Vantage told me this morning that this is perfectly legal to overbook. Does Viking and Avalon have the same booking policies?
Sounds a lot like the airlines... As long as they let you know it is a possibility, then they can get away with it. I don't know of any other company that does this.

We chose Vantage because of their itinerary. It is obviously too late to choose another cruise company but I would like to know for any future river cruises we take.
I don't know that it is too late to book with another company. Lots of companies now pushing great sales on Christmas Market cruises. Might be worth a look.

Of course, air fare might be a different issue....
