  1. Just checked NCL website and there are no September cruises to Europe .. so I have my answer. It was always debateable that GB and USA visitors would be allowed !!!
  2. What are your thoughts on September cruises in Europe .. any indication that they may go ahead ???
  3. Personally we are reluctant to do this cruise with the added problems of dining, speciality and open. Social distancing in the theatre and bars...etc. Added to that the flights, accommodation for 3 nights pre cruise and transfers. A nightmare of keeping safe. We were so looking forward to the new Spirit and visiting the Greek islands .. now I'm not so sure.
  4. We are booked on the Spirit cruise 27th September cruise Athens to Athens Any thoughts on this cruise going ahead ? We are in the UK so I don't know if cancellation terms are the same as USA .. probably will lose our deposits if we cancel .Full balance 6th June. Also our flights if we cancel are non refundable. We have been on the Spirit for the last 4 years at Christmas/New Year .. we love it and the refurbishment looks superb ( I don't like the big screen ) IMO it will spoil the whole atmosphere of that area .. especially walking down the twin staircases .
  5. Thanks, I'm awaiting advice from my TA. Personally we are reluctant to do this cruise with the added problems of dining, speciality and open.

We were so looking forward to the new Spirit and visiting the Greek islands .. now I'm not so sure.
  6. Yes, thanks … not a lot of activity. Some points to consider . Will the cruise go ahead .. Will the ports accept visitors .. will Athens accept visitors ? How will flights operate ? .. guess I'll have to find my crystal ball !!!
  7. Hi .. is anyone booked on the Spirit cruise 27th September cruise ? Any thoughts on this cruise going ahead ? We are in the UK so I don't know if cancellation terms are the same as USA .. probably will lose our deposits if we cancel . Full balance due next month.
  8. We are in a similar situation. Our final payment is due next month for our September cruise .. but we booked with a UK travel agent. Paid the NCL deposit and return flights to Athens... £800 . If we cancel our cruise and flights we will not get any refunds .. so will lose £800.. we can wait and see if our airline cancels (maybe Greece will restrict arrivals) … we can pay the balance and maybe NCL will cancel the cruise. USA has different rules on cancellation . we have no protection. Can't use insurance cover because if we cancel then the decision is ours not NCL or our airline.
  9. So glad you are home and that your daughter and son in law had your arrival/food/transport organised. I think we met on the Spirit either last Christmas/ New Year or the one before that. We are booked on the Spirit late September ..Athens to Athens. If it goes ahead. Take care
  10. Thank you for all your updates. Hope to see you on the Spirit when all of this is over. Take care
  11. So many call centres record calls .Ask them for a copy of the conversation where you were advised to cancel and write to the customer care team.
  12. Thanks for posting the Prime Minister's speech - he spoke very well with honesty.
  13. Thanks for the recommendation - we are looking now at available hotels/apartments.
  14. Because of the virus NCL have had to cancel and re-route cruises. They must be loosing money so perhaps they are not inclined to offer reductions/upgrades/ OBC. In the UK when we pay a deposit ( TA or NCL ) it is non-refundable or transferable to another cruise. I'm quiet envious when reading how our American friends can price watch and then cancel without penalty before final payment . It's a subject often discussed on these boards and it seems every one is different. You could try phoning and speaking to a different operator (NCL) but as we found when NCL cut short our cruise by one day, dealing through our TA was difficult.
