Aurora Expeditions’ subsidiary, Pacific Travel Partners, has acquired the assets from the defunct small cruise company, Vantage Deluxe World Travel.
Vantage filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in late June, due to financial pressures stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pacific Travel Partners took on unsecured creditors and clients’ obligations who had paid for but not received services from the company before it ceased operations.
This led to a class action lawsuit after some travellers were left stranded.
They will receive a credit for future travel through Pacific Travel Partners, which can also be used to pay up to 50% of an Aurora Expedition voyage.
The company stressed that it did not acquire the business or agree to employ members of the management team.
Pacific Travel Partners will also be trading under a new business name.
Vantage Deluxe World Travel was a Boston (Mass)-based company that owned the assets of Heritage Expeditions and Nordic Hamburg.
