    Is the Transatlantic cruise out of Dover suitable for an 8 yr old and a 3 yr old? I don't want my dreamers to be bored.

    Hello Michelle,

    Thanks for sailing by!  The Transatlantic Sailings on the Disney Magic are wonderful options for families with young children in my opinion.  In fact, I think you get the best of both worlds, with several days of exciting sight seeing adventures at a number of wonderful ports of call, followed by a some relaxing days at sea as you travel back home "across the pond" from Europe.  In fact, I think this is an ideal options for taking young children to Europe, as a cruise filled exclusively with multiple days in a row of significant sight-seeing might be tiring for your littlest one.  Days at sea are wonderful on Disney Cruise Line, as you have plenty of time to explore and enjoy the copious entertainment options available for kids, families and adults alike.  I assure you, your family couldn't be bored if you tried.  The Disney Magic will have a host of activities and entertainment options to keep your clan busy from morning to night, including:  family-style game shows, Broadway-style entertainment, the pool deck and incredibly well-planned and secure programming at the youth clubs.  Your children will have a blast exploring Disney's Oceaneer Club and Lab, where they will interact with amazing crew members, well prepared to have them begging to stay for just a bit longer!  When my boys were your kids' ages, I had the hardest time getting them to leave the clubs, as they always wanted one more game, to spend a bit more time interacting with their favorite Disney Pals, or one more minute on the Magic Play Floor!  I have no doubt that if you chose to go on a Transatlantic Voyage, you will have a magical time!

    Bon voyage Michelle!
