Hi Fern Hope this helps. Once your on the site all you have to do is pick your
destination and then the dates and click on find cruise. It brings up and advance
search box but if you'll just scroll down all of the cruise are listed with the price
At least it worked like that for me when I checked to see if the cruise we have
booked had sold out or if the price had dropped.

I agree. I have used Disney and RCCL to do my own bookings with no trouble at all.
NCL's is lacking and not user friendly.

Lately when I try to get on the site 4 times out of 5 it freezes my whole computer . I think I'll give up & research some other lines.

IMHO, Princess has the best site.

Thanks,

Have to agree...but if you pick a category like "veranda" and then get to the prices for "veranda" cabin.. you will find several different categories which I find confusing. I do like the Celebrity site where I can find a category and then check out the location on a ship (Aqua, C1, C2, C3), prices per person, any special sales (military, seniors).. then the total figure.

What problem are you having? I just tried searching for a cruise and I found it very easy just by clicking on "advanced search" on the front page.

What are you doing when it freeezes up?

I do admit I dislike those popups that black out the whole page until you close them. A lot of sites have them now, I don't like them, but if I am close them I am just fine them.

Paul, I'm using AOL and while waiting for the page to load (about 4 minutes, still not loaded), I went to IE and got right in. Apparently, it's an AOL problem. At least it was trying to load! When it froze my whole computer it was as soon as I clicked on www .NCL .com.

I also found prices. Maybe they were changing the prices the time I couldn't find them, or maybe I'm just :???::???:. My TA was able to see prices on her site.

Who knows ,

Well, I'm trying to look at the Epic for the CM's October cruise, but now the site freezes up my computer whether I'm in AOL or IE.

Any advice would be appreciated!

And Parrot Mom, you are so right !

Kuki, I've been there. What I'm looking for is deck plans for the Epic. I'm not familiar enough with the Epic to know which cabin is located where .

Since I'm unable to pull up the NCL site I can't see the deck plans. I'll check with my TA next week and get a brochure with the plans (hopefully).

As you can see above, I've had trouble with the NCL site for a long time. I don't have any idea why. I can bring up many of the other cruise line's sites, CM's, the "other" site for Roll Calls, etc., but clicking the NCL site freezes my computer .

It's very strange... .

Fern,
Try cruisedeckplans.com

They have a public site that will allow you to look at deck plans.

I actually subscribed to it several years ago so I could see pictures other members took. It is a nice site with great information. Hope that helps.

Thanks, BW. I do have a link to cruisedeckplans, I just can't justify paying for information I should be able to get from the cruise line sites .

I just wish I could pull up NCL as easily as I can see Carnival and Princess!

You don't need to pay to access the free portion of their site...
Norwegian Epic Deck plans for Norwegian Cruise Line

Hope that helps.

Thanks, T! I still haven't been able to load the NCL site, but your info should help! DH did a major clean up of my computer, but logging onto the NCL site still freezes it up . It's very strange.... .

I find the NCL site very slow too. And for some reason it won't accept my Latitudes number when I try to plug that in. It seems as if it's ok for some and others it lags.

Peter, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I'm beginning to think it's not AOL, but the NCL site .

Default "Technology" for Epic Pages

I have accessed NCL's website quite a few times with no problem (even on an old computer).

However, I just went to look at the problematic deck plans for the Epic. Seems NCL is employing some "fancy technology" since the ship is new, etc.

First they take you to a SEPARATE website (not the regular NCL website).

Second (bigger) problem is that when you try to get the deck plans, it doesn't just show you the page - but instead brings up some sort of flash application which takes a L-O-N-G time to load. Also some browsers or computers may not have the right applications or plug-ins loaded to even use this feature. (Either one of these could cause difficulties for Fern - and others.)

Somebody probably thought "fancy" would equate to better. NOT!

Everything's slow for me on the NCL site, regardless of which computer I'm on. No biggie, I just need to be patient. But I did request a brochure from NCL and they sent me a DVD on the epic and it's full of info and artist renditions, etc. Pretty nice. Sort of a homely ship from the outside IMO... but spectacular looking inside. Try to get that disk.

Fern:

Turn your pop blocker off. The Macromedia Flash Player display is treated like a pop up by some systems.

Take care,
Mike

Mike M, thank you, thank you! I turned off the pop-up blocker and I was able to get far enough to order a brochure! When I tried to check cruise's before and after the Chef's cruise (we're in the middle of the country-we like to cruise B2B's if possible), it froze up again, but at least I have info coming snail mail (hopefully !).

I hope you and Betty are doing well,
