Well if any of you are watching the news, you will notice that there is quite a big hub-bub about the swine flu. It started in Mexico, killing a lot of people, and it has moved and has been found in several states in the U.S. and across the world. All the cases in the U.S. so far have been minor and no one has died, but it's pretty bad in Mexico and schools are cancelled and people are wearing masks and staying inside. It's pretty crazy and being that Dan and I are scheduled to go on a Mexican cruise in about 12 days, it has gotten me just a bit worried.
I don't want to overreact or anything, but it is a cause for concern and we still want to go on our cruise and do fun shore excursions in Mexico! I have done a lot of research and asked our travel agent about it and for now, U.S. officials aren't saying not to go to Mexico. That could change, and it's still risky, but I'm not sure what will happen now! Hopefully things get better and it's not a big deal for us to go, but it still worries me!
Our cruise is offering to waive our cancellation fee if we re-book another cruise within the year. And our flight is waiving cancellation fees as well. So that is somewhat of a relief that if we couldn't go, we could still go another time or not lose money over it. But still, we really have been looking forward to this for so long and we can't wait! I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens, but for today, we are still headed to Mexico!!
