Major cruise destination change made before departure - UK tour operator failing to provide full significant change rights

Have booked a a cruise with [NAME OF CRUISE LINE] for 7 days starting on 11th sept 2010. The itinerary includes Corsica which was illustrated with a photo in the brochure..Corsica was one of the main reasons why we booked this particular cruise. We now received a letter saying that Corsica is no longer on the itinerary and will be replaced by Nice. None of the party is interested in going to Nice. I contacted my booking agents,[NAME OF TOUR OPERATOR] who told me it was [NAME OF CRUISE LINE] decision and they could nothing about it unless we changed to another cruise which would be at a significant extra cost. Contacted [NAME OF CRUISE LINE] by phone and was told the same,tried by e mail but had no reply. Have looked at the small print which says they can change the itinerary at any notice. Do you think there is nothing I can do,it seems very misleading especially as we have just received a flyer from [NAME OF CRUISE LINE] offering the same cruise with Corsica on it.I phoned them and the travel operator was not aware that Corsica was not the cruise. Appears to case of misleading the public.
