Low water cruise complaints

Jump to last reply

There are a number of complaints and lots of outrage regarding the low water levels on European rivers that virtually cancelled the cruises on those rivers by Viking, Avalon and other cruise companies. Unfortunately it appears that it has been a problem this year and it seems to me, last year as well.

The feeling seems to be that the cruise line should have known about the low water problem. Without getting into a discussion of how they should know that the water would be low, it's similar to taking a cruise during hurricane season--you take your chances. Or if you go to Hawaii and it rains! Or taking the river cruise for a week and it rained every day! Who do you blame? The gods-no because you can't get any compensation from them.

The solution: with spending a lot of money, $10,000, $20,000 for a cruise, it would seem to me prudent to buy trip cancellation insurance, the cancel for any reason, cancellation insurance.
