Check for Changes to Your Itinerary
Water levels on the Elbe River are currently high enough to sail in accordance with standard itineraries. Note, however, that conditions may change on short notice, and that any potential effect on future cruises cannot be determined until closer to departure. Itinerary alterations, if necessary, may entail embarkation/disembarkation in unaffected ports, abbreviated sailing portions, certain itinerary destinations being visited by motorcoach, and ship swaps.
We currently anticipate the following cruises may be affected:
- July 28th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Schumann – Guests will embark Viking Fontane instead.
- July 28th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Fontane – Guests will embark Viking Schumann instead.
- July 30th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild
- July 30th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Beyla
- July 30th Poland, Prague & the Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild
Due to a technical issue, Viking Atla and Viking Bragi will be temporarily out of service for repair. The following itineraries will be slightly altered as a consequence:
- July 23rd Grand European Tour aboard Viking Bragi – Guests will embark Viking Bestla instead.
- July 24th Romantic Danube aboard Viking Atla – The ship will be dry docked for repair on July 28th in Linz, Austria.
KEMBS LOCK MAINTENANCE
Due to the scheduled repair work on the lock at Kembs on the Rhine, we anticipate that there may be some delays in sailing between Strasbourg, France, and Basel, Switzerland. Please be advised that prolonged delays may result in slight changes in your itinerary. This situation affects all 2016 sailings on the following itineraries:
- Rhine Getaway
- Rhineland Discovery
- Rhine Rhapsody
Guests on affected departures have been contacted individually.
