  1. We have disembarked from NCL Sun today 31st March 18 and can confirm that these works commenced during our Panama Canal cruise #PCSun.
    Passenger decks were being ripped up and toxic resin floors laid right next to sun bathing passengers. This led to rispiratory problems!
    Chemicals used say Extremely toxic to aquatic life. Can cause genetic defects and damage unborn child etc.
    The muster stations on deck 6 were closed for several days at a time with wet resin floors.
    400 passengers met with the captain but he left the meeting saying his hands were chained and it was Corporate’s fault.
    We were told by customer services that the works were ‘instructed’ to just do it by Corporate office.

    • I can never understand these 3/4 day cruises they are nothing more than either a Ferry crossing or a booze cruise

    • Thanks Kevin!! I’m glad someone reminded folks that we who endured this 15 days of a floating dry-dock… before their dry dock are pretty angry about it!!
