    xnavyss got a reaction from ctwilliams in Advice on a Transatlantic Cruise from Florida and to Florida   
    Advice and Suggestions Please.   We are Seniors who live in Florida    Is there a way to do a Transatlantic or a Repositioning Cruise out of Florida and take a cruise back to Florida?  If so, we would only want a minimum layover.  
    Thanks

    Thanks Everyone
    What I did not mention.  This cruise(s)  is a back to back ( 9 total days ) and we were able to use a $400.00  Casino Certificates on the first cruise and a $500.00 Casino Certificate on the 2nd part of the back to back.
    She does want to go. 
    Me, the loss of the Casino Certificates does not matter.  Her enjoyment means more.

    August 8, 2020 Cruise ( if there is one ) and wife’s surgery.
     Wife had an Ileostomy ( her entire colon was removed ) the end of January which now requires her to wear an Ostomy Bag.
    The Doctor told her, they might be able to do a reversal surgery and reconnect to the rectum, so that she would not have to wear an Ostomy Bag. 
     My question.
     If they are able to do the reversal surgery, it would be done the middle of July.  The hospital stay would be about 5 days and the recovery is normally about 2 to 3 weeks. 
     Wife really wants to go on the Cruise.
     Would you Go on the cruise – If there is one ?
     Would you Cancel ?
     Opinions Please

    Curiosity Question
    How many Royal Luggage Tags do you put on each piece of luggage ?
    I have been putting two on each bag ( one on the top and one on the side ) as a precaution in case one of them fall off.

    First let me Say.    We Will Not Go On A Cruise WITHOUT INSURANCE
     
    We are Senior’s 67 and 66, I am Retired Military and we are Florida Residents
     
    Should we buy travel insurance when we purchase the cruise because of pre-existing conditions ? 
     
    Should we wait until we are sure of the cruise so that we can cancel and not lose out on the money for the insurance ?
     
    This question comes to mind because.  We are going on the Harmony of the Seas on April 28, 2019.  We have Travel Insurance.  The price of our cruise dropped $450.00 and I am being told, nothing can be done since we are past final payment and every cabin is now booked so we are unable to upgrade. We are also about to purchase another cruise.
     
    BACKGROUND
     
    About five years ago, my wife woke me up saying I just had a seizure.  I told her, I was fine and went back to sleep.  After she left for work, I started feeling strange and drove myself to hospital.  They did an MRI and found a fairly large non-cancer meningioma tumor.  They were able to remove most of the tumor.
     
    Seven months after that, and no driving for six months, I drove the car to an Auto Repair Shop.  While they were working on car, I had a seizure and woke up in the Hospital.  There was a fluid buildup where the tumor was removed and they had to do another brain surgery.
     
    Three years ago, the wife and I are driving to Ft. Lauderdale for a cruise on the Oasis of the Seas, and I am feeling sick, unable to urinate and feeling like I have the flu and it was flu season.  So, being stubborn and against my wife’s advice to see a doctor, I insist on getting on the ship.  Well, as soon as all hands drill is done, I go down to sickbay (Medical) and the doctor gives me some pills to take and tells me to go up to the cabin and rest.  Later that night, I am worse and go back down to medical.  That is about the last thing I remembered for a while.  I was diagnosed with chronic urinary sepsis.
     
    The Ship had to get a Helicopter and I was taken to a Hospital in Santiago. I was there for almost three weeks and then another Air Ambulance to Tallahassee, Florida where I spent 3 more weeks at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and transferred to a Rehab facility for another 4 weeks.  They said I was in bad shape and lucky to be alive.  Total bill was over $400,000.00.  Boy was I glad I had Insurance. 
     
     
    Then a week before Christmas 2017, I am having severe pain in my chest.  Go to hospital and they do a catheterization.  They said there was blockage but not severe enough for them to do anything.
     
    Because of my medical history, of course I will not go on a cruise without insurance.
     
    But the question comes up.  When should I get the insurance and where.
     Thanks
