Default NCL Dawn stuck in Norfolk overnight

Just heard on the local news the NCL Dawn was having some type problem and had to come into Norfolk for repairs plus the nor'easter we are having right now also forced her in. Now they are saying she will be here overnight tonight. Quite a few people abandon ship and are heading back to NYC,,,they showed them loading up on the bus for the trek back. Will try to post the article,,,,


NORFOLK

Cruise ship makes unexpected stop in Norfolk

04:06 PM EST on Tuesday, November 21, 2006

By 13News

More than 2,000 cruise ship passengers are stuck in Norfolk until Wednesday night.

The Norwegian Dawn had mechanical problems and pulled into downtown Monday night.

Poor weather off North Carolina also blocked the ship’s route from New York to Florida.


so, the City of Norfolk has set up two tours for the passengers – one to Williamsburg and the other of sites in Norfolk.

The ship was initially expected to leave at 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, but the cruise line said repairs and the weather will force them to stay here another day.

The cruise line says it's extended a full refund for all guests in addition to the $100 per stateroom on-board credit and the 25% future cruise credit of the current trip to be used on any Norwegian Cruise Line ship between now and December, 2007.

Update,,,not only did she spend Tuesday nite but last night as well. She finally pulled out of Norfolk this a.m. Needless to say folks were not happy. I believe I heard she is heading south,,,as they do have a couple days left in their cruise.
