Looks like they started dry dock at sea with a full load of passengers going through Panama Canal.

Attempted passenger mutiny

Got a piddly 25% off future cruise.

Bad on NCL it looks from article

The article has a facebook link to a group with 1200 members about this cruise with lots of photos.

Wow, a really bad story. If you read on down, NCL did ultimately give the passengers a full refund. Corporate sure had their heads up their a$$es on that one!!

Story says 100% credit for future cruise - NCL should give a 100% refund for cruise. I think it was on NBC news that I saw a story on this and it really was unbelievable. Whoever planned this "enhancement" while the ship was operating should be FIRED.

You're right, my bad, it said credit for a future cruise. Much different. And yes you're right, the egghead who decided to do this should be fired. I suspect what happened is that it was planned to be a drydock and something got screwed up with the schedule.

It's all about making the "bucks" even at the expense of their paying passengers!!

Time to put NCL on the "do not cruise" list!
