NCL’s Norway Cancels Additional Cruises
Norwegian Cruise Line has made it official: Norway's June 1 and June 8 sailings have been canceled. Those passengers slated to cruise on the June 1 voyage will receive a full refund and 50-percent off a future trip. Those on June 8 get a full refund and a certificate for 25 percent off their next NCL cruise.

As reported this weekend, S/S Norway suffered an explosion and fire in its boiler room on Sunday after returning from a weeklong Caribbean cruise. Four crew members died in the blast, which occurred while the ship was docked at the Port of Miami. 15 others were injured. No passengers were harmed by the explosion.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the explosion but says it may take up to a year to determine cause. The ship, originally launched in 1962, was very recently inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard, as part of a regular cycle of safety checks, and while the report has not yet been posted the ship had reportedly passed.

NCL already, of course, canceled this week’s Eastern Caribbean cruise, which had been slated to depart on Sunday.
