Passenger vessel operator Haimark Line Limited has cancelled all future cruises, the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) has advised.
Haimark operates a single vessel, the 210-passenger Saint Laurent, and has cancelled its planned sailings from Miami to Cuba due to prolonged financial issues. Haimark has not sailed since it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October 2015.
In accordance with FMC regulations, Haimark maintains an escrow account to refund applicable passenger fares and deposits for cruises departing from a U.S. port in the event that the cruise line fails to perform any such cruises. The account does not provide reimbursement for payments for air travel
, shore-side hotel expenses or other expenses that do not constitute water transportation or its related services, the FMC said.
