If a cruise line changes their itinerary what are your options?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, this is the first time I have posted on the cruise forum as I am new to cruising but wonder if any of you experienced cruisers can help me with this.

I booked a cruise with Costa last October leaving October 2011 from Venice and calling at Alexandria for 2 nights and Ashdod in Israel for Jerusalem. The reason I picked this cruise was it visited these 2 destinations and did not go to Turkey (I visited Istanbul and Ephesus last year).

I have just been contacted by the company I booked through to say that Costa had cancelled all stops in the middle east for 2011 and produced a new itinerary. The cruise now stops in Piraeus for Athens, Izmir for Ephesus and another place in Turkey. They have also changed the stop in Santorini for Rhodes.

I no longer want to take this cruise as I have been to all the new stops on the new itinerary and have no wish to return. I have been informed that if I cancel I will lose my deposit or I can transfer to another cruise for a small administration fee.

The deposit is not huge but Costa changed the itinerary, surly I am entitled to a full refund or does one have to accept that a cruise company has the right to change destinations as they see fit.

I would be interested in your thoughts on this before I spend a lot of anguish trying to fight this with Costa.

Thank you
