Our Danube Xmas Market Cruise for Nov.29 got cancelled (not due to Covid)
We got notified by our AAA Travel Agent today that our (3 couples) Nov. 29 Danube Xmas Market Cruise Vienna to Nuremberg got cancelled as 'Germany has chartered the ship' (the Joy). We just can't believe it. Apparently it has happened to some of the Rhine cruises also!! After panic, and multiple other options (Uniworld, AMA, Viking - none are our preference - as we've done them all) - we were able to get on the same dates but in reverse on the Savor from Nuremburg to Vienna - but we are paying quite a bit more as all the cheaper rooms are taken already. We are locked into those dates as we are all nurses and have to turn in our vacation one year in advance. We had booked our initial cruise Jan. 2020 and we are still in shock. I don't even think most people have even been notified - my TA called to turn in our flights to Tauck and they told her our trip just got cancelled. The dates are still listed on the webpage. No details other than 'Germany has chartered many of the ships.' Vague & so disappointing that we wouldn't even know yet if our AAA TA hadn't called Tauck today.
