joergr- I wasn't disputing the travel insurance part.. I was just syaing that I thought the whole point of booking the airfare with the cruiseline was for this reason. Much like if you book an excursion though the ship, and that excursion is late back to the ship, the cruiseline will get you to the next port.
If you paid less for airfare through the cruiseline, then you would be the first person I have ever heard that from. I normally get a much better rate booking it myself.
yes, travel insurance is a wise move.
