Customers may qualify for a change to alternate destinations, travel dates or a refund. Customers may make fee-waived changes to future reservations/tickets. However, changes need to be made by February 29, 2016.

Trip Tips - Where to go with no Zika?
« Reply #21 on: February 14, 2016, 12:08:42 AM »
Hi,

I'm looking to go to somewhere A) Close to USA, B) No Zika, C) Beachfront + Private Pool etc.

Looking at Bahamas, Bermuda, Florida, Aruba, St Barth, etc.
Can't find anything! There are great places in Caribbeans, like Banyan Tree, Viceroy, Mukal, Nizuc... I want something like that - somewhere where you get sand in the room. Are there any travel agents or anything?? Called Amex they're as good as calling Expedia

OMG!
I'm not going to argue with his science, but how much longer could it possible stay in the semen then in the blood
the CDC says up to ten weeks (thats not indefinite)

If a man has Zika and they determine that it lasts for 3 or even 6 months. Why would that not be a valid shayla?
