I'm with you on Jamaica from what I've read here. Also, forfeited deposit on private excursion I'd booked for a canceled port (didn't demand a refund....these folks have lost both home and...

This is true. And I have no idea how to figure out what the costs per port would be. I asked TA about this who inquired about it. She was told we would not get a refund as the costs were the same....

So sorry! This is not how you want a cruise you've paid for a suite to start out. I wasn't in a suite but had a similar issue in Miami the year I went on the Epic with a knee scooter. Because...

Heard the same thing on the Dawn myself! Not in that suite but on another deck where someone had jumped overboard years before. We didn't see anything ourselves, though.
That 86 year old picked...

I usually do a lot of that but the new itinerary has canceled the ones I'd booked for the old itinerary. Folks have recommended ship's excursions for Jamaica for security reasons. That is the main...

We had no customs flying into Dulles from Europe. We filled out the form expecting the usual. Answered a question or two on the computer screen where we scanned our passports. That was it...

[quote=amuth1130;54329947]Just an FYI (I didn't know this until I called today). We had previously booked an excursion through NCL in Nassau.. $234 total and I saw it come off my vacation summary...

Yes, I know they don't run excursions...and concerned as you mentioned about capacity. Since we are last minute additions and only one seems to be available now, it is a worry, especially in a port...

Thanks...didn't know that as it's a "new to me" port.

Perhaps you know where to find this information about tendering versus docking? It is not on my vacation summary/itinerary on myncl. I have seen it on other itineraries in the past but it is not...

Excursions on Rerouted Itineraries
Would appreciate feedback from any who have been on rerouted cruises this fall and others who are on upcoming ones as we are.
There is only ONE excursion total listed for our 11-27 Jade cruise. We...
Thanks for this information. Our TA called and...
Thanks for this information. Our TA called and was told the same thing minus the second paragraph. Not refunding based on uncertainty is one thing; keeping excess port fees is another. Our TA...

Agree with you, OP. Sending the survey to everyone is just good customer service. We get it every time, both of us, from HAL. With RCCL, DH submitted one with a safety concern and had a call from...

Only one excursion total (that one in Aruba) is listed for the Jade 11-27 sailing.
Do you think they will come up with some...such as in Jamaica where I'd really like to follow the poster's advice...

That is a different situation. I'm glad your captain kept you out of harm's way (unlike a commercial ship that sailed into a hurricane and sank last year). Glad you had a good time anyway.
Compared to yours x2, it's spectacular! ...
Compared to yours x2, it's spectacular! Opportunities to cancel would have created a lot of good will. The ship that just got Florida ports is even worse than a switch to Western. At least ours...

Update on my earlier post: New itinerary on myncl as of Monday....no email from NCL and TA did not get it, either. I would not expect them to as I got the "you'll hear in two weeks" email directly.
That was just what I was going to suggest. We...
That was just what I was going to suggest. We did a river cruise last June and bought the cruise line insurance. We booked a precruise privately and were able to secure insurance for that very...

Not that I have ever noticed. What ship is Legend? I've been on Legend of the Seas...RCCL.
You're right! That is worse than OP's new...
You're right! That is worse than OP's new itinerary and ours on the Jade. Much worse. I can console myself by saying that...at least I'm not on the Breakaway for 12/3.
Not liking the new itinerary is not being...
Not liking the new itinerary is not being insensitive to the devastation. It is not caring for the new itinerary and the timing of the changes in the case of the OP. My situation was well after...

Did they send you to Alaska instead? That would be comparable to our cruise. Our Hawaii itinerary had a change of one port. We still went to Hawaii. Ships miss ports all the time and that has...

Thanks...maybe that's why I'm not seeing it yet. The summary just changed to the new one. Although folks had figured it out, I held out hope until it was on the page officially.
Yes, they have. My point was not that changes...
Yes, they have. My point was not that changes had to be made nor that I sailed in hurricane season which I didn't. My question was about how $$ is refunded....and my rant about our entire itinerary...
