Voyages of Discovery has been forced to cancel a departure tomorrow following power failures on the Voyager.

The 15-day Land of the Midnight Sun cruise was due to set off from Portsmouth tomorrow, however the line has cancelled the cruise following the technical issues which occurred on June 9 while the ship was in Killybegs.

Initially specialist engineers were called in to deal with the issues, however the line now says the ship is going into dry dock for repairs.

It is the second cruise affected, with a ten-day Heritage of the British Isles cruise being cancelled in the days following the power outages involving two of the ships four generators.

Voyages of Discovery said they were currently contacting all passengers booked on tomorrow’s cruise and affected trade partners.

All passengers booked on the cruise will receive a full refund plus £50 per person, or the option to receive credit towards another booking for a cruise onboard the Voyager or Minerva to the value of 140 per cent of their original paid fare.

The line said: “Voyager will sail to a dry dock in Bremerhaven, Germany, for the repairs to take place. The ship will then continue on its summer charter with Always of Belgium from June 25, 2013.

“Voyages of Discovery has apologised to all passengers for these unusual and unforeseen circumstances which have arisen as a result of events outside their control.”
