Due to a mechanical issue (affecting the ship's max cruising speed), the 7-day Greek Isles cruise (itinerary Nov 3-10, roundtrip from Venice Italy) aboard the NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line's ship Norwegian Star was significantly changed.

Three ports were canceled (Kotor, Santorini, Mykonos) and Split (Croatia) was added to the planned visits to Montenegro (Kotor, Nov 4), Corfu Island, Santorini Island (Nov 6), Mykonos Island (Nov 7), Kefalonia Island, and Dubrovnik (Croatia).

All passengers were notified about the itinerary changes in the early morning on November 3 ~12 hours prior the scheduled departure at 5:30 pm). As compensation, NCL offered USD 200 in OBC (per cabin) and plus 20% future NCL cruise booking discount.
