Guests on Norwegian Jade spent a little extra shore time in San Juan this weekend when mechanical issues forced the ship to stay overnight.

Passengers were offered flights home or up to $650 to cover airline change fees, and “Norwegian Cruise Line will refund your cruise as well as extend credit for a future cruise based on the cruise fare paid,” passengers were told.

Jade was on the third day of a 10-night round-trip cruise out of Miami, sailing to St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Barbados, St. Lucia and St. Maarten. Its next scheduled sailing is an 11-night Panama Canal cruise departing Miami on Nov. 26.
