Mickey Mouse and 2,700 passengers of the Disney Magic cruise ship paid a visit to the Greek islands in June, since this year Disney’s program includes Greece among its destinations.
Amidst its nine-day cruise, on Saturday Disney Magic arrived at Katakolon Port, the gateway to Ancient Olympia and Pyrgos. Representatives of the Port Police and the Port Fund were there to welcome the ship with every honor.
Captain Robert Olmer, the staff and the Mickey Mouse entourage welcomed the passengers. During the simple ceremony, held in the special hall of Disney Magic, a present exchange took place between the President of the Katakolon Port Police Dimitris Apostolopoulos and the ship’s captain.
“Katakolon Port is today the leading player in a new type of cruise stop with educational goals. Ancient Olympia is a very attractive destination for schools and young children. The company will visit us once more this summer and we hope it will do the same next year,” stated Dimitris Apostolopoulos.
