17 August 2018Other Incidents
In 2018, cruise tour departure August 19 was canceled due to low water levels in some sections of the rivers Rhine, Main, and the Danube. The ability for safe navigation of river vessels in central Europe varied on a daily basis. Due to restrictions on Upper Danube (section Passau-Regensburg), critical water levels prevented safe navigation and the scheduled departure from Amsterdam Holland (August 19, themed "Classic Rhine Cruise") was canceled.
Emerald Waterways tried to make alternate arrangements (transfer to another Star Ship or revised itinerary) but didn't provide any suitable. The canceled 7-day itinerary (Amsterdam to Basel) included visiting the German port towns Xanten, Andernach, Cochem, and Bernkastel-Kues.
