I had to use the money I was going to pay for the cruise to pay for funeral arrangements and transport her back to our home. My friend who was going to come with me has had a setback in that her significant other has a serious incapacitating illness. She feels that in she cannot leave her significant other in this situation. I am sorry but after discussing the situation she said she cannot go on a cruise. as for myself I would not be good company and must say I cannot go. So sorry.
I am sorry for your loss and understand how you can't make cruise. Maybe next year.
