Cruise Lines Cancel Cruises Due to Propulsion Problems

Cruise lines including Carnival Cruise Line and Norwegian Cruise Line have had to cancel cruises with month due to propulsion problems with cruise ships.

Norwegian Cruise Line canceled the current sailing on Norwegian Pearl, a 13 night round trip voyage from Rome. The cruise line said that due to a technical issue with the ship’s speed, the cruise would have to be canceled so repairs could be made to the vessel.

For guests who were scheduled to sail on the July 5 sailing on Norwegian Pearl, they received a full refund of their cruise fare, a 100% future cruise credit for another cruise, and up to $300 in flight change fees.

Carnival Cruise Line canceled three sailings on Carnival Vista this month due to a problem with one of the ship’s azipods.

Carnival gave the following reason for the cancelations:

“Carnival Vista has been experiencing an issue affecting its maximum cruising speed. Unfortunately, we will be unable to operate the above voyages, as it is necessary to remove the ship from service to complete the required repairs.”

Guests who were scheduled to sail on the July 6, 13, and 20 sailings will receive a full refund, a 100% future cruise credit for a cruise at a later date, and up to $200 per person in airfare changes.

Carnival Vista is currently in a floating dry dock in the Bahamas being repaired.

A third cruise line, Disney Cruise Line, also had a cruise ship issue with a ship’s propulsion this week although they did not have to cancel any cruises.  The seven night sailing on Disney Fantasy had to be slightly modified so repairs could be made to the vessel.

One port stop ended up being canceled (Falmouth, Jamaica) and Disney gave all passengers $200 in onboard credit and a 20% discount on a future cruise.
