The Travel Industry Association reported today that cruise bookings are down a HUGE 95%. That could change, but right now people are erring on the side of caution.

If a cruise is cancelled by the cruise line, pre-paid passengers will get a full refund.

Check to see if it's cancelled, before cancelling yourself and taking a big $$ hit.

Not a chance I would go on a cruise right now. The virus being less of a concern than the being stuck on a plague ship scenario. Good luck whatever you decide to do.

If you are employed or others in your party are, can you afford risk losing your job over be delayed from work if you quarantined, regardless if you actually get sick or not? Also, babies are at risk of severe complications or death with things like this and I don't understand why you would even risk it.

Is the trip worth more than the risk of severe illness? See if you can get your trip moved or cancelled and refunded. You need to move quickly on your decision because if you wait too long, you may be out of refund options. Go next year or something. Flying and cruising are no go zones IMHO at this time unless it's an emergency.

I wouldn't go travel right now no matter what type of transport.
I hope you can get a refund

Diseases come and diseases go.

Funny... billions of people do that every day without ever going on a floating charnel house. Live your life, enjoy your family, be smart and don't take needless chances.

Sure, for the price of the cruise, they could by a smoker, have excellent meals, purchase toys/gifts for all family members.

To each their own.

Not me, but my dad, in April to Singapore and then Australia.

Well my parents have discussed it, and so far full-steam ahead.
In his 70's and just got a clean bill of health.

That could still change however.

But thinking the swine flu was a big scare, then we almost had no water in Cape Town and other family members also wondered, and we wondered - should they come? And they visited and all bearable.

Besides with our crumbling public health system and so forth, if it kicks in South Africa, I'm not sure whether being here is in any way preferable to those countries, from a treatment perspective.

At the end of March my family and I will be taking a cruise from Florida to Cozumel.


Since i live in fl i say you go and take the trip , just make sure the cruise returns to California and not fl. ;-)

Good luck, if you can get your money back i would plan on a different trip. Likely nothing will happen but why test it.

Since clearly the world has succumbed to cowardice, I will gladly accept any unwanted Cruise line tickets for those who's spines have turned to jelly and balls shriveled back up into their abdomen.

Spring break is coming up. Anybody want to donate their tickets?? If it makes one feel better, just call It population control and consider me a volunteer. Just laugh at me as I walk into my doom.

Now, send in the tickets please!

For myself? No worries.

For a kid, or other family? The answer is no.

Book a trip now, you may have the entire boat to yourself!!

Odds are good nothing will happen, but why take a chance with your family.

Someone I work with was mentioning wanting to go on a cruise for his week+ vacation. I looked at him like he was crazy and said, "now"?
I'm not as panicked about Kung-Flu as some, but common sense is a great aid to survival, or... at least... not being quarantined on a cruise ship for weeks that isn't allowed to dock anywhere, which is the #1 thing I'd worry about. Not the virus itself, but the quarantines.

Chances are low, but the risk is there.
Personally, I wouldn't go, but on the other hand, why let COVID-19 ruin your fun? If you're willing to run the risk of a quarantine, go. If not, stay home and enjoy yourselves. Go for a hike. Play board games.

Would you go? Does anyone have vacations upcoming vacations and what are your plans?
I can't advise you, but since you asked what I would do...… I wouldn't go. However, I wouldn't go on a cruise # in the best of circumstances.

Six months ago I had plans to fly to the U.S. to visit my Dad. I have put those plans on hold for now. It is the international airports and close proximity to careless strangers that gives me pause.


ETA: LOLOL! Cruise SHIP was what I meant to say. Freudian slip.

You literally on the first page said you have a policy of not traveling anywhere outside of the US.........

Now that someones erring on the side of not exposing themselves or family to illness given a very apparent large scale outbreak that has yet to reach its full potential, is a coward?

Theres an old saying about bravery and stupidity

If my theory is correct it won’t matter. Like most other flu it is my hope this epidemic will burn out as the weather warms, time will tell. You can always cancel at the last minute.



Heat doesnt seem to be a problem with how its behaving in Iran.
