If she gets delayed out on the 9th will she be delayed coming back on the 16th or will they cut that cruise short?.... sorry such a selfish question!

Sorry me again! If they decide to cancel the 16th sailing how much notice do they usually give? We fly 13th on a prize flight so can't change it ��.. if we cancel now we get no refund on the cruise.
But worries we will get there Wednesday and then Thursday or Friday they decide to cancel ..thanks ! X

According to all forecasts, the hurricane will be quite far away from Florida on the 16th. Am on this cruise too. It is unlikely that the cruise will be cancelled but there may be some changes to itineraries depending on what damage Irma causes this week

There isn't anything forecasted that should affect flights to and from Miami, everything should be fine and the beautiful Divina will be waiting for us on the 16th will be keeping an eye out on what damage Divina does to the places we are due to visit on this cruise though

I guess until the impact of the storm damage is assessed they won't know.

I think it would be a western Caribbean cruise as the ports in that area haven't been affected by Hurricane Irma. I can't see us going to St Maarten after seeing the pictures today

I hate to be the bearer of the bad news, and hopefully you know this by now , but information from another post from a cruiser on board Divina now states MSC has announced they are definitely cancelling the Sept 16th sailing . I am truly sorry your plans are being spoiled . You will get a refund and other compensation but not everyone can reschedule a vacation and airlines will not refund any money . Best of luck .

I think you have the wrong dates. Sept 9th cancelled, no word about the 16th yet. Doubtful it would already be cancelled as they finally made the announcement of the Sept 9th this morning. Link to post?

I'd like to know about this as well. I haven't seen anything about any cruiselines cancelling, or even updating, their cruises for next weekend yet.

Hi everyone quick update.. last night our flight to Miami was cancelled ��.
We have decided enough is enough and cut our losses on this one.
We have taken the option to change to another cruise within 2 years. I booked a flight last last night to Rhodes and we fly out today for 10 nights..
Hope you all have a wonderful trip and someone please have a mojito for me ��
