We did buy the Berkley insurance, but this is not one of their acceptable cancelation reasons. I have talked to Expedia 3 times Carnival 2 times and Berkley Insurance 1 time. Nobody wants to accept our situation, and regardless of us buying the insurance we will lose our deposit. Regardless of how many times you use a service shouldn't you expect better service than a straight NO. So Phil and Liz maybe if I have cruised 20 times you think they would think differently? I doubt it.
Why can't you cancel the cruise, do an imaginary one so the deposit won't be lost? If you still have a few days to cancel, why don't you NOW? You might lose a few dollars but it's better than losing it all! Didn't anyone inform you of this?
