Passengers on voyages prior to the Panama Canal cruise have reported that the renovations started on their cruises. Work actually began in February! Many have indicated it wasn’t as extreme as what went on during the Panama Canal cruise, but it still sounds pretty bad. Who made the decision to do this work on a ship full of passengers?

We will be sharing their stories as well. For now, here is what a few of them had to say:

This mess began the week before the Panama cruise. I was on the western Caribbean Sun cruise. Stairways and doorways were blocked off. They were sanding and varnishing. Friends had black dust coming through their vents. I had a cough 1/2 way through the cruise till after I got home. My roommate had a problem with her asthma. The refurbishing was poorly planned. Have never experienced anything like this before and have since filed a complaint with NCL.

It started on our cruise in February. Part of Deck 6 was closed, as well as the uppermost deck. By the end of our cruise tables aft near the bar couldn’t be used because of debris. Our days with Norwegian are over.

The days at sea where very crowded with half of the upper deck closed to passengers. 4 rows deep with chairs and little to no room to walk.

Our family sailed on the NCL Sun for March Break 2018 out of Miami… (Bahamas, Jamaica, Mexico, Grand Cayman) for 7 days. As you all know: Construction for the entire week…. very loud jack hammering, bad smells in the cabin areas and lots and lost of dust. A whole side of the 2nd deck near the pool was ripped up and closed, so all the pool chairs were packed like sardines. Unacceptable.

It is unacceptable and hopefully all cruise lines will take note that passengers are not going to put up with this.
