To the best of my knowledge the Dawn dropped off passengers who were on a Coz to Coz cruise that left December 6, but did not pick any up. So the Tampa situation today may not be the Tampa situation in January when they start the Virgin-sponsored cruises from Cozumel again.
Check replies to the "Live from the Dawn" thread where someone was told by NCL that there were no more cruises with pick-ups in Cozumel (incorrect) or the Virgin Cruise Holidays website. There is a posting in the "Live from" thread showing the schedule - the next Cozumel origination cruise is scheduled to start January10 or you can find the same information on the Virgin Holiday site.
Unfortunately, we won't know if the problems have been solved until at least January 12.
From what I understand no passengers were picked up in Cozumel this week. Could this be the difference? I am hoping the situation has been figured out, but I won't believe it until the next cruise that picks up passengers in Cozumel in a few weeks.That's my understanding as well.

But it does narrow the issue down to either this was actually caused by the 2nd pick up and drop off or that NCL finally worked things out with the powers that be. Either way hopefully between now and the next Cozumel pick up, NCL has worked out whatever issues that caused these delays in the first place.
