If you are looking at going into certain ports like Glacier Bay, NCL doesn't get permits to go there.
If NCL doesn't get permits to go to Glacier Bay, where has the Norwegian Star been sailing these last few years, and where will the Norwegian Pearl be sailing next year? At least one would think you would report correct information.
It is true not every ship can get permits to sail into Glacier Bay, but one NCL ship has been and will be receiving these permits.
So, one of three NCL ships sailing to Alaska gets a Glacier Bay permit.
I wonder what the percentages are for some other cruise lines?
Carnival > one out of one.
Celebrity > zero out of three.
Holland America > five out of eight.
Princess > five out of eight.
Royal Caribbean > zero out of three.
While NCL doesn't have five ships sailing to Glacier Bay next year, it does have one ship sailing to Glacier Bay on a weekly basis. So does Carnival. That's much better than Royal Caribbean and Celebrity which have none.
