Norwegian Star had to skip Glacier Bay on it's 7/31 to 8/7 cruise because of a problem with one of its Azipod engines and was not granted access to Glacier Bay. As of this time it is not known if the problem is fixed or when it will be.
Cruisers were awarded a $200 per cabin shipboard credit.
I sure hope it does get fixed. It was the main reason I booked the Norwegian Star out of Seattle. If it isn't fixed fixed, I will get to see Sitka one more time.

The Norwegian Star provided $200 dollars per cabin..not cruiser. Yes, it was disappointing...however, I didn't want this incident to destroy the wonderful experience we had.......if it is the main reason to book this trip to see Glacier Bay...then make sure you get to see it. We went to Mendenhall Glacier which was Awesome...consider the excursions of the ship..and plan them well....some excursions can be purchased cheaper at port of call
