NCL's letter to travel agents reads:

“In order for the ship to enter the United States and meet all necessary requirements and inspections mandated by the United States Coast Guard, Customs and Border Patrol, and the Department of Health and Human Services, the above itinerary has been changed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note that you must remain on board during the ship's layover in Miami and cannot disembark until December 22, 2021. Therefore, all reservations will receive a $150 shipboard credit, which will be reflected in your shipboard account as $75 for the first and second guest in the stateroom. This credit will be automatically posted to your onboard account.”
