The Royal Ball at Catherine's Palace
As you probably know later this spring the Disney Magic is heading to Europe for five months. From April to September we’ll be offering special cruises to the Mediterranean and the Baltic.

As we set sail to these exciting ports of call we have developed a series of very cool Port Adventures featuring distinctly Disney touches, beloved characters and rich storytelling to help bring local culture and customs to life.

One of the highlights of our Baltic cruises is The Royal Ball. In St. Petersburg, Russia, Catherine Palace becomes the stage for a grand gala hosted by princesses such as Cinderella, Snow White and Belle. The princesses and their princes will arrive by horse-drawn carriages and entertain guests in the gilded Grand Ballroom. Live musicians and royal courtiers resplendent in period costumes and powdered wigs add to the ambiance and lead guests in fun, song and dance.

During our Mediterranean cruises guests can book a Port Adventure featuring an exclusive character experience in Florence. This experience includes a walking tour of beautiful Florence, including visits to famous landmarks and historical locales. The tour caps with a visit to a beautiful Italian Palazzo (pictured) where you’ll enjoy lunch in the company of Disney Friends.
