    Sunbeds

    Thanks for the info. How bizarre, it doesn't sound like 6* service!

    Can anybody confirm or otherwise if the sunbeds provided by Seabourn have mattresses or not. Thanks.

    Notamermaid, just to echo the thoughts of all the posters above and we'll raise a glass to you when we set sail from Basel next Wednesday! Happy Christmas to you and yours.

    Just an update, the Scenic Opal is now in Koblenz, so everything is looking good, fingers crossed!

    Hi Olivera, We had the generic email from Scenic over the weekend stating the itinerary may be amended due to low water levels...…..etc. The Opal is currently on its way to Amsterdam for the 5th Dec sailing to Basel, so it will be interesting to see if it can navigate the gorge. Hopefully we should know tomorrow if our cruise will go-ahead without any amendments. https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/shipid:3415229/zoom:14 Philandher

    Just wondering if anybody has got an accurate position for the Scenic Opal, Marinetraffic has it in Frankfurt while Cruisemapper has it in Dettelbach on the Main?

    Sounds like your boiler is suffering from a low water level!!! Actually sounds like your thermostat is the problem. Northwest actually, Liverpool to be precise.

    Thanks Notamermaid, that's much appreciated. Just one other request, what levels are required at Kaub to enable the135m vessels to navigate through the gorge?

    Notamermaid (you'd probably struggle if you were at the moment!!), What is the rainfall catchment area that specifically impacts on the Rhine Gorge and Kaub? Thanks, Philandher

    We sail from Basel on the Opal on 12th December, I'm waiting for a realistic reply from our TA & Scenic.

    Thanks, do you have the link to the Scenic thread?

    I've been following this thread for a few weeks now as we sail from Basel to Amsterdam on 12th December on Scenic Opal. It would appear that there is a difference in the way various cruise companies are dealing with the issue, my question is, has anybody had any experience of how Scenic have dealt with or are dealing with the problems on their past or current cruises? Thanks.

    Do you depart from Zurich or Basel, if it's the Opal you are on, hopefully, we will be joining you.
  15. Thanks for the insight, quite informative. I think we'll just have to sit and pray for rain between now and mid December!
