Norwegian Canceling Some Guests’ Bookings on Pride of America
Last month we reported that Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America was experiencing operational issues with staffing crew members. In turn, the ship was limiting occupancy.
Now, the line is canceling guests that were already booked on the sailing. A Cruise Radio listener emailed us and told us the line canceled his July sailing, and in turn offered a full refund, 100 percent future cruise credit, and up to $500 in airline change fees.
Pride of America sails year-round in Hawaii.
Norwegian is not alone with staffing issues as every major cruise line across the globe is VISA entry issues for its crew members.
MSC Cruises Completes Full Fleet Restart
Another cruise line is fully back into operation.
MSC Cruises’ last ship has reentered service, as MSC Musica set sail in the Mediterranean on Sunday.
Here in the United States, MSC has ships sailing from two Florida ports, PortMiami and Port Canaveral. In December, another MSC ship will join North America, as the company also adds sailings from New York City.
Last November, MSC Seashore debuted as Miami’s newest ship.
Musica was MSCs 19th and last cruise ship to return since the pandemic.
