When a cruise line goes bankrupt

Letter from Renaissance Cruises

ABOVE: It isn't every day that a ship's captain reneges on a dinner invitation, but sometimes there's a good reason.

Ten years ago today, Renaissance Cruises declared bankruptcy while we were sailing from Le Havre to St. Peter Port, Guernsey on the R7.

In a new article at Europe for Cruisers titled "Renaissance Cruises Bankruptcy: 10 Years Later," we recall what happened at sea on September 25, 2001 and when our ship was "arrested" the next day in Dover, England.
