Norwegian Cruise Line has reached out to guests on the current voyage of Norwegian Avg of travel changes designed not to avoid a call, but to save one.
These changes are being made so that visitors can visit Venice, with enough time to enjoy this beautiful city.
Tendering is not possible in Venice
Strangers on board Norwegian Avg for the next 10 days they will visit all the ports planned for their one trip between Ravenna and Athens, but not all that are expected, but also another port that is used for tourists to land. the port that was originally planned for.
The opposite port of Venice, which has done limits on passenger traffic and fleet size to protect and defend the Lagoon of Venice. Because of this, Norwegian Avg it has been recently hospitality rather than attractiona response that did not go as well as the cruise ship had hoped.
“Although we have tried our best to make calls to Venice, the quality of service and experience we have had means that our guests are unable to achieve what we want to offer,” he said. a letter to the guests was read.
Local ferries, storage facilities, and delivery times for most passengers – Norwegian Avg it has a capacity of about 2,400 guests – all of which could be reasons for changing performance.
“As a result, our call to Venice will be replaced by a call to Trieste, Italy and arrangements have been made to ensure that all guests still have the opportunity to explore the magical city of Venice.”
To accommodate this change, the itinerary has been changed to Koper, Slovenia first, then Trieste. From Trieste, tourists will be able to go to Venice. The distance between the two cities in northern Italy is about 160 kilometers (100 miles), which is about 2 hours by car.
The train is changing the sailing times purchased by NCL to match the new date and include a trip from Trieste to Venice. If other trips cannot be rescheduled, full refunds will be made to guest accounts.
The Norwegians have also organized free shuttles between Trieste and Venice for visitors who want to see this fascinating city without a formal beach visit. Details of these arrangements are available at the ship’s Shore Excursion Desk.
Some Ports Changed to Pay
Due to itinerary changes to accommodate the visit to Venice, three additional ports on the 9-night “Greek Isles” cruise have also been changed.
Trips to Koper, Slovenia; Split, Croatia; and Kotor, Montenegro have all been changed to different dates. Port timings have also been adjusted slightly, and tourists will now leave Koper two hours earlier than planned.
The timetable for Split has been significantly changed and will now be from 11am to 9pm and not from 7am to 6pm as originally planned, while the train will arrive in Kotor three hours later than planned.
Shore excursions at all three locations will be automatically updated. Guests with independent arrangements will need to contact their property manager to cancel or change the arrangements available.
The remaining ports of call have not been changed, and the ship will visit Dubrovnik, Croatia as well as Corfu, Santorini, and Mykonos in Greece as originally planned. Similarly, the arrival of the ship in Piraeus (Athens) on Wednesday, June 28 is not affected.
Future Trips Will Change
Although this itinerary change is confirmed for departure on June 19, 2023 Norwegian Avgit is likely that similar tours in the next few weeks will be changed, especially if the changes are successful in allowing tourists to continue enjoying Venice, a place that is on the bucket list of many travelers.
Trips on June 28, July 17, and July 26 may be affected, and guests with reservations for upcoming trips should contact Norwegian Cruise Line changes.
