Default Norwegian Jewel 12/5 Delayed Embarkation

Dear Guests,
We just issued the information regarding Norwegian Jewel (see below). We apologize if your agent did not yet have the updated information at the time you called. All agents should be aware at this point and it is on our web site: www.ncl.com.

I've pasted all the information below.

We are truly sorry about this delay and appreciate your understanding.

Best,
Norwegian Cruise Line

Attention Guests on Norwegian Jewel's 12/5 Sailing from New York:
Because of a late departure from dry dock, Norwegian Jewel will not arrive into New York on Sunday, December 5 as scheduled. The ship is now estimated to arrive into New York on Monday morning.

Therefore, embarkation for guests sailing on Norwegian Jewel’s December 5 Bahamas & Florida cruise is delayed and will begin at 8 am on Monday, December 6. The ship is scheduled to depart New York at noon on Monday.

Norwegian Jewel’s itinerary has been changed to accommodate the new departure time. The ship will now call in Port Canaveral, Florida on Wednesday, December 8 from 8 am to 8 pm and in Nassau, Bahamas on Thursday, December 9 from noon to 1 am.

Guests will receive a refund of 1/7 of the cruise fare paid and an onboard credit of $100 per stateroom.

Norwegian Cruise Line sincerely apologizes for this delay. We appreciate our guests understanding and cooperation.

What about a hotel stay for every guest? They now have to fork over extra cash because most are coming in a day early!

I agree. While not required, it would certainly be a gesture of goodwill, as NCL has to be aware that a lot of folks will be flying in for a Sunday departure as scheduled and will now be forced to find accommodation in NYC, which isn't cheap.

Although we don't have the confirmation email yet, our TA talked to NCL and the rep said we can get a full refund and/or re-book on a future cruise in lieu of taking the shortened cruise. Waiting for confirmation.....

I wouldn't be too upset over missing the stop at GSC. I enjoyed it, but a lot of people find the tendering over to be a pain, the beach crowded. But if I were flying into NY to take this cruise, I'd be furious and be demanding that NCL in addition pick up the tab for the extra night in a hotel in NYC - that's expensive.

I hope everyone realises that embarkation starts at 8 AM on Monday for a noon departure....


Therefore, embarkation for guests sailing on Norwegian Jewel’s December 5 Bahamas & Florida cruise is delayed and will begin at 8 am on Monday, December 6. The ship is scheduled to depart New York at noon on Monday.

Default "System Is Down" for hours (Yeah RIGHT)

Thanks NCL for ruining my birthday (Dec. 5).....
Our 6th cruise on NCL & when you call their "System is down"...How convenient....We loved The Dawn...had a terrible time on The Gem (their fault) & now this....They told me they will have "travel care consultants" there on Monday..I said "I hope to get info. BEFORE Monday!"....
Wonder if the boat will even get to NY by Monday....
We stay loyal to NCL but we keep hearing how other lines treat their guests way better...1/7 of your cruise fare is no compensation for the lost time & lost destination....
