First, Oberammergau postponed it's Passion Play to 2022.
Then, our tour operator for a week in Switzerland cancelled.
We're left with tickets on Delta (6/12-7/5) - fees not yet waived.

I guess we could cobble something together, if we're allowed to go.

We have scheduled a trip to Europe almost a year in advance. Or plan is to fly into Rome and spend five days at the Hilton Rome Cavalie. Then we embark on a nine day Greek Island Cruise. United Airlines, Hilton, and Royal Caribbean have posted their policies regarding the Corona virus epidemic. They have all advised me to wait and see what happens. This may all be over by August. If not, we should be able to reschedule, obtain a refund, o a credit towards future trips. I had to cancel a trip to San Antonio this week due to Covid-19. Hilton Honors gave me back all my points immediately.

We gave a trip scheduled for late May to the Palm Beaches in Florida. United would have given me a complete refund if the flight were prior to April 20, 2020. Since the flight will be in May, I was advised to wait and see what happens. Interval International has been much more difficult to deal with. The trip insurance does no cover cancellations due to epidemics according to the website. However, I also purchased Esure, so we can retrade up to three times if needed.

Eureka Springs, Arkansa, has an excellent passion play. Unfortunately, we did not have time to see it because we were. Only there a few hours as a side trip from Branson.

Our 8/23 cruise is scheduled for a port stop in Lisbon. I've booked a private tour to Sintra that day, since my DH & I have previously visited the city in addition to a wonderful timeshare week at Four Seasons Vilamoura in the Algarve. Doubt that the cruise will be a go. As Talent312 has posted, perhaps we can cobble something together out of our flights booked to CPH to start the cruise, an EasyJet flight from cruise end out of BCN to Bordeaux (could forgo that flight as cost was negligible) and our return home from CDG after a week at Royal Regency.

we're canceling 9/1 trip with 4 sets of friends to Italy. Booked on FF miles. Will keep tickets for now. Hoping AA waives redeposit fee. Friends were about to book $$$ tickets to join us. Luckily, they held off. good luck. I bet Delta will extend fee waivers.
