I found a video clip on you tube of the Norway at the time of the boiler explosion.

you really need to google up the NTSB report on that incident. It details an amazing story of ignorance, malfeisance, stupidity, and perhaps a measure of deceit. After reading it you will have a hard time believing that any major shipping company could have rolled the dice and continued to operate her without major repairs (or even minor maintenance such as water treatment and maintaining boiler feet) in the face of so many emergent boiler issues. It's fascinating readng.

Absolutely appalling. Such reckless behavior by NCL. Mind you, they are not averse to flouting environmental regulations when disposing of ships, so no surprise I suppose. Certainly not a company that will ever get my pound.

After having sailed on 18 NCL cruises (7 times on NORWAY) I will NEVER step foot on another one of their vessels. They have proved to be at best, deceitful and outright Liars! I can only wonder what is in store for UNITED STATES... NCL is a total disgrace! The only sad thing for me is that I shall greatly miss "Freestyle" cruising...
