Norwegian Escape Repositioning Cruise?

Recommended Posts

Norwegian Escape returns to New York from its final Bermuda cruise on Nov 20. It begins sailing out of Miami on Nov 23. Would there be a repositioning cruise from New York to Miami?

I can't find anything on NCL website.

A foreign-flagged cruise ship such as Escape can't do a legal repositioning cruise from NY to Miami in three days, so the ship will not be carrying passengers between NY and Miami.

 

This type of repositioning cruise requires a call at a distant foreign port, but the nearest distant foreign ports to the east coast are the ABC islands...Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, and it takes three days just to get to one of these islands from NY. As a result a minimum of 5 to 6 days would be required to do a repositioning cruise from NY to Miami...3 days from NY to one of the ABCs and then 2 to 3 days from the ABCs to Miami.

it is VERY VERY common for the ships to sail empty with passengers between NY and Miami. It usually takes about 2 full sea days for the ship to reposition.It provides the crew a break and allows maintenance to get some work done
