Ok I have another question.. I was looking at my itinerary and noticed the sailing times from the diffrent stops I am making then I noticed something disturbing... when I am in St. Thomas I will be scuba diving I am supposed to go at 12:30pm for 5 hours thus 5:30pm yet the sailing time listed on the itinerary is 5pm. So does this mean my scuba dive will be cut short or does the ship wait? BTW the scuba excursion was booked through NCL.

I've run into this a couple of times; you must assume the sailing time on the itinerary is correct and the dive time will be less. The cruise line will notify you of any change in the itinerary--ports, or times of arrival or departure.
You could call NCL to check but I'm sure the error is in the shore excursion time.
Yes, the ship will wait if there is an unforseen delay, but this is just a clerical error.

Oh ok. I will have to check with NCL to be sure.

I did read that on my iteneray that times and ports may change. One thing to add to that is in the NCL brochure book this sailing, 4/21 is the only sailing date that lists times and ports subject to change.

What would, besides weather and or emergency, change the ports and times??

Besides the whims of the cruise gods, that's about it.
Sometimes they like to keep their options open because of wind and/or tidal conditions. And other lines' schedules can be a factor: it could affect whether they dock or have to tender.
