Yes, I should've said I'm flying from the US. I'm not sure which airport yet. Baltimore, Philly, or Newark are my current choices. Heathrow has many more flights, and they are cheaper. Southampton is...

We were also on that cruise, and also did not agree with NCLs decision to not port. They could have at least cancelled free roaming and left people with guided excursions go. Thanks to the lost day...
