Hello Everybody -
We have been closely monitoring the high water levels in Central Europe along the Rhine, Main, Danube, and Elbe rivers. Based on that communication with our staff on the ground in Central Europe, we have decided to cancel several June GCCL departures.
The departure dates below refer to the main River Cruise itineraries—the pre- and post-trip extensions for these main trip departures have also been cancelled.
· The Great Rivers of Europe: 6/4 and 6/8 departures
· Essence of the Elbe: Berlin to Prague: 6/8 departure
We are in the process of contacting via telephone all travelers affected by these cancellations and appreciate your understanding as we contact everyone.
As of now, we are planning to operate the following June European River Cruise departures:
· Grand European Cruise: 6/7 departure
· Eastern Europe to the Black Sea: 6/7, 6/9, and 6/15 departures
· Romance of the Rhine & Mosel: 6/7 departure
· Essence of the Elbe: Berlin to Prague: 6/15 departure
· Old World Prague & the Blue Danube: 6/20 departure
At present, we plan to operate all European River Cruises departing 6/15 and later without deviation—but please note that this is subject to change based on developments in this region.
As we continue to monitor this situation, we will be updating our homepage, www.gct.com, regularly. If you have immediate questions, please contact our World Events Line by calling us toll-free at 1-800-866-6568
