Basically reserved. If, for example, due to low water, high water or bad weather, a route cannot be sailed, the skipper reserves the right to change the route for your safety (this is not a free reason for cancellation). As your ship usually sails to the next port on the same day, your time frame for your own undertakings and sightseeing is limited. On some bridges, the clearance is so low that the sun deck is closed for your safety.
