NCL's cruise ship Norwegian Joy cancels call to Cozumel (Mexico) due to propulsion issue

   March 19, 2022 ,   Accidents

NCL's liner Norwegian Joy had to cancel her stopover in the Mexican port of Cozumel on March 17 due to technical problems.

The NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line's vessel had to return to PortMiami (Florida USA) to undergo repairs.

The cause of the problem, according to NCL, was a malfunction in the propulsion system that affected the docking and undocking mechanism.

The repairs, if successful and completed on time, will allow Norwegian Joy to set sail on Saturday, March 19, to complete a new itinerary identical to the one she was unable to complete.

It is a 7-night roundtrip from PortMiami to Roatan Island, Mahogany Bay-Coxen Hole, Honduras; Harvest Caye Belize, NCL private island; Costa Maya, Quintana Roo Mexico, Riviera Maya; Cozumel, Quintana Roo Mexico, Riviera Maya.
