We are going on the Rhine/Castle, Basel to Amsterdam, river cruise starting Oct. 27, 2013. We have some friends saying that they had heard that at times the rivers are so shallow that you have to get off and take buses. Does this happen often??

Also, anyone going on the above trip and checking on this link, we would like to chat with you.

It says on the topic that the trip we are taking is the Grand Christmas and New Years Cruise. That is not so, we are taking the "Castles along the Rhine".

Hello,

I hope you don't mind if I answer your concern about river cruising in Europe.

This doesn't happen too often, but it does occasionally happen on a river cruise. River cruising is a very unique, comfortable, and to many, the most enjoyable way of traveling through Europe, but unfortunately the fluctuation of the water levels on the river is something that we cannot control.

Please be assured that our operations team in our Europe office and crew onboard our ships are prepared to handle these type of situations. Our team on ships will do their absolute best to ensure you have a wonderful vacation with Uniworld.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at customerservice@uniworld.com.

Best,
Anne (community manager)
