Song of Flower Delays Reentry
Song of Flower, the Radisson Seven Seas Cruises ship that has seen a handful of hiatus periods due to world unrest following the September 11 terrorist attacks, will delay its previously announced reentry. The ship, originally slated to return April 21, will miss its first four cruises. The new date for Song of Flower's return is May 26, when it will sail a seven day Rome to Lisbon itinerary.

A company spokeswoman dodged our logical "what's the reason" question but it's pretty easy to read the between-the-lines message that is reinforced by numerous cruise operators in Europe: bookings there have fallen way off.

Song of Flower has been in and out of service since the September 11 terrorist attacks put a real crimp on its ordinarily exotic itineraries. Radisson first canceled its winter season in October, 2001, as it was slated to sail through the Suez Canal into Asia. Song of Flower returned for its summer 2002 schedule in Europe, but Radisson again canceled its winter itineraries, this time scheduled for South America.

Radisson passengers who are displaced as a result of these newest cancellations will receive the usual refund offer and a $1,000 per cabin future cruise credit for those who rebook.
