Wow, great info bats! We're in Barcelona a couple of extra days. Anyone have some "must see" recommendations? Fun shopping areas?

My sister and I just booked this cruise! We are so excited. We have not been on a Mediterranean cruise before... or to Europe at all for that matter. We can't wait!

There's no such thing in this world as 'fun' shopping!! I'm allergic to shopping of any kind, so I'm no use helping with that question!!

Welcome aboard!! The Med cruise last year was wonderful, I'm sure it will be this year too!

Are you planning on doing a little extra in Europe before or after the cruise?

Well we wont be on this cruise now. Airfare was too much. Splurging on the Fantasy at Thanksgiving and the Transatlantic in 2014.

Yall have fun!

I must confess that our airfare did cost more than the cruise. I can certainly understand how it would cause people to rethink Med cruising.

Joining List

We booked last August (during the New England Coast cruise). It is myself, my friend and her 16 year old daughter. This will be our 8th Disney cruise and our 2nd Med cruise with Disney (last time was 2007). We will be flying out a week before the cruise to stay in Italy and then fly to Barcelona to catch the cruise. We really loved the Med cruise in 2007 and looking forward to both repeating some experiences (cinque terre) and trying some new places.

Welcome! My DH and I are also sailing with our 16 year old daughter - cruise #9 for us! She'll be excited to hear about someone her age in our group!

We've never been to the Med so are spending a few days ahead of the cruise in Barcelona.

Shame you're not cruising the Med, but understand about the flight prices ... Now you know how we Brits feel each time we cruise from Port Canaveral!!!

We'll see you on the WBTA in 2014 though as we're on that one too!!

Myself and my DM are coming on this cruise. Along with my aunt and uncle, with their 3 children DD16, DD13 and DS9. This will be our second Med cruise with DCL, and my mom's 6th Disney cruise overall, not including all the cruises I have done whilst working on the Dream.

We're super excited about our up coming cruise. Can't wait to be sailing away with you all!!!

Just paid in full, so not turning back now! since we're spending a couple of days pre-cruise in Barcelona we bought Rick Stevee's Barcelona tour guide today. Getting really excited!

Are people still interested in doing the Fish Exchange? Been thinking of FE gifts!

Shore Excursions

Has anyone started planning their shore excursions? Would love to hear people's ideas or experiences from previous cruises.

We have a Segway tour of Barcelona booked as well as private tours for Pisa/Florence, Pompeii/Sorrento and Rome. I used Rick Steve's guides to help find these excursions. I have nothing planned for Villefranche... A tragedy for my OCD-planning-obsessed self! We're not thrilled by DCL's offerings (or prices), so if you guys have any ideas, I'd love to hear them!
