Default Re: Hurricane Comps

Why is it so hard for people to understand that by booking a cruise during hurricane season (or even a bit after) that there might be the chance that the ship might have to make some changes in itinerary and that its not the cruiselines duty to pay them anything? Sometimes missing a port is a chance you take and its written out on the contract that that could happen. IF they do give you some compensation or make a port change, consider yourself very lucky. The cruiselines cannot control the weather ,or acts of unrest ,or labor strikes, etc. (well...maybe they can control labor strikes, if they are the ones being striked against)

Also...just my opinion....I also feel that one of the reasons people expect so much is because they don't use a competent and knowledgeableTA that would explain ahead of time the things that could possibly happen and what the cruiseline is responsible for.

Read the fine print everyone.
