Should I cancel my March 16th dive trip to the Maldives?

I was planning to go scuba diving in the Maldives for a week and a half starting on March 16. With the recent unrest there I'm wondering if I should cancel. Unfortunately the trip is soon enough that under the cancellation policy I would forfeit the entire cost of the trip ($2K+). Remains to be seen if the tour company will offer any accomodations or exceptions in light of this week's events.
Anyone have any insight? It would be a boat trip, with two nights on land (one at a resort, which I have yet to book; the other on the boat after it docks). Some news accounts seem to suggest that tourists are insulated from the events, but on the other hand the situation on the mainland does sound pretty serious.
Suggestions for what to do if the tour company refuses to give me back any of my money also welcome.
