Program Summary:

Royal Caribbean’s non- refundable deposit program makes business stronger, smarter, and more efficient. With benefits for both travel partners and clients, this program is a win-win for all parties.


Key Points

  • The Non-Refundable Deposit fare will default as the Best Rate whenever available since it will always be priced lower than the regular brand promotion.
  • The fare identifier “NRD” will be incorporated as part of the name to indicate that it is the Non-Refundable Deposit Program.
  • When creating a Non-Refundable Deposit reservation, you must inform your client that they are booked on a Non-Refundable Deposit fare. It is also important that you advise that, should a ship/sail date change occur, the reservation will incur a $100 per person change fee per adjustment.
  • When marketing Non-Refundable Deposit fares, it’s imperative that specific disclosures appear on the advertisement.  See program FAQs for details.
  • Upon cancellation of a Non-Refundable Deposit reservation, the deposit amount is not refundable at any point and will be withheld in-full.


Terms and Conditions

Full Terms and Conditions

A booking made under the non-refundable deposit cruise fare rate (an “NRD Booking”) requires the payment of a non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. The deposit is not refundable at any time after it has been paid. Payment of full deposit and full name are required for each guest at the time of booking. Deposit made toward Guarantees and Grand Suites and higher categories are non-refundable and subject to NRD Booking terms.

If the guest cancels an NRD Booking prior to the final payment due date, the cancellation terms of the cruise ticket contract apply, and Royal Caribbean will issue a future cruise credit in the amount of the deposit paid minus a $100USD per person service fee to the guest named on the cancelled NRD Booking (the “FCC”). The FCC is applicable only towards the purchase of a Royal Caribbean cruise and expires 12-months after the issue date (the “Expiration Date”). Any amount remaining after the Expiration Date will be void and forfeited. The FCC is non-transferable, non-refundable, and not redeemable for any other form of compensation, credit, or cash. For NRD Bookings that require a deposit of $100USD or less, no FCC or any other compensation or credit of any kind will be issued.

Each time the guest changes the ship or sail date of an NRD Booking prior to the final payment due date, payments made towards the NRD Booking will be applied to the balance of the modified booking and a $100USD per person service fee will be charged to the modified booking.
