Disney Cruise Line announced this morning that its Disney Magic ship will sail the Mediterranean in summer 2007.

The ship, which spent last summer on the West Coast, will make stops in European locales including Barcelona, the French Riviera and Naples, Italy.

Tom McAlpin, president of the Cruise Line, said the locations were some of the top ones mentioned by people surveyed by Disney. He said the itineraries, which include 10- and 11-night cruises out of Barcelona, make it possible for families to take a European vacation without the hassle.

The Magic, whose homeport is Brevard county's Port Canaveral, will sail 14-night east and west transatlantic crossings to reposition the ship before and after its Mediterranean cruises.
