TD breaking news – Royal Caribbean cancels five Brisbane voyages due to sale of Legend of the Seas

UK-based Thomson Cruises to take over Legend in March 2017. 

Royal Caribbean Cruises has just confirmed the sale of Legend of the Seas to UK-based Thomson Cruises, with the deal resulting in the cancellation of five previously scheduled voyages roundtrip out of Brisbane early in 2017.

A sixth cruise on 09 April will also be rescheduled, bringing forward Legend‘s repositioning from Brisbane to Asia to 20 February 2017, which will mark the vessel’s final Australian sailing.

All onward itineraries on Legend of the Seas in Asia and Europe will also be impacted. Two extra sailings will be offered from Singapore to Dubai, and Dubai to Barcelona, while Rhapsody of the Seas will then replace all scheduled Legend voyages in the Mediterranean from June to October 2017, with identical departure dates and itineraries.

Rhapsody of the Seas‘ published cruises over this period, sailing from Cape Liberty New York, have been cancelled.

“We are truly sorry to disrupt our guests’ holidays and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused,” the cruise line said in a statement, with all affected passengers to be contacted either directly or via their travel agent to assist them in securing an alternative Royal Caribbean cruise, as well as discussing hotel and flight arrangements.

Full refunds will also be provided for any passengers who choose not to cruise, the company said.
