Booking deposit question

Recommended Posts

Currently looking at a sailing from LA next November. Looks like a great deal with airfare included from the east coast.

So my question is, if we book and pay the deposit, I have to wait until January to  get my vacation dates approved. If I can't get the dates, what do I lose if I have to cancel? Just the deposit? Can the deposit be used on another cruise? Any penalty for cancelling flights?

Thank you

Outside of 120 days from sailing, I don't think there are any penalties at all to cancel.  Your deposit, etc would be refunded.

There will be no penalties if you cancel more than 120 days out.  Flights aren't booked that far out so no penalty there either. If there is another cruise you want to take, yes, just call and they'll move your deposit to the new cruise, no worries at all.  I've had to do twice now. 

Enjoy your cruise.

I would always refer to NCL's cancellation policy since it does change.  If you base you decision on these comments, and NCL changes their policy, you may be out of luck.
