We just returned from a Danube River Cruise on Viking. The cruise began in Budapest. Four days into the cruise, we were informed that a barge had damaged a lock up ahead of us on the river, making it impassable for our ship. We were taken from the original ship by bus 4 hours overland to our final port of call, Nuremberg, and loaded onto another Viking ship. That ship was docked up in an industrial area of the river, directly across from the Nuremberg dump and there it stayed for the remainder of our “cruise”. We missed 3 days of cruising and one port of call. Viking bussed us to another port of call and took us into Nuremberg for the regularly scheduled tour. I am sure that the company that owns the barge that damaged the lock has insurance and that Viking and all the other ships unable to pass the river at that point will be receiving big settlements from that policy. Viking has offered me a $250 voucher on a future cruise, that I do not want. I want to be fairly compensated for the 3 days of cruising I missed, as well as the one port of call trip that was cancelled, and for the lousy view of the dump I endured for 3 days from my stationary cabin. Does anyone here in this forum have a feeling as to whether or not I will be chasing my tail in pursuing a monetary claim (amounting to 3 days damages according to the price I paid for the entire trip)?
