Embattled Boston-based cruise company Vantage postpones all summer trips

Vantage Deluxe World Travel (Logo)The beleaguered cruise company Vantage Deluxe World Travel quietly told its employees all trips through Aug. 28 are postponed, as complaints against the Boston-based business continue to pile up.

In an internal email, Vantage V.P. of Worldwide Operations & Marketing Deirdre Dirkman told employees the 90-day postponement was because of the company’s “impending transaction.”

The email shows Dirkman said Vantage decided to dock two of its vessels—Ocean Explorer and Ocean Odyssey—in France, “until we have a better idea of the timeline for restarting operations.”

The Mass. Attorney General’s Office says it received at least 793 complaints against Vantage Deluxe World Travel since Jan. 1, 2020, including 156 complaints filed in 2023.
