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 Tropical Storm Irene. Because of the storm, we have modified the following itinerary:
Norwegian Gem will remain at sea, keeping a safe distance from the storm, on Sunday, August 28 instead of returning to New York as scheduled. The ship will arrive in New York at 7 am on Monday, August 29. All guests for the August 28 cruise are asked to arrive at the pier on Monday, August 29 beginning at noon. The ship is scheduled to depart New York at 4 pm on Monday en route to Bermuda. The current itinerary calls for three full days in Bermuda as scheduled.
Guests on board the vessel will be kept up to date by the ship’s Captain. We appreciate our guests’ understanding.
