Default NCL America - which airline?

Does anyone know which airline NCL uses to fly crew to Hawaii?

I don't know if it makes a difference where they have to fly you from but so far for my Grandson it has been all Delta. He lives in Tampa so that is either the starting or ending point. And the freinds that he has on the ship have all flown Delta. Whether they use Delta for any flight to a major hub that has flights to Hawaii or if they use another I don't know.

Hope this helps.

Most likely the cheapest fare available - if it's Delta . . . so be it.

It may depends on the area you live in.

One thing you have to think about is the dreaded luggage fee. If you have a non-stop flight you don't have to worry about it. But if you have stops on two different airlines you may pay a baggage fee of at least $50 per airline.

If you want to be creative, mail you bags ahead of you.

Try UPS.

As a 'seaman' - you might qualify to be overweight or not pay for luggage. Check with your scheduler at the cruise line - you'll probably need to show your seamans book (if you have one) and/or letter of employment from the line when checking in. I don't have the book, but have used the 'LOE' and didn't have to pay for an extra bag once (can't remember the airline)

Also check and see if you can mail anything you don't need immediately to the ship directly - usually the same address any crew mail is sent to. I usually send ahead vitamins/hair care products when I'm based out of non-US ports. Mail goes to our Miami office and then is sent in bulk to the ship for turnaround days.

The mail thing is VERY popular for crew when signing off. Amazing how much crap you can accumulate in a contract! Mail home a suitcase instead of flying . . .
