Book With Confidence - Cruise Line Policies

 

Our cruise line partners have introduced a number of new policies that allow flexibility should you wish to cancel or postpone your cruise holiday.  Some policies protect previously booked sailings and also provide comfort and flexibility for those who are considering when to book their next cruise. Below is a summary from some popular brands with useful reference links. In many cases, these new policies are temporary and are in place to provide extra reassurance as the travel landscape fluctuates.

For full terms and conditions, please visit the cruise lines’ websites. Restrictions apply.
