Norwegian Breakaway Departing A Day Early

September 21, 2017

Norwegian Cruise Line said that the Norwegian Breakaway will be departing Bermuda a day early this week to avoid the path of hurricanes in the Atlantic.

The announcement on the cruise line’s website said, “At Norwegian Cruise Line, the safety and security of our guests and crew is of the utmost importance.

“The company is closely watching Hurricanes Maria and Jose in the Atlantic, and will be slightly modifying the itinerary for Norwegian Breakaway, to ensure that our guests have the best vacation experience possible.

“To avoid the storm’s path, Norwegian Breakaway will sail a longer route back to New York for her cruise that departed on Sunday, September 17.

“Norwegian Breakaway will now spend two days in port in Bermuda and depart a day early at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 21 and will arrive back in New York on Sunday, September 24, as scheduled.

“We are saddened by the devastating impact Hurricane Irma has had on several islands in the Eastern Caribbean, ports that we have called on since the start of our 50 years in business.

“We are working with our partners on the ground to provide assistance to ensure these spectacular destinations are up and running and ready to welcome guests again very soon. ”

  1. Comfortably numb says:

    Cynics might suggest that Norwegian will benefit greatly from this change in schedule: an extra day’s revenue from the casino, bars and stores and, presumably, fuel savings as the ship travels at a slower speed back to New York. Not sure of their logic either as the ship will be back in New York with Maria still south of Bermuda. I spoke to several passengers today: none are happy.

  2. Truth says:

    Yup, a rip off for the passengers. Definately. Safety my butt, they will be losing a whole day in BDA and they are not happy.

  3. Luz says:

    They waited till today to release information I tried to get information from them for three days my daughter is on that ship and I have not heard from her since the ship left my other daughter was in Bermuda and kept informing me that she never met up with her so I will not know till tomorrow what happens and how come she was not able to meet up with her sister, this is one cruise line that will never get my money again

  4. Truth is says:

    We would have been further away from the remains of Hurricane Jose if we had left as scheduled. Hurricane Maria was never an issue.
    A full extra day of spending on board at shops, casinos restaurants, bars and spa for NCL instead of money spent on Bermuda.
    If the rumors are true, a bonus for fuel saving for the captain for a slow crawl back to port after a long route with large waves to Bermuda.
    Shame on NCL and the captain to put profit ahead of customer service.
