My family recently went on a 7-night Disney Cruise through the Mediterranean Sea beginning and ending in Barcelona, Spain. Our family included my husband, myself, my 12-year-old son, and my 8-year-old son. We were also traveling with our friends and their two daughters ages 18 and 13.

Tips for Booking a Disney Cruise

I highly recommend using a travel agent when booking or planning to book a Disney Cruise. A good travel agent is there to take care of all of the leg work, like making reservations, booking excursions, etc. so you can just enjoy your vacation.

If you are looking for a great travel agent, I recommend my travel partners at Get Away Today. There customer service is top notch (I’ve been booking Disney vacations with them for over 20 years) and they are very knowledgable and helpful.

Cruise Flight Tips

If you’ve ever cruised before, you know how important it is to arrive at least one day before your cruise is scheduled to embark. You never know what can happen with flight delays due to mechanics and weather. It’s always a good idea to give yourself enough time to avoid missing your cruise.

You’ll also want to make sure that your passports are up to date, and are not expiring in the near future. Some countries will not allow you to enter if your passport is expiring in the next 6 months, so that is something to be aware of.

Having said that, we left on a Wednesday night, and arrived on Friday, the day before embarkation.

Traveling to Europe

The first leg of our flight was a red-eye flight from the west coast to JFK Airport in New York. We arrived at about 5:30 am and had a 12-hour layover before our flight to Barcelona.

I had done some research and discovered that JFK had a hotel right inside the airport that offered a day rate, similar to the Hyatt inside MCO in Orlando.

TWA Hotel

The TWA Hotel is located in the old TWA Terminal and offers hotel rooms, dining, and entertainment like a swimming pool and a roller skating rink! We were able to take an elevator right from baggage claim that took us to a large tunnel/walkway leading to the hotel.

Check-in was very quick and easy, so we got our keys and headed straight to the room to get some sleep! The only issue that I had with our room was that there was only one pillow on each queen size bed, which was definitely not going to work for the four of us.

TWA Hotel room with 2 Queen beds and only one pillow per bed.

We called the front desk to request more pillows, but after waiting 30 minutes, I was tired and put up the “Do Not Disturb” sign and used my jacket as a pillow.

After some much needed rest, we headed to our terminal to board our next flight to Barcelona.

Arrival Day

As I mentioned above, we arrived early in the morning, the day before embarkation. Our friends had arrived the day before, so we went to our hotel, Hotel Santa Marta, to check-in. Our room was not ready yet, so we headed up to visit our friends.

A Day in Barcelona

We spent the day exploring Barcelona aboard a hop on hop off bus tour that was really fun! Some of our favorite things to see were Camp Neou, a gigantic soccer stadium, and La Sagrada Familia, a church that has been under construction for over 100 years!

Disney Magic Embarkation Day

After getting a full 14 hours of sleep, thanks to jet lag from flying across the world, we were ready to head to the port and board the beautiful Disney Magic.

After completing our muster drill, we headed to Cabanas for lunch. I have really grown to love eating at Cabanas. The food is always top-notch.

I’ve noticed that whenever I go to Cabanas on the first day of a cruise, I always get a salad, thinking that I’m going to eat light during our vacation. That never happens!

Exploring the Magic

After getting settled in our room, my youngest son and I decided to explore the Disney Magic on our way to the kids club open house.

Oceaneer Lab

The Oceaneer Lab and Oceaneer Club were having an open house, so that was our next stop. During the open house, parents and other visitors can come inside the kid’s clubs and take a look around.

My 8-year-old prefers the Oceaneer Lab, where you can draw, play video games and do activities with the counselors. His favorite thing to do is to pretend to steer the different Disney ships.

Sail Away Party

After our tour, it was time for the Sail Away Party up on deck 9! The Sail-Away Party is so much fun because you get to dance with Cast Members and many of the Disney Characters make an appearance as well. It is a great way to celebrate embarkation day.

Dinner at Animator’s Palate

Not long after the Sail Away Party, it was time for dinner. Our dinner was scheduled for Animator’s Palate, an adorable restaurant on the Disney Magic (also on the Wonder, Fantasy, and Dream).

Mediterranean Disney Cruise Day 2 at Sea

Day 2 of our Disney Mediterranean Cruise was one of two days at sea, so we wanted to make good use of our time on the ship!

Disney Cruise Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Experience

Our first stop of the day was the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on Deck 10. For this experience, my son was able to choose to be a pirate or a knight. After selecting his outfit, one of the Fairy Godmothers got to work on his hair.

She spent a lot of time talking to him about magic and slaying dragons while she put little silver Mickey’s all over his hair. It was adorable that she called the hair gel, “Dragon Snot”.

Breakfast at Cabanas

After our visit to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, we took the kids to get breakfast at Cabanas. They really liked the Churro Mickey Waffles and the chocolate donuts!

Brunch at Palo

When the kids were finished with breakfast, they headed to the kid’s clubs and the adults had brunch at Palo, a specialty Italian restaurant on the Disney Magic, Wonder, Dream, and Fantasy.

Fun on the Disney Magic

At about 2:00 pm there was an announcement that we would be sailing between the islands of Corsica and Sardinia and we would be able to see them both at the same time, so we headed up to Deck 10 to check it out. Of course, we had to get an ice cream cone on the way. Make sure to watch the video from Day 2 to see the two islands!

Character Meet & Greet with Donald Duck

After seeing the islands, we stumbled upon Donald Duck! My son was excited to meet him and show off the silver Mickey’s in his hair. Watch the cute video of their interaction below.

Pinnochio’s Pizza

After meeting Donald, we grabbed a slice of pizza from Pinocchio’s Pizzeria and watched a movie on the Funnel Vision.

Next, we headed down to Deck 3 in a cool elevator to do some shopping in the gift shops.

Deck 4 Walking Track

One of our favorite things to do on Disney cruises is to walk around the running track on Deck 4. Be sure to check out my video of Day 2 to see a complete lap around the ship.

AquaDunk Water Slide

We had a few minutes before dinner, so we decided to take advantage of the short lines for the AquaDunk! The AquaDunk is a fun water slide where you begin with a countdown, then the floor falls out from beneath you before you twist and turn all the way down the slide.

Day 3 Naples, Italy

On Day 3 we were in Naples. We booked an excursion through Disney Cruise Line, called “Pompeii Half Day” excursion. We met our group in the Walt Disney Theater at the appointed time, then headed on a tour bus to Pompeii.

Pompeii was amazing and I highly recommend you take a tour if you ever visit Naples. Both the kids and adults had fun exploring the ancient ruins.

Our tour finished around 12:00. When we arrived back at the port, we decided to walk around Naples to get some pizza for lunch! The restaurant we chose was delicious, but we were surprised to learn that we were charged extra because we sat inside near the air conditioning.

We also had the most amazing gelato, and that was the best we had on our trip! If you ever find yourself in Naples, you don’t want to miss Il Gelato!

Day 4 Civitavecchia, Italy (Rome)

On Day 4, we woke up as we were pulling into port in Civitavecchia, Italy. After getting ready for the day, we went upstairs to have our usual breakfast at Cabanas buffet.

For our excursion to Rome, we went with a private tour guide. There were 8 of us, including our friends and the price ended up being less expensive than any of the Disney excursions.

Our tour guide was waiting for us when we got off the ship and we got in a very roomy van, for our ride to Rome.

Touring Ancient Rome

One thing I learned is that there is a wall that completely surrounds Ancient Rome. Although the city is much larger now, the wall still stands.

Touring Rome was absolutely amazing, but I wish we had more time to spend looking at different land marks and going inside the Vatican and the Colosseum, but there is only so much time in the day!

Here are a few places we stopped to visit:

Dinner at Animator’s Palate (Animation Night)

We made it back to the ship, just in time for dinner at Animator’s Palate. On longer cruises, guests are able to draw their own character before dinner, then it will come to life later, after dessert. This was our night to animate!

Day 5 Livorno, Italy (Florence & Pisa)

We woke up on Day 5 in Livorno, Italy which is the port that gets you to Florence and Pisa.

After having breakfast at Cabanas, we met with our Disney Excursion group in the Walt Disney Theater and boarded the bus that would take us first, to Florence.

Disney Excursion to Florence

Our tour began in Florence. The tour did not include going inside the Uffizzi museum, so we had planned to visit ourselves and meet up with the group later. Unfortunately, the tickets we purchased tickets online before the cruise to see the David, were the wrong time and were not able to change them.

Luckily, we were able to follow the map from our tour guide and were able to catch up to our group a few minutes later.

On Day 6, we woke up in Cannes France and just like the other days, we had breakfast at Cabanas before boarding a water taxi to take us to shore.

Excursion to Nice, France and Monaco

We booked a private tour with another family for the day, which ended up being cheaper than any of our Disney excursions. I liked touring this way because I felt like we had more time to spend exploring.

Nice, France

Our first stop was the flower market in Nice. There were many different flowers and food items for sale. We tried a French pastry with Swiss Chard, which I tried to like, but it just wasn’t for me. Then we stopped for gelato.

Our next stop was about a 30 minute drive away to the country of Monaco. My family was extra excited to visit because it is the home of the Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1 race. We actually missed the race by just a few days, so many of the stands were still up.
