Van Gogh Finally Returns Home

Day 2 --Van Gogh's Still Impounded in Funchal!
Is Van Gogh Cursed?
Van Gogh Cruises Cancelled through November

Van Gogh, the 15,400-ton, 500-passenger ship arrived back in Falmouth on Sunday evening after a rather eventful few days.

If you have been following the story you will know that last Tuesday the ship was detained in the port of Funchal, Madeira, because of a financial dispute between the ship's owner, Club Cruise, and its previous operator, Travelscope (which went into administration in December 2007).

The 400 plus passengers who were on a three month world cruise had originally been due to dock in Falmouth on Saturday.

The ship was released from the Portuguese island after the dispute was settled on Thursday evening and began its journey back to the U.K.

A spokesperson for the ship's new operator, Van Gogh Cruise Line, told Cruise Critic that the vessel would arrive in Falmouth around 8:30 p.m. U.K. time.

Passengers who made independent travel arrangements can leave the ship Sunday night and those with pre-arranged transfers will depart on Monday morning.
