I've been following this post as we try to determine if we should give control of our air itinerary over to NCL. We'll be flying Seattle to Venice next June.At this point we're going for it, flying in two days early, and leaving two days after. Even with the double deviation fees, the fare is less than half of what Kayak is showing currently for that RT, even in the off-season. In the very, very fine print on the email promotion notice I received notifying me of the deal, I found a terms and conditions link. https://www.ncl.com/termsandconditions/promotions?cheetahid=5000007937246&cid=EM_MKD_NA_PRO_EML_tac1_EML_TAKEALLAIR0519_CNTAKEALL051519A
This was the relevant information for me:
All guests booked within a singular reservation will be booked on the same flight.Norwegian Cruise Line will book guests' airfare with a maximum of one connection when possible; air schedules permitting.Norwegian Cruise Line reserves the right to select an alternate airport within 60 miles based on itinerary, choose the air carrier,routing and city airport from each gateway city and reserves the right to substitute commuter service and/or charter air service for scheduled air carriers without prior notice.
Even with this information from the NCL website, I'm interested to hear about real life experiences.
