Get the Insurance!!!!

Just recommending you buy the trip insurance! We had a cruise scheduled for April but our daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia 3 days ago and when we called to ask if there was special consideration for a child with cancer regarding a refund we were told a big NO. It also didn't seem to matter that we have gone on 5 previous Disney Cruises and yearly spend thousands of dollars on Disney parks and products. Get the insurance or you may be disappointed!!!

Oh, my, I am so sorry about your daughter..I will lift her in prayer for all of you..can you just postpone the trip? I thought if you cancelled in so many days before the actual date you would get most of your money back..I would call again..again, I am so sorry to hear your sad news...

Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you. I am sure the cruise is secondary in any thought, but glad it is not "salt in the wound.". We have close friends on the other side of the leukemia diagnosis, the progress they have made in treating this amazing. Take care -best prayers and wishes that you will be doing a celebratory cruise next year at this time.

Prayers for your daughter and your family. I cancelled our cruise today scheduled to leave on Saturday. Since we are in the 14 day range we aren't getting any of the fare back from Disney, but we will be getting the taxes and the pre-paid gratuities refunded back to our credit card. There is a refund schedule so you should get some of your fare back. Good luck and good health to your daughter.

I am so very sorry. These things happen so fast. My 18 month old nephew was diagnosed with cancer a month ago. Prayers and good thoughts for your daughter.

Yes, always get insurance.

This must be hard time for you but I would really suggest calling Disney again. I can guarantee you that at minimum they will move ur cruise to a future date which you can change later. I know this has been done may times in the past and all they will ask you is a medical note from the doctor. You may just have reached a CM who does not know. Disney has been great to us in the past and they are usually very compassionate.

I agree. We had to cancel a cruise in December the week before we left as my mother was admitted to hospital. Our TA got our cruise moved for us with a $150 fee per person. Losing $300 to move the cruise was far better than losing $2600ish. Talk to someone else at Disney. A lot of the time it depends on the person you talk to.

That is just awful news. But I have to ask, why cancel? It will be a great break from the treatment. Talk to you doctor befor canceling.

So sorry. Hope things work out. I would think Disney would let you move to a future cruise.
