AMIE and MAL has other problems too. A disappointed passenger posting on www.Cruise reported that the September 29 sailing of the Empress of the Northwas cancelled that very day. Passengers who were staying with the ship's pre-cruise hotel package found notices under their hotel room doors at 8:30 in the morning telling them their trip was cancelled. To add insult to injury, they were then asked to rebook their own return flights home, if the reticketing charge was under $100.00. That's not any way to run a cruise line!
