A pregnant woman has taken to the Internet to blast her treatment at the hands of Disney Cruise Lines.
Family vlogger Emily Jackson and her family, including two toddlers, traveled from St. Louis to Miami for a planned six-day Disney Magic cruise to the Caribbean, only to be denied boarding because she was 25 weeks pregnant. It seems the cruise line has strict rules about women over 24 weeks traveling on the ship, regardless of whether they had a note from their doctor, which she had.
Jackson was certainly upset about the family missing out on the trip, but that isn’t what really upset her. She says in a vlog post that after her father asked staff to “hurry up” with their luggage, which was already on the ship, an armed officer arrived to escort the entire party of ten out of the building. Disney Cruises did not comment at press time.
- "They had the guy with the gun following us. They had the K-9 unit," Jackson told Miami’s WPLG. "So we then had to take both babies outside, wait almost two hours for our luggage, outside in the heat, and both babies are red-faced."
- Jackson insists she didn’t know about the cruise line’s pregnancy cut off, and actually understands their concerns. She’s more upset about how she was treated by the cruise line. Disney has now offered to refund the family’s cruise fare, but Jackson says their other expenses were not covered. Check out her vlog to the right.
