Default Anyone cancel due to the swine flu?

Anyone consider cancel their cruise to Mexico Riviera due to the recent news of the Swine flu?

Thanks,
Tibbie

I am cruising to Cozumel on June 4th. At this point, we are just taking a wait and see approach to the situation. I guess if it gets unsafe to travel to Cozumel, the CDC will inform us not to do so.

The situation is a bit of a concern to us, but like I said, we will just take it one day at a time. I have until May 5th to cancel and I would just lose my deposit. So, I am hoping that by that date we will have a better idea of just how widespread this flu is going to be.

Happy & Healthy Sailing to All!

We are cruising in August...at this point I am waiting to see what will happen too. We are traveling with two small children...so that is why I am concern.

For some...you can be all sarcasm if you want..but when it hits home and one of your family member are infected...it might not be so funny.

Well have you finished all your Spam and bottled watter from Y2K?
Yea the "Media" told us to stock up on that and panic as well!

Its a flu....there have been many and there will be more. The media lives for these things. It's called sensationalism......If it bleads it leads....etc.

The thought is in my mind about going to Cozumel next month on Destiny.

I will not cancel my cruise. I do hope that if it serious enough the CDC will tell me before I get there and find out first hand.

I know the trouble spot is Mexico city but sick people do have a habit of wanting to travel no matter what.

Maybe nice detour to St Thomas.....
