Change Or Transfer Of Booking

With regard to changes of date, persons in the booking, or transfers of the booking to another party…

Standard Rate

Terms will be applied as per section 9 of our Booking Terms & Conditions 

PLEASE NOTE: When an existing booking with us is amended and departure dates postponed, we reserve the right to hold existing deposits paid against the amended booking without making cash refunds. All deposits held will be honoured against the amended booking.

Master Saver Rate

If you wish to change any part of your booking after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you must inform us in writing as soon as possible. This should be done by the first named person on the booking.

Whilst we will do our best to assist, we cannot always guarantee that we will be able to meet your requested change based on our occupancy and operational schedules. Where we can meet a request, all changes will be made without change fees up to 60 days prior to departure for the first amendment. Should other date or vessel changes occur, they will incur a 50 USD per person change fee.

*Should you wish to change dates or vessels, then the new date must be equal or beyond the date in the initial booking. Any increases in price from the original booking value will be added to the amended booking.
