Look at the NCL site. On the home page is the answer to your question.
I beleive if you search these boards you'll see that NCL is not telling the whole story as they've had some engine issues the last few outings and it appears to have become a big enough issue to sideline the ship.....
No one knows if they are or are not telling the whole story; I feel so sorry for all those who thought they would spend NYeve on a ship just to learn they are land bound. Unfortunately this happens to ships; thank goodness they hadn't flown to Europe or someplace like that just to get stuck.
I am glad to see NCL offer a 50% reduction on another cruise: that is some consolation at least. NMNita
We sailed Norwegian's m/s Majesty for a Western Caribbean cruise leaving out of Charleston on December 23, returning on December 30. The engine stopped while we were in the Atlantic. They were able to re-start the engine, but were afraid to re-boot it to bring up the generators. We sailed for 24-hours with no air-conditioning.
NCL has known about the engine problems with the Majesty since September, 2006. They were negligent to send the ship out in such poor condition. NCL is the absolute worst cruise line in the world.[/b]
