Geneva Potts is giving us a real story about her family vacation, take a listen to her journey. My last family vacation was in July 2019 on one of my favorite cruise ships. My next family cruise was booked and scheduled by August 1, less than a month after coming back. Our excursions were planned and booked as well; we were all set for our 2020 family vacation. Then COVID hit the world and cruise lines started canceling sailings. Sure enough, my cruise was canceled. We rebooked in April for an August cruise date. The new ship, new locations but that was ok. Called the airlines canceled flights and booked new ones. We are all set until the cruise line cancels our new cruise.
Thinking we would get ahead of this thing, we rebooked, this time for December. We will now take a Christmas cruise. We are again all booked, and flights changed for a second time. Luckily, there were no change fees because of COVID. Satisfied with our new accommodations, we relaxed until the cruise line canceled all remaining 2020 cruises. We are now booked for July 2021.
In the event cruises are canceled for July 2021, we have a few backup plans.
1. All-Inclusive Resort in Cancun, Mexico
2. Vieques, Puerto Rico
3. Carolina Beach, NC
Have you thought about what you will do if your back up vacation is canceled in 2021? If not, you may want to go ahead and start making those new back up plans. Thanks, Geneva for your story.
