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?
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.
