Adventures by Disney offers amazing guided group family vacations. The itineraries are expertly planned from the moment you step off the plane at the destination airport. Their newest vacation offering is family river cruising. A lot of people I talk to have never even heard of Adventures by Disney, so I thought I would highlight some information on one of their newest vacations, the Danube River Cruise.

Why River Cruise with Disney?

Disney is well-known for their magical theme parks and cruise line, but why would you want to river cruise with Disney? Because Disney is known the world over for their impeccable service and attention to detail. Adventures by Disney will take care of all the details so you don’t have to plan a thing.

The Danube River Cruise sailings take place on the AmaViola, the newest, most distinguished ship of AmaWaterways fleet, a leader in luxury river cruising. You will delight in your comfortable deluxe stateroom, locally sourced cuisine and wine and  incredible views. State-of the-art amenities including internet access, in-room entertainment and a heated swimming pool.

Danube River Cruise Itinerary

The Danube River Cruise is an 8-day/7-night, all-inclusive adventure to 8 destinations in 4 countries—Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Highlights of the itinerary include:

  • Wachau Valley Bike Excursion
    Take a bike ride from Melk to Krems (via the storybook village of Durnstein) and enjoy the pastoral landscape dotted with rolling Wachau Valley vineyards.
  • Austria: Explore Salzburg
    Enjoy a day in the majestic city of Salzburg with a local expert. Visit the beautiful Mirabell Gardens and other sights made famous from the movie The Sound of Music.

    This famous ranch founded by the Lazar Brothers is full of fun activities for the whole family. Take a carriage ride, see the famous “csikósok”—Hungarian cowboys, enjoy an entertaining horse show and petting zoo.

    Perched atop a cliff these castle ruins now serve as a museum, don’t miss the famous Maiden Tower, a Rapunzel-like prison tower. Enjoy archery and other medieval activities, plus candle making with real beeswax—and take your creation home with you.
