PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The air-conditioning problems that waylaid
Premier Cruises' Big Red Boat II have been rectified, said a
company spokesman, and the ship is scheduled to return to New York
from Boston in time for its July 1 departure.
Premier canceled yet another sailing of the steamy ship on
Monday, two days into a New England/Canada cruise from New York;
all 900 passengers were off-loaded in Boston after the
Passengers were transferred back to New York by motorcoach and
were advised to contact their travel agent to reschedule their
cruise or request a full refund.
Guests also will receive a certificate for a future cruise on
any Premier ship.
