Norwegian Dream, which set sail from Houston this weekend, called on Veracruz on Monday with an overnight stay and will spend a full day there on Tuesday. The ship will spend a day at sea and call into Progreso on Thursday and return to the Port of Houston on Saturday.

Norwegian Sun will spend two days at sea, then call into Belize on Wednesday and Roatan, Honduras on Thursday as scheduled. Norwegian Sun will then call into Cozumel on Friday -- if the port is open for cruise passengers. The ship will return to the Port of Houston on Sunday.

Tis is the latest news from NCL as of Oct 26, 5 PM:

The process of recovery and restoration in the hardest hit areas of the Yucatan Peninsula will be lengthy. As of now, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Cancun can not accept cruise ships and our return there will be contingent on their recovery. As such, the company is forced to amend itineraries for the following ships:

Norwegian Dream (Houston departure/7-day) – Until further notice, Norwegian Dream will sail a modified itinerary spending Sunday and Monday at sea, calling into Roatan, Honduras on Tuesday and Belize City, Belize on Wednesday and spending Thursday and Friday at sea returning to the Port of Houston on Saturday.

Norwegian Sun (Houston departure/7-day) – Until further notice, Norwegian Sun will sail a modified itinerary spending Monday and Tuesday at sea, calling into Belize City, Belize on Wednesday and Roatan, Honduras on Thursday and spending Friday and Saturday at sea returning to the Port of Houston on Sunday.

Norwegian Dawn (New York departure) – Norwegian Dawn’s October 19 cruise has been modified to call into Nassau instead of Great Stirrup Cay. The company will be announcing shortly modifications of the ship’s next cruise leaving on Sunday, October 30.

Any word about NCL Majesty?

We are leaving from Charleston, SC on November 19 and scheduled to visit Grand Caymon, Cozumel, and Key West.

Sportcat welcome to cruise-chat. As far as the Majesty changing itineraries, its hard to say, last year we went in December and were supposed to go to Grand Cayman, as an agent I should have been informed about any changes, but there was never any word about changes. We found out when we were boarding the ship, we were handed a slip of paper during embarkation that stated due to the hurricane damage in Grand Cayman we were being re-routed to Cancun. That was the first we had heard about it.

I guess the cruise line takes it on a week to week case. Since Cozumel is stating they will be ready to start receiving cruise ships on Nov. 14th, you could still go, then again, you could be re-routed to a different port. Its hard to say.

NCL is still saying that they will only sail to two ports (Roatan & Belize), even for our Nov 19 NCL Dream sailing from Houston. All other cruise lines are amended to call into Costa Maya. The port at Costa Maya says that they were unaffected by Wilma, operating at 100% and have 100% of shore excursions operating as well. They also say that they are able to handle the extra traffic from Cancun and Cozumel. NCL does not appear to be making any attempts to accomodate their passengers with a substitution for Cancun and Cozumel, but would rather just keep everyone at sea... We do get $28 back per person, however. (Why bother...?)

Does anyone know if the Dream will stil be sailing out of Houston on November 12? Was Honduras canceled? I called NCL and they will not allow for us to reschedule for a later date or cancel with out a penalty (50%).

The latest from the NCL web site:

Norwegian Dream (Houston departure/7-day) – Until further notice, Norwegian Dream will sail a modified itinerary spending Sunday and Monday at sea, calling into Roatan, Honduras on Tuesday and Belize City, Belize on Wednesday and spending Thursday and Friday at sea returning to the Port of Houston on Saturday.

Norwegian Sun (Houston departure/7-day) – Until further notice, Norwegian Sun will sail a modified itinerary spending Monday and Tuesday at sea, calling into Belize City, Belize on Wednesday and Roatan, Honduras on Thursday and spending Friday and Saturday at sea returning to the Port of Houston on Sunday.

We're booked on the Nov 19 Dream cruise and also called to ask to cancel due to the itinerary changes. The NCL rep we spoke with was not only reading from a prepared script concerned only with NCL's legal rights, she was plain rude. And you don't get your $28 dollars back; you get to spend them with Norwegian as onboard credit. I know we won't ever book an NCL cruise again.

I am also scheduled to sail on the N. Sun on 11/20. I called once Wilma hit to see about canceling. I talked to a supervisor, Holly and she was extremely rude and insensitive. I am really insulted when the travel agent and NCL both tell me it is all about the ship. If this is true, why not just dry dock it and sell tickets. Sure would save a lot on fuel. I do feel a shortchanged, but I am going to make the best of it.

Sue, our rude and insensitive NCL supervisor was also named Holly. Perhaps the same Holly Molter? Holly needs to find a different line of work. We're making the best of it too b/c we have no choice, as Holly so gleefully pointed out, but she sure didn't make the bitter pill any easier to swallow. Have a good trip anyway.
