 Has the recent German river lock workers strike affected GCT River Cruises. If so, which cruises and to what extent ? 

I would direct this inquiry to GCT, but not sure how....

Hello Par5drl -

Thank you for your question.

We have had some minor deviations such as ships departing ports earlier than scheduled.  However, our travelers have experienced all included features & nights aboard the ship.

The strike is due to end at midnight tonight - 7/18/13.  So, we do not expect any additional deviations.

Kind Regards,
Michelle

 I just completed the Great Rivers of Europe cruise.  The dock workers strike was almost completely transparent to the travellers.  GCCL handled it very well and aside from some very minor changes in sailing times and docking locations, a great time was had by all.  

If GCCL had simply did what they had to do and not announced it when somethings changes due to the strike, most passengers would have never even noticed.
