Resolved Question:

I booked a trip to Hawaii and, after the Japanese earthquake, I want to cancel this trip.
On the cancellation policy nothing was mentioned about natural disaster. As everybody knows, Hawaii is really clause to Japan and the water isn't safe because of the nuclear radiation.
Do you think I have a chance to cancel this trip and get reimbursed?

Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.

I think you have an uphill battle. Hawaii is several thousand miles from Japan (its not very close at all...its a 6 hour plane ride) and there is no evidence of radiation in the water in or near hawaii

Sorry to have to bear bad news.
