  1. PROVE THE NOROVIRUS OR STFU. And don't delete this post like you did the previous one where you couldn't prove it.
  2. I can also confirm that the compensation was quite good. A little long for the actual refund to appear, but they did say 7-10 business days and mine just came through today. The credits showed up last Friday. Considering the number of guests compensated, totally understandable on the turnaround time.
  3. I find it funny that nowhere have I seen anyone complain about being ill during this voyage. Can you show me the reference materials that you are consulting regarding your baseless claim of Norovirus?
  4. To the best of my knowledge, she's still in Barcelona. She went out on a test run last night, did a couple of loops and returned to port. I heard she got up to 23 knots...but I haven't confirmed that.
  5. We all can be depending on the situation 🙂 I just don't appreciate people trying to minimize other people's emotions. We're allowed to feel the way we feel. For some, this cruise was a honeymoon, or a long awaited bucket list item. For others, it may have been a run-of-the-mill vacation in the Mediterranean. Some people used up their entire year's worth of vacation time only to find out they now can't go. So saying "devastated"...yeah...I get it. No, it's not the same devastation as terminal cancer, but why does it have to be one or the other? We are complex beings with complex emotions
  6. No, it wasn't a direct response to you. It was just a general comment.
  7. Begin rant~ Why do people enjoy being argumentative? Not everyone deals with adversity in the same way. Some people may be comfortable searching last minute for accommodations (in a foreign country, out of their element/comfort zone) and making the best of a bad situation, while others may in fact be, yes, "devastated". Get over it. No need to be nasty or rude or comment on peoples actions/reactions and shame them for feeling the way they do. Let's just be kind, compassionate human beings and be good to each other. ~end rant.
  8. I don't know about the FB posts, but I CAN confirm that a full refund was applied, AND 100% future cruise certificate was given. In fact, I've already applied it to my upcoming cruise on the 21st. The coupon literally showed up in my account today (you have to call NCL to check/book). As far as the $300 goes, that's a claim that will need to be submitted after the cruise (at least that's my understanding).
  9. Unfortunately, nowhere. And I'm not being a jerk. I've been on the phone with NCL on and off for 3 days now. Nobody knows anything (or at least their not saying anything), and to try to talk to a supervisor can take over 20 minutes if you're lucky...or...none are available.
  10. I believe they're getting either a 50% refund or 50% of their fare applied to a future credit...can't remember which one. I think it's the refund.
  11. That's interesting. I had the exact same experience on the Spirit last summer. In addition to that, our cabin had this odor of raw sewage every day. We complained about it and after 3 attempts of fixing it, their solution was to pour deodorizer down our drain every day. That ship needs to be decommissioned! We weren't going to cruise with NCL again, but we had a credit with them that we needed to use.
  12. As I explained to you already, it was a comment that was made under anger and frustration. If you CHOOSE to take it as a complaint, so be it. No need to go back and forth. I have explained the intent of my OP; let's put it to bed. Thank you for your well wishes.
  13. AS the OP here, that was NOT my major complaint. In fact, the OP was not a complaint. It was a notification to other cruisers followed by an editorial comment if you will as I was rather upset, angry, and frustrated. Thank you for assuming that my OP was a complaint. Enjoy your day.
  14. And let's not forget about budget. Some travelers may have very little room left on their credit cards after booking this trip. It could take up to 7 days for the refund to occur.
  15. Forgive me for using a period instead of a question mark. I thought that by saying "how big is...." implied the question. My apologies if that was unclear.
