Norwegian Cruise Line has canceled a 10-day Norwegian Jade cruise
that departed Miami on Nov. 16 because of a mechanical issue.
The ship is in San Juan, where it will disembark passengers
on Tuesday, Nov. 20.
It had been scheduled to depart San Juan on Sunday night for
St. Thomas on a cruise that was to include St. Kitts, Barbados, St.
Lucia and St. Maarten.
After disembarking passengers, the Jade will sail back to
Miami for repairs.
A Norwegian spokeswoman said the line is working to fly
guests back to Miami and to points beyond, helping to modify travel
arrangements to their final destinations.
Norwegian said guests will get a full refund of the fare for
the abbreviated cruise and a 100% credit toward a future cruise.
"We are very sorry for the inconvenience and
disappointment this unexpected situation has caused," a statement said.
