Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `jetpack` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Credit Card Travel Protection for Cruises

My wife and I take a cruise every year or two, so we read this MileCards blog post with interest.

http://milecards.com/1588427774/credit-card-cruise-insurance-benefit/

The post describes automatic trip coverage from various credit cards, as well as separate cruise insurance that is available.

Some common reasons why you might need to cancel a prepaid cruise are described and analyzed, including “you lose your job” and “you get ill before / during the cruise” and “your flight arrives late.”

Of course, it is slightly possible that your cruise ship will sail into a storm, but that is rare.
