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.

The 2016 river cruise season has not started yet and we already had the first accident. Vantages River Navigator collided with a tanker in the port of Duisburg while the ship was being test by the crew. As we are off season, no passengers were on board, and also none of the crew or technicans were injured.
