Adventures by Disney expands river cruise program with AmaWaterways

BURBANK, CA — Adventures by Disney is expanding its river cruising vacations with AmaWaterways for 2017, offering an extended second season of cruises along the Danube River, as well as launching new sailings along the Rhine River. There’s also a new food and wine themed sailing along the Rhine River for 2017.

The new eight-day epicurean sailing through Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands sets sail from Basel on Oct. 21, 2017, includes wine tastings and blendings, vineyard tours and onboard seminars, a French patisserie class in Strasbourg and a tour of the Heineken Factory in Amsterdam.

Adventures by Disney’s portfolio now includes 15 sailings along the Danube and Rhine in 2017.

“At Adventures by Disney we’ve had an incredibly successful first season of European river cruise vacations,” said Ken Potrock, senior vice president of Adventures by Disney. “For 2017 we dreamt even bigger, expanding our offerings to include not only our already popular Danube sailings, but also exciting new experiences along the Rhine River. By adding this new food and wine themed sailing we’re able to give our adult guests an even more customized way to travel with us, and the line-up of experiences we’ve planned for this epicurean adventure allow us to showcase the rich culinary stories of this region in a luxuriously delicious way.”

Guests will sail on the Rhine River aboard the new AmaKristina, a river cruise ship being custom built by AmaWaterways. The food and wine sailing is exclusively for adults, however the Adventures by Disney river cruise portfolio offers vacation options for families as well.
