NCL Offers Unusual Weather Guarantee
Norwegian Cruise Lines, which has pioneered a contemporary innovation in assigning its Norwegian Dawn to a year round -- hot weather, cold weather -- home port in Manhattan, is offering its passengers a unique guarantee. In a nutshell, the "weather guarantee" says that if Norwegian Dawn's departure from New York is delayed by weather for more than 12 hours, passengers can opt for an immediate onboard credit of $100 per person (maximum $200 per cabin). In a second option, passengers can opt to cancel their cruise at the 12 hour point -- and NCL will offer a full cruise credit for the same stateroom category on a future Dawn cruise.

In the event -- and NCL is covering all the bases here -- that a cruise is actually cancelled as a result of inclement winter weather, NCL will not only provide a full cruise credit but also will pay any "reasonable incidental expenses" passengers incur in rearranging their travel plans.

It must be noted, however, that travelers are still -- good weather or bad -- responsible for getting themselves to and from the ship. NCL is not responsible for missed cruises because of inclement weather delay (need we say the words: travel insurance?).

Norwegian Dawn's winter cruise schedule includes its flagship seven-night Bahamas itineraries (which also call at Miami and Port Canaveral) along with a sprinkling of 10- and 11-night trips to the more exotic Southern Caribbean. All cruises sail roundtrip from Manhattan.
