Europe rivers run dry
LOW water levels in the Danube and Rhine caused by unseasonably warm weather have led some river cruise operators to alter or cancel trips.
APT Travel Group this week announced the cancellation of five Europe river cruises in Oct.
“With vast areas of the route between Amsterdam and Budapest becoming too shallow to cruise, APT had no option but to cancel a small number of APT and Travelmarvel river cruises,” the company said in a statement.
Meanwhile Uniworld has advised guests that select itineraries may be affected over the coming weeks.
Affected cruise passengers will be offered additional coach travel where necessary.
“Uniworld is actively evaluating the situation and developing contingency plans as changes in river conditions can occur quickly,” the company said.
