I’m going on a cruise in a few weeks and all the ports of call were impacted by the hurricanes. The cruise line has notified us that they will not be going to those islands, but they have not told us where we will be going. I really hate it when a company does shit like this. I understand that they have no choice in the matter, that its for safety reasons, that the islands do not need tourist getting in the way of repair work, ect., but the least they could do is keep us informed.
And they could stop asking if I want to book an excursion. I mean what’s the point? I don’t know if we will be going to the original islands. And if I do and we go to a different set of islands, what happens then? Do I get a refund? Do they check to see if there is a matching excursion on the new islands? Fuck that. I’ll wait until I know for sure. Either when they send an updated itinerary or after I board.
I’m not holding it against Norwegian this time because I’m pretty sure they are waiting to see if any of the islands will be capable of receiving ships before they set up an alternate itinerary, but I’m pretty sure that we won’t be going to San Juan which got a direct hit.
