Ken’s dream holiday ruined

Maybe if Ken hasn't gotten this resolved the Barbados Tourist Board could help out...you never know....The man always wanted to come to Barbados...I hope someone makes his dream come true....

Ken’s dream holiday ruined : "A PENSIONER fears he has lost his savings and missed on his dream holiday after a travel company went bust – 24 hours after it withdrew money from his bank.
Ken Williams, aged 72, of New Park, Talbot Green, spent two years saving for a £3,148 luxury cruise, which was set to sale from Falmouth to Barbados this April.
But Mr Williams was horrified to find that just a week after booking the holiday Travelscope Holidays Limited was going into administration – a day after taking the money out of his account.
Mr Williams said: “I booked up for the cruise on December 16 – I had always wanted to go to Barbados."

Hi Ken - your holiday has been saved. The owners of the mv VAN GOGH have set up their own Tour operator in the UK and it is continuing with all cruises. You need to ring them on (UK) 01242 633 799 to obtain details and an ABTA form so your money can be recouped and transferred to them.
Happy Cruising
