Following the news about Norwegian Pearl’s cancellation on day one of sailing and returning to Miami and the last-minute cancellation of Norwegian Getaway’s January 5th sailing due to positive COVID cases, the cruise line has issued more cancellations and has delayed the return of further ships to their fleet.
In an email sent to travel agents, Norwegian says
We are focused on providing the safest and very best vacation possible as we continue with the thoughtful redeployment of our fleet around the world. With that in mind and due to ongoing travel restrictions, we are further suspending the return-to-service dates.
|NEW RETURN DATE|
|Norwegian Sky||March 2, 2022||Miami, Florida|
|Pride of America||March 5, 2022||Honolulu, Hawai’i|
|Norwegian Star||April 3, 2022||Barcelona, Spain|
|Norwegian Sun||May 5, 2022||Seattle, Washington|
|Norwegian Spirit||May 7, 2022||Papeete, Tahiti|
Additionally, Norwegian announced the Norwegian Pearl’s next departure will be January 17, 2022 following its return to Miami due to 50 crew members testing positive. The Pearl is set to arrive in Miami on January 6th. NCL also said the Norwegian Getaway will sail again on January 17, 2022 after its last-minute cancellation for January 5. Further, the Norwegian Jade has been canceled through March 30, 2022.
All impacted guests with reservations on suspended or canceled sailings will receive a full refund to the form of the original payment, which will automatically be returned. As a gesture of our appreciation for their loyalty and willingness to continue to choose Norwegian impacted guests may also receive additional compensation in the form of a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) discount.
