Just give us your name and number and a brief description of your questions.
  • What if I want to make changes later on?

Name changes can be made anytime except winin 48 hours of the cruise date.  Upgrades can also be made anytime before the 48 hours limit if available. If you are not within the Cancellation Period you can change you sail date and all the funds that you have paid can be transferred to the new cruise.
