I posted here about having to change my cabinmate, and now people said it wouldn't be that hard, maybe a penalty would be exacted. Now in talking to my travel agent, I am finding out how inflexible NCL is being. My mother is having surgery and cannot go so my brother volunteered to take her place. Because that cruise is in "finalization", ticketing I guess, the TA may not be able to get them to allow the change. Has anyone had to go directly to NCL? Would talking to them help at all? Or do I have to take this cruise alone? Anyone had this problem arise? Thanks!
