Adventures by Disney Expands European River Cruises for 2020

Adventures by Disney recently announced that it would be expanding the offerings for its European river cruise vacations. Details have just been announced for the new sailings and what guests can expect from the expansion. The additions include three new Short Escape itineraries in Paris, Budapest, and Amsterdam that can be added to cruises or taken as stand-alone trips. There is also a brand new vacation on the Rhone River in southern France.

The river cruises are offered with luxury river cruise line AmaWaterways and will expand Adventures by Disney’s offerings to a record-breaking 27 departures. The all-inclusive vacations have been lauded for allowing guests to explore Europe in an immersive and fun way with the Disney level of service. The company has also increased their number of adult-exclusive departures for 2020.

New Rhone River Sailings Through Southern France

This eight-day, seven-night sailing on the Rhone River will include a trip through southern France and the world-renowned region of Provence. Trip highlights include amazing sightseeing by bike, kayaking under the Roman aqueducts, and a tour by train and rail bike. Interactive culinary experiences will be available featuring cheese tasting and jam making at a local goat farm and a tasting experience at a family-owned olive oil farm near Les Baux-de-Provence.

The cruise will also have art focused excursions to let guests immerse themselves in the rich artistic history of the region. Offerings like a walking tour of Roussillon’s Ochre Trail followed by a painting class or a demonstration of silk weaving in Lyon are sure to be popular with vacationing families. Those wanting to take in the history of southern France can participate in immersive historical tours like a viewing of the Palais des Papes. This palace was once the seat of Papal power amongst many other roles in France’s rich past.

New Short Escape Itineraries in Paris, Amsterdam, and Budapest

These new three-day, two-night stays can be added to European river cruises beginning in 2020. Guests will enjoy a guided group itinerary highlighting the best-known attractions in each destination as well as some hidden gems.

Each Short Escape package is a new offering available to combine with existing river sailings. These additions are designed to give guests the best of each city like visits to the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum in Paris. Guests can explore Dutch windmills and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. And visitors to Budapest can experience a performance at the Budapest Opera House and a visit to Matthias Church. Booking for 2020 Adventures by Disney river cruise vacations opens on January 31, 2019.
