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.
