According to new reports, two Classic International Cruises vessels were arrested on Sept. 17 in Marseille for outstanding fuel bills and labor issues. In addition, a third CIC ship, Arion, was said to be detained in Montenegro for similar issues.

Cruise Industry News could not immediately reach company officials for comment.

The Athena and Princess Danae were detained in Marseille for what reports said are failure to pay wages and fuel costs.

Recently, another CIC ship was arrested in Dublin, but was allowed to sail when the owners and bunker company came to a settlement.
