The ship was reported to have stopped in a dilapidated Norwegian town, which was not open to the public, before heading to Reykjavik, Iceland. But the stop was cancelled, and they continued their voyage to Greenock, near Glasgow, for a temporary visit. But the cruise ship was refused to stop at Grinnock on October 7, so the captain changed course and headed for Belfast. Passengers had been stranded on board for three days, claiming that the restaurants on board were full of stale food, and held demonstrations in the cruise vessels grand atrium, shouting slogans such as You are shameful, Lets get off the ship and We want a refund.
Passengers staged a massive protest on board the ship.
There are a lot of people on board who are angry because they dont know what happened, which led to this mornings riots, Deena Roland, 48, from Taunton, Devon, told the daily mail. It was a nightmare vacation, and now the toilets in many rooms are full of sewage. Its really not the luxury cruise I imagined.
A spokesman for the Norwegian cruise company told the Daily Mail: The Norwegian Spirit yacht was forced to cancel its trip to Greenock because of weather conditions and delays caused by technical failures on a departing naval vessel. The Norwegian Spirit refused to give its passengers a full refund, but instead offered them 25% vouchers.
