Well, if you've got great advice for what to do in port on a Mediterranean cruise, Cruise Critic's Editor in Chief Carolyn Spencer Brown wants to hear it!
Carolyn's heading to the Western Mediterranean onboard Disney Magic, and will be reporting on her experiences in a daily live video blog beginning April 26. The 11-night cruise visits eight ports -- and she wants your suggestions about the best way to spend her time onshore.
Here's how to get involved: Send Carolyn a virtual postcard (i.e. post on the message boards) by Monday, April 19, with your favorite places to go and things to do in one or more -- or all! -- of the following ports:
Civitavecchia, Italy (for Rome)
La Spezia, Italy (for Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, etc.)
Villefranche, France (for Monaco, French Riviera)
To keep things simple, please tailor your suggestions to the following three topics (suggestions can be, but do not need to be, kid-friendly):
Best must-see attraction
Favorite hidden gem or off-the-beaten-path attraction
Best place for an authentic local lunch
Carolyn will choose her favorite tips to incorporate into her own itinerary and will talk about her experiences in these ports in her daily video blog. So don't forget to check the Cruise Critic homepage come April 26 to hear all about Carolyn's travels when Disney Cruise Line returns to Europe. Magic's crossing the Atlantic at this very moment....
