Right now there is a driving ban on all roads in Massachsetts (first ban like this since 1978) They say they will begin to bring flights into Logan this afternoon but the driving ban is on till at least late tonight. What they will do with all those people who will not be able to get out of the airport I have no idea. We hope to rebook our cruise sometime this week. Luckily work is not making either of us take this week off.
I don't mean this to sound like a statement it's a question with no sarcasm.the news was reporting this monster of a storm for a week before it hit why didn't you rework the travel arraignment .I told my wife the situation and her words to me where "my butt would be in my car Friday after work for a he'll of a long ride".I said ok but we leave Friday morning she said ok.

Not trying to rub it in but this is an excellent point. Several years ago we had a cruise out of FT L in Feb. I monitored the pending weather forecasts diligently and when the inevitable storm appeared I had time to make changes in our flights and accomadations prior to boarding. Yes, it cost us a few bucks but when you live in the Northeast and are dying to get out of the cold for a few days you do what you have to.

There's another storm on the horizon in Boston for next Saturday which is take-off day for us to get to the Pearl by Sunday in Miami--I've already picked out the all-inclusive I want to stay in while I wait for the ship in Jamaica! (Luckily I do have insurance--always have and never needed it until maybe now). If we have to be on the ship by 3 we'll never make it, according to possible flight schedules on our carrier. Maybe I'll check out other carriers and see if insurance will pay for those tickets to avoid a delay. Just thinking out loud...

I didn't have a problem at all waiting a few hours so people with weather issues wouldn't miss their cruise. We did rebook today. Jet Blue was awesome in taking care of rebooking.
Even if your air is through NCL, if you call the emergency air number you will find that they will not hold the ship for just a couple people, but will help you get to the next port.

Our first port was going to be in Roatan on Tuesday. That would have been tough to get to.
