MIAMI -- The Norwegian Dream is operating on three engines after a broken crankshaft affected one engine.

A Norwegian Cruise Line spokeswoman said the March 22 Trans-Atlantic cruise was altered -- calls in Madeira, Spain, and Genoa, Italy, were canceled and a call in Gibraltar was added -- and the line offered a $50 per-person onboard credit.

A new crankshaft has been ordered, and the spokeswoman said the issue will not affect the Dream's next three Europe cruises but added NCL is "still assessing [the situation] beyond that."
