June 21 - Epic delayed into Southampton

Well just to add a little stress another late bump in the road to this cruise.

I got an IM from Joerg and Petra onboard the Epic in Rotterdam that they were notified the Epic will be late getting to Southampton. Found this article online.


NORWEGIAN EPIC, the £128m super cruise ship, has been delayed due to major engine trouble.

The 19 deck ship was due to arrive at 10am tomorrow, but will now sail into Southampton at 5.30pm.

Thousands of passengers are booked onto the first cruise from Rotterdam to Southampton and have been offered full refunds if they wish to leave the ship before she sails.

There goes the Latitudes Lunch on the 22nd. Lets just hope it does not impact the transatlantic. Is it too early for a martini.

The problems, NCL confirmed, are due to technical difficulties with the propeller shaft.

  1. Sorry for delay. Better now then in the Atlantic. Hopefully they have it repaired in a few hours. Enjoy your trips. Will you post pics here or at least provide a link here. Thank you.
