    Tammy from MI Asked

    Hello, we sailed on the Fantasy this past June and LOVED IT !!!! looking for a new cruise for 2017. Wondering if anyone has ever taken one to Europe- and if so How was it, how long, and where is the best port to sail out of ?

    Welcome back, Tammy!

    I'm so glad to hear that you and your family had a fabulous time onboard the Disney Fantasy in June. If you haven't heard it yet -- yes, Disney Cruise vacations are kinda addicting ;-). My kids always ask for long itineraries... there's just way too many things to do on a Disney Cruise ship, and we all can't get enough of the pampering that we experience onboard. It's what keeps us coming back year after year.

    My family has sailed on the Mediterranean and the Northern Europe cruises. The ports of call are pretty amazing -- and we've grown to love Europe because of the superb experience that Disney Cruise Line has allowed us to experience during our previous visits. There are now a few more itineraries available to choose from and you can check them out on this link. Since you've been on a 7-night voyage, you're likely to look at a 9-night or better yet, a 12-night voyage.

    I have a bias towards the Mediterranean and Greek Isles Cruise, only because I've always been fascinated with the rich culture & history of those ports. On top of that, I adore Spanish food and loved our extra pre and post-night stays in Barcelona. It will be nice and warm when the Disney Magic sails there and you can pack light clothing -- and leave more room in your luggage for souvenirs from all the ports you'll be visiting. Traveling from the US into Barcelona offers a good selection of flights as well. The city is bustling and very much alive (day and night!). If you have Frozen fans in your family, you might want to check out the Norway itineraries - those are so magical.

    Do check out the different choices and let me know if you have any questions. They're all pretty awesome.

    Happy planning!
