Hello Everybody -


We have been closely monitoring the high water levels in Central Europe along the Rhine, Main, Danube, and Elbe rivers.   As of now, 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.

The June European River Cruise departures scheduled to operate include:

  • Grand European Cruise: 6/18, 6/19, and 6/22 departures
  • Eastern Europe to the Black Sea: 6/15 departure
  • Eastern Europe to the Black Sea: President's River Cruise: 6/24 departure
  • Romance of the Rhine & Mosel: 6/21 departure
  • Essence of the Elbe: Berlin to Prague: 6/15 and 6/22 departures
  • Old World Prague & the Blue Danube: 6/20 and 6/25 departures


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.


Kind Regards,

 I called grand circle to verify that the June 22 cruise, The Great Rivers of Europe, Is still scheduled and was told that it was going to take place.

I was wondering why it was not shown on your entry today?

Jayge, thanks for asking this question. I've been wondering, too, as we are scheduled for the Great Rivers on June 18th.
