If you purchased travel insurance for your upcoming cruise, it's unlikely this is considered a covered reason to cancel and receive a full refund. The cancellation reason (a change in a tour itinerary) would not be listed as a covered trip cancellation reason for most travel insurance policies. The only type of coverage that may issue up to a 75% refund of your nonrefundable trip costs is Cancel for Any Reason coverage. To qualify, you would have needed to purchase this specific coverage within 10-21 days of your initial trip deposit and insure 100% of the nonrefundable costs toward your trip. The cancellation must also occur at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure date.
