Discovery Cruise Line Cancels Sailings Due to Mechanical Problems

April 21, 2009

Discovery Cruise Line has cancelled sailings to the Bahamas aboard Discovery Sun until 30 April, according to a statement on the company's Web site.

The one ship cruise line offers day trips from Ft. Lauderdale down to Grand Bahama Island, as well as cruise and stay packages to the Island.

A statement on the cruise line's Web site says: "Due to mechanical difficulty, in order to perform repairs, Discovery Cruise Line has cancelled voyages from Sunday April 5th to Thursday April 30th, 2009."

Passengers wishing to cancel or rebook their cruise can do so with Discovery Cruise Line. Anyone wishing to cancel will receive a full refund.

The South Florida Sun Senital newspaper reports that that earlier in the month, the company chartered flights to get passengers stranded in the Bahamas back home to South Florida.
