Disney Cruise Line Sneak Peek: Port Adventures in Venice

posted on September 27th, 2012 by Arnaldo Zanonato, Manager, Port Adventures Research & Development

Disney Cruise fans, I’ve got some really exciting stuff to share with you today! I just got back from a trip to Europe. The purpose? To plan Port Adventures for the Disney Cruise Line summer Mediterranean cruise season! (Yes, I love my job!)

New Port Adventures in Venice Coming Soon for Disney Cruise Line Guests

At each destination, we’re partnering with tour operators to create one-of-a-kind excursions geared towards families and exclusive to Disney Cruise Line. For example, Venice has a wealth of family experiences – but we’re taking them to a whole new level! In this video, you’ll see some of the adventures we’re developing in Venice – while they’re still in the “work-in-progress” state.

The one I’m most excited about is the Disney-exclusive Evening Doge’s Palace Tour & Character Experience where families will be treated to two very rare treats – a private, after-hours tour of Doge’s Palace and a royal reception with Disney princesses on the Palace’s loggia (balcony overlooking St. Mark’s Square).

Another Disney-exclusive excursion I’m sure will be an instant favorite is our Gondolier For A Day Experience. There is no greater symbol of the city of Venice than that of a gondolier navigating his gondola down the city’s world-famous canals. During this Port Adventure, guests 16 and older will be able to try their hand at piloting a gondola on the city’s lagoon!

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek at Port Adventures in Venice. Stay tuned for my next post about the family-fun adventures we’re planning in Turkey!

I’m on the June 27th cruise, having Venice as a port was the thing that sold me on this cruise. I love Venice!

Will this be an Adventure by Disney excursion?
