AMSTERDAM

Viking normally enjoys prime docking locations in all the ports we visit, but due to limited availability of docking spots in central Amsterdam, the port authority has reassigned several Viking ships to alternate arrangements.

The following departures are affected:

  • September 4th Rhine Getaway aboard Viking Hlin
  • September 4th Voyage to Switzerland aboard Viking Hlin
  • September 4th Grand European Tour aboard Viking Magni

ELBE RIVER

The Elbe River is currently experiencing low water levels due to limited rain fall. As a consequence, sailing is restricted for certain ships and parts of the river. Impact on individual cruises varies, but may entail embarkation/disembarkation in unaffected ports, abbreviated sailing, certain itinerary destinations being visited by motorcoach, and ship swaps.

As conditions may change on short notice, full effect on future cruises cannot be determined until closer to departure. We currently anticipate the following cruises may be affected:

  • August 27th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking AstrildViking Astrild will likely be docked in Wittenberg Days 3-5. Guests will then likely swap to identical sister ship Viking Beyla docked in Dresden, for Days 5-9. Shore excursions will be operated by motorcoach.
  • August 27th Poland, Prague & the Elegant Elbe aboard Viking AstrildViking Astrild will likely be docked in Wittenberg Days 3-5. Guests will then likely swap to identical sister ship Viking Beyla docked in Dresden, for Days 5-9. Shore excursions will be operated by motorcoach.

KEMBS LOCK MAINTENANCE

Due to the scheduled repair work on the lock at Kembs on the Rhine, we anticipate that there may be some delays in sailing between Strasbourg, France, and Basel, Switzerland. Please be advised that prolonged delays may result in slight changes in your itinerary. This situation affects all 2016 sailings on the following itineraries:

  • Rhine Getaway
  • Rhineland Discovery
