Norwegian Cruise Line cancels all Asia sailings
Norwegian Cruise Line has canceled all sailings in Asia on Norwegian Spirit from April 15 through December 7, 2020.
"We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes," the cruise line said in a message to travel agents and affected passengers. "Please be advised that a full refund will be processed automatically to the form of payment provided at the time of booking."
There was not immediate information available on where the ship would sail in place of its Asia program.
Norwegian is offering a full refund of cruise fares paid, along with a future cruise credit worth 10 percent as compensation for new cruises booked in the next 45 days.
The line will also cover up to $300 per person in airfare change fees.
Norwegian is allowing passengers to remain onboard the affected sailing and have 50 percent of their cruise fare credited back. It is also offering those who want to cancel a full refund if done so by February 14, 2020.
Norwegian Spirit is currently in drydock in Marseille undergoing a massive refurbishment to the tune of $100 million US that will completely transform the ship’s staterooms and public spaces.
