Home> Why Scenic? > Travel Alerts Low water levels Parts of central and northern Europe are currently experiencing a very hot and exceptionally dry period. Forecasts suggest little change through August in this weather pattern. As a consequence, the water levels in sections of the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers and their tributaries are low and are impacting navigation of all vessels, and may require Scenic to modify ship deployments frequently and on short notice. Scheduling of our fleet of Scenic Space-Ships allows us to enact ship swaps where possible, to ensure the continuation of guest’s itinerary. Scenic will contact as a priority all guests and their travel agents if their River Cruise is impacted.
