Rising Water Levels Force Tui River Cruises To Evacuate Ship

Post by Seashore »

Fortunately everyone was safe in the evacuation but, as discovered by watching a video on Facebook, they were taken into some sort of barge with the ship stranded mid-river close to a bridge.

I was originally booked to be on the now cancelled Friday 7 June departure. I’m booked for the Friday 14 June sailing on Tui Isla but not holding out a lot of hope.

My mum did a Danube cruise a number of years ago and water levels meant that they couldn't get under bridges so had to be bussed back to the airport from an earlier port on the river.
