Two years ago my wife and I booked a Mexican Riviera Cruise for $1800. We live in Alaska and planned it during our Pastoral vacation dates, & a late 20th anniversary. Paid 1/2 a year in advance and the remainder when due. A week before the cruise Mexico was reacting to swine-flu. 3 days before the sail date Carnival cancelled the trip and offered a boat to depart Long Beach and sit in the ocean off of SF, Ca. then return. We had hoped for an adventure. Carnival would not even discuss a refund or allowance for rebooking. Said it is spelled out within their webpage and all funds are forfiet without liability on thier part. I realize they hate to loose money on such things, but that is what insurance is for....rather they took ours. PS we had purchased insurance via AK Air which refused to pay because the circumstances were not specifically detailed in their liability. Pastor Michael Hicks; Kasilof AK. 907 394-1615
