  1. We are also on the Feb. 15, 2021 sailing that was cancelled. Here is the email they sent: Dear Valued Guests and Travel Partners: On behalf of Norwegian Cruise Line, thank you very much for your loyalty and for making us your vacation of choice. We have important information for you regarding Norwegian Sun's sailings from February 15, 2021 through April 1, 2021. As a result of fleet redeployment, all Norwegian Sun sailings from February 15, 2021 through April 1, 2021 have been canceled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Please be advised that a full refund will be automatically processed back to the form of payment provided at the time of booking. As a goodwill gesture, we have arranged for a future cruise credit, worth 10% toward your future cruise, to be issued to all guests. This can be used for up to one year from today's date and can be applied towards any of our currently published sailings. If you are interested in choosing another sailing, please contact your travel professional or contact Norwegian Cruise Line at 1-866-234-7350. For any guests booked outside of the US/Canada, please visit www.ncl.com for our local contact information in handling your reservation. We greatly appreciate your understanding and thank you for choosing Norwegian Cruise Line for your upcoming vacation at sea. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
  2. I take both into consideration. First I look for an itinerary, but I've had itineraries change in the past, so I also look at the ship. We prefer the Jewel class ships or a similar size. I have no desire to sail on the giant ships. That would deter me from sailing even if I loved the itinerary. In that case I might look at other cruise lines.
  3. I understand your disappointment, but this seems like the smartest decision. It also doesn't force people to give up their paid-off cruises out of concern for their health. Hopefully the Coronavirus will be resolved/contained before the end of the year, but this seems proactive and in everyone's best interest.
  4. We always book an aft balcony. And we have no interest in bidding for any upgrades. I subscribe to booking the cabin you want. I'm too particular to leave it to chance.
  5. I'm so sorry you are being put in this position. But it sounds like you're making the best of it. I hope you end up having a wonderful time. Best wishes.
  6. So this is their first post. So what? They have as much right to an opinion as anyone.
  7. Sorry it was such a disappointment. Thanks for the warning. Sounds like they haven't figured this one out. Hope you enjoyed your cruise otherwise.
  8. On our March 2019 Jade sailing, we had an aft balcony and were at the end of the route. Our steward had 24 cabins he was responsible for. 24!
  9. Really enjoying your review! Thanks for taking the time to write this. And your son is so cute!!
  10. I'm so sorry your family's much-anticipated vacation was cancelled. I can only imagine how disappointed you must have been.. Thank you for the very important reminder to always read the fine print. Regardless of what people say, I'd be inclined to look elsewhere for future travels as well. Best of luck.
  11. We did a segway tour in St. Kitts last year and it was a very enjoyable excursion. There were people of all ages. It lasted maybe two hours. I believe we booked it thru the ship. Are you in San Juan at night? If so, I highly recommend doing a little research and finding a nice restaurant for dinner. We did that and had a great evening. In St. Thomas you can take an island tour from the port if you've never been. You can also take a taxi downtown and shop and eat. There are shops and restaurants right at the port as well and right across the street is they sky ride to Paradise Point. St. Lucia safari rides are fun and a good way to get a flavor of the island. You should be able to book this thru the ship. You could also arrange an island tour ahead of time for your group. Hope this helps. Enjoy your cruise!
  12. I have never stepped foot on any cruise line's private island. Almost everyone gets off the ship, and it's a great day to enjoy all the amenities on board with no waits for anything. Usually turns out to be one of my favorite days!
  13. Thanks. We've had the same experience on the Jade, Jewel & Dawn. Unless you ask or you know beforehand, you won't be told.
