German-owned river cruise ship A-Rosa Mia was taken out of service on 10th August for repairs after striking a pedestrian bridge above a lock on the River Danube early that morning. There were no injuries, but all 192 passengers and crew were evacuated and passengers were bussed from the Jochenstein lock on the German-Austrian border to Passau, Germany.

A-Rosa subsequently cancelled three cruise itineraries for the ship, which was scheduled to return to service on 25th August following repairs at Linz. The damage was reportedly severe as the hydraulic navigation bridge took the impact with an estimated cost of €150,000.
