Let the world come to you

It’s an entirely new way for families to experience the heart of Europe.

It all starts aboard your luxury-appointed river cruise ship—where you’ll only need to unpack once and have everything you need close at hand. And because it’s an all-inclusive vacation, all the essentials for an unforgettable family vacation are included in your stay. It’s active and immersive, too. Imagine biking along the Danube or Rhine Rivers, learning archery at a historic castle or macaron making in the heart of France. And since these are Adventures by Disney® -exclusive sailings, you’ll enjoy world-class service from your AmaWaterways crew, and, of course, your Adventure Guides.
