  1. Just received a call from a guy from this company informing me that they have been authorised to contact NCL customers on their behalf to sort issues regarding outstanding credit and FCC. I put the phone down on him explaining that it sounded like a scam to me. Almost immediately he redialled and when I didn’t answer he left a detailed message. In the message he indicated that the company is not a sca, and that they had been given all sorts of information such as outstanding Cruisenext vouchers and FCC. He also told me my wife and my own Latitiudes numbers and some future cruise plans. Mayb
  2. The Aegias Bowl on the outskirts of Southampton is a prime cricket venue. If they happen to be hosting a 20/20 cricket game it could be interesting if you’re a sports fan. Unfortunately, fixtures won’t be available until next year. Games last about 3 hours and are a lot quicker than you might have gathered from trad US attitudes to the game. It’s certainly more active than baseball in this short format of the game. Google T20 cricket if you want more of an idea.
  3. I’ve just set up two Roll Calls for cruises from London to Reykjavik and reverse for next June 2021. I was being so clever cutting and pasting stuff that I overlooked changing the date on the second board. I posted the title as “ 10-DAY ICELAND FROM REYKJAVIK TO LONDON: ENGLAND &IRELAND 6:06:2021” but the date should have read 17:06:2021. Couldn’t find any way of editing the error. Can you help? Thanks Steve
  4. Hi PhilBenz, you have my sympathies, friend. All I would say is this. My wife has immunity issues and we were due to go to China this week. We took the decision that we wouldn’t be going but didn’t declare it to our TA and sat tight hoping that events would overtake, as they did. That company, cruise.co.uk, cancelled the tour three days later with full refund, which included cancelling a RCI cruise which did not declare as much as a week after. Not so rapid response as some RCI fans would seem to have us believe. Folks were beside themselves with worry and all we could do was offer sympa
  5. Never fails to amaze me how swiftly the NCL oppo rush to champion their preferred line and batter NCL. Frankly it helps no one. If Norwegian’s approach to the Jade is as described here then I find their behaviour baffling. As an intended future cruiser to Japan aboard Norwegian Spirit I was disappointed but encouraged by the e-mail I found in my inbox explaining that our back to back cruises in October had been cancelled. On contacting NCL UK I learned that in addition to full refund of any fees paid, I would also receive goodwill gestures representing 10% of the cost of each cruise ag
  6. Hi cybergremlin, is that Manchester UK? If so are you flying with BA? We were going to fly with them returning Nov 6. Last week I got an e-mail telling me that our return flight was to be changed from Narita Airport to Haneda Airport. With everything that I had going on I didn’t get round to responding. Anyway when I phoned them this afternoon they said that because it was a schedule change and I hadn’t accepted it counted as a case for full refund! Does that help you? Incidentally, I got through at third time of asking. Rang the customer service team before lunch. Waited 20 minute
  7. Whoa hold the horses! A little bit of immaturity creeping in here. The biggest issue is how are NCL dealing with their customers. You don’t need to flick far through these boards to find plenty of “I’ll never cruise with this company again!” posts about NCL. So. Yes maybe it is a little premature, but at least it gives most people time to arrange alternatives, providing those customers have flexible vacation opportunities. I feel sorry for those folks who have taken this trip in fixed vacation time and find that their opportunities are very limited.
  8. Thanks rjhouseman, didn’t think about CR having Caribbean Sea coastline ( & I think I’m a geographer!). Have now reposted so please check Caribbean port of call boards
  9. We passed through Puntarenas in March this year as part of a South America Cruise repositioning from Santiago to Miami. As we’d visited Puntarenas before and done a 7 in 1 tour then we decided that we’d just hang around town and ship for the day. Not a good idea. However, on our way back to the ship early morning we were approached by someone saying that they were about to depart for San Jose but had 2 spaces in the van, did we want them. So as we’re doing the transit again in May just thought I’d ask whether anyone had experience of a San Jose excursion from Puntarenas? Did you use one at
