April 17th Jewel Transatlantic Crossing
 
My wife and I are on this cruise and I have just joined in order to find information on transfers out of Dover to London. I have read the website about buses and trains to London but also read that NCL can assist from on board. Anyone with information please let me know.

Also, if anyone is going on the cruise it would be interesting to chat prior to leaving.

You can purchase a transfer directly from NCL from the ship to either Gatwich or Heathbro. The price is approximately $80 per person.

Ilcapo,

Thanks for the information. WOW I got a bargain. I just booked two bus tickets from Dover to Victoria Station for 10.50 sterling. The bus takes about 20 minutes longer than the train but the driver should offer something to look at.

Thanks again for the information.

11 day tranatlantic
 
we we going on this 11 day cruise ,we are first time free styling so it should be nice, we are getting a taxi which will be waiting at the dover port to heathrow as we need to get the plane that same day ,there are three of us going so we split the taxi 3 ways which is cheaper cost us 155.00 between the three of us its a convience ,hate to miss my plane,
do you now if there is a formal night on this ship all the other cruises i went on had formal night ,but how is it with the free styling cruise, and what do you think the weather is like in april going over the atlantic ocean . its nice to contact some people who are going on the same cruise stay in touch 8)

My understanding is that there are two formal nights. But, I have read frequently that they are not very formal due to the freestyle cruising.

My wife and I have done Royal Carribean and a transatlantic Disney cruise but this is our first with NCL.

Look forward to possibly meeting you. Are you from the states? We are originally from St. Augustine but live in Toledo.
