Voyages of Discovery cancels another cruise

By Tom Stieghorst
Voyages of Discovery said it has canceled a second cruise because of a technical issue and will send its ship, the Voyager, to drydock in Bremerhaven, Germany, for repairs.

The 15-day Land of the Midnight Sun cruise to northern Norway was scheduled to leave June 11.

Voyages of Discovery discovered the technical problem as the ship was being repositioned to Portsmouth for the cruise, the company said.

Voyages of Discovery had cut short a cruise in May because of a generator issue that also forced it to cancel a June 2 British Isles cruise.

All passengers booked on the 11 June cruise will receive a full refund, or the option to receive credit toward another booking for a cruise onboard the Voyager or the Minerva to the value of 140% of their original cruise fare paid, the company said.

After dry dock, the Voyager will continue on its summer charter with Always of Belgium from June 25, the company said.
