11. You Might Skip that Port
Have your heart set on a particular destination? It doesn’t happen often, but cruise ships sometimes have to change their itineraries on the fly. It’s usually due to inclement weather, mechanical difficulties, political instability or other issues that impact safety, so we don’t blame the cruise lines for this one. Just be aware that there will be no compensation or recourse for this change in plans. You’ll likely spend a free day at sea instead of exploring an alternate port of call.
