I have read about this new 10/11 day cruise for next year in the press release. However, in trying to check it out I can find no info on NCL, travelocity, expedia or orbitz. I am really interested in taking my adult kids between 7/15-8/15/05. I love the idea of SEA rt as the air is about $175 pp lower and oldest DD went to school there and we would add on days. Further, daughters have done Carribean many times but their partners are NOT sun/water people so Alaska would be a preferable itinerary. I usually book 8-13 weeks in advance but this one I would deposit ASAP to get the cabins I would prefer. I know the Dream is old etc but sailed her 11/02 and found I do love freestyle.
Most of the cruise lines haven't "officially" released their 2005 itineraries for booking yet. Your best bet would be to either talk to a travel agent in person, or call NCL and talk to someone there. They should be able to tell you if you can book it yet or not.
Have been in touch w/ TA. NCL has not yet released exact dates/itineraries for Drean Alaska 05. However, I suspect she will be in touch as soon as they are as I am planning a family/group cruise following youngest DD wedding. I just hope I can afford the trip as I am buying for 6 of us. Often, when new home ports or itineraries become available they get very $$ the first couple years till there is more competition.This is especially true of round trips out of Seattle with the air becoming almost reasonable.
