Europe rivers run dry

Cruise Weekly - - News -

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.
