Guests can request to embark or disembark at a port of call other than the scheduled embarkation/disembarkation port. This is referred to as “down lining” and is on a request basis only, subject to consideration and approval by Royal Caribbean. Although down lining is offered, it is highly discouraged due to implications resulting from unscheduled itinerary changes and weather/sea conditions, which may result in missing your port of embarkation/debarkation. Royal Caribbean cannot accept any liability in respect to these circumstances, which are out of our control.
A downline fee of AUD$65pp applies to all approved downline requests. This charge is added to your reservation and must be paid prior to the full sailing scheduled departure date. Guests are not entitled to any discount of the cruise fare as a result of not completing the full cruise.
Please note that changes in the global climate or ship's itinerary may cause prior approval to be rescinded. It is the guest’s responsibility to ensure all documentation is correct and valid and the necessary visas obtained in order to meet the downline request. Incorrect documentation can possibly result in denied entry into the requested countries or boarding of the vessel.
