Adventures by Disney, named the World’s Best Luxury Tour Operator by the 2009 World Travel Awards, and Disney Cruise Line announced today a special add-on option for a series of Mediterranean cruises in 2010 that will combine the best of both Disney vacations to create a one-of-a-kind family vacation experience at sea and on shore. Featuring Adventures by Disney’s expertise in guided travel across the world and the magic of a Disney Cruise Line voyage, guests participating in this new vacation offering can enjoy onboard activities and unique shore experiences that immerse each member of the family in the cultures and sights of this European region.
This limited-time product offering may be booked now for 10- and 11-night Disney Cruise Line Mediterranean vacations on the following departure dates: May 5, 15, 26; August 7, 18, 28 and September 8.
“This new product brings the best of both Adventures by Disney and Disney Cruise Line to families interested in the ultimate Mediterranean experience,” said Karl Holz, President of Disney Cruise Line & New Vacation Operations. “Visiting some of Europe’s most captivating destinations, the trip is designed to ensure that the guest’s only agenda is to soak up the culture, relax and have fun in the Mediterranean.”
A Mediterranean Adventure, On Land and By Sea
Adventures by Disney now brings the history and wonder of the world’s best destinations to families taking a Disney Cruise Line Mediterranean voyage. The first-time add-on package combines Adventures by Disney’s highly-trained Adventure Guides and incomparable itineraries designed specifically for families with the unparalleled Disney Cruise Line experience at sea.
Leveraging Adventures by Disney’s signature “Disney Difference,” the Adventure Guides oversee every aspect of the itinerary, serving as VIP host and expert tour guide for each traveler throughout the vacation. Families enjoy a hassle-free vacation, while the Adventure Guides handle all the details so parents and children can spend their time having the time of their lives in each port.
While at sea, guests may participate in many special shipboard activities and programs available only as part of the Adventures by Disney/Disney Cruise Line vacation package. As part of the Mediterranean trip, families are entitled to scheduled shore experiences and meals, a night of fine dining for adults, wine tasting at Palo aboard the Disney Magic, private receptions, and onboard and onshore photos.
While in ports of call, guests step into the region’s must-see cities including beautiful Barcelona and scenic Naples, are immersed in the ancient history and culture of Tunisia, Malta and Corsica, and even explore the French Riviera. Another Adventures by Disney point of difference is that itineraries are developed with the family in mind and boast an array of activities that immerse each member in the culture and history of every city, including thrills created especially for children.
Featuring Adventures by Disney’s signature service, guests take pleasure in daily outings that are nearly impossible to book on their own. For example, families who take the Mediterranean vacation embark on a powerboat ride to the Island of Gozo featuring its striking scenery and serene beaches, followed by an off-road tour to uncover the island’s hidden charms – one of the many once-in-a-lifetime opportunities guests experience. Other special touches include a tasty behind-the-scenes tour of a Florence gelateria, granted expedited entrance into the Vatican or travel via coach to various destinations. All said, families receive a well-rounded tour of the Mediterranean matched with specific off-the-beaten-path experiences just for them.
