|22 November 2016||Propulsion / Power Loss|
On November 22, 2016, the shipowner French America Line announced the cancellation of the riverboat's all cruise itineraries scheduled for November and December. During this period, the ship entered into drydock as it needed urgent mechanical repairs.
The company announced that the repairs require newly fabricated parts, which can't be delivered sooner. During the December drydock (at Bollinger Shipyards in Lockport LA), the vessel received some of the upgrades originally planned for the January 2017 refurbishment (project cost USD 5 million).
All customers booked on the cancelled voyages were fully refunded, with optional re-booking on another 2017 itinerary. All customers with purchased airfare were reimbursed for flight change fees.
