Be our guest! AmaWaterways has announced Beauty and the Beast river cruises for 2018 in the US!
These special themed river cruises will be run in partnership with Adventures by Disney, and will take place on-board the soon-to-debut AmaKristina. The river of choice for these river cruises for families? The beautiful Rhine.
AmaKristina will sail to France, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands, incorporating fun-filled adventures such as toboggan riding, hiking through the Black Forest, exploring Heidelberg Castle and wine sampling. All activities will help guests to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds that inspired Beauty and the Beast, including Riquewihr: the French village that inspired Belle’s own home.
Beauty and the Beast themed fun
The itinerary on-board AmaKristina promises to be magical, but the Beauty and the Beast themed fun doesn’t just extend to the locations guests will visit. You can also take part in on-board themed dinners, as well as screenings of both the classic animated film and reimagined, live action remake.
“For 2018, we looked to find exciting new ways to make our incredibly popular river cruises even more enticing to every type of traveller,” said Ken Potrock, senior vice president of Adventures by Disney.
“By increasing the number of special themed sailings along the Rhine and Danube rivers, we now offer more choices than ever for our guests. Whether you are looking to explore the storybook setting of Beauty and the Beast, wine and dine on local specialties during interactive epicurean workshops, stroll charming European Christmas Markets or celebrate during rousing Oktoberfest festivities, Adventures by Disney has carefully crafted personalized vacation experiences to suit your interests and tastes.”
Step into a world of enchantment
AmaWaterways’ Beauty and the Beast themed river cruises are an amazing way to see the sights of the Rhine, marrying your family’s love of this classic film with an exploration of culture and fabulous food.
With six sailings scheduled in 2018, and itineraries lasting eight wonderful days, these river cruises are sure to sell out fast. They are limited to the USA for now, but once these Disney river cruises land in the UK, you will be the first to know. Keep your eyes peeled!
