Try to change your flight to the previous day or before then, the cost of a hotel room and transfers, will be far cheaper than finding another flight home. I don't think your insurers would be happy that you took such a risk. In any case, at least another day in New York, will leave you more relaxed to enjoy the start of the crossing without worrying about missing the cruise.

If you have booked as a package it would be the tour operators problem to sort out, but considering their solution is usually to fly you to the next port of call this is not a great deal of help. Having experienced US immigration and embarkation (chaotic and disorganised to say the least) I would strongly recommend you follow the previous writers advice and try to go out a day or so earlier.

If a large number of people on the flight are cunard passengers then the ship will hold, if its realistic for the ship to still reach its first port of call. I have been held in a 'home' port such as this for 6 hours and we still got to our first port of call on time. But that is a tight schedule and doesn't allow for much of a delay anywhere.

Travel Insurance is a MUST!

By Barbara Hopley

We all like our yearly or twice yearly holiday, some of us have more holidays & cruises than others BUT however many you take you MUST have travel insurance.I have heard so many horror stories about people who haven’t taken insurance or taken out the proper cover for their particular holiday.It can be quite costly to receive treatment on board a cruise ship or even be airlifted off and if you haven’t got insurance to cover these costs you would probably have to re-mortgage to ...
