Changing cruise Q - American TA

Recommended Posts

We have booked an 11 day Caribbean cruise in December but had completely forgotten about Zika virus :( We are hoping to add to the family in the not too distant future so obviously we can’t go on the cruise. We’ve booked through a US travel agent and a non-refundable fare. My understanding of reading the small print is that we can change to a different cruise - am I right? The one we are looking to change to is less than we have already paid off the December one so I presume we lose the difference? Or can we use it to book drinks package or something?

 

I know my travel agent is best person to call I just won’t get a chance to this week with the time difference and commitments

Doesn't that say it only applies to women in a certain part of their pregnancy?

The non-refundable fare rules are any change to ship and/or sail date is considered a cancellation and you'll pay the $100/pp penalty for that change. Since you're not pregnant at this time or expect to become pregnant and be past the 24 week cutoff for sailing in December, you're probably going to have to pay the penalty.

 

I'm sorry.

I’m actually happy enough to pay a few hundred dollars and go on a different cruise rather than lose the 1300+ we’ve paid as deposit!

I just changed a cruise, and the new cruise has the non-refundable. My travel agent told me that the amount could be applied to any cruise within the next year. No biggie if you still plan on cruising.
