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:

  • July 1st Rhine Getaway aboard Viking Mani
  • July 1st Voyage to Switzerland aboard Viking Mani
  • July 3rd Rhine Getaway aboard Viking Kara

DANUBE RIVER

The Danube River is currently experiencing high water levels near Passau, Germany. The impact on current sailings is limited and varies depending on departure, but may entail delays, itinerary adjustments and ship swaps.

As conditions may change on short notice, effect on future cruises cannot be determined until closer to departure. The following departures will be affected:

  • June 25th Romantic Danube aboard Viking Njord – Guests will embark Viking Freya instead and likely swap back to Viking Njord midway through the cruise.
  • June 25th Romantic Danube aboard Viking Freya – Guests will embark Viking Njord instead and likely swap back to Viking Freya midway through the cruise.
  • June 26th Grand European aboard Viking Magni – Guests will embark Viking Baldur instead and likely swap back to Viking Magni midway through the cruise.

Due to a technical issue, Viking Bragi will be temporarily out of service for repair for the following departure:

  • June 25th Grand European aboard Viking Bragi – Guests will embark Viking Bestla instead

ELBE RIVER

The Elbe River is currently experiencing low water levels due to limited rain fall. Currently, this primarily affects the sailing portions in the Czech Republic between our regular embarkation/disembarkation port Melnik and Bad Schandau, just across the border in Germany, as well as the stretch between Wittenberg and our embarkation/disembarkation port Magdeburg in Germany. Impact on individual cruises varies, but may entail embarkation/disembarkation in unaffected ports, abbreviated sailing, and certain itinerary destinations being visited by motorcoach.

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

  • June 25th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Astrild
  • June 25th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Beyla
  • June 25th Poland, Prague & the Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Beyla
  • June 30th Elegant Elbe aboard Viking Schumann
