We finally have some evidence of the Disney Magic sailing to Europe in 2015 based on a few scheduled arrivals that were spotted by one of our readers on the Civitavecchia port calendar. The Magic is listed on Civitavecchia’s port calendar 4 times between August 13 and September 1, 2015. The calendar, if accurate, may suggest that the Magic would sail a handful of Mediterranean cruises including three 7-night itineraries. The last three arrival dates appear to coincide with a sailing pattern at the end of the 2014 European cruise season where the Disney Magic is currently scheduled to sail three 7-night Mediterranean before embarking on a Westbound Transatlantic crossing.
The lack of calls on the Civitavecchia calendar for the Disney Magic in June and July suggest she may be splitting her time in Europe. Assuming the Disney Magic will sail an Eastbound Transatlantic in mid-May, this could add credence to the Baltic rumors. In 2010, the Magic’s European season included a series of 12-night Northern European Capitals cruises in June and July with a repositioning cruise to Barcelona to finish her summer season in the Mediterranean.
UPDATE: Disney Magic Removed from Port Calendar
All references to the Disney Magic have been removed from the Civitavecchia port calendar for the Summer of 2015. However, identical calls remain on the port calendar under the ship name TO BE DETERMINATED. A similar tactic has been used by other port authorities to mask the names of the Disney Cruise Line ships until itineraries are announced while still allowing the port to maintain a public schedule.
Update: It appears that extended port calendars for Rome have been removed from the website. If you search these dates past the current month there will be zero results returned.
