Deposit/Payment Policy for Standard Groups

Published 03/11/2015 09:50 PM   |    Updated 07/19/2017 08:10 AM

A group must have the required deposit posted (initial or full) in order to avoid cancellation.

Travel Agency Group Booking

  • A $25 per person initial deposit due 60 days after the booking is made must be posted at the group level to secure the group request.
  • Full per person deposit is due for all berthed staterooms, including TBAs, high occupancy staterooms and suites
  • Otherwise, full per person deposit is due 120 days prior to sailing (for 2/3/4/5 day cruises) and 150 days prior to sailing (for 6/7/8/9 day cruises).
  • The standard final payment due dates apply.
  • Travel Agency checks and personal checks are not accepted within 30 days of sailing unless the balance due is less than $1000. 

Direct Group Booking

  • A full deposit per person is due upon making the group booking.
  • The standard final payment due dates apply.
  • Personal checks are not accepted within 30 days of sailing unless the balance due is less than $1000.

The system will automatically generate an emailed payment reminder to the agency informing them of any bookings that are short on deposit (initial or full) with a deadline for compliance. Failure to post the required funds by the designated date will result in automatic cancellation of your cabin or group request.
