Hi! My hubby Tim is a vacation cigar-smoker, too. As a matter of fact, I was going to get him a couple to take on the cruise when I was in Key West a few weeks ago, but I got so overwhelmed by the selection that I left without buying any. If you have any recommendations, I could still run by our local tobacco shop. He'd love to have someone to share a chat and a cigar. You and Sonia are coming to the Sessions party, right?

Trip insurance?

Does anyone on here have any experience with the Trip insurance when there is a non-traveling family member sick?

My mother was recently diagnosed with cancer and has been in the hospital for 3 weeks. She was improving but there have been some setbacks in the last couple of days. So we are not sure if we are going to be able to go on the cruise. (My mother really wants us to go because she is a huge tinkerbell fan and has gone by the name Tinker since she was 14.)

Anyway, I can't tell from the trip insurance document if this qualifies for a refund because I think by their rules, we would have had to cancel within 3 days of her going into the hospital.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Sorry to hear this. I unfortunately do not know the answer. Maybe ask this on the cruise line board, not just the meets. Someone should know this, there are many travel agents on the boards that might know.

If you are in FE#2 and see a room with Target bags hanging from the fish, you'll know what happened...

99 cent store has Mickey/Minnie bags that are a great size for a FE! I bought one and put our names on it with fabric paint. Easy and quick!
Just in case you end up not getting yours from Etsy.

They are all different, I would call and ask. Sometimes they will refund for just one person (you) to stay home...sometimes it is for your entire group. It doesn't hurt to call and see.
And I'm so sorry to hear about your mom being sick, hope it all works out okay.

I am so sorry to hear this. I don't have an an answer for you, but I will be thinking of your family and hoping for the best outcome both for the trip and with her diagnosis.

Great; we will be looking forward to seeing you at one or both events!

DCL did give me the line about one person in the group having to host and take responsibility for the Sessions bar bill. I was like, "Umm...no. We can pre-book 49 people at $20 a pop and you can bill us separately, or we'll meet in the Promenade Lounge and maybe spend half that amount of money. Your call."

They have been great ever since, but the initial negotiations were tricky. Thanks for the cigar tips!

Aww - thanks! I think I have come up with a back-up plan, but if I can't make it work you might all end up with magnets! :-)
