NCL's responsibility. How they resolve it involves too many imponderables - whether yours is a scheduled BA flight or the aircraft is chartered by NCL, whether the aircraft is already stranded at Heathrow or can be diverted inbound to meet you elsewhere, or another aircraft can be found. .And closures - even at other airports - on thursday can screw things up . Also the length of the delay & whether the ship can make up lost time before its first scheduled stop. If your flight is an NCL charter I'm guessing they'll do their damnest to get you to Barcelona in time to join the ship. If comparatively few passengers are involved, they may fly you out to join the ship at a later port. Don't know the score with compensation if it all goes pear-shaped, hopefully other contributors will. If you're on a scheduled flight, it may be worth belling your agent or NCL now for advice. Presumably NCL have your e-mail address for last-minute instructions. Unless you are told otherwise (if by phone, make a note of their name, position, phone number, time they contacted you, etc), I suggest you check in on time, even if the airport (runway) is closed, keeping the onus on them....................but, hey, don't worry, all involved will bust a gut to keep the airport open and chances are that the worst you'll suffer will be a slight hiccup.

If you have booked a fly cruise package it's NCL's responsibility to get you there. That could even mean a change of departure airport or if the flight is late the ship will wait for you....Wilba.

We got caugt up in the Janury 17th 2008 closure of Terminal 4 and instead of flying Edin/Heathrow we went to Frankfurt and then onto Singapore where we picked up the flight we were due to join there to takes us onto Sydney.

We were on Island Star eighteen months ago when a flight from Manchester was delayed by many hours. The Ship waited for them and the time was easily made up before the first Port in spite of a detour because of a Passenger's illness. They'll sort it.
