whatawonderfulworld Posted September 26, 2006 #1 Share Posted September 26, 2006 Good evening all. I hope I'm posting this in the correct area. I am heading for my first partnered cruise next month. A short 7 day venture from NY down to the Bahamas. What is a partnered cruise? Well it will be DH's first cruise - he's apprehensive regarding seasickness, so we're prepared with patches and dramamine. I anticipate we are going to have a wonderful time. And so much so that I am considering our next cruise to be on the Pearl in September, out of LA, transiting the Canal, and into Miami. You are all such learned sages on every aspect of cruising...what are your thoughts about this trip? It's a new ship - if at all possible I'd love to get one of those courtyard suites (I haven't been able to price out the costs yet). Am I nuts to cruise in this are at that particular time of year? Have any of you seen the itinerary? Thoughts? The ship leaves at 4 - should we fly in from NY the day before? Would you recommend purchasing the airfare when booking or doing so independent of NCL? Are there any specific hotels you would recommend that are in good proximity to the piers in LA? How do we get to the port on sailing day (I'm a NY girl - taxis are abundant - but not in LA)? Thanks so much in advance for your responses. Ciao, W A W W Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
