Default FYI - Norwegian Cancels Cruises

NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE dropped the Norwegian Star's Fanning Island calls on the ship's final four Hawaii itineraries and canceled its repositioning cruise from Honolulu to Vancouver on May 2 because of problems with its azipod propulsion system. The ship can sail at 18 knots, NCL said, but it cannot reach the 25-knot speed necessary to sail to Fanning Island. The April 4, 11, 18 and 25 voyages were revised; each will sail an all-Hawaii itinerary instead. The line also canceled the May 2 cruise in order to send the Star to drydock early for repairs to the propulsion system. Passengers booked on that cruise will receive a full refund, a future cruise credit worth 25% of their fare and applicable airline change fees.
