Have a question for any recent river cruisers who traveled on the Main, Rhine, or Danube rivers.

How was the river water level during your cruise? Any issues with low (or high) water?

We're traveling in December on the Danube through Austria and I haven't heard of any issues, so I'm hoping all will be well.

Just had clients return from a Danube and no issues with water issues.

You cannot predict what may happen in December, though, as we have dealt with both high and low levels in December.

Curious about the water levels as well.
so hope to hear from Caviargirl on her return from her cruise!
Have a great time. Thanks for the PRAGUE pick up from the airport. Have them all booked!
Thinking of just taking a cab from ship to hotel post cruise and then hotel to airport on return day home.
Thanks again for any information you might send my way about levels!
