Last week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the extension of the No Sail Order for cruise ships through September 30, 2020.

In light of this cancellation, we are offering Guests who have paid their reservation in full the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing prior to March 31, 2022, or a full refund. The credit will be automatically added to their account. Once Guests have decided on an alternate sail date, they may contact their travel agent. Their agent may place a reservation on hold for them by applying this credit as a payment option when booking a new reservation online. Guests that have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far.
