Sail Date: Nov 2021
Cabin:

Well, this is the new norm, thanks Covid! Booked the cruise for Charleston, found letter on bed as we checked in, C'ston cancelled. Also the balcony cabin was much smaller than expected, & bathroom the tiniest ever. We're not even tall or overweight & your knees hit the wall as you sat on toilet. That's a new one!

So onward to extra sea day, & NCL fortunately got into DCL space & put us in Canaveral day early. They offered shore excur to Dis Springs & DW, natch, hoping peeps spend a lotta $$. I have Annual Pass but of course didn't bring it as DW wasn't scheduled, we booked Kennedy Space.

So onto next port of call, Gr Stirrup Cay, also cancelled, 35mph winds, sigh. Turned around, didn't even see it, onto NY. I asked crew, can't we get to NY day early then & do shore excursions?? Nope.
