European Vision Leaves Vacationers Stranded in Genoa

Monday, August 06, 2001
Vacationers who booked a cruise on the luxury liner used by world leaders during last month's G8 summit were disappointed when the ship broke down at the weekend.

European Vision had to stop in Genoa on Sunday to allow 1,500 passengers to disembark after an engine problem, a spokeswoman for Festival Cruises said.

The 58,600-ton floating luxury resort, which includes Turkish baths, was home for two nights to world leaders such as French President Jacques Chirac and British Prime Minister Tony Blair during the Group of Eight summit last month.

Passengers, who were on a seven-day cruise, were reimbursed and offered a 50 percent discount on future cruises with the company.
