The Royal Caribbean Group has announced that from the 1st of February, all bookings created by April 30th, 2021, on sailings on or before April 30th, 2022, guests will have the flexibility to cancel their cruise up to 48 hours prior to sailing and receive a full credit of the cruise fare paid. The future cruise credit can be used for a cruise on or before September 30th, 2022.
The cruise company will also continue to offer their “Best Price Guarantee,” where guests can choose to change the price and promotional offer on their reservation up to 48 hours before their cruise. The ability to “Lift and Shift” reservations will be available through January 31st, 2021.
In addition to easing concerns of booked guests, the policy enhances consumer confidence to schedule new bookings, knowing last-minute travel adjustments are allowed.
“As the world has changed, so have we. We want our guests to have peace of mind when booking a cruise, and extending this popular program gives them more freedom and flexibility to make informed decisions,” says Royal Caribbean Group chairman and CEO Richard Fain.
The program applies to all cruises with sailing dates on or before April 30th, 2022, and across the company’s global brands: Royal Caribbean International and Azamara. For Celebrity Cruises, the extension applies to sailings before May 4, 2022.
