We were on a trip which was affected by extreme rains and high water. I do not think that excursion happened on our trip. I know our excursion -- the Black Forest tour was cancelled. Those who booked on board got an immediate refund. We received a refund/credit from Vantage after we returned home. The people who went on the Iron Works & Nature excursion raved about it.
Enjoy your trip. We loved the River Venture: the crew was so caring, the food was fabulous, our cabin (328) was very comfortable.

Vantage clarified some information for us. It is possible to sign up for Optional Tours once you board the ship, pending available space on the tours. Also, the itinerary in Mainz has changed in that the ship's "Standard Itinerary" in Mainz has changed from a full day to half day so it is possible to see Mainz and the Gutenberg Museum and still take the Optional Tours in Worms and Speyer.
Thank you also for the information about the ship "River Venture."
