Default New British Isles/ Europe itinerary !!!! yea !!!

I see that NCL has finally added a British Isle itinerary for next year. It's only 1 sailing, but it's a start. Unfortunately we're booked doing something else then, but hopefully it will be a hit and we can do it in '09.

London, Paris, Falmouth, Cork, Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Inverness,Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Brussels - woo-hoo!

We did a similar itin on the Golden Princess last year and want to do it again - but this way we can use cruise points !!!

that is a great itinerary. I wish they would add the one we did in 2005: we started in London and cruised to Dublin, then we hearded across the northern Atlantic hitting Iceland and NewFoundland, down to RI and ended in NYC> It was the best cruise we have done. NMnita

Jackie - cruise ponts (Compass Points more precisely) are like frequent fliier miles. You get them with the Bank of America mastercard. There are lots of threads on that topic. You should be able to link to the M/C site directly from NCL's site, although I've not tried it on their "new and improved" web page.

Nita - Yeh, that's a great itinerary, too. I think they called it "path of the vikings". I wrote the customer relations department requesting this itinerary two years ago and, who knows, maybe it worked. I'm going to watch how quickly this cruise fills up and hope it will be something they want to do again.

Maybe we should all write in with our favorite itineraries and support each other's dream trip.

It doesn´t sails from London if the port is in Southampton, Southampton is another town!

Strange that it doesn´t sail from Dover, NCLs other cruises from Britain does that.

erik- true, only small ships can sail from London, but the itinerary is listed that way. Just as Rome isn't really Rome and Paris isn't Paris and multiple other ports of call are not really as they are listed. The pre and post hotel packages are in London and the airport is there so . . . And yes, Dover is the usual NCL UK port. Maybe they're joining Princess at Southampton.

Magnolia, I understand what you mean.

The big differance between Citvitavecchia, outside Rome, and Southampton is that Civitavecchia is a very small place and Southampton is a real town! I really don´t think that people living in Southampton see themself as Londoners!
