Norwegian Cruise Line has been forced to cancel a cruise due to a propulsion issue with the Norwegian Star.

There has been an issue with the Norwegian Stars ABB Azipods propulsion system and as a result the cruise line has been forced to cancel an upcoming cruise. To fix the problem the voyage which was scheduled to depart Los Angeles, California on April 12th has been cancelled. The 15-night cruise was set to sail through the Panama Canal and now guests booked for that cruise will miss the chance.

The Norwegian Star’s propulsion issue will keep the 91,740 gross ton cruise ship out of action until 26th April. The vessel will then depart from Miami, Florida on April 27th. NCL are giving passengers booked on the cancelled voyage a 1005 refund and 50% off on a future cruise.

Norwegian Star recently underwent a major drydock in Portland, Oregon. Improvements were also made to the Azipod system during this time so it has come as a surprise.
