British company All Leisure Holidays has ceased operations, according to a message on the company’s websites.
All Leisure operated two cruise ships, the Minerva and the Voyager, under the brand names Swan Hellenic and Voyages of Discovery.
“Regrettably, and due to the adverse financial position of ALH, the business has ceased to trade resulting in the majority of employees being made redundant and the cancellation of all future voyages,” said a message that was posted on both the Swan Hellenic and Voyages of Discovery websites.
Customers who have booked and/or paid for package vacations that include flights were advised to get additional information from the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority. Customers who have booked and/or paid for a vacation without flights were advised to make a claim online.
G Adventures acquires tour companies
On Dec. 30, Canadian tour operator G Adventures acquired All Leisure’s tour operations, Travelsphere and Just You.
Travelsphere is an escorted tour company and Just You is a U.K.-based solo travel specialist, which puts together vacations for independent travelers without charging a single supplement.
“We are now able to offer an even wider range of escorted tours right across the world and to suit all age ranges,” G Adventures founder Bruce Poon Tip said in a statement.
