So we did our best to enjoy - a task made somewhat easier by the $400 ship credit. We particularly loved Progresso - an off the beaten path slice of real Mexico.
I am compelled to consider a different carrier next cruise. We far preferred Carnival for the money.
You got a $400 total onboard credit and are still upset? As for cover-up, NCL learned it's lesson. The present propulsion problems with the Star has a direct link on NCL's homepage.
The diesel manufacture had workers aboard the Dream for two months before they finished the repairs. Since the repairs were completed in November, that means the vendor's workers were aboard in September. Can you blame NCL feeling the repairs may have been finished sooner?
Unlike the Star's problems, which require a drydock to finish, and a fixed date when the repairs should be finished, the Dream's problems were repaired without a drydock without a fixed date. It's just that the repairs on the Dream dragged on for what seemed like forever.
And although NCL has posted the Star's problems on its homepage, NCL still has many unsatisifed customers posting on every cruise website from the two cruises that had to be cancelled for the drydock, and from four months of cruises with a changed itinerary.
It just goes to show that it's impossible to please everybody.
