If you have an upcoming trip on the Danube or Rhine, please be advised that the conditions along these rivers have been affected by Europe’s unseasonably warm and dry weather. These weather conditions have continued longer than anticipated, resulting in low water levels in some areas. Select itineraries may be affected in the coming weeks. If deviations are necessary on an affected itinerary, additional motor coach travel or other tour adjustments may be required. Should there be a major itinerary change, we will inform impacted guests and their Travel Advisors as soon as those changes are known and confirmed.
Due to the unpredictable nature of river conditions, we are actively evaluating the situation and developing contingency plans at all times. Changes in river conditions can occur quickly, and because of this we may not always be available to provide advanced notice that a contingency plan has become necessary. Please be assured that our headquarters in the U.S. is working with our European operations team to provide our guests with the original program or alternatives that meet our strict standards for quality and service.
