Our first night on the ship, AmaViola for the Adventures By Disney Danube River Cruise. Thanks to Adventures by Disney for Sponsoring our trip so we could feature this amazing European River Cruise.
We flew into Budapest, Hungary the night before and stayed in a Hotel so we could adjust to the time change and get on the ship as early as possible.
The next morning, we met up with the ship, the AmaViola which is owned by Ama Waterways. It was docked just a couple blocks from our Hotel and was really easy to find.
We got to the ship early, so we had a chance to relax in the lounge and tour the ship while our rooms were being prepared.
Since we were in Budapest, Adventures by Disney brought onboard some traditional Hungarian dancers for a really fun performance before dinner.
We also had an introductory meeting where we learned all about what we would be doing this week and got to meet the Adventures By Disney staff and crew of the ship.
After that, the captain took the ship out for a short voyage along the Budapest waterfront so we could take in all the amazing sights and lights. This is an experience we will never forget.
It was only the first night (out of 7) and such a great start to a week that turned out to be simply amazing in every way.
