Marilyn JonesAdventures by Disney and AmaWaterways are combining their travel expertise to create family focused vacations with first-ever river cruising itineraries. Five sailings along the Danube River in the summer of 2016, as well as two holiday-themed sailings in December 2016, will include eight destinations in four countries – Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary.

Features will include specially designed ships, ship-specific Adventures by Disney Adventure Guides, and experiences for “an unmatched experience that is immersive, all-inclusive and hassle-free.”

In Austria, for example, excursions will includes revisiting scenes from the movie “The Sound of Music,” exploring Devin Castle, and taking a traditional Austrian folk dancing lesson. Because river cruises offer more port time in each city, there’s more time for travelers to discover the destination through guided activities as well as individual exploration.

The special holiday-themed sailings will include visits to the Christmas markets in Budapest and Vienna, and a Vienna Boys Choir Christmas performance

“Adventures by Disney is always looking for new ways to deliver extraordinary vacation experiences,” says Ken Potrock, senior vice president of Adventures by Disney. “Recognizing the untapped potential and broadening appeal of the river cruising market, we worked with AmaWaterways for a personalized experience unlike anything we’ve presented before.”
