Vintage Pictures of German Rivers

While checking the Internet for extreme river conditions in Germany, I stumbled upon this great source of vintage pictures.

Space between ships when double docking

One phenomenon of the booming river cruise trend in Europe: "Double Docking" or rafting becomes more and more custom in the ports.

List of Locks along the Rivers

One huge difference between an ocean cruise and a river cruise are all the locks along the rivers. Most river cruise ships are designed in such a way not to waste any space and just fit into the locks. For example the lock width along the Rhine Main Danube Canal is 12meter, so all ships can have a maximum width of 11.40m. That leaves exactly one foot of space to the right and left if a ship enters a lock. Therefore they sometimes bump into the walls, which may be very unpleasant at night. That is one of the little details most operators or travel agents do not mention.

Me @ work on Youtube

This spring a friend colleague of mine send me an email that he found me on a tour at Nuremberg two years ago. The video includes some nice scenes from the Main Danube Canal and the MS Serenade 1. How can I prove the ships identity? You can see the wheelhouse and identify the ships ENI.

Lock closure 2012 ended

Since May 2nd all locks on the Main, Danube and Rhine Main Danube Canal are shipable again. If you cruise them at the moment, expect a few delays due to traffic jams.
