Are you transiting in Iceland?

Hope you have a safe trip

What is your routing?

We flew during the aftermath of the huge volcanic eruption last year. We ended up with no problems -- even with a connection at Heathrow a week and a half later -- yet we were pretty anxious there for a while. I doubt you'll have any problems given the scope of this one, yet I will keep you in my thoughts.

And, BON VOYAGE!!!

I do not know if they can predict where the ash will go but I do hope you make it to the cruise safely

I was thinking that, too, when I saw the news on closed airspace. Glad your flights went off well... I lived through similar concern a year ago!
