River Water Levels
River water levels dictate what happens for your cruise. If the river water level is too low or too high, your river cruise may be delayed, ships changed, overland adjustments made or alltogether cancelled. The river cruise companies may make alternate arrangements, like substituting a river cruise for an over land journey.  The river cruise company may swap ships, sometimes more than once, to complete the itinerary, provide motorcoach transportation and or put you up at a hotel rather than on the ship. The river cruise company may or may not issue a refund, or give any compensation for the change in itinerary or mode of transportation, as the rise and fall of river levels is considered an act of God. Further, you trip insurance, if purchased, may not reimburse you for these occurrences. You should check with your insurance company prior to making any payment to the river cruise operator ( i.e. Viking River Cruises ) and find out if their policy covers such circumstances. Failure to understand the coverages provided, could result in your claim being denied.
