Adventures by Disney today announced itineraries for its first-ever river cruise, which is set to sail in Europe in the summer and winter of 2016.
Sailing with AmaWaterways, Adventures by Disney will offer four all-inclusive, family-themed sailings along the Danube River in the summer of 2016, each for eight days and seven nights. It will also offer one holiday-themed sailing in December 2016. Travelers will get to experience eight cities across Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary.
Summer 2016 highlights include:
- Tour of Mirabell Gardens and adventures through a salt mine (Austria)
- Nighttime Illuminations Cruise (Hungary)
- Horse show at Lazar Equestrian Park (Hungary)
- Medieval activities at Bratislava’s Devin Castle (Slovakia)
- Private marionette performance and strudel-making demo at Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace (Austria)
- Revisit scenes from The Sound of Music in Salzburg (Austria)
- Falconry show at Hohenwerfen Castle (Austria)
- Walk along the tree tops at a unique outdoor adventure center in Kopfing (Germany)
- Oktoberfest! (Germany)
Highlights from the December 2016 holiday-themed sailing include visits to the Christmas markets in Budapest and Vienna and a Vienna Boys Choir Christmas performance in the Hofburg Palace Chapel—along with the above highlights.
Guests looking for even more local culture can add also 3-day/2-night pre- or post-stay experience in Prague or Czech Republic.
Passengers will sail aboard the brand new, 170-passenger AmaViola, a river cruise ship that is being custom-built for Disney by AmaWaterways. From the layout of the rooms to kid-friendly activities (including family karaoke, movie nights, a magic show, cooking classes, and games), this vessel is going to be geared toward meeting the needs of the traveling family.
River cruising offers a great deal of time at port, arriving at dawn and departing late night. That means more time for families aboard to discover the city however they choose.
