Just got called to Jury Duty while I am supposed to be on a European Cruise. Will my cruise insurance cover me, since I don't see how I can get out of it? Will insurance cover the $500 Norweign credit card points, flight, port charges, taxs, etc? Does anyone have any advise? Thanks
One of my cruisemates once got called for jury duty during a cruise. She just took her documents with her and she got rescheduled. It is a reasonable request to be dismissed and rescheduled and you won't recieve a hard time.
Here in Arizona, you can get jury duty postponed one time without even having to explain why you can't serve. When our state's citizens get a jury summons, there is a form that you have to fill out and send back, and on there is a space to request a one-time postponement...but mind you, once and only once... I've had to do this a couple of times due to vacations.

Thanks for all the advise. My insurance company (Global Alert) got back to me and said I was covered. But I hate to miss my cruise, so I will take my ticket to the court house and see about getting out of it. My partner and neigbors seem to think I will have no trouble. Thanks again. John
John - depending upon where you live, all you might have to do is to fill out the form that came with your summons, and not make a trip to the courthouse. Where i live you can postpone your jury service for up to 1 year with no questions asked.
