Disney plans 'Beauty and the Beast'-themed cruise for 2018

 (Adventures by Disney)

“Beauty and the Beast” fans, listen up: Adventures by Disney has announced six Rhine river cruises in 2018 centered around the “tale as old as time.”

Guests will cruise aboard the AmaKristina or AmaStella for eight days with plenty of activities geared toward celebrating the villages and culture that inspired the classic film.

Families can expect a “Beauty and the Beast”-themed dinner, screenings of both the original animated film and the 2017 live-action flick staring Emma Watson, unique culinary experiences, as well as a trip to Riquewihr, a quaint French village that resembles Belle’s hometown.

In addition to “Beauty and the Beast,” Adventures by Disney has planned a variety of other themed river cruises for the year.

In September 2018, there will be a new adults-only Oktoberfest sailing through Germany, and the company has doubled epicurean tours along the Rhine.

The new itineraries come after Adventures by Disney partnered with Ama Waterways last year to focus on bringing families to the river cruising market.

Reservations for all Adventures by Disney 2018 cruises are now available to book.
