Holiday plans of cruise passengers in disarray

The holiday plans of hundreds of West Australians are in disarray after a replacement for the cruise ship Athena could not be found.

Sydney-based Classic International Cruises, which booked Athena for a series of Australian cruises over a four-month period, went into voluntary administration more than a week ago.

Consumer Protection has today advised more than 500 WA passengers that the cruise has been cancelled.

At least 5,000 passengers throughout Australia will be affected.
