    Sun 4 day Cuba cancelled/changed

    Have fun dealing with NCL. You should read what those of us went through (and some are still going through) on the October 1 , 2018 cruise that they cancelled.

    NCL cancels pearl sailing oct 1

    I think I have to agree with the poster that maybe going to the media might resolve this. It is just so ludicrous that people haven't gotten their deposits back and folks are being asked to prove they changed their flights. What if you have no idea where you want to go yet. And if you bought one of those non-refundable, non-change airline tickets than they need to step up to the plate and just refund those tickets. MSC Cruiseline will match your status with other cruiselines. I just did that yesterday. I haven't cruised on them but a travel agent friend absolutely loves them.

    You have got to be kidding me. What kind of letter is that. You are one of the few guests inconvenienced by this. Is the man clueless. And Option 1 would have been done by a lot of us if it had really existed. This whole thing is getting more bizarre as time goes on. Now suddenly the Pearl is going out of Seattle to Alaska. Kind of like "oh oops the charter or what ever fell through". That letter just absolutely infuriates me. And I haven't been as impacted as the rest of you. After my temper cools down I may just send an email to him and ask him what he was thinking.

    I knew you were. I had booked my hotel since it had already gone up by $100 from the time I first started checking but that was a quick hit the cancel button. I never opt of those non-refundable rates or booking with an online service that requires full payment. Was so close to booking air the week before because a great deal came up and then poof - right in the middle of selecting flights my PC died. So decided to wait.

    I was interested in the 9 night replacement as was the friend traveling with me but then that option never materialized. No information on it - nothing. So I have had to cancel completely. Poor planning on the part of NCL in listing something that doesn't exist as Option 1. Since the initial email from NCL there has been no further communication. That is hard for folks to absorb. The call center folks don't have answers and that makes it hard on them because they then have to deal with angry customers.

    The 9 day is no longer an option. Corporate alerted their agents of this early AM. Holland America has some 4 and 5 night cruises going out of Vancouver between September 25th and October 17th.

    10/8/2018 10 night Canada cruise on Gem missing?

    Holland America has some 4 and 5 night cruises going out of Vancouver from September 25 till October 17. Might be able to change the dates for your flights.

    We have a thread over on the Pearl Roll Call. Quite a few of us are impacted by this. One of the folks on this cruise just posted that the 9 day itinerary doesn't exist now according to NCL.

    NCL Fall 2018 Itinerary Changes

    I'm with Linda on the 10/1 Pearl trip. I got the generic email and set on hold for an hour only to be told by three different reps that they had no clue on the 9 day itinerary. I am a travel agent and this was my first heads up of any changes. NO previous emails from NCL that they were looking at making any changes to possible itineraries. Very frustrating for so many folks - including the reps who are obviously in the dark and dealing with frustrated customers and TAs.

    Gluten free dining in specialty restaurants.

    When I have taken a tour of several of NCL ships the galley is amazing. They have a section that is not used unless they are cooking gluten free or kosher. Let them know that you need gluten free ahead of time. When I have they have always worked with me in all areas. Even when I didn't they still helped with options that were great. Now I will say the Pride of America had some of the best gluten free dinner rolls that I have ever had.
  12. According to the Southwest website they will open booking through June 1, 2018 on August 28th. Check a day or so before because sometimes they will push the date up. I wasn't able to find anything on JetBlue's site.

    Getting to NOLA cruise port?

    I believe the cab from the NCL port to Hotel Monteleon was $8 a person when my sister and I got back from a cruise. I definitely wouldn't try to walk it with luggage.

    NCL SUN suite 9292

    I was in cabin 10065 and we had just a small 4 cup coffee maker. That was back in late 2014 so things may have changed. I looked on Cruisedeckplans and 9202 shows the little coffee maker but I don't know when the photo was taken.

    STreetcar to NCL in NOLA?

    Thanks loanshark. That would be a piece of cake walk. Loved going through the mall last time I was there. I have walked from the Drury Inn to the French Quarter and from there to Harrah's and loved it. But my sister - well - this may be an interesting trip to say the least.:confused:
