Cruise West strands passengers, "restructuring"
One ship's travel was stopped completely; others are completing trips through October. No new bookings accepted.

I read this the other day, and it is really sad for those who literally emptied their piggy banks to make this life long dream come true.

That said..this statement boggles my mind : The two estimate they are owed upward of $50,000 for the cancelled trips. Getting a refund will be difficult since they paid by check and did not have travel insurance. Cruise West isn't answering their phone calls or e-mails either. Two stupid moves on their part!

How could anyone book this trip without insurance!@!!! You can bet this ship had many older people, with this kind of itinerary,and not taking insurance, was a bad roll of the dice...Poor are those who took out insurance with the cruise line...OH nooooo!!

Amy - why would you post this in a thread about CruiseWest going bankrupt and trsanding passengers?

By the way - the reason MSC would do a circus themed cruise is solely because it is a non-verbal show. MSC has to do shows that will appeal to five languages at the same time.
