See You in September - Royal Olympic Cancels Newest Vessel's Summertime Cruises

Thursday, June 07, 2001
Due to the delay in delivery of Olympic Explorer from Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Royal Olympic Cruise Lines has been forced to cancel the cruises of its new vessel until September 15, 2001.

The delay is reportedly due to certain technical problems that need to be addressed and solved before the vessel's delivery. The matter has since been referred to the yard's technical team, who is assessing the situation.

The company said that all passengers, who had been booked to cruise on Explorer during the above period would be offered alternative cruises onboard other Royal Olympic vessels.
