Important remarks regarding routing/program: The De Willemstad shipping company reserves the right to make changes of routing and program. In case of flood or low tide, it reserves the right to bridge parts of passages by buses and in extreme situations, reserves the right to cancel the journey on short notice. No legal right shall be constituted of both situations. (Water level is force majeure). The same applies for officially ordered – previously not announced – repair work on locks or bridges or in case of undeserved breakdown of engine or power unit.

Please be aware that a cruise ship on the Dutch and Belgian waterways is not only your hotel but also a machine, working with engine power also during the night. Especially crossing locks and bridges – and the preparation work – may cause noise. If you are sensitive please bring your own ear plugs.
