I have done an Adventures by Disney Rhine River Cruise vacation and I consider it the best vacation I've ever been on and cannot wait to do another one! Everything you may think of has been thought of and if you need something the Adventure Guides are ready to help you with any needs you may have. We had to change ports the day prior to arrival. Instead of having us scramble to figure out what we were going to do the next day, our Adventure Guides had already created new excursions for us in the new city we were visiting - allowing us to enjoy our vacation, all we had to do was let them know what we wanted to do out of the new excursion offerings.
