Fishing net interupts Regent Seven Seas Voyager’s round the world voyage

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On April - 2 - 2009

Regent Seven Seas Cruises canceled Seven Seas Voyager’s April 18 and May 8 cruises so the ship can enter drydock for repairs to a damaged propulsion pod. Return to service is expected May 21.

The vessel, which is currently in Dubai, will withdraw from service upon arrival in Civitavecchia, Italy on April 18.

A fishing net became tangled in the ship’s starboard propulsion unit after departure from Singapore two weeks ago, causing a mechanical failure in the pod. Since then, Voyager has been operating on one pod, at reduced speed, which has affected the scheduled itinerary.

Arrangements will be made to transport passengers back to their city of origin from Rome. Customers on the April 18 world cruise segment from Istanbul and the May 8 sailing from Fort Lauderdale are being contacted.

Displaced passengers will be offered various options which may include re-accommodation on an alternative RSSC voyage or voyages or a full refund. Travel agent commissions are being protected.

Seven Seas Voyager’s world cruise began in Los Angeles on Jan. 12 and was scheduled to end in Fort Lauderdale on May 8.
