And finally… sea change

Hundreds of holidaymakers experienced an unexpected end to their trip after their cruise ship changed course to avoid seizure by US authorities.

The Crystal Symphony was bound for Miami, Florida but docked at Bimini in the Bahamas after a US judge said the luxury liner could be seized in a dispute over unpaid fuel bills.

The ship’s operators arranged alternative transport back to the US for passengers, with some taking a ferry and others taken to local airports, Quartz reports.

Genting Hong Kong, the parent company of Crystal Cruises, went into liquidation earlier this month over unaffordable debt.
