I'm hoping you all can help me. I purchased a cruise for my dad and stepmom for my dad's 75th birthday/15 year wedding anniversary. It was to be the trip of a lifetime- an Oceania 12 day Mediterranean Cruise and Business Class air travel. I received a call from my dad last week after all final deposits were made, that he has experienced a tremendous amount of anxiety over the trip that he is unable to go. Concerns about the trip and medical care available to him while he is away from the US is overwhelming him. He had A-fib but had an ablation earlier in the year. He was last seen by a doctor for a follow up in June. We did not purchase insurance at the time of booking because I wanted to wait until the 60 days post last treatment had passed to purchase it. The Delta airline tickets were booked separate from the cruise. I knew at the time of purchase that they were non refundable. I mistakenly thought that while non refundable, since I purchased the tickets, I could get a credit if I canceled them. I learned that they are not transferable and only my dad and stepmom can use them. Unfortunately, I do not believe that my dad will be able to use the credit because of his concerns over travel and his medical issue. My husband and I have tried to resolve the issue with Delta but have not been successful. We were able to get the cruise transferred to us since we were the purchasers and there was language in the contract that allowed us to use it. However, we have had no such luck with the airline tickets. We are now trying to decide how to proceed, since we would have to purchase additional airline tickets to use the cruise. We have until tomorrow to decide whether we cancel the cruise and only lose 25% of the cost of the cruise (and 100% of the airline fare).
