A HAL spokeswoman told Seatrade Insider specifics on the exact problem and where repairs would take place were still being assessed. It has not been determined if a drydock is needed.
Passengers will receive a full refund of their cruise fare and a future cruise credit of 100% of the fare paid. The line also assisted passengers with travel arrangements home.
