Miscellaneous

  • All passengers must be 18 years if age.
  • Valid Passports required. Passports must be valid until March 24, 2020 (minimum of 6 months after the sailing dates) due to local authorities, air carriers, and cruise line requirements.

*Minimum Number of Registrations Required: A minimum of 120 persons must be registered and deposits received prior to December 14, 2017 before the ship will be contracted for charter and the cruise is confirmed. We currently have over 250 fans who are on the wait list and fully expect the approximately 146 passenger positions to sellout in a short amount of time. However, in the unlikely event the 146 person registration minimum is not met, the cruise will be canceled and all deposits will be 100% refunded no later than January 15, 2018.

Travel Insurance is strongly recommended: For travel scheduled this far in advance, considering the somewhat unreliable air transportation of our times, and the inherent nature of river cruising we strongly recommend passengers purchase reliable travel insurance. Whether it be for unforeseen personal circumstances which arise between now and September of 2019 or unavoidable weather delays which cause a cancellation or delay in your travels, please explore the numerous options available which will provide protection for your specific circumstances and needs. We do not recommend any specific insurance provider but suggest you seek out recommendations and reviews on the internet.

How Water Levels May Affect a River Cruise: While a river cruise may not be susceptible to the risk of a port of call being closed to to large ocean swells as during an ocean cruise, there are times when the water level of a river may affect shipping traffic and the ability of your ship to navigate the waterway as scheduled. Too high a water level and the ship may not be able to navigate underneath the numerous bridges along the way. Too low a water level and the risk of running aground may prevent a ship from proceeding. To read a good article explaining Water Levels on the Rivers of Europe Click Here
