Norwegian Star changes itinerary due to mechanical issue

Published on : Saturday, January 28, 2017

Norwegian StarMechanical fault in the propulsion unit of the Norwegian Star cruise ship, forced the cruise-line to alter the itinerary of the cruise ship. The information was revealed by the cruise-line on 27th January.



The cruise ship initially departed on 16th January from Hong Kong, and it was on a 33-night voyage to Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, when the azipod of the cruise ship started to give trouble mid-journey.



The cruise ship had to cancel halts at Brisbane, Komodo Island and Airlie Beach, in order to reach Sydney by 6th February, as scheduled before. But, as per the revised itinerary, the ship will stay three more days at the ocean and it will call at Darwin. The cruise will leave the port in Sydney on 6th February.



The cruise-line informed that they will reveal the revised itinerary for 18th and 24th February to the passengers after finalising it in the coming days.



The cruise-line issued the formal statement regarding the changes in the itinerary on Friday, 27th January. The statement said that the ship’s system experienced a technical malfunction on January 24, which resulted in the ship’s speed being restricted from full capacity, which is a very unusual situation and unrelated to the issue the ship experienced in December.



The statement also said that all guest activities, amenities and services onboard the ship are functioning normally, while the speed of the vessel has been affected, there has been no interruption to any guest services and there are no safety concerns as safety and security is, and will always remain, their number one priority.



The Norwegian Star had to endure another mechanical fault in December 2016 that forced the cruise to alter the itineraries.
