Adventures by Disney’s 2024 Lineup: More Than Just a River Cruise
One word: magical. The leading theme of Disney’s 2024 river cruise portfolio is none other than their brand-new offering, the “Danube River Cruise: Magical Holidays.” Picture sailing the Danube River as the calendar year culminates, welcoming a new one amid the stunning backdrops of Germany, Austria, and Hungary. If you’re up for an opulent New Year’s celebration, this is the itinerary you’ve been waiting for.
A New Year’s Voyage like No Other
Kick off the festivities in Munich, where you’re greeted with an authentic German welcome complete with oompah music. From there, the ship transports you to Austria for privately guided tours in Mondsee, boasting views of the Austrian Alps, and a visit to the Benedictine Abbey in Melk among other enriching experiences. The voyage culminates with a New Year’s champagne toast in the transformed Christmas market of Schonbrunn. It’s not just a trip; it’s a narrative.
Nostalgic Cruises Make a Comeback
For those who have favorite itineraries from previous seasons, fear not. Staples like the seasonal Oktoberfest and Christmas Markets river cruises are back, along with the gastronomic journey that is the Food and Wine sailings. Each of these voyages delivers an exotic feast for the senses, immersing you in regional meals, desserts, and beverages.
Storytelling Comes to Life
Why is Disney’s take on river cruising so distinct? It lies in their meticulous blend of storytelling and adventure. Imagine dashing through Germany’s Black Forest on an Alpine toboggan or experiencing Paris through the centuries-old grandeur of the Notre-Dame Cathedral. Each adventure is curated to make you a part of a living, breathing story. It’s Disney’s signature touch.
