The Norwegian Star has been forced to make an itinerary alteration due to an azipod propulsion issue.

An azipod problem on the Norwegian Star has forced the ship to slightly alter the itinerary of its transatlantic voyage. The 91,740 gross ton vessel┬ámissed out on calling at Miami, Florida on October 17 and instead headed straight for Tampa where it arrived in the evening once the Carnival Paradise cleared the berth. Due to the evening arrival time passengers won’t be able to disembark until October 18.

At the moment the next voyage which is scheduled to depart Tampa on October 19 is going ahead. The NCL ship was sailing a transatlantic and northern europe cruise which departed Denmark on September 15. Cruise Hive has contacted Norwegian Cruise Line and will update once more details are known including the situation with the ship’s azipod issue.
