Book with Confidence
Change of plans? No problem. Most cruise lines have relaxed their payment and cancellation policies, giving 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
Future Cruise Credits (FCC) for the full price of your original cruise (or higher) that can be used toward a different sailing

Cruise with Confidence
You deserve to be worry-free while you’re at sea. That’s why cruise lines are working with the CDC to implement stringent new measures on top of their already robust protocols to keep everyone — both guests and crew — safe while at sea and in port. Some cruise lines have even been working together to establish a panel of doctors, scientists, and health specialists to help guide these new measures. A few health and safety measures you can expect include:

Pre-embarkation health screenings, which can include thermal scans and temperature checks, for guests and crew
Enhanced sanitation measures of shared ship spaces, staterooms, and terminals
Additional medical staff and equipment on board


We know you have a lot of questions, like what your onboard experience will look like and how you will be able to visit different ports. These new measures are a work in progress, so check back often and we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
