5 Disney Cruise Line Vacation Experiences for Real-Life Princesses

There’s bon voyage, and then there’s the best voyage. For over 20 years now, Disney Cruise Line has reinvented the cruise vacation with flair, flourishes and fun. That includes taking Guests on adventures which are usually only seen in Disney movies. With the far-away locales, breathtaking views, epic elegance and musical merriment found on these vacations, you don’t have to be a real-life princess to enjoy them—but if the crown fits, you’ll fit right in! Check out these five destinations and special experiences to bring out your inner royalty.

Aim for a Brave Adventure

British Isles Cruise | Merida, Brave*

Edinburgh Castle is waiting… who will answer the call to explore it, and the historic village below it? The 7-night British Isles vacation takes Guests all around the United Kingdom: starting with Dover, England; on to Dublin and Northern Belfast, Ireland; and Greenock, a Scottish port, where the Straight As An Arrow adventure allows Guests to practice archery with experts worthy of Merida. With its exciting array of historical culture, natural and manmade splendor, and thriving arts both on-and off-board, this trip hits a bullseye for adventurers!

Mediterranean Cruises | Belle, Beauty and the Beast*

Sail like a beauty at some of the most picturesque and exciting European destinations! The 7-night Mediterranean Cruise begins in Barcelona and journeys to Italy and France. The Mediterranean ports offer easy access to must-see destinations like Rome and Pisa, but for fans of Beauty and the Beast, stepping into A Day in Provence will call Belle’s storybook tales to mind and have you singing, “Bonjour” to unforgettable sights.

Take the Ordinary and “Let It Go”

You can even play the part of royalty while mingling with your favorite Princesses at Royal Court Royal Tea or getting a regal makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
