For many families, traveling is about more than just seeing different destinations. It’s a way to learn about other cultures and bring history life in a unique way. Disney shares this viewpoint, which is why we provide so many culturally rich opportunities on our cruises in Europe.

If you want to know more about how you can immerse your family in the culture of Europe when sailing the Mediterranean with us this summer, take a look at our next “Mom’s Take” video with Marcy from the Disney Parks Moms Panel. She points out different teaching tools you can use while traveling with your kids and even highlights a few of the specific Port Adventures that incorporate learning in a fun way.
