Default Dawn - NYC/port change/Waves


This is in response to this post:

I heard, today, that the ship was going to be met in New York by Donald Trump for a TV spot and was to be filmed as they arrived. Has anyone else heard anything like that? It was on the radio. I hope the Captain/Ship Line wasn't trying too hard to make it there in time?

My comment:

Yes.....I saw something on Inside Edition (Deborah Norville was anchoring -- no pun intended!!!!) that said there was a change in ports for the Dawn cruise that was hit by the rogue wave.

Inside Edition interviewed a couple that said they had gotten a phone call from NCL that told them their would be a change of ports (Nassau?) in their itinerary and there was no explanation given.

There was speculation that the Dawn was headed to NYC in connection with Donald Trump's The Apprentice TV show. The program could not confirm this information.

All in all....I would not have enjoyed being in that storm but the ship seemed to handle it well since everybody made it back to dry land.

On another TV news show they interviewed someone who was very frightened and said that was their first and last cruise (I felt bad for him since we love cruising so very much) and then they intervewed another woman who said, "Would I go on another cruise after this? Yes, I'm already booked!" Way to go.

I read and saw some of those "ill fated" passengers on TV and in print. I love a stormy day at sea. I just can't seem to get on a ship lately that has one. I was on the QM2 twice, which is "the" ship to ride the waves in. Both times the ocean was as smooth as glass. The "first and last cruise" people, probably fall in the "cruise isn't for you" crowd. It suprises me that people expect the weather to go their way. I hope they are not on my next cruise. Which will be the Voyager of the Seas out of NY in June, maybe I'll get my waves?

Thanks, HappyJan, that's good reporting. We've been on 14 cruises now and some have been smooth sailing and some have been 'with waves' (as J.P. put it) but all have been a wonderful experience. For us, it's the only way to travel. And, I agree, everyone made it to dry land and the cruise line will bend over backwards to make it up to everyone -- even though it was 'weather' and not under their control. What an adventure story they all now have to tell the rest of their lives! Now the pressure is off The Dawn, now that the Grandeur of the Seas (which we sailed on recently) is on the front page. Memories for All.
