I read this letter that went out to all booked direct and to the TAs of those booked thru them to include the March 23 cruise. All the 7 day cruises.
Dear Valued Travel Partners & Guests,
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has important information for you regarding Norwegian Spirit’s 7-day
Western Caribbean sailings from New Orleans, Louisiana
from January 20, 2008 until March 23,
2008. All guests booked on these sailings need to be aware of this change and travel professionals are
asked to forward this information to their clients.
Because of a technical issue with one of her four engines, Norwegian Spirit will be travelling at a
reduced speed for the above mentioned sailings. Please be assured that the engine issue reducing our
speed capabilities in no way impacts the safe operation of the vessel.
Based on this reduced speed, we will arrive in Roatán, Bay Islands, Honduras two hours later than
originally scheduled. We have made every attempt to maximize your time in Roatán. Unfortunately,
because of our technical issue and the distance between New Orleans and Roatán we are unable to
arrive earlier. Our revised itinerary will be:
Sun New Orleans, Louisiana 5:30 PM
Mon At Sea
Tue Roatán, Bay Islands, Honduras
3:00 PM 8:00 PM
Wed Santo Tomás de Cas tilla, Guatemala 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
Thu Belize City, Belize 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
Fri Cozumel, Mexico 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
Sat At Sea
Sun New Orleans, Louisiana 8:00 AM
It's not often that we need to alter an itinerary. When we do, we know it can cause disappointment.
Guests choosing not to sail as a result of this itinerary change may cancel their cruise without
cancellation fees and receive a full refund of the cruise fare paid. Please contact your travel
representative as soon as possible should you decide to cancel your reservation as cancellations must
be made by Friday, January 18, 2008.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Norwegian Cruise Line. Should you have
any questions about this change, please call us at (800) 327-7030. As always, a NCL representative is
available to assist you.
