It looks tike Disney Cruise Line will be entering the European Market by offering cruises that will be visiting the Mediterranean Sea and visiting France, Italy, and Spain in the summer of 2007. This may be a great opportunity for those with small children to visit the Mediterranean ports.
The Disney Magic will offer eight alternating 10-night and 11-night Mediterranean cruises, departing from Barcelona, Spain, and stopping in eight European cities.
Traveling through Europe can be daunting, especially with small children, company President Tom McAlpin said. A Disney cruise takes the guesswork out of what cities to hit, where to eat and what shows to see, he said.
“The cruise takes care of all of that and people trust Disney. At the end of the day you know you’re coming back to the ship and having five-star dining, great entertainment and you know your kids are going to have a good time,” he said.
Disney is considering expanding beyond its two ships, which have been successful since they began operating Caribbean voyages in 1998. But “it’s not the right time now,” McAlpin said. via MSNBC.com.
