Cruise Cancellation and Financial Reimbursements:

The Federal Maritime Commission cannot order a cruise line to reimburse passengers for cruise cancellations or to pay claims for injuries or fatal accidents. However, to the extent they are able, Commission staff will try to assist individual consumers who are having trouble obtaining financial settlements in these areas. The consumer may have to initiate action on his or her own behalf against the cruise line.
