We are traveling with another family due to sail 3/14.  They are considering cancelling for fear of the virus.  We are going but was just curious if they can get their money back or apply to future sailing 13 days from sail date?  I think it’s crazy to not go... no way to live life.  Just curious carnivals stance on this

They are only give refunds if you are actually sick according to the TMZ article not for fear.  I have not seen a formal communication from Carnival as of yet.

Right that’s how I read that.  If I show up with a cold and they deny boarding , refund.  Not just because someone is panicked.  Personally I think it’s overblown at this point.  We’re in Florida going to Mexico.

I’m curious as to what will happen to the Mediterranean cruises that are up coming. We are booked for the end of May but I’m thinking there will be a travel ban by then with the rate of new cases in Italy.

If the cruise line cancels I’m sure a refund is coming.  It’s the ones that aren’t affected and people freak out close to sailing im

curious.  Two weeks to go. No reason not to sail

And I thought I was the only one who didn't know what cax is. :classic_laugh:

To the original poster:  I talked to our PVP today, she says Carnival is handling this on a case by case basis.  If your friends decide to cancel, I would have them call whoever they booked with, you never know.  I doubt they will refund, but worth a try.

Each person has to make up their own mind about cruising/flying, etc. right now!

We're not cruising until June mainly because of the virus, that's the right decision for us, others think differently.

We have plenty of offers, but they'll be available next year when this calms down! That's our thinking for us! 

BTW we have insurance for June, and will cancel if this virus is still showing up on cruise ships! 

Whatever your decision, stay healthy!

I don't want to belittle fears. Heck, I think about the family reunion we're having at my house this weekend and the 40 people that are flying or driving in from out of state. If one person is sick, we're all sick and many of us are over 60 years old. So, again, I don't want to belittle any fears. Yet, we have flu pandemics every few years and this one is no different, is it?  Keep your wits about you, folks!

We are booked for a 3/14 sail date. My only reason to not sail is the fear of a quarantine. Not a fear of the virus. But actually not being allowed off the ship on debarkation day because one random person has a fever.
