AMSTERDAM

Viking normally enjoys prime docking locations in all ports we visit, but due to limited availability of docking spots in central Amsterdam during the popular Tulip season, the port authority has reassigned several Viking ships to alternate arrangements.

The following departures will embark in Coenhaven:

  • May 28th Grand European Tour aboard Viking Skadi
  • May 28th Rhine Getaway aboard Viking Alruna
  • May 29th Grand European Tour aboard Viking Baldur
  • May 29th Rhine Getaway aboard Viking Hlin

Guests on affected departures have been contacted individually.

ELBE RIVER

The Elbe River is currently experiencing low water levels due to limited rain fall. Currently this primarily affects the sailing portions in the Czech Republic between our regular embarkation/disembarkation port Melnik and Bad Schandau just across the border in Germany, as well as the stretch between Wittenberg and our embarkation/disembarkation port Magdeburg in Germany. Impact on individual cruises varies, but may entail embarkation/disembarkation in unaffected ports, abbreviated sailing, and certain itinerary destinations being visited by motorcoach.

As conditions may change on short notice, effect on future cruises cannot be determined until closer to departure. We currently anticipate the following cruises may be affected:

  • May 28th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild
  • May 28th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Beyla
  • May 28th Poland, Prague & the Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Beyla
  • June 2nd Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Schumann
  • June 2nd Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Fontane
  • June 4th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild
  • June 4th Poland, Prague & the Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild
  • June 4th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Beyla
  • June 9th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Schumann
  • June 9th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Fontane
  • June 11th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild

  • June 18th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild

DOURO RIVER

The high water situation on the Douro River is over. Locks are open and all upcoming departures are currently on schedule.

RHINE RIVER

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.
