Name Changes

A name change is the cancellation of one guest and the addition of a new guest on your booking. If the name change is done prior to your final payment date, you do not have air fare, and your booking is not under a restrictive fare, such as the Early Saver promotion or Pack & Go promotion, there is no fee to do a name change.

Once past your final payment date, for cruise only bookings under a non-restrictive fare, there is a $50 per person service fee charged per name change as long as an original guest remains on the booking. If an original guest does not remain on the booking, this is a full stateroom cancellation and cancellation penalties as well as prevailing rates will apply.

If your booking is under a restricted fare, please see the Terms and Conditions of your specific promotion to see if name changes are allowed. If name changes are not allowed, it will be necessary to remove the original guest and applicable penalties will be assessed.  A new deposit will be required for the new guest being added to the booking.  

If your booking has air fare, please see the below details about service fees charged for name changes:

  • Fly2Fun Flexible Air outside 60 days prior to sailing - no fee
  • Fly2Fun Flexible Air inside 60 days prior to sailing - $200 per person fee
  • Fly2Fun Restrictive Air outside/inside 60 days prior to sailing - non-refundable air
