We’ve been getting pretty excited learning all about the upcoming cruises by Adventures by Disney. They have certainly taken the idea of luxury of river cruising and given it the kind of upgrade any Disney star including Mickey himself would approve of. Today, we’re exploring the Rhine River itinerary Adventures by Disney is offering. We think you’ll find yourself wanting to hop aboard this exciting cruise vacation after you read more about it.


You’ll travel to six destinations in four countries on this 8-day/7-night Adventures by Disney Rhine River cruise vacation. Your trip will begin in Basel, Switzerland and end in Amsterdam, The Netherlands with plenty of exciting experiences along the way.

  • Cruise departure: You’ll fly into Basel Airport where you’ll be transported to Basel, Switzerland – the city the cruise will depart from. Be sure to ask Ingenious Travel about early arrival activities and accommodations, attractions and dining reservations should you decide you would like to explore Switzerland before your cruise.
  • On-board cruise experience: You’ll enjoy 8 days and 7 nights aboard either the AmaKristina or the AmaMora river cruise boat (depending on when your cruise travel dates take place). Both boats feature spacious staterooms, a heated pool, a massage and hair salon, a gift shop and a specialty coffee station.  
  • Cruise arrival: On day 8 your cruise boat will arrive in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and you can either depart same day from Amsterdam Airport Schipol, or stick around another day or two to explore The Netherlands. Again, be sure to ask Ingenious Travel about late departure activities and accommodations, attractions and dining reservations should you decide you would like to explore The Netherlands before your flight home.
