  1. Orlando news just said RCCL has canceled next 3 cruises. WESH news. Here in Orlando
  2. We are looking into a tour with Norway Excursions AS for Geiranger. Anyone have any experience with them, good or bad? Any recommendations for other tour companies in Geiranger or Bergen? Thanks in advance
  3. Where do we get off train and then how do we find hotel TIA
  4. Can you please provide advise how how to get from Gatwick to Holiday Inn Hotel Kensington, London W8 5S. Should we rake a train or airport shopping title. We also need instructions how to get to Southampton on a Saturday . How would we pick up the bus you discussed from our hotel Thanks in advance
  5. Can you please clarify, which of the two tours did you like better" Golden Circle of South Coast? I'd love to see the Northern Lights but was told the time of year that we are going no guarantees to see them. Looking for maybe something to do or see when we arrive at 6pm.
  6. Yes, when I call NCL they tell me docking time is at 8am. Which leads me to believe the agents at NCL are only providing info that NCL provides to them which appears to be incorrect.Not very reassuring . This will probably be my first and last NCL cruise.I'll go back to RCCL ,Celebrity, Disney, Carnival or Princess who appears to be more reliable, when it comes to providing information on their Itineraries.After almost 60 cruises we are interested in the itineraries so we can visit new places. We only booked this cruise because we had two full days in Iceland. Now we we only have one full day in Iceland but we'll make the best of it. I have not received an Itinerary change, only the people who booked prior to December received the change letter. My TA hasn't received any notification of the change either.
  7. We booked in December , after some of you received the changed in itinerary letter from NCL. The itinerary showed two full days in Iceland , as it still does on NCL we stem, which is very misleading since 2 days in Iceland was the main reason we booked this cruise. I have not received a letter with any changes .We already have a non refundable airfare booked so we are committed to this cruise and will make the best of it. I spoke to my TA today, they called NCL and the supervisor at the "Big Box TA spoke with a NCL supervisor and confirmed arrival is to be at 6pm on 9/8. Our TA was very apologetic and said they are following up to make sure NCL changes their web page. and told me they don't like to sell cruises that are misleading and have the wrong itineraries. They were clearly not happy with NCl. They have not received any written notice from NCL about the itinerary change. We’re new to NCL and not impressed with such a big discrepancy in the port arrival time . We are seasoned cruisers, 50 + cruises and never had anything like this happen on another cruse line . NCL is not making a good first impression. Hopefully, there won't be any more unforeseen changes on the cruise.
  8. Is it better to purchase HOHO tickets in advance or wait until you are in port. I'm afraid to buy in advance in the unlikely event of a port being cancelled. Thanks
  9. For those traveling to Europe, do you usually purchase Hop On Hop Off tickets in advance or when you get to the port? Thanks
  10. Thanks for the info. Is there a hotel you'd recommend near the Atlantic Dry cleaners.We currently are booked at the Holiday Inn near the cruise . Are we better off there, or at one near the laundry? T Hanks,
  11. I'm new to NCl so please excuse if this has been asked before. We are schedule to dock on the return at Sunday 5 am. we have a 1 pm flight out of Gatwick. Are we safe to book the NCL transfer to Gatwick or should we book a private transfer to make sure we arrive in plenty of time to make our flight. NCL says you need to allow 6.5 hours from time of docking to make a flight at Gatwick, I've also read the shuttle doesn't leave until it's full, which could be 9 am. Thanks

  13. We will be in Barcelona on a cruise from 8am to 8 pm. How did it work out for you taking a taxi to Sagrada Familia and then purchasing the HOHO tickets. I want to see as much of Antoni Gaud that I can and the rest of Barcelona. Do you know which route is best to see the architecture. Did you have time to take the other route as well? Any other tipes and suggestions are appreciated.
  14. I am new to NCL. If I book an excursion with NCL and then decide to cancel, how is the refund/ Cancellation handled. Thanks
