I don't know how much this can help but just to clarify ...

The company who own the ship "Olympic Countess" is apparently in financial difficulty. The ship was impounded in Durban on a US (I think) court order as security against outstanding debts. It's important to make a distinction between the owners and the tour operators who effectively "hire out" the ship for a cruise. Based on all news reports the tour operator (Star-something cruises I believe) has refunded all passengers affected.

Don't know who you've been trying to contact without success - if it was the owners then I'm not very surprised. If it is the cruise operators then post the name here and us locals can try to rummage up a telephone number for you.

not sure if you can help but we had depended a lot on this trip as it was planned to coincide with all our other flights etc. Now in a unknown position of what to do for 22 days and losing our deposit????. My partner is returning to see S A after 21 years, has a terminal disease and it was very unfortunate, but that's life. Many thanks for your Time... Alan

Hello Alan,

If you post this question under a new title, it may have a better chance of attracting posters with the appropriate knowledge.

Hope you have a great trip.
