State of Origin Rep
It's really not that simple. I had a $15k holiday planned beginning in 10 days ( San Fran and Hawaii , Mexico inc 15 day cruise).I think, if you take a cruise in the middle of a pandemic, you deserve what you get.
Same go's with international travelers.
I mean, how stupid do you have to be.
WE could not cancel due to covid because insurance doesn't cover pandemic. So we would have had to decide to take our chances, or drop most of the cost if we made the call.
We were really undecided because the US hadn't been affected at the time we were still eligible for any type of part refund but we were also aware how fast things were developing.
Luckily Princess offered 100% money back plus a 25% future cruise credit because they made the cancellation call, not us.
We have received a full refund of our San Fran accommodation for the same reason but as recently as a week ago we had accepted that we had lost that .
Cuntas Airlines are the only ones we are going to lose $$ to. They cancelled our flight, not us, while we had an open booking but refused to give us a full refund. Best we could do was put our fares into suspension but could only use them in 1 purchase and by the end of October this year or pay a $400 cancellation fee per ticket.
I can understand why people made those decisions because for most of them they were locked in and covid was somewhere overseas at decision time.
