light sweater when visiting religious sites in case I or someone in my travel party needs to cover their shoulders. Also, this tour requires a lot of walking (up to 3.5 miles or more!) so wear comfortable shoes! You may need to check bags, including water bottles, at some locations, so plan accordingly. 

    The Gallery of Maps is one of my favorite spots in the Vatican Museums. Though capturing the grand scale of it is difficult, be sure to have your camera out (no flash!) to snap a picture to remind you of the breathtaking space.

    And speaking of favorite spots, you are going to love Disney Dream! She is my sentimental favorite ship. I have had many wonderful moments taking in the Broadway-caliber entertainment, enjoying the ambiance of Pink: Wine and Champagne Bar, and so much more, and I trust you will, too.

    Have the best time exploring the beautiful city of Rome and relaxing aboard Disney Dream, Rachael! Let me know if you have other questions.

    Wishing you many magical moments,

I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney.
