Monday afteernoon, each person was given a $200. credit in the gift shop, which for me purchased one pair of pants $95.00, one pair of sox, a "box of thong underwear" (which is all they had), a dress shirt and a casual shirt. I will never forget the lady standing next to me, holding a $95.00 bathing suit and realizing it was that or clothes to have dinner in, she couldn't get bolth, she began to cry. It was her 35 anniversary cruise, and it was our 10th. This was our "trip of a lifetime, in the Courtyard"
NCL did offer to and did our laundry in a 3.5 hour turnaround, which we appreciated, and did send up a couple of dive-in shirts, but they were medium, and most us havent seen medium in a long time. NO other compensation "will be given" was their line.
WE are Platinum members, we have never had a problem before, but the front desk person I spoke with (I did not give her name to upper Management) said "it happens quite a bit whenever we have two or more ships in dock the same day, just not usually to this extent". We werent looking for thousands of $ in compensation, just enough clothes to work with for a few days. We missed our dinner at Cagny's, the clothes we had presssed for the "formal" photos, and just felt unconfortable in ill fitting clothes. We cannot get those evenings back. The kicker is they had a storewide 20% off sale on everything the next day, I inquired If they could extended the discount from the previous day, and maybe get a bathing suit or belt or more sox, and got quite a flat no. a So please carry on whatever you can, we made the mistake of not carrying more on and thinking that they really cared.
