We are on our ship for our cruise BUT the ship is not moving. when we were picked up at out point on the 2nd, we were taken to Strasbourg instead of Basil, as the ship could not fit under the bridge. The river is still rising. The rain has stopped. & the sun came out today. we are hopping that we sail on tonight (Mon) or Tuesday. We came for a cruise not a bus trip

Hello Wendy, are you doing a Rhine cruise towards Cologne - Netherlands? Anyway wishing you a very good time with better weather
and no high flood. It should work out fine normally because there was
not too much snow in winter so it can not melt and go into the rivers
Hugs Maria
