Island Escape leaves passengers wondering. Island Escape Cruises’ guests left stranded. Chaos for Kiwi company’s Kimberley program
The travel plans of guests booked to sail with Island Escape Cruises in the Kimberley have been thrown into disarray after the small-ship operator is understood to have cancelled last weekend’s sailing at the 11th hour.
Island Escape Cruises operates one luxury yacht – the aptly named Island Escape – which entered service in New Zealand earlier this year. Having already operated a number of sailings in the Kimberley since May, booked passengers are currently venting their fury on social media at the sudden and unexplained suspension of Sunday’s sailing, terminated within 24 hours.
