MV Van Gogh rescued world cruise set to start!

 

BBC Cornwall are reporting:

Hundreds of cruise passengers are off on their world trip from Cornwall after fearing it would not go ahead when the operators went into administration.

Travelscope Holiday’s 93-day cruise on the MV Van Gogh had been under threat, but travel organisation Abta has arranged for the ship to sail.

Gloucestershire-based Travelscope went into administration just before Christmas.

The 460 passengers boarded the vessel on Friday afternoon.

The company was covered by Abta bond and the Civil Aviation Authority’s Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (ATOL), meaning those who had travelled abroad with Travelscope were able to continue their holiday.

The passengers on the Dutch-owned Van Gogh will visit the Caribbean, Ecuador, Tahiti, New Zealand, Sydney, Mauritius, Cape Town and Madeira.

The vessel is due to return to Falmouth on 5 April.
