In June 2013, we sailed on back-to-back Disney Cruises in the Mediterranean. Highlights included ports with access to Florence, Rome, Venice, Athens, Ephesus, Dubrovnik, Naples, Malta, Mykonos, Villefranche, and Barcelona. We began this blog in the planning stages, posted during the trip itself, and are continuing to share not only our experiences, but information we learned along the way. We hope our blog will be useful to others planning visits to the Mediterranean whether by land or by sea.

We have sailed with several cruise lines over the years, but one of the things we enjoy about Disney Cruise Line over others is the onboard movie theater. While you might wonder why anyone would spend their time on a cruise watching movies they could see at home, sometimes there is nothing we would rather do. Because we are repeat cruisers on DCL, we have seen most of the stage production shows in the Walt Disney Theater, most more than once, so an evening movie fills the time. We are usually so busy at home, especially in the weeks leading up to vacation, that we don’t get to the theater to see a film, so we look forward to having the time to do so while on vacation.
For our cruises, we are excited about two movies that will be released while onboard – and while we may not see the first showing, we already have plans to see them.
The first one, Monsters University, releases on Friday, June 21st.
The second one, The Lone Ranger, stars Johnny Depp as Tonto and premiers (or premEARs, as they like to say on DCL)on Wednesday, July 3rd.
In addition to the premiers, we will check the schedule for other recently released films that we would like to see when we aren’t seeing the sea.
