Some cruise lines give a break to hurricane-affected customers


Cruise lines are offering a mix of refunds and future cruise credits (FCCs) for washed-out Hurricane Ian sailings, plus some lines have contingencies for cruisers who can’t sail due to hurricane hardship.

Virgin Voyages guests scheduled to take a future cruise who are unable to travel due to hurricane-related situations can request a future cruise credit and book a cruise for another date.
