Q: I should go on a cruise for my honeymoon. Then my fiance – make that my former fiancee – walked out on me. I came home to the house that we both owned together, all his things away and a letter to explain anything, except that he does not want to marry find.

The reason I write is that I called Carnival to cancel the trip and I was told that even under the current circumstances, I do not have money back, except for taxes. Can you please help me with this? – Jennifer Tomes, San Antonio, Texas
A: I'm sorry this happened to you. On pain, short walk to your fiancé before your wedding day, you should not lose to mind your honeymoon.
Carnival is technically correct. Cancel your cruise directly before your sailing date means that you are only entitled to a refund of your taxes and port charges. Would your fiance went on within your notice period (usually about 80 days before your departure), then can you get a full refund, no questions asked.
I wish I could recommend something – anything – to prevent this from happening to other nervous brides out there. Oh, that's not a relationship advice column. Trust me, I'm sticking to it with better consumer protection organization. But I can not even all of them travel tips for your case. Not insured fiancé, the bail out of their weddings in the last minute was, so there really nothing you can do to avoid this problem could have.
I've dealt with a few cases similar to yours, and although technically the travel business is almost always good to deny his right to a refund, it is often shows some compassion.
I wish more companies showed their softer side. There are a number of events that can happen that we can not control. These include, but are not limited to, divorce, jury duty, job change, illness and unexpected death of a friend or relative. Insurance does not cover all these situations, unfortunately.
What is more, we expected that travel companies off the hook if they can not work a flight, or give us a confirmed space when the weather is bad or there is a mechanical problem. If a shipping company, it often takes a hard line smacks of double standards.
I asked Carnival to review your case. A representative told me a refund no question but that it will give you a $ 509 credit, the value of your ticket minus a $ 50 processing fee.
