30 April 2013Cruise Illness / Virus Outbreaks
On two consecutive cruises, ship's passengers were disembarked in Kehl-Strasbourg and then transported via buses to Basel (Switzerland). They were informed that the voyage is cancelled due to the risk of flooding on Rhine River in Strasbourg (France).
However, according to some online media sources, there was no danger of flooding. During the river cruise from Amsterdam (Holland) to Basel, a number of passengers suffered from diarrhoea (Norovirus symptom) and the company had to cancel the shore excursion in Dusseldorf. On the onward cruise, more passengers suffered from diarrhoea, so the company decided to end the voyage in Strasbourg and bus all passengers to Basel.
The boat was disinfected in Strasbourg and without passengers arrived in Basel. The next scheduled cruise left from Basel on April 21 (2013) in the evening and sailed overnight to Speyer (Germany). On April 29, all passengers were once again disembarked in Strasbourg for alleged flood danger and bused to Basel. Presumably, the ship Antonio Bellucci was sanitized again, but this time the new passengers were bused from Basel to Strasbourg for embarkation and the same day the riverboat departed to Speyer.
