In addition to the full refund, passengers on the December 11 sailing will also receive a 50% off future cruise certificate. The ship returned to Singapore shortly after leaving port so repairs could be made to the ship’s azipods.

Norwegian has also modified the itinerary for the December 22 sailing from Hong Kong that swaps port days for sea days in Thailand and also bypasses a stop in Taiwan.
