Passenger Protection

You may purchase our Passenger Cancellation Protection Plan at a cost of $15 pp for one-way cruises, $20 pp for two-night cruises and $49 pp for cruise & stay packages. All persons on the reservation must select the same option. The Passengers Cancellation Protection Plan will provide the purchaser with a future credit for the amount you are penalized (less the cost of the Protection Plan. In the event that your traveling companion still sails in the stateroom then the single supplement will also be deducted from the benefit). The Plan allows you to cancel for any reason as long as we are notified immediately upon the knowledge of the cancellation and prior to the scheduled departure date. The credit will be valid up to one year from the date of your scheduled cruise.
