- Cabin Type: Family Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window
We did enjoy the ports, but we were not able to stop at Ponta De Gada Portugal. We arrived and there was a smaller ship having problems so we were stopped from entering port. As we sailed around to wait to enter port the winds picked up and we were told we couldn't dock. When we got to Miami, we had to go through immigration and we couldn't do anything. Once you were called off the ship, you couldn't get back on until the ship was cleared by authorities. Some passengers were called off around 7 a.m. and we didn't get back on until after 3 p.m.! It was a real mess! That shouldn't have been this way. When we had to meet with immigration to go into Ireland, immigration was on the ship and things were smooth!
Overall, we enjoyed the ports, but not the service. I am writing a letter to Norwegian Headquarters with everything that happened. I was told by guest services to do this.
And we had an unexpected visitor on board....Hurricane Pablo made a visit! The captain said we would have rough weather and I kept watching the TV screen. It would tell the wind speed and what it had to get to to become a hurricane. Then it happened, we went above the wind speed. That screen then disappeared! The captain said when we docked in New Orleans to get off the ship that we are all seasoned sailors. He said we went thru a hurricane and the ship didn't get damaged.
I never like to come home from a trip, but I was glad to come home this time!
