Boston-based cruise company Vantage lays off all employees, consumer advocate says
Amid ongoing investigations, lawsuits and hundreds of consumer complaints, Boston cruise company Vantage Deluxe World Travel laid off its employees last week, according to Consumer Rescue.
Consumer advocate and mediator Michelle Couch-Friedman said she spoke to multiple former Vantage employees who told her the company let them go over a company-wide phone call June 20.
“Right up until last Tuesday they were told they were going to be saved by some mysterious investor. That’s why they continued to work and sell these cruises,” Couch-Friedman said. “The employees that contacted me were very upset. They really did believe this was not going to be the end of Vantage.”
