CrazyCruiser I am sorry to hear about your illness. You must take care of yourself. Hepetitis is nothing to mess with. I feel bad that you will miss your cruise. I take it you did not buy insurance. I am sure this is the time you wish you had. It is always a waste of money until you need it. Just like medical or life insurance. There should be a website where people can buy cruises from people like yourself who did not buy insurance and now cannot go. A good deal for them and a less of a loss for you. I know Carnival only charges $50.00 for a name and info change. Maybe you could start a new thread...Tickets for sale cannot go...Great Deal! Maybe you could list them on eBay. Opening bid and high bidder wins. They can pay through Paypal. Protects you and them.
