Default Refund due to death in the family

Has anyone had any experience with cancelling/rescheduling due to a relative that is not expected to live (relative not travelling) longer than a few days? We are set to cruise tomorrow and are trying to reschedule...not cancel

I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Do you have travel insurance? Talk to your TA to try to get rescheduled. If you have travel insurance, it should cover this if you need to cancel and reschedule at another date.

My sympathies about your relative.

The cruise lines generally handle these situations on a case by case basis, and you need your agent to approach the cruise line immediately.

The cruise lines will tell people that is the point of having travel insurance, and they are right. No one ever knows what can happen, and that's why everyone should purchase travel insurance!!!!!

The few dollars you scrimp on upfront can end up costing thousands of dollars.

That said, if you get lucky, they MAY (for goodwill purposes) allow you to rebook.
