The Norwegian Epic was originally on its way to the British Virgin Islands when it began to suffer from mechanical problems, prompting ship authorities to schedule a stop in Puerto Rico. While the ship was pulling into the Puerto Rican port it struck a pier, leaving a large gash in the ship.

As passengers disembarked from the ship in Florida they expressed their frustrations, saying that they had taken a “cruise to nowhere” and had never disembarked from the ship.

Norwegian says it will issue a credit to all passengers, good for a free future cruise. Many passengers expressed their disdain for the offer and complained that the company should do more.
