Norwegian Pearl sailings disrupted for repairs

Passengers on the current cruise will be getting a 50% refund and future cruise credit while those on the canceled July 5 voyage will get a full refund and 100% future cruise credit

Norwegian Pearl’s current European cruise was cut short and the July 5 voyage from Civitavecchia (Rome) was canceled due to a technical issue that’s impacting the ship’s speed.

Missed ports

On Monday, during a 13-day cruise from Amsterdam to the Mediterranean, the ship experienced a technical issue which required traveling at a reduced speed. Norwegian Pearl skipped its call at Palma, Majorca, and sailed to Barcelona, where further assessments determined immediate repairs were needed.

50% refund and future cruise credit

Passengers on the current sailing, which was scheduled to continue to Livorno and end at Civitavecchia, are getting a 50% refund and a 50% future cruise credit, both based on the original cruise fare paid. Norwegian Cruise Line is also covering up to $300 in flight change fees.

Full refund and 100% future cruise credit

Passengers booked on the July 5 ‘Greek Isles and Italy’ sailing will receive a 100% refund and a 100% future cruise credit, as well as up to $300 in flight change fees.

Norwegian Pearl just began its European season in June as one of six NCL ships sailing the region.

The 93,530gt Pearl was built in 2006 and extensively refurbished in 2017.
