Norwegian Star cancels Burnie visit

Burnie’s fifteenth cruise ship of the season, Norwegian Star, has been forced to cancel its scheduled visit to Burnie on Thursday 9 February due to mechanical issues.

Burnie City Council Mayor Anita Dow said, “Council has been advised that the Norwegian Star has had to alter its current and future itineraries due to mechanical issues which has affected the speed of the vessel.”

“This would have been the Norwegian Star’s maiden visit to Burnie, and it is unfortunate that we won’t be seeing her this season.”

The cruise liner will also forego stops in Milford Sound and Napier.

Burnie’s next cruise ship, Silver Whisper, will arrive on Wednesday 8 February 2017.
