With Tropical Storm Isaac well off the coast of South Florida, it comes time to wonder what compensation cruise lines with provide the passengers with. Allure of the Seas’ voyage was extended from a seven-night sailing to a nine-night sailing because Port Everglades was closed. Carnival Valor was also stuck at sea for one extra day with Miami being closed. Typically as a gesture of goodwill the cruise lines will take care of the passengers in these circumstances.

Here’s what we have so far:


Outbound guests on the Carnival Valor will receive a two-day pro-rated refund of their cruise fare, onboard credit for $50.00  per person, refund of government fees and taxes for Key West,  onboard credit for $25.00 per person (meal allowance), and gratuity adjustment for Sunday and Monday.

Guests on the Carnival Imagination will receive one-day pro-rated refund of your cruise fare, onboard credit for 25.00 USD per person (meal allowance) and gratuity adjustment today.

Royal Caribbean

CruiseCritic released the Allure of the Seas compensation as it arrives on Tuesday morning (only sailing a five-night outbound sailing). Guests in balcony, inside, and oceanview staterooms will receive $650 on board credit (more for suite guests), if guests needed a hotel room – Royal Caribbean flipped the bill, covered airline change fees, $100 to cover meals for the two days and 10% off a future cruise.

Norwegian Cruise Line

Still waiting to hear if any compensation was offered to guests sailing on the four-night cruise aboard Norwegian Sky on Monday.

We’ll update as we hear more details.
