Ok for me to skip cruise and wife and kid still go?

Hey All,

Looks like a medical issue may keep me off October 20 dream cruise. Any issue with my wife and daughter going without me?

Did you happen to purchase any travel insurance?

No insurance. I've cruised 14 or so times and never bought it. The money I saved more than makes up for the ~725 I would lose by not going. Schedule wise I don't want to reschedule anyway. I'm just hoping wife and daughter can go with a minimum of fuss.

I can't believe that there'd be a problem with them going without you. If you're inside your cancellation window that you'll not get back your part of the cruise. But someone not showing up would not necessarily raise any red flags. I'd probably call DCL in advance and let them know. Since you are probably the primary on the reservation, it might be good to change that to your wife.

No Problem taking them on her own, just write a letter outlining that you know she is on the cruise and your children are in her custody.

I take the kiddos to Disney solo all the time, we have a blast. We miss daddy but we have a good time anyway!

Edit, hit sent by accident not finished typing on phone

Another option they can do is change your name out I think their is a $55 charge and maybe your daughter can take a friend

I will be on the Dream in December with my two kids while DH stays home due to work schedule. I don't believe I need any additional documents besides the required BC/DL or passports. I think the only letters required are if a child has a different last name than the parent/guardian they are traveling with. So I don't believe your DW & DD should have any problems.

My sister had to back out of our cruise so we name changed her for grandma...just a thought, if you have a friend or relative who'd like a "free" vacation with your wife and kids.

Hey, thanks for the info. Didn't realize we could swap out for another passenger. Great idea.

Be aware at some point names changes have a fee. Not sure, but I think less than 30 days the fee applies (I think it's like $50.00)

My mom had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. No insurance. She sent a letter to DCL with a note from the Dr. And they sent her a credit for the next cruise. We were shocked; she only did it because the Dr told her to. What a great customer service gesture. Also win/win as she did not go alone and we took the next cruise much sooner than we would have otherwise. This was on our first trip with DCL and one of the many things that sold us on the whole experience.

Are you the lead passenger on the cruise? If it's in your name, that will be a problem from what I understand.
