    We have 2 hours between flights. We also plan on taking carry on. My husband thinks we will be ok but I’m just not sure.


     Any sort of delay, you could miss the ship. I would be way to nervous to fly in the day of.


    And if you miss the ship and don't have travel insurance, don't expect a refund either.

    No, you don’t but you do need to call, cannot do it online. As long as they are your children, they can be across the hall or next door. You can get an extra key to their cabin. 



    Norwegian has these requirements. I know you can switch rooms at time of boarding and get keys etc but technically you have to book an adult in the cabin. So it had to be adjoining, you can't book down the hall







  3. We had a Pullman for our cruise and my then, 11 year old used. So much easier to have him sleep on that and have the sofa free so we could sit down etc while he was in bed. There was a railing on the side to not fall out.

    We are well aware we may have had the same situation with another cruise line, but that doesn't make this right.  We also had trip insurance, but if you check the policy it does not cover this situation.  We understood that having read the policy.


    The whole point is that Norwegian sent us a notice that they will reimburse us for 2 of the 7 days of cruise fare because they were unable to provide the service for those 2 days.  They did not state in their letter any requirements to receive the refund, such as having to arrive in a hurricane and several days later.



    No but instead of just being a NO -Show you should have called them to say you weren't coming at all.

    I would personally NEVER book to arrive the same day as embarkation.  Too risky, especially during the winter.  IF everything goes EXACTLY as planned you will be probably OK.  One glitch along the way, any sort of delay, you will be missing the ship.



    Flying from Toronto in March.........yeah, no way I am taking a same day flight, It would make me too nervous.

    Are you serious?! The reason I cruise is because I DONT FLY! I have family all the way in Cali, NY, Boston, Australia and I only stick to Caribbean cruises to avoid flying. I didn’t go with my husband and kids on a Cali vacation because of the flight. I STAYED BEHIND. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever see myself in a flight from PR to Miami. It’s why I cruise... no flights involved. Regardless... I’m alive and my family is alive and well and on ground. I’m making the most of it now. All my complaint is about the short notice... lack of communication by NCL, I wasn’t able to get my cruise photos and crappy airline.... but all in all I’m thankful that we got here in one piece. I’m a platinum with NCL... I’m loyal.... but things could have been communicated a lot more smoothly ESPECIALLY when traveling with kids. 



    I think its because the only way to get back to Miami in an emergency from a Caribbean is pretty much flying. You took the chance and gambled. I get it, you don't think something like that will happen until it does though.

    DH is the same way. We put all of our travel docs, including our passports, in one big manila envelope which he makes me check EVERY SINGLE TIME we stop for gas or bathroom or to eat and again in the morning before we leave to go to the terminal (we usually drive down the day before). And then again when we park the car before we get all our luggage


    This is me. I am constantly checking my documents. I also brought copies of our passports with me and packed then in our carry one's. I checked when we got in the car, out of the car, at the terminal, etc. I do this flying too. Just paranoid I would be stuck somewhere without it. Even at 3am leaving, its like the only thing I think about. LOL
