Disney Magic Sailing to Europe Next Year

In May 2007, Disney Cruise Line's Disney Magic will embark on a series of European itineraries. The ship make a 14-day trans-Atlantic cruise from its normal home in Port Canaveral, FL, to Barcelona, Spain, followed by alternating 10- and 11-night cruises to eight ports in Italy and France for the rest of the summer (rates start at $2,399 double). Stops include Barcelona, Spain; Palermo, Olbia (Sardinia), Naples, Rome and Florence, Italy; and Marseilles and Villefranche (for Monte Carlo and Cannes), France. With this move overseas, Disney is looking to make a family vacation to Europe a one-stop shopping experience, said President Tom McAlpin at Tuesday's press conference. "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," McAlpin said. Magic will return to Port Canaveral in August 2007 with a trans-Atlantic cruise departing from Barcelona. In the meantime, sister ship Disney Wonder, will continue sailing out of Port Canaveral.
