Once you have submitted your enquiry through our website, you will receive a “CR” reference number and a bounce back email to the email address provided. This reference number is confirmation we have received your enquiry and we will come back to you shortly with the details of your booking – please be aware, this is not a confirmation and is only a summary of your booking request. We will hold the cabin in your name “for up to 5 days” as controlled by the cruise line themselves. On some cruises, the payment may be required on the day of booking or within 1-5 days of making the booking as controlled by the cruise line.

Once we have held a cabin, we will contact you via phone or email, to advise of availability and confirm the price and details. A booking is confirmed when you have been received an email confirmation notice and should you wish to proceed, we will provide you with our payment options to make your deposit payment (or full payment if the cruise is within 90 days). Your payment then becomes subject to the cancellation policy of the cruise line and Cruise Republic. These are stated in the terms and conditions. When your booking has been confirmed with a deposit payment we will send you your cruise booking number with the cruise line. Once you receive your confirmation, please check your details carefully and notify us immediately if there are any incorrect details, as it may not be possible to make changes at a later date without incurring a penalty. If you are booking via phone, please first make sure you have read the terms and conditions. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the customer to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website.

Information disclosure

In booking on/via this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Cruise Ship company/operator.

Amendments

Once you have paid a deposit against your cruise, any changes made to the booking will incur an amendment fee of $50 plus and applicable fees set you by the cruise line. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy.

Transfer to a new cruise/fare

From time to time cruise lines may advertise lower promotional cruise fares; these fares are not always available to existing bookings, however Cruise Republic will endeavour to accommodate any request to change to the lower fare. Please note this request is at the discretion of the cruise lines so is not always possible. New promotional fares may affect your current booking, resulting in reduced on-board credit.

If we are able to transfer you at the lower promotional fare a fee of $100 will be applied to your booking. Once final payment has been made for your cruise we are unable to lower the fare.

If you choose to transfer your cruise deposit to an alternative cruise departure this will also incur a fee of $100.

Cancellations

Once a deposit is made towards your cruise holiday it is deemed that you have accepted our terms and conditions, so are subject to any cancellation fees. Bookings cancelled after the deposit is paid, will incur a cancellation fee of $200 per cabin plus any additional cancellation fees set out by the cruise line. There are no cool down periods. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy.

Due to the issuing of refunds via Cheque by the cruiselines, refunds can take 4-6 weeks to reach us should you be entitled to any refund.

Payments

Payments towards your cruise holiday made by credit cards are subject to a transaction fee of 1.2% for Visa and Mastercard payments and 0.5% for Debit Cards. We also accept PayPal with a 1% transaction fee and AMEX which incur a 3.2% credit card fee. Payments made by bank deposit do not incur any transaction fees nor do payments made using the BPAY payment system. Please be aware payments made via bank deposit or BPAY within 24 hours of your booking expiring will require a legitimate receipt/screen shot of payment emailed through.

Onboard Credits

On selected departures we will offer you onboard credits & these may not be combinable with all cabin categories and promotions. We will send you through a confirmation which will confirm if the onboard credit is available against your booking. Making changes to your reservation could result in any onboard credits being removed. Once you have embarked the ship, the onboard credit will be applied to your onboard account to use towards any onboard purchases. Any unused portion of the Onboard Credit will expire at midnight on the last night of your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time.

'Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings

From time to time, we may offer you the option of making what we call a 'Guarantee (GTY) booking. This means you may book a stateroom of a guaranteed category type (Inside, Outside, Balcony) on your chosen ship and cruise. However, the exact grade, number and location of the stateroom on the ship will be allocated at the cruise lines discretion and at any time until checking in at the Port. Once your GTY stateroom has been allocated to you, we are unable to accept any changes requested by you. The benefits of a GTY stateroom are that after your booking has been confirmed, the cruise line may (at their discretion) upgrade your stateroom to a higher classed category to that originally booked at no extra charge to you. In any event, you are 'guaranteed' the minimum category you decide to book at the time of the cruise including obstructed view cabins.
If travelling with Family and Friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you not to book on a Guarantee.
We cannot guarantee your cabins will be assigned near one another, on the same deck, same side or forward/aft on the ship nor accept any requests.

Complimentary Upgrades

Depending on any last minute availability the cruise lines will automatically upgrade cabins to higher categories. The upgrades can place you towards the front of the ship, midships or at the back of the ship and not necessarily on a higher deck level (i.e.: Insides Deck 10 may be upgraded to Ocean view Deck 5). As the cruise lines cannot upgrade every booking, you should book a category in which you are happy to sail. Once the upgrade has been assigned, should you dislike the cabin location we are unable to accept any changes or requests and cannot be reversed.
If travelling with family and friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you to decline the upgrades. The cruise line do not guarantee all of the cabins will be upgraded, or that they will be upgraded near one another.

Future Cruise Credits

While we are happy to apply your Future Cruise Credits from the cruiselines to your booking with us, this may affect your online discounted pricing. We will still do our best to provide competitive pricing based on the discount we can offer on the new cruise fare once the future cruise credits have been applied to your booking. Please note if Future Cruise Credits are applied after your deposit has been paid may affect your final balance.

Passport & Visa Requirements.

For all international cruises all passengers will require to be in possession of a valid passport. The passport must have 6 months validity from the cruise return date.
Visa's may also be required and at the sole responsibility of the passenger. Please check with the relevant embassies or a Visa Services company for assistance.
Cruise Republic will not take any responsibility for passport or visa requirements.

Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings

From time to time, we may offer you the option of making what we call a 'Guarantee (GTY) booking. This means you may book a stateroom of a guaranteed category type (Interior, Oceanview, Balcony or Suite) on your chosen ship and cruise. However, the exact grade, number and location of the stateroom on the ship will be allocated by us (at our discretion) and at any time until checking in at the Port. Once your GTY stateroom has been allocated to you, we are unable to accept any changes requested by you. The benefits to you of a GTY stateroom are that after your booking has been confirmed, we may (at your discretion) upgrade your stateroom to one of a superior category to that originally booked at no extra charge to you. In any event, you are 'guaranteed' the minimum category of stateroom we agree to offer at the time of booking. At times, we may offer promotional GTY offers.

Such promotional GTY categorise are defined as follows:

  • W – Suite/Deluxe
  • X – Balcony cabin
  • Y – Oceanview cabin
  • Z – Interior Cabin

Please note: If you book 2 more cruises to be taken consecutively (back to back) and either one or all cruises are booked under a GTY basis, you may be allocated different staterooms on each cruise, therefore necessitating the need to move between staterooms on the changeover day between your consecutive cruises.

Onboard Credits

From time to time we may offer Onboard credit promotions. An onboard credit is monetary amount in US Dollars which is applied to your onboard account for onboard purchases. Some Onboard credits may not be combinable with other offers, please check with your Travel Agent. Any unused portion of the Onboard Credit will expire at midnight on the last night of your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time. Onboard Credit is not transferable between any cruises, including consecutive cruises.

Dining onboard

You have a choice of 3 options for dinner in the Main Dining Room. These are subject to availability at the time of booking.

  • Fixed Seating – dine at the same reserved table each night on either early or late sitting (approx 6pm and 8.30pm respectively)

  • My Time Dining (Open seating) – giving guests flexibility with their evening dining. You can decide when you would like to dine between the hours of 6pm and 8.30pm each night.

  • My Family Time – available onboard selected sailings for the earliest dining time (varies by ship and sailing) for guests aged between 3-11 yrs at the date of sailing. This offers children quicker service during first dining seating and they are transferred to the Adventure Ocean kids club.

Other special diets such as kosher meals, gluten-free and lactose-free may be available upon request (Note: Kosher meals are pre-packed and are only available for dinner in the main restaurant). Dining requests for specific dietary requirements or food intolerances cannot be accepted for any onboard eatery other than the main restaurant.

For your protection, we recommend that your passport expiration date not occur within six (6) months of the voyage termination date. Your passport will be held by the Purser’s Office, for Customs & Immigration requirements, and returned to you at the end of your cruise.

Visas/Inoculations: Please check with a travel agent, embassies, consulates, your physician or local health department to determine current travel and health documentary requirements.

Guests who do not possess the proper documentation may be prevented from boarding the flight or ship, disembarking or entering a country, and may be subject to fines.

Shore Excursions

Please book your excursions as soon as possible since some shore excursions can accommodate only a limited number of participants. Tours are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and we recommend that you purchase them in advance of your cruise in order to avoid disappointment. Please visit www.royalcaribbean.com for online booking details. Onboard, you may purchase tours through the interactive TV system in your stateroom (if applicable), by booking form dropped at the front desk or directly at the Shore Excursion Office during the hours advertised in the ship’s daily program. Unused shore excursions are non-refundable once booked. Royal Caribbean International is not responsible for any injuries or losses sustained whilst guests are ashore, whether on organised excursions or otherwise.

Travelling with Children

Infants sailing on a cruise/cruise tour must be at least 6 months old as of the first day of the cruise/cruise tour. However, for Transatlantic, Transpacific, Hawaii, and selected South American and other cruises/cruise tours, the infant must be at least 12 months old (as of the first day of the cruise/cruise tour). For cruises with 3 or more consecutive 'sea days' (where the ship is not in port, including days spent 'scenic cruising') infants must be at least 12 months of age on the first day of the cruise.

Denial of boarding for infants who do not satisfy these minimum age requirements may also result in the denial of boarding for one or more guests sailing with that infant. No refunds or other compensation shall be due from the cruise line to anyone as a result of the denial of boarding to an under-age infant or other accompanying guests.

Unaccompanied Minors

Guests who are 21 or older may book a cruise however no guest under the age of 21 will be booked in a stateroom unless accompanied by an adult 21years or older. This age limit will be waived for under-aged married couples (proof of marriage is required at check-in) or minor children sailing with their parents or guardians in adjacent staterooms. An individual’s age on the date of sailing determines his or her status for the entire cruise vacation.

Alcohol Policy

The minimum drinking age for all alcoholic beverages on all Royal Caribbean ships is twenty-one (21). However on International cruises departing from any port other than North America, where the legal drinking age is typically lower than 21, a parent or legal guardian who is sailing with his or her son(s)and/or daughter(s) who is between the ages of 18 to 20, may sign a waiver allowing the 18 to 20 year old to consume alcoholic beverages. The 18 to 20 year old guest must agree to comply with Royal Caribbean policies, including among other things, agreeing to not provide alcoholic beverages to any other person, regardless of age. Restrictions apply and this policy is subject to change without notice.

No alcoholic beverages may be purchased ashore for consumption onboard, these will be stored and delivered to your stateroom on the last night of the cruise. Alcohol purchased on board from the Gift Shop for consumption in your stateroom cannot be purchased at a duty free rate. All alcohol purchased during your cruise at the duty free rate will be stored by us and only delivered to your stateroom on the last night of your cruise.

Please note: An individual’s age on the date of sailing determines his or her status for the entire cruise vacation. Guests who violate any alcohol policies, may be disembarked or not allowed to board, at their own expense, in accordance with our Guest Vacation Policy.

Cabin Changes

Guests desiring to transfer to higher-priced accommodations, which may be available during boarding or after sailing, may do so by paying, in cash, with traveller’s checks or by credit card, the difference in published full cruise vacation prices. Please visit the Guest Relations desk for additional details.
