Turn disappointment into delight with a spontaneous escape to Palm Springs or Los Angeles.

There’s nothing quite like the excitement of a pending cruise vacation. But what happens when your eagerly-awaited voyage is suddenly canceled? While it’s normal to feel disappointed, there’s a silver lining to this unexpected change in plans. Transform your dashed cruise dreams into a sun-drenched reality with a last-minute getaway to Palm Springs or Los Angeles.

Just this week, we were able to place a family in our Sunsplash home in Palm Springs last minute due to a cruise being canceled. We wanted to dive into why these cancellations happen, and how to turn the bad news upside down, with Open Air Homes of course! 

Why Cruises Get Canceled

Cruise cancellations, though rare, can occur for various reasons: severe weather conditions, mechanical issues, or health concerns like outbreaks. When your sea adventure is unexpectedly docked, it’s natural to seek an alternative that matches the excitement and relaxation you were anticipating.
