Families will embark on more   Adventures by Disney  river cruise vacations than ever before in 2021 with 30 sailings along four enchanting European rivers: Danube, Rhine, Rhone and Seine. Select departures are reserved exclusively for families traveling without children, including Food and Wine and Oktoberfest-themed cruises, and festive holiday sailings wrap up the extended river cruise season. 

New for 2021, guests aboard Rhine River voyages can travel to Papenburg, Germany, for an inside look at the construction of the fifth   Disney Cruise Line  ship, the   Disney Wish.

Advance booking begins Jan. 27, 2020 for all previous  Adventures by Disney Guests, or   Jan. 28, 2020  for Disney Vacation Club Members, Golden Oak Club Members and  Disney Cruise Line Gold & Platinum Castaway Cay Club Members. 

General booking begins Jan. 29, 2020.

Family Vacations in the Heart of Europe
Sailing with AmaWaterways, a premier luxury river cruise line, these all-inclusive vacations are filled with active, immersive experiences curated by the family travel experts at Disney. A team of specially trained Adventure Guides are master storytellers who bring each destination to life and provide a seamless, authentic experience marked by signature Disney service. 

On   Rhine River  cruises, guests explore storybook villages in Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands. Highlights include a toboggan ride through the black forest, high-adrenaline thrills at an indoor winter park, horseback riding through the French countryside and a voyage through the Upper Middle Rhine Valley offering up-close views of 30 majestic castles. 

New on the Rhine River itinerary is a unique   excursion   to Meyer Werft shipyard  in Papenburg, Germany, where the newest   Disney Cruise Line  ships are being built. Guests who book this activity will go behind-the-magic at the building docks on a privately guided hard-hat tour led by a Disney Imagineer. This intimate, limited-capacity experience will be available at an additional charge on all 2021 departures. 

Danube River  sailings visit eight unforgettable destinations in Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, where adventurers roam medieval ruins, scale treetop rope bridges and marvel at the rolling hills made famous in “The Sound of Music.”  

Rhone River  vacations through the south of France transport guests to sun-soaked Provence, a region celebrated for its colorful culture, charming villages, lush vineyards and world-renowned cuisine. Interactive excursions include an art workshop inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, a private truffle-hunting experience and tasting, and kayaking beneath a 2,000-year-old Roman aqueduct.  

Seine River  cruises celebrate the magnificence of rural France with visits to picturesque provincial towns, the historic beaches of Normandy, Monet’s House and Gardens, the dramatic cliffs of Etretat, and Paris – the “City of Lights.” 

Specialty, Seasonal and Themed Departures
The 2021   Adventures by Disney  river cruise lineup includes a variety of specialty sailings that feature themed offerings onboard and onshore, in addition to the excursions and entertainment already built into each itinerary. 

Throughout the year, select departures are reserved for families traveling without children. During these   adult-exclusive sailings, guests 18 years of age and older enjoy all of the magic of an   Adventures by Disney  river cruise with the addition of tailored enhancements designed just for them. These dedicated sailings meet the increased demand among adult travelers for   Adventures by Disney’s unique blend of sophistication, variety and adventure in a fun, comfortable setting. 

Special adult-only vacations include themed   Oktoberfest   sailings  on the Danube River and  Food and Wine cruises  on the Rhine River, each offering an extra serving of refinement and fun for culinary connoisseurs and “foodies” alike. Also on the Danube, festive   Christmas Market cruises  are a magical way for families to celebrate the holidays like never before. Each of these specialty vacations is offered twice in 2021.

Pre- and Post-Cruise Itinerary Enhancements in Paris, Amsterdam and Budapest
Adventures by Disney
 guests can extend their European river cruise vacations with three-day, two-night stays in some of Europe’s most celebrated cities. These guided group itineraries are designed to maximize vacation time, highlighting “must see” attractions as well as lesser-known hidden gems. Two dedicated Adventure Guides lead guests in enriching, exciting activities the whole family can enjoy. 

The  Paris Escape can be added to Seine and Rhone sailings to round-out vacations in northern or southern France. Guests enjoy spectacular views of the “City of Lights” from their seats at dinner in the Eiffel Tower, a private walking culinary tour, and an immersive visit to the Louvre Museum guided by a local expert and a special art detective activity for Junior Adventurers. 

The  Amsterdam Escape can be added as a post-cruise stay following Rhine River sailings to complete the cruise’s four-country journey. This itinerary features a bucket-list canal cruise, a culinary tour of the trendy Jordaan neighborhood and a visit to the Van Gogh Museum followed by an interactive painting workshop.

The  Budapest Escape can be added to Danube River sailings as the perfect land complement to the Central European tour by water. The itinerary checks off the city’s must-see sites with a focus on enriching cultural experiences like sampling authentic Hungarian cuisine, riding in a tuk-tuk (motorized rickshaw) and reveling in a performance at the Budapest Opera House.

Adventures by Disney  Escapes can be booked as standalone getaways or as add-ons to other vacation plans.
