Our insurance says only if government says we can't travel or the cruise is cancelled? All the other tours and hotels were booked independently so we have to just wait I think? ☹
Unfortunately I think you're right, it's "wait and see" which is much easier said than done. American T&Cs are much better than ours when it comes to cancelling I agree. I love Cruisecritic, it's like the Dibb at sea! I really hope you hear something concrete soon, so much planning (and money) goes into these wonderful trips, the same as a Disney holiday. Have you spoken to Celebrity?

I have friends out in HK at the moment, they are fine, just wearing the masks.
My son and his girlfriend are visiting from the UK, we have just got them face masks, and hand sanitiser. She has been in touch with family back in China, they dont seem to be overly worried. They are just waiting on any government updates as to whether their school will be re opening.

Got some face masks from Japan last year on holiday as a joke, think I will go and find them , we were told they wear face masks in Japan to contain there germs and not spread them about . Had a parcel arrive today from China today got it opened quickly and got the packaging in the bin and scrubbed my hands my husband thought I was nuts , got another parcel on its way will have to stop ordering from China .

What is more scary about this virus is the fact it is contagious when you have no symptoms, another case confirmed in California today. How many people did he infect before he got symptoms.

Celebrity are continuing as normal at the moment, they just say they are monitoring the situation? The ship we are on is currently in HK for a 2 night stay, according to those on it they are continuing with tours but giving out masks and hand sanitizer! 😬

HK Disneyland has closed now too! ☹

Its about time they banned these wet markets in China and people gouging down on things we were never meant to eat. Seems most of these come from bats for some reason, and they say this one spread from a bat, to someone in China eating a snake from a wet market. Apparently SARS came from a similar market also. Africa is another source- Ebola came from a bat, which infected gorillas which was then eaten as bush meat.
Its clear that tucking into wild and exotic animals in unsanitary conditions is a major health risk - for many more than those eating.
