So I am new here and I first time cruiser.
I am booked with three other friends to go from LA to the Mexican Riveria on Jan 4 2006.
I checked out the itinerary on the NCL Cruise website to find that Acapulco and Ixtapa are not on the trip anymore and have been swapped with Manzanillo and Mazatlan.
Originally we were to have been in Acapulco for 24 hours and now we are in Manzanillo for about 8 and then we leave for Mazatlan.
I called NCL to find out the reason and was told that the Star is having problems with one of her engines and so she can't motor fast enough to get to Acapulco in time. I was also told that every guest would get a $50.00 credit on their account.
Now I see that there are other NCL ships with engine troubles.
So any ideas what is happening to these ships? Should I ask for more credit on our accounts?
Also any suggestions about what to take/ what to expect appreciated too.
