Keeping an Eye on Hurricane Bill / Cruise Ship Impact
BE PREPARED CHECKLIST
- Monitor hurricane warnings before cruise
- Activate cell phone international roaming if necessary
- Make sure cruise line and travel agent have current contact information
- Make sure airline has current contact information
- Setup flight notifications with airline if possible
- Share your itinerary with family and friends
- Review your travel insurance policy for potential coverages
- Call travel insurance provider to answer any questions about coverage
- Provide emergency contact information to cruise line, travel agent, and airline
- Keep passport, credit card, and necessary medication with you while in port
It may be necessary for the cruise line to deviate from original published itinerary - this is their right under the contract rules. You want them to do this so that you are safe. Don't be upset if port changes are made - just make the best of your cruise vacation. I always say that any day on a cruise is better than a day at home.
