NZ's Strannik Ocean Voyages selling fast

#expeditioncruising .

Rodney Russ, owner and founder of Strannik Ocean Voyages writes:

"We have one twin-share cabin and one male berth* available on this departure.  To see and experience all of Fiordland’s fiords is a trip of a lifetime. There are 14 fiords, but one of them, Sutherland Sound, is only accessible by Zodiac, the remaining 13 create one of the greatest cruising grounds in the world.  It is wrong to think that just because they are all fiords they are all the same; every one of them is unique and different with their own story.  We invite you to experience and enjoy these 13 fiords.

Following a report in LATTE Luxury Travel Trade newsletter, it appears Island Escape Cruises has abandoned its Kimberley program and left passengers high and dry.

"Just received an email from Island Escapes advising us our Kimberley cruise ex Broome due to start tomorrow has been cancelled," writes one disappointed passenger on the cruise company's Facebook page. "Unable to contact anyone. No word on refund, not to mention flights from Sydney to Broome."

Attempts by both media and passengers to contact IEC have been met with silence. An automated response from IEC founder Peter Bissett reads simply: “I resigned from the company on 4 July 2022”.
