Terms and Conditions

BOOK LATER: A nonrefundable deposit of $200 per stateroom and full names of each guest are required at time of booking. Additional deposits may be required when you select your ship and sail date depending on the type of stateroom/suite selected and number of passengers.  All such deposits are nonrefundable. Ship and sail date are not selected at time of booking, but must be selected within one year otherwise booking will expire and your deposit will be forfeited. Booking does not guarantee stateroom or sailing availability or cruise price until reservation is converted to a confirmed booking on a specific ship and sail date. If you select a ship and sail date within two months after booking, you will be eligible for up to $600 in savings per stateroom or suite, depending on stateroom category and cruise length chosen.  If you select a ship and sail date after two months, you will not be eligible for these savings but your deposit will be applied to the future cruise if ship and sail date are selected within one year. Once converted to a confirmed booking (by picking your ship and sail date), the terms for Nonrefundable Deposit Bookings, described below under “Book Now,” shall apply. BOOK NOW: IF YOU BOOK A NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT FARE RATE (A “NDN BOOKING”), YOUR MINIMUM DEPOSIT WILL BE NONREFUNDABLE. CHANGES FOR NDN BOOKINGS : For Guests who make a NDN Booking, changes made during the first two (2) months shall not be subject to a change fee. Changes made to the ship or sail date after two (2) months shall be subject to a change fee (currently $100 per person but subject to adjustment without notice). CANCELLATIONS FOR NDN BOOKINGS: If the guest cancels a NDN Booking prior to the final payment due date, the cancellation terms applicable to your booking (which may vary from country to country) will apply.   For NDN Junior Suite and below bookings with a reduced deposit of $100 per person, the reduced deposit will be forfeited and no Future Cruise Credit (“FCC”) will be issued.  If additional payments have been made on a NDN reduced deposit booking to fulfil the standard minimum required deposit and the booking is cancelled prior to the final payment due date, an FCC will be issued for the minimum deposit less the $100 per person service fee in countries where FCCs are offered.1  For NDN Grand Suite and above Bookings, Royal Caribbean will issue an FCC to the guest named on the cancelled NRD Booking in countries where FCCs are offered.  FCCs expire 12 months after issued and shall be issued in an amount equal to the nonrefundable deposit paid minus a $100 per person service fee.  No FCC will be issued if the nonrefundable deposit amount is $100 or less. NEXTCRUISE DOLLARS OFF AND OBC PROMOTION: Guests who make a NDN Booking are eligible for our NextCruise dollars off promotion or Future Onboard Credit (up to $600 per stateroom depending on cruise length and type of stateroom/suite). Guests who select our refundable fare option are eligible for a Future Onboard Credit (up to $150 per stateroom depending on length of voyage and type of stateroom.) FOR ALL NEXTCRUISE BOOKINGS:  The special promotional offer that you received as part of your NextCruise Booking (the “Special Promotional Offer”) will adjust if you make any changes to a confirmed booking.  In lieu of that Special Promotional Offer, your cruise would be booked at a prevailing rate available in your country as of the date of your change. A NextCruise Booking may be combined with certain groups and require a full deposit and possible loss of your promotional offer and/or Onboard Credit offer. Guests must be 21 years of age or older and sailing on a Royal Caribbean International cruise, or participating in an authorized day visit onboard, at the time of booking in order to take advantage of our NextCruise program. Limits on the number of NextCruise bookings apply. NextCruise cannot be used for Travel Agent resale. Visit your NextCruise Sales Team onboard for full Terms and Conditions and/or visit the Royal Caribbean website in your country of residence. Nonrefundable deposits may not be permitted in certain countries of residence.  In that event, the NDN Booking shall be converted to a refundable deposit booking program and the special NextCruise offers applicable to refundable deposit bookings shall apply in lieu of the NextCruise offer selected by the consumer. FCCs are not offered in all countries.  In countries where FCCs are not offered, the deposit would be forfeited and no FCC will be issued.
