Plane delayed 3 hours -- missed cruise - options?

Jump to last reply

I posted this another board - thought I would repost it on the cruise board to see if I could get any help for my friend -- I have a friend who is trying to take a Boston to Nova Soctia cruise -- their flight was delayed by 3 hours so they missed the ship in Boston -- they were told to go to Bal Harbor, Main and get on the ship, BUT they were not allowed on the ship, because they were told they could only get on in a foreign country --- Seeing the ship was destined to St. Johns, Canada -- they are on their way their now -- Meanwhile they have incurred expenses -- auto rental - hotels, meals, etc. -- I never heard of such a ruling - they said it was maritime law??? Also, how can they get reimbursed for all their expenses???

FYI they did not book the flight thru the cruise line - they made that arrangement separately.

I am trying to understand what is happening and how they could get reimbursed for their inconvenience.
