Default Re: Cruises Only

Insurance would not likely cover the situation with Carnival since the carnival passengers are getting their money back.

Carnival is in breach of their contract with these passengers and may well be liable for the difference in prices between the cost of the Carnival cruise and the cost of a replacement cruise for the same time and any lost airfare or additional airfare to get to a replacement port, There is no legitimate reason why Carnival will not let passengers who had booked cruises with them have another cruise on another ship leaving at the same time unless all cabins on all of their ships for that time are booked.

Carnival is not donating their ships they are chartering the ships i.e. getting money. If the US govt comandeered the ships from Carnival the US govt may be liable to the passengers for difference in prices between the cost of the Carnival cruise and the cost of a replacement cruise for the same time and any lost airfare or additional airfare to get to a replacement port,
