What are you looking at?When I went to book my cruise for 2007, it showed a 5 day. This is really confusing since their brochure, and online both show the schedual you have in your message.
According to this NCL web page:
7-Day Western Caribbean, New Orleans round-trip
2006: Nov 12, 19, 26; Dec 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
2007: Jan 7, 14, 21, 28; Feb 4, 11, 18, 25; Mar 4, 11, 18, 25; Apr 1, 8
I don't see any 5 day cruises planned next year.
So is it wise to NOT book a cruise on NCL out of New Orleans right now then?NCL is firmly planning on operating the Sun from New Orleans after she returns from her Alaska season. I'm booked for early December, and NCL is making many New Orleans plans and bookings for the ex-UK pax who are all on packages which include air travel and pre-cruise hotel stays in New Orleans.
This morning I booked an AB cabin on the Sun for Jan 28th 2007.This is the cruise we were considering, but I'm not sure if I'm able to handle the nerves that would go along with it (as far as not knowing what will happen in NO between now and then). I spoke to my TA yesterday and she said that it's safe to book it. She said to just not book airfare or hotel until closer to the sail date.
These just hope the Hurricane season spares New Orleans this year.
I spoke to my TA yesterday and she said that it's safe to book it. She said to just not book airfare or hotel until closer to the sail date.(There's no reason why you shouldn't book a hotel now. Many (probably most) hotel bookings are cancellable without penalty - just make sure you know what the deadline is.
I'd pay good money to see Sun sail out of Birmingham seeing as it's 250 miles inland. Mobile maybe. Houston probably.LOL please excuse my 'blonde moment'. Thinking Mobile, typing Birmingham.
