Top 4 Accessible Cruises by Disney

By John Sage

barcelona-accessible-cruise-vacation-2Each summer, Disney sends one cruise ship to Europe to conduct several Mediterranean sailings.  The accessible Disney cruises start and finish in either Barcelona or Venice, and include 7 night itineraries, 9 night itineraries, and 12 night itineraries.  The 7 night Western Mediterranean cruise is the most common itinerary.

These wheelchair accessible Disney cruises sail on the Disney Magic cruise ship which was built in 1998 and holds 2400 passengers.  It has 17 wheelchair accessible cabins.

On the various itineraries, the Disney Magic visits 15 different ports but only offers accessible shore excursions in 6 of the ports.  Don’t worry about that though….Sage Traveling offers a selection of accessible walking and driving shore excursions in all 15 ports.

In the Mediterranean, there is only one Disney ship and limited sailings so be sure to contact us far in advance so we can reserve a spot for you.

Disney’s 7-Night Western Mediterranean Cruise on Disney Magic

This is the shortest (and most common) wheelchair accessible Disney cruise in the Mediterranean.  It’s an outstanding option for families so we put it on our list of Top 12 Accessible Mediterranean Cruises!

It visits the most popular ports in the Western Mediterranean including the Big 3 of Florence, Rome, and Naples. While most people have heard of plenty of can’t miss attractions in Rome and Florence, Naples presents numerous accessible shore excursion options.

You can take an accessible boat tour around the island of Capri or relax in the charming town of Sorrento perched on the cliffs above the Bay of Naples.  Or how about special permission to drive (not hike) to the crater rim of Mount Vesuvius and peer down at the ruins of Pompeii below?  Wheelchair accessible shore excursions are available in every port and you can easily extend your vacation a day or two with an accessible Barcelona hotel stay.
