Royal Caribbean International Embarkation Changes and Sailing Date Change Policy

Updated August 5, 2020 - Royal Caribbean has made the decision to voluntarily suspend cruise operations through October 31, 2020 (excluding Australia sailings). Additionally, the remainder of the 2020 Europe season and the fall Transatlantic sailings have also been cancelled, along with an additional pause in our China itineraries through September 13, 2020

Whether you’re already booked on a cruise, or are thinking about it, Royal Caribbean wants you to Cruise with Confidence. That’s why Royal Caribbean will let you cancel any cruise that sets sail from now through April 30, 2022. Whether it’s a booking you already have or one you make right now through August 1, 2020, you’re covered. As long as you cancel at least 48 hours before your sail date, you’ll receive a Future Cruise Credit. The credit is valid through December 31, 2021 or 12 months from your original canceled sail date (whichever is longer) and can be used for any open sailings at the time of booking.

As of May 6, 2020 they have also added the new "Best Price Guarantee" and "Lift and Shift" options outlined below. If you opted into our Cruise with Confidence program before May 6, please learn more about that program here.

NEW! Best Price Guarantee - Spot a better price on your booked cruise? Our Best Price Guarantee lets you take advantage of a better price up to 48 hours before your sail date — just give us a call. You’ll receive the difference as a non-refundable onboard credit inside final payment or rate adjustment outside final payment.

NEW! Lift and Shift - Lift and Shift is for those guests simply wishing to move their existing booking to next year. For CWC guests that are ready to move to an alternative sail date in the following year, they’re happy to price protect the original pricing and/or promotion if the alternative sailing is the same itinerary, length, and stateroom category. However, the alternative sail date that the guest will be moved to, needs to be dated within 4 weeks (before or after) of the original sail date, but for the following year. For example, if you are moving from a July 30, 2020 sailing, you must move to a sailing that is the same itinerary, length, and stateroom category, and the sail date should be June 30, 2021 – August 30, 2021. To be eligible, guests must move their booking on or before August 1, 2020.

What you need to know

As long as you cancel at least 48 hours before your sail date, you’ll receive a Future Cruise Credit.

The Cruise with Confidence program covers sailings booked on or before August 1, 2020, that set sail on or before April 30, 2022.

Future Cruise Credits are valid through December 31, 2021 or 12 months from your original canceled sail date (whichever is longer) and can be used for any open sailings at the time of booking.
