I have been trying to monitor this thread for a couple of months now and although I'm starting to understand some of the terms and acronyms, it is still very confusing. We are leaving for a cruise on the Danube (Bucharest to Budapest) in two weeks and have one key question - if the water is low (or high) in Germany, how long does it take for that to impact the water in Romania and Bulgaria.
I am not nearly as worried about boat swaps and a few bus rides because our trip was cancelled at the last minute last year (literally, we were already packed) and I would hate to have it cancelled again. Just getting there, even if there was some inconvenience with a few extra bus trips, would be preferable to having to miss the trip completely again. I guess my question is how do I translate this information to what the consequences will be at the end we plan on traveling.
