Thats a bad deal if you have already bought airfare.. On our cruise I bought the airfare way back in Febuary for a cruise in nov,It was a deal then.. I remember when Katrina hit 4 weeks before our cruise on the holiday and they canceled the cruise.. sad thing is that carnival NEVER called us,nor did they offer a deal to get us on another cruise,, Sometimes they are bad about costumer care!
Yes, Everyone knows that unscheduled dry docks happen, and have happened with all cruise lines. When this happens, cruise lines normally will reimburse the exchange fee for those already holding airline tickets that they bought on their own. They really aren't obligated to do even that, since they offer their own air program. Also, this is another reason everyone should take out insurance. Sandy's original post was to help those who may not have heard the news, since we all know cruise lines don't always get the message out to everyone affected.
