Norwegian Cruise Line has issued a statement saying that Norwegian Breakaway will be delayed arriving back in New York. The cruise ship was originally scheduled to arrive back in New York on Friday morning. The statement on NCL.com reads:
“Due to winter storm Grayson, Norwegian Breakaway will have a delayed arrival into New York on Friday, January 5. As a result, Norwegian Breakaway’s 14-day cruise that was originally scheduled to depart on January 5 will now depart on Saturday, January 6 at 3 pm. Due to the ship’s late arrival on Friday and the ongoing weather situation, embarking guests are encouraged to arrive to the pier on Saturday morning; all guests must be onboard by 1 pm on January 6. Guests unable to adjust their travel plans are welcome to board on Friday evening, between 6 pm and 10 pm.
The ship will now sail a slightly adjusted itinerary, which will be communicated to guests onboard. All guests will receive a refund of one day of their cruise fare, in the form of an onboard credit. We sincerely thank our guests for their understanding of this unexpected change due to the weather and apologize to our guests for any disruption to their schedule. Any further updates will be posted on NCL.com.”
Norwegian Breakaway is currently on a 7 night cruise to the Bahamas and Florida out of New York City with port stops in Port Canaveral, Nassau, and the cruise line’s private island Great Stirrup Cay.
The second cruise itinerary affected by the winter storm was Queen Mary 2. The ocean liner remained in New York for an extra day and has now set sail for Southampton.
Cruise Fever will continue to monitor cruise itineraries and will have all updates if any other cruises are impacted by Winter Storm Grayson.
