– PATRICK ADAMSON, COMPANY SPOKESMAN
Passenger comfort and safety is of paramount importance to both Cruise and Maritime Voyages and All Leisure Holidays and sincere apologies have been made to all the 657 passengers who boarded the 'Discovery' and lost out on this unique cruise.
A significant compensation package and full refund has been provided.
Owners and their technical manager's efforts are now focused on ensuring the 'Discovery' is in top shape for its next scheduled cruise on March 15.
A 15-day cruise, which was due to leave from the West Country, has been suddenly cancelled. All 700 passengers were already on board.
