That was a close one! It looks like Kate Gosselin‘s plans to tour the seas with her biggest fans have sunk, as Royal Carribean confirms that the event featuring TLC‘s Kate Plus 8 star has been canceled. So what went wrong; other than it being a bad idea from the start?
“We just didn’t get the turnout that we desired and mutually we agreed that if we didn’t get it, we would cancel,” says a spokesperson for Luxury Cruises.
They didn’t see that coming? Networks don’t just cancel reality shows for no reason. Obviously, Kate doesn’t exactly have the pull that she had back in the Jon and Kate Plus 8 days. And definitely not enough for a large number of people to willingly spend a week with her on a ship at $1,900-$3,175 per ticket!
But don’t worry. Those who actually wanted to be
put down and punished uplifted and entertained by the mom-of-eight were given the option of a full refund for their purchase.
“Some have chosen to continue on with the cruise, but everyone was given the choice,” says the spokesperson, making it clear that Kate wasn’t a part of the decision to cancel the event. “Kate asked for everybody’s names, addresses and phone numbers and reached out to each one personally.”
