Cruise lines cancel, reroute trips as Hurricane Dorian approaches US
This 7-day voyage on the spectacular Explorer of The Seas provides unprecedented engagement with dozens of your favorite stars, featured in special Star Trek -themed shows, events, activities and parties. You are more than a passenger. The cast of big showroom productions will rehearse as a group for weeks on land before joining a new ship. In addition, every ship emerges from the shipyard with a punch list of hundreds or even thousands of little things that need to be fixed.

You also may find that technology-based features such as shipboard internet are still being fine-tuned. Ditto for shipboard provisioning. I have been on early sailings of two new ships this year where the onboard sushi bar ran out of edamame, of all things, by the midpoint of the voyage.
The marble eventually was stripped away to make for a smoother ride. Still, new ships often will sail with at least a few workers from the shipyard on board for the first few days or weeks to knock out the punch lists. On the positive side, most items are quickly resolved. Sometimes the punch list items are biggies.
When I sailed on the long-delayed Scenic Eclipse in September — more than two weeks after the first paying passengers boarded — the main outdoor lounge area still was under construction. The biggest cruise lines typically have a core team of managers and staff that open every new vessel, bringing an expertise to the process that makes for a relatively smooth startup.
At brands as diverse as Norwegian Cruise Line and Viking Cruises, I often see the same bartenders, restaurant servers and room stewards at the unveiling of each new ship.
They just jump from one new vessel to the next. Service sometimes can be spotty while they get up to speed.
On the positive side, cruise lines sometimes purposely undersell early voyages of a new vessel to make it a little easier on the crew while they find their footing. I think about the distinctive experience instead. Sailing on a maiden voyage, or even an early sailing of a new ship, is a chance to be at the front lines as cruising history is being made. That said, before signing up for an early voyage of a new ship, there are a few things you can do to minimize the chance of heartache:.
- Ma religion, cest lAmour (Essais Documents) (French Edition)!
- Forever After (Finding Mr. Right Book 2).
The best credit cards for booking cruises. You also should try to book your flights to the ship in a way that can be reversed on short notice. That way, if the cruise is canceled, getting the air canceled and reimbursed is their problem.

That said, I generally detest booking air through a cruise line. Finally, you should have at least an inkling of a Plan B. Seabourn Cruise Line.
