I was able to get alot of info on Tunisia, Malta, and Corsica form cruisecritic.com. Go to the ports of call/ Africa for Tunisia.

We are going to hire a taxi for a 1/2 day tour to the market, Bardo Museum and Sidi Bou Said. Prices for taxis are good at $25/hour, just confirm before getting in.

We are going to book a 1/2 day tour in Malta with Touring Malta. 210 E.

Corsica has a beach within walking distance of where we'll be docked. Also, they have a little train tour, 90 min, that takes you around town and along the coast.

We will be on the Sept 8,2010 Magic Med Cruise with our son & family.

Hope that helps !
Gina

travelbug24...hope to chat with you again about our cruise. It may be a long way off but planning is half the fun ! Also, with so many cruising before us, we'll have lots of trip reports to read and tips to gain from .

I started a roll-call on the cruise critic board, but no one has joined yet.

Happy planning !

Gina

I may have missed some if they didn't have the date or med in the title. There are some really good threads here with general information too.

We can make this a sticky once more have added to it.
Looks like you did a Disney Mediterranean Cruise in 2007. Do you recall what the range of prices were for the Shore Excursions? We are considering booking in April 2010 an 11 night Mediterranean Cruise. None of the shore excursion packages are available and Disney doesn't have any price ranges to give me. We are a family of 4 (2 kids 11 and 9) and I don't know what we might end up spending in added costs doing things in port and what to assume so looking for any experience you had.

Go to another cruise lines web site that does similar cruises and look at cost of their excursions to get a general idea. Royal Caribbean's web site is pretty easy to check out.

No, I have never been across the Atlantic but there are links to the DCL excursions that were offered in 2007 in the DIS DCL FAQ thread under EXCURSION REVIEWS. Some of the ports have been switched around for 2010 but if you look at both the TA & Med excursions you will be able to get most of what was offered back then and a good idea of what to expect this time.

FYI for those of you who are thinking about doing private excursions. Many of the private driver/guide companies offer a discounted rate if you book more than one port with them.

We are using Rome in Limo this summer for 3 of our ports (Pisa/Florence, Rome and Pompeii/Amalfi Coast) and they offered a discounted rate for booking all 3. Most of the other private groups do the same. Much less expensive for our party of 9 than the cruiseline excursions, we get to set our own itinerary and avoid the big bus experience.

Andrew's very useful list of links for the 2007 med cruise is fantastic!! But I thought that it might be time to update it a little so its a bit more relevant to the 2010 cruises and some of the 2011 cruise. In particular, I've got a few more links for Malta, Tunis and private transfers for Barcelona. We're on the first 2010 med cruise and our "research" might be handy for others down the line.

Here's the info.
Barcelona private transfers
http://www.barcelona-airport-transfers.com/
http://www.a2btransfers.com/

Malta
http://www.touringmalta.com/

La Spezia - specifically for cinque terre and for a guided walking tour. ie somone picks you up from port, train/ferry to the towns and taken back to ship. The first 2 are local companies based in 5T itself.
