Know Before You Book - High & Low Water

European river cruising has gained in popularity for very good reason. It's a relaxing and convenient way to experience Europe while enjoying the comfort of a deluxe ship. However, before making the decision to reserve your vacation, please be aware of potential conditions which may impact your cruise. While most of the time river cruises operate exactly as planned, weather conditions may result in high or low water levels which impact a ship's itinerary and, on occasion, render a ship unable to sail at all. On very rare occasions, other events such as heavy fog, a damaged lock, or an incapacitated vessel blocking the river, may impact a sailing. These events typically occur with little or no notice. In the event that a cruise is partially or completely impacted, the itinerary will be operated by deluxe motor coach, accompanied by a Tour Manager, with overnights in hotels. The itinerary will include as many of the originally scheduled sightseeing features as possible, considering the travel time and distances required, as well as meals. While it is not possible to recreate the more leisurely comforts of sailings, we will endeavor to provide a comparable itinerary. These alternative services will be provided at no additional charge.


Entry Requirements:
Passengers traveling abroad require a passport valid for six months beyond their travel dates. All travelers are responsible to check if a visa is required for all countries on their itinerary. For visa information, check our Visas page.



Is This Trip Right for You?

This moderately active trip covers a fair amount of ground each day. Expect from three to four hours walking every touring day. The pace is moderate, however you will encounter some uneven surfaces, stairs, steps and significant slopes. There is a potential for a small number of sailings to be impacted by river water levels, or other factors which may impact safe navigation. This may cause part or all of the cruise itinerary to be operated by motor coach and may also involve hotel accommodations.

It was beyond expectation and ran so smoothly it was scary. We kept waiting for a hiccup around the corner and it never happened! Our tour guide in Guayaquil was Fernando and he was great. Our Naturalist on board the Santa Cruz II was Sebastian and he was fantastic beyond belief. Our tour guide in Quito was extra special. Everyone met us at the appointed time. This is our 3rd trip with Gate 1 and most assuredly is not our last. We have mentioned your company to dozens of people and will continue to do so.

We enjoyed our Danube River Cruise very much. We had been on the bus trip from Prague to Budapest, but this was a different experiencing being on the river and sightseeing some different cities and villages. Beautiful scenery, great accommodations and fabulous food! Lots of history and the day excursions on foot or by bus were very fun and enlightening. Our guides were very knowledgeable too. We plan to take more Gate 1 trips. Thank you for a memorable trip!

We had a wonderful, worry-free trip. The Adriatic Queen was a very comfortable ship. The captain and crew were not only skilled sailors, but also friendly and willing to answer all of our questions. Our tour director, Lana, made every day and every stop interesting. The water in the Adriatic is so clean and clear. Our captain found us a safe place each day to anchor for a swim ....

15 Day Classic Greece with 7 Day Aegean Cruise, October 2018
Dummy Image

This was our first Gate 1 tour and I must say it was outstanding. We saw so much of Greece, both the islands and mainland in the 2 weeks we were there. I couldn't have asked for more. Celestyal Crystal was an older ship, the crew kept it spic and span and provided such wonderful service ... The food was excellent and a good variety. The provided tours, drink package, and other add ons were great. Although the cruise was contracted to Celestyal, having Constantine and Julia along to guide us through things and insure we got everything we were supposed to was stellar. The hotels and their buffets were great. We had a free cooking class for lunch, that was great; thank you Gate 1 ... All the Gate 1 personnel at the airport, hotels, tours, etc were super. This was an outstanding value for the money! We ran into many other people on this trip that had been on prior Gate 1 tours and could only say the best things. We look forward to traveling with them in the future, possibly a Russian river cruise in 2020. We're already committed through 2019. Once again, thanks for a wonderful experience Gate 1!

9 Day Danube River Cruise - Vilshofen to Budapest, July 2018
Dummy Image

It was a wonderful trip and we have absolutely no complaints, only praise ... Our tour director (Adriene) was unbelievably attentive and also upbeat even at the most challenging times, and Activity Cooridinator (Daniele) always had something going for us to look forward to. The dining room staff, reception staff, and cabin staff were equally attentive. The food was excellent and there was always plenty to choose from. The small size of the boat allowed us to meet and get to know many great people that we plan on keeping in contact with. Every day was extremely well-organized and our time at each stop was utilized to the max. We will definitely recommend this cruise to others.

9 Day Rhine River Cruise - Basel to Amsterdam, June 2018
Dummy Image

We had a wonderful trip. It was our first cruise of any kind and all our expectations were met. We have no interest in large cruise ships and really enjoyed the intimacy of the smaller river boat. The staff were great, food was very good and with a nice number of options, and we enjoyed the arranged walking and bus tours with local guides. We hope to do this again some day and will definitely recommend Gate 1 and the river cruise to others.

12 Day Classic Alaska with 7 Day Cruise, June 2018
Dummy Image

We had a great time. Devon was cute as a button, welcoming and included everyone as part of our tour family. She was knowledgeable about Alaska and the sites that we visited. Jesse, our driver, was really nice and he went out of his way to tell us about places that we were seeing and stopped so we could look at Denali when it was in full view. It was very spectacular. We had great weather and the trip was very smooth and pleasant. When we got to the cruise, we already had several nice acquaintances and it was fun running into each other on the cruise and even having dinner and social time with some people that we met on the land tour.
