Would you book a Med cruise now on Windstar?

Given the present world situation, would you book an October cruise on the Windsurf for the Mediterranean (Rome to Venice) now or would you wait a while? I'd prefer not to put down my money now but don't want to wait wait and find out I'm too late. Will the cruise line hoestly tell you how booked the cruise is?

Mist cruise lines that are STILL in the Med are offering a money back quarantee-- ie. they will offer a voucher in case you decide NOT to cruise the MED when the time comes- voucher is good for up to one year--

IF Windstar is offering a great deal, ask if they have this Cancellation Clause in their contract...If they do, then by all means book the cruise, as you will not lose anything....

Why not?

Just got back from Europe and nothing unusual to report. The French are still arrogant, the Germans still workaholics, the Swiss now have the America's cup [had dinner at the yacht club and saw it].

Although one should be vigilent, to let fear of "what ifs" control your life is not warranted.

Hi DMG,
We are booked on Windstar's Windsurf next month-Barcelona to Rome,then a week in Italy.Unless the cruiseline changes it's plans, we are still going.
Windstar's rates for past cruisers are great right now.I'll try to let you know how it went when we get back.

Kbella-

When you get back from the Barcelona to Rome itinerary, will you post a review of the ports and excursions you took--
I am wondering if WINDSURF has any better tour directors this year....

thanks!!

DMG- You need to call either your TA or the cruise line direct and ask specifically what they are offering as cancellation policy for Med cruises..
All lines differ....
