Van Gogh Cruises Cancelled through November

March 25, 2008
Van Gogh Cruise Line, the new one-ship line that emerged in February out of the wreckage of now-defunct tour operator Travelscope, has announced that it will cancel 17 ex-U.K. sailings aboard its Van Gogh. After Van Gogh completes a world cruise on April 5, the next seven months of cruises -- which included sailings out of Hull, Falmouth and Harwich to the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Norwegian Fjords, the Baltic and Canary Islands -- are officially off the docket.

What's not off the docket is a vague promise of cruises in November 2009.

Those scheduled to sail Van Gogh on one of the now-cancelled cruises will be contacted immediately, in the order of their sail date. The line is going to try to reschedule passengers onto one of the upcoming winter sailings -- which the line claims will begin on 22 November -- but if new arrangements cannot be worked out, passengers will receive a full refund.

Stay tuned for more details tomorrow.
