Firstvtime cruiser. I live near Newark Airport and NCL is arranging our flights to Anchorage and then transportationto Seward. Cruise leaves at 9pm on Monday August14th. . I'm dreading the arrangements they will come up with! I want to ask them to fly us in the day before and we pay for our own transportation to Seward and hotel but would love any tips. The hotel for the day before that was offered by Norwegian was $329 PER PERSON. That's insane!
