To say I am in a bad mood this evening is an understatement. I’m absolutely fucking gutted!
Just got an email from easyCruise telling me that the third-party boat company that runs the Holland & Belgium inland cruise boat is in financial trouble and will be ceasing operations this Friday. Our cruise was supposed to start on Bank Holiday Monday, lasting for a week.
It was also going to be my only proper holiday, and a much needed one, this year.
I should add that I’m not mad at easyCruise. The company let me know the situation quickly and in an efficient and courteous manner. It has offered to refund the cost of my flights (booked through BMI) as well as the cost of the actual cruise, and have offered me a free cruise at some point over the next year on its own boat, currently sailing around Greece. Can’t fault that.
I’m just sick as a parrot as I was really looking forward to the trip.
Will have to see if I can find us a decent last-minute deal for the same period, but somewhere that isn’t full of kids and yobs.
