No other vacation option will offer you the assurance of 92–100% vaccination rates, pre-embarkation testing, and the transparency of sharing those test results. Plus, the onboard experience is better than ever! With less people on board and more crew ready to serve your every need, the customer service experience is at an all-time high.

Know Before You Go
Health and Safety Requirements

The cruise line safety requirements create the safest environment for your vacation and are continually being evaluated and updated as public health standards evolve. Make sure to check out our Help Center and view the policies below for more information specific to each cruise line, ship, and destination. Cruise lines reserve the right to make changes to their protocols at any time, and it is your responsibility to review the latest health requirements issued by the cruise line before you board your cruise.

Payment and Cancellation Flexibility

Most cruise lines have relaxed their payment and cancellation policies to give you more flexibility when planning your vacation. Policies vary by cruise line, but many include the ability to cancel up to 48 hours prior to departure, full refunds if you cancel within a certain timeframe, and Future Cruise Credits (FCCs) for the full price of your original cruise (or higher) that can be used toward a different sailing.
