6 Grand Cruise Flop

Furious cruise ship passengers demanded to be let off a ship after several docking destinations were changed, food went stale and the sewage system stopped working.

Around 2,500 travellers onboard the Norwegian Spirit were furious when scheduled stops at Le Havre, Amsterdam and Iceland were switched because of rough seas.

The tourists, who paid £6,000 for the trip, did manage to get to Norway but were only able to view the famous fjords from a distance.

Things got even worse on the ‘mystical fjords’ tour when a stop in Reykjavik, Iceland, was changed to former shipyard Greenock, in Scotland on Monday and then onto Belfast.

A video showed outraged passengers chanting ‘get us off this ship’ and demanding to be taken back to London while onboard the 900ft-long vessel, which started its journey in Southampton on September 27.

A passenger set up a Twitter account called NCLHELL to detail what happened during the trip.

They posted several pictures from the vessel showing angry passengers and broken toilets.

Staff were also accused of shutting off the internet so passengers could not post videos they had filmed.

Hundreds of passengers decided to organise their own trips back to London when they stopped in Ireland totally fed up.
