Due to thunderstorms and heavy rain we are facing a short term high water situation in Southern Germany along the Danube river. We are facing a few deviations tomorrow, as a few ships won't make it from Passau to Regensburg. The situation is developing, I will keep you informed.
According to a post on cruise critic board there are also high water issues on the Seine, affecting cruises downstream of Paris.

There are a lot of concerns about the river levels since last years drought. I can see this due to the web site statistics. And it is an important questions for a lot of people in river cruise forums. People interested in cruising Europe want to know the the water level for a particular month, and are sometimes really disappointed when they learn that it is too hard to say. WHY is it so hard to predict the river levels? Therefore I try to provide some background information on watersheds, river courses and the main areas where the cruiseable rivers in Europe draw their water from.
