  1. It was the Glory and it happened shortly before we boarded for our cruise as I recall.

    Has anyone ever missed their ship at a port?

    I already recognized my faux pas regarding how to look at the percentage of passengers. If your experience is someone missing the ship every cruise then of course that is telling.
  3. So possible but not likely😉.

    things stolen - what would you do?

    I equate "budget minded" with "affordability" and as I said I don't think NCL has met that definition for a number of years (and yes, I would agree that they try to market themselves that way).
  5. I suppose it's possible for someone to be leaning over a railing when the ship took a sudden roll causing them to fall overboard but I don't recall seeing anything about rough seas being a factor in any of those man over boards that I've read about. You can be convinced all you'd like to be that someone can just fall off a ship but the fact remains that in order to do so one must be doing something one shouldn't be doing.
  6. The balcony doors are meant to slow the spread of fire and as I understand it only a certain number of them can be open at any given time. Hopefully Chengkp75 will chime in and provide the correct info.

    Shine a bright enough light in someone's eyes and you'll blind them, that's my opinion of NCL's marketing. They haven't been the most affordable option in many years (for us, anyway).

    There are certainly things in the story that are suspect but NCL isn't the budget minded cruise line that it used to be, not since Del Rio took over.

    Price one of their suites and tell me that all NCL cruisers are budget minded😉 (and if you actually price any of their offerings "budget minded" doesn't seem to apply, either, although at one point I believe it did apply). I agree that the story sounds fishy though.

    People with money don't sail NCL?

    Royal - NCL

    Sorry, I meant to say that the cruise lines are more alike than different. OP, If what is offered by a particular ship is important than you should look at what each offers in making your decision.

    I don't know why they would do what they did but the only possible recourse I see is an insurance claim (travel and or homeowners). Whether they recoup any money depends on if the policy covers their own negligence.

    Insurance policy date of birth wrong?

    I don't even see how it would be a problem to have a wrong birthdate on a travel insurance policy but if you are worried that it might be an issue all you can do is try. The worst they can do is refuse to fix the error, but the policy should be in force (not an expert by any means though).

    LOL, I realized that this morning as I was waking up. So we would need to know on how many departures it happens and I'm not sure we could ever figure that out. We know that it doesn't happen on every sailing. I know that it hasn't happened on the 8 ships we've been on (about 25 ports or so). So I'll change my adjective from "rare" to "infrequent" (best word I can come up with this early in the morning).

    It should be a quick fix if you give them a call.
