All Leisure Holidays Limited, which operates both Voyages of Discovery and Swan Hellenic, have been placed into administration with the majority of employees being made redundant and all future cruises cancelled due to the adverse financial condtions All Leisure Holidays find themselves in.
It is understood that around 13,000 advance bookings are affected but with All Leisure Holidays being an ABTA member, passengers will be financially protected with passengers with bookings advised to visit the ABTA website for more information.
The futures of both Voyager and Minerva still look somewhat unclear. Voyager will be up for sale but Minerva was only leased to Swan Hellenic and therefore is somewhat of a more difficult proposition.
All Leisure were making plans for the 400 passengers that were on board to be returned to the UK at no extra cost with subsequent cruises on Voyager and Minerva being cancelled.
