Update on Danube River water levels
UPDATED: August 4, 2015
In response to the current low water level on the Danube River between Regensburg and Passau, Germany, Uniworld has implemented contingency plans that include revised sailing schedules and, in some cases, moving guests from one vessel to another to allow the cruise programs to continue with minimal delay. This applies to the following itineraries:
- July 22, 2015 River Empress sailing, European Jewels
- July 29, 2015 River Princess sailing, Delightful Danube & Prague
- August 5, 2015 River Princess sailing, Delightful Danube & Prague
- August 5, 2015 River Empress sailing, European Jewels
- August 2, 2015 River Ambassador sailing, Danube Discovery & Prague
- August 1, 2015 River Duchess sailing, European Serenade
- August 9, 2015 River Ambassador sailing, Danube Discovery & Prague
- August 14, 2105 River Duchess sailing, Grand European River Voyage
It has also become necessary to cancel the European Jewels August 9 departure on the S.S. Maria Theresa as the only alternative to operate this cruise was to incur a significant amount of coaching and hotel stays which we did not believe was in the best interest of our guests. We have contacted our guests and travel agent partners to inform them of this change.
We continue to monitor the situation very closely with our nautical team in Europe, and we hope to see improvement in the water level in the near future. Until then, please be assured that the safety of our guests, crewmembers and vessels is our highest priority. We sincerely appreciate the understanding and support our guests and travel industry partners have shown during this challenging time.
These are currently the only cruise programs that have been affected by the low water situation on the Danube. We will update this page as new information becomes available.
