Default should I still go if partner doesn't get passport

Hi, should I still go if my partner can't get on board because she hasn't a passport.. she's just told me. The cruise is Friday - 2 days time.
She want's to delay the cruise to January, where i thought there was no transfers. We'd planned it so we'd have Xmas and New Year away. Does anyone know what will happen if I still go? Is there anyone who'd like to join me . Particulars 17 day cruise, 16-2 Jan, Sydney to Tasmania to NZ fly back from Auckland. MS Maasdam. If anyone got suggestions my mobile is Sydney Aust. (61) 432 302 832 or 0432 302 832

not sure the rules there but most cruise lines if you cancel now you lose the money paid less port fees which are the only refundable portion

good luck

You should check with your agent, but as LuLu said, they will not get any money refunded, except taxes. The cruise line will not transfer their money to another cruise. So, you'll not get charged anything for going by yourself, since in affect, the other person in your cabin is already paid for and you'll get the cabin by yourself.

If you cancel, you'll lose your money, so go and enjoy yourself.

I would not enjoy a cruise without my significant other.

They didn't say it was their 'significant other'. They said partner and because they're were even asking whether they should go or not, I was assuming it was not someone who would be considered 'significant' or even important to them. After all, if their 'partner' was someone that was really important to them and it was a close relationship, they wouldn't have even asked the question in the first place.

If it was someone who meant alot to me, I agree in that I would not go and suffer the consequences of loosing my money.

Hopefully, the original poster will come back and clarify all this and let us know what they decided to do.

Default Yes!

Very recently I had to stay on land while my family went on a cruise as horrible as it felt for me I was extremely glad I insisted they go on without me.
They had a really great time.
Also I took a cruise where my cruise mates were doing other things and spent a lot of time alone on the ship.....it was very nice actually and more relaxing in a lot of ways...
Don't miss out and lose money....you'll both be depressed

If money is not an issue. Its better to book another trip with your partner. Then make sure that everything is ok. Passport, schedule, ticket and also accommodation like hotel. 100 % sure that you and your partner will enjoy your vacation.
