If the cruise length upriver and downriver are the same, it may be that
the completed dam has changed the river current enough that the flow no
longer has an impact on cruise duration. On our cruise, we heard the
current was going to be reduced. Your post suggests this has already
happened even though the complete flooding still has three years to go.
We cruised upriver in 2002 and the trip lasted on more day compared to
the same trip downriver.
