I already gave you a glimpse at what we’re working on in Venice, and today we’re headed to exotic Turkey! For a true look at the creative process we use when developing adventures ashore, take a look at this video…
Here are more details about some of the Disney-exclusive Port Adventures in Turkey…
Ephesus and St. John Archaeological Quest – After a guided tour of St. John’s Basilica, guests will join an adventure-seeking “archeologist” on his quest to locate pieces of a popular symbol found throughout the area. Teams will see and decode clues to find a piece of an ancient symbol. When all teams finish solving their set of clues, the “archeologist” puts the pieces together, but realizes there’s one piece still missing! The quest shifts to Ephesus where all teams work together to find the final missing piece of the ancient tablet.
Ephesus Excavation Site with Archaeologist Encounter – At Ephesus, the most popular archeological site in the Kusadasi area, guests will get a guided tour and then be introduced to an archeologist who is currently working on the excavation (or a retired archeologist who once worked on the Ephesus site). The archeologist will share stories of past adventures and insights on what it takes to be a member of this illustrious profession. After a brief visit to an active dig site, guests will put their archeological skills to the test at an “artificial” dig site and unearth replicas of treasures found in Ephesus.
Ephesus Ruins & Sirince Village Featuring Exclusive Youth Activity – Families will explore Ephesus and then tour the narrow streets and markets in the countryside village of Sirince. They’ll end at the Artemis Restaurant, a local historic building where today a museum and restaurant operate. Here children will join Disney Cruise Line youth counselors and take part in a fun Turkish bracelet making activity, giving parents an opportunity to explore the market, sample some fruit wines or taste some local delicacies.
