Default FYI: Pride of Aloha to take over Pride Of America

just was looking on NCL's site... they are saying that the Pride of Aloha
will
take over Pride of America's routes until repairs complete. Sorry if this

Default FYI: Pride of Aloha to take over Pride Of America

I buddy of mine is booked on that now sunk ship. He is scheduled to sail
in July. NCL is now going to rebook him and his wife on the refitted (as
in old refurb) ship Pride of Aloha. I am wondering if NCL will
compensate the cruisers for placing them on a refurb ship instead of
what they expected to be a brand new ship. Sort of like giving a
customer a reconditioned used car instead of their brand new car that
got smashed in transit and expecting the same money for it. At least he
will have a ship to be on. It seems to me, NCL should offer these people
some kind of on ship credit or return some of their money as
compensation for not getting what they payed for.

I think I've read it all now. Sheesh, it's not like the Norwegian Sky
is/was a garbage scowl. To ask for compensation because you will be
sailing on an older "refurbished" ship is absolutely ridiculous.

Norwegian Sky is hardly an old tub. She was brand new in the fall of 1999 and
quite stylish. After her refurbishment she should be even more stunning.

While I quite agree the Sky is not a "old tub"....I know some pax will be
disappointed in not sailing the Pride. I am one of them...my brother was
going to get married on the ship in August. We will probably stick with the
Sky, but there is some disappointment in the fact it won't be the Pride. I
also don't expect NCL to comp me for anything...this is quite beyond their
control.

It is not an old ship but if they are not satisfied with the change
they an cancel now and get a full refund since the cruise is not until
July.

This excerpt from the statement on NCL's website seems to indicate that they'll
do everything possible to make amends for the situation:

"The previously published itinerary of Pride of Aloha will be cancelled and
booked passengers will receive an attractive offer to move to the Pride of
Aloha's new schedule. When the new delivery date of Pride of America is known,
NCL will announce the combined deployment of the two NCL America ships.

Norwegian Sky passengers booked in Alaska will be similarly accommodated with
full details available next week."

The full statement is at http://ncl.com/news/prideofamerica_011603.htm
