I purchased the tour as a gift for my parents (both in their 60’s). I once booked them on a Tall-Ship cruise, but they found it a bit uncomfortable - so I specifically booked this Convict Tour as it was on the Wangi Queen vessel. Shortly after making my booking, I was contacted to advise that the Wangi Queen had been damaged in a storm so the cruise was now on a Tall-Ship – this was OK as the contact was prompt and after I explained that I specifically required the Wangi Queen, my parents were rescheduled for a later date. However, 11 days before the cruise, I was advised there wasn't enough bookings to make the cruise profitable - so it was cancelled, and I was asked to reschedule. I rescheduled for 3 weeks later and was assured – after specifically asking – that I’d receive at least 2 weeks’ notice in the event of yet another cancellation. 4 days - yes, only 4 days before the cruise, I was notified that the latest booking had also now been cancelled due to a lack of numbers. Again, no empathy or offer of compensation, just a request for a new preferred date. The cruise/tour itself was apparently OK - but I wouldn't recommend cancelling other plans or declining invitations to other events for this cruise, as you can only rest assured your cruise will actually go ahead about 3 days out from the date you've booked and paid for.
