Q

What kind of refund am I entitled to if I cancel my cruise booking?

A

The cancellation policy applies when reserving with our US Office only. Guests should contact their local Royal Caribbean International Office or Travel Agent for full details of applicable cancellation policies.

When calculating the days prior to sailing, the day of sailing should not be considered as one of the days. The day of sailing is considered the first day of the cruise, therefore, the penalty period will commence one day prior to the day of sailing.

No refunds will be made if you do not show up for your cruise or if you interrupt or cancel your vacation once it has begun.
