  1. This is terrible news for the passengers like myself. We had plans before and after the cruise and they are all in jeopardy because this line thinks it can just move us from one ship and date to another with differing ports of call. Air plans , hotel and other travel arrangements are all affected not because of health reasons but to maximize profits. And to add insult to injury – they offer a $100 on board credit – how small of them. I ask all affect passengers to reject such self serving profits and insulting offers and stay away from HA for the future.
