Commodore Ceases Operations
In the wake of the failure of Premier last fall comes more bad news for budget travelers as Commodore Cruise Line and Crown, its one-ship sister company, filed for bankruptcy yesterday and immediately ceased all operations. The line says it has filed for protection under Chapter 11 and plans to consolidate debts and file a plan for reorganization.

Unlike the Premier situation, when the company's ships were seized in mid-voyage, passengers currently onboard Commodore's three ships will complete their cruises, according to Fred A. Mayer, Commodore's chief executive officer. Passengers will be returned, as planned, to original de-barkation points. However, all subsequent voyages are canceled.

Commodore operates three ships. The Enchanted Capri and Enchanted Isle offered two-, five- and seven-day cruises from their New Orleans homeport while the newly acquired Crown Dynasty (the flagship of the company's slightly more upscale Crown Cruise Line subsidiary) sails seven-day trips from Aruba.
