Norwegian Cruise Line confirms that a crane accident in a Boston shipyard yesterday delayed the final repairs on the Norwegian Jewel.  The ship will arrive in New York today for its next scheduled cruise (one day later than planned), and NCL will cut this voyage one day short (six nights, not seven), calling in Port Canaveral Wednesday and Great Stirrup Cay Thursday. Passengers will receive a $100 onboard credit per cabin and a refund of one-seventh of the cruise fare paid.

Prior to seeing the announcement this morning, I was watching The Today Show, and a couple in the crowd told Al Roker that they were supposed to be in the Caribbean.  They went on to explain that their “ship is in drydock or something” and so they’re stuck in New York. 

First of all, personally I think getting to visit The Today Show in person and meeting Al Roker is a plus for anyone!  Al Roker playfully asked what cruise line they were sailing with, then good-naturedly called out for NCL to take care of these folks and get them on a cruise. 

The Norwegian Jewel is scheduled to depart New York on this delay cruise today, and we hope everyone has a great time.  On the heels of the Carnival Splendor’s recent woes, I hope press coverage such as this won’t cause travelers to hesitate about enjoying all that cruise vacations have to offer.
