At Norwegian Cruise Line, the safety and security of our guests and crew is of the utmost importance.  Therefore, the company continues to closely monitor the path of Hurricane Irene.  Because of the storm, we are modifying the following itineraries:

Norwegian Jewel will return to New York early on Saturday, August 27 and guests currently on board will disembark beginning at 6 am. 

 Embarkation for the August 27 cruise will commence earlier beginning at 10 am. The ship will depart three hours earlier than scheduled at 1 pm. 

All guests are advised to arrive at the pier between 10 am and noon. Once the ship is underway, there may be a change to the scheduled Bahamas & Florida itinerary.

An update will be provided for Norwegian Gem’s August 28 cruise from New York at approximately 2 pm today. 

Both Norwegian Dawn sailing from Boston and Norwegian Sky sailing from Miami today will depart as scheduled.

Guests on board the vessels will be kept up to date by the ship’s Captain. It is also important to note that we will continue to closely monitor the storm and if the path changes, we may need to modify these itineraries.

We appreciate our guests’ understanding.  Another update will be made to NCL.com at approximately 2 pm this afternoon.
