Vessel reduced speed after technical issue experience
Passenger (cruise) Norwegian Pearl (93530 gt, built 2006), while sailing on a 13-day cruise from Northern Europe to the Mediterranean, experienced a technical issue, which necessitated it to travel at a reduced speed, on Jul 1. The vessel did not call on Palma, Majorca, but instead sailed directly to Barcelona, Spain, where further assessments were made. Due to the need to make necessary repair works, the vessel will be ending the current sailing in Barcelona as well as cancelling the voyage scheduled on Jul 5. Guests who booked the sailing on Jul 5, will receive a 100% refund and a 100% future cruise credit, both on the original cruise fare paid and will also be covered up to $300 in flight change fees.
