Royal Caribbean Group has extended its Cruise with Confidence policy to cover sailings through to spring 2022.
For all bookings made by 31 January 2021, guests are able to cancel their cruise up to 48 hours prior to sailing.
Royal Caribbean International and Azamara customers will receive a full credit of the cruise fare paid for a future cruise through to April 2022, while Celebrity Cruises guests will be given a credit valid until 4 May 2022.
Royal Group has also pledged to continue its Best Price Guarantee and Lift and Shift policies.
The company’s Best Price Guarantee allows guests to change the price and promotional offer on their reservation up to 48 hours before their cruise, while Lift and Shift enables guests to move their holiday plans to next year.
Eligible between now and 31 January 2021, guests can protect their original cruise fare and promotional offering by shifting to a future sailing on the same itinerary type, sailing length, stateroom category, and within the same four-week period of their original cruise date at the same time next year.
Bookings for 2021 sail dates may shift to 2022 only on current deployment open through 30 April 2022 (4 May 2022 for Celebrity).
Royal Group chair Richard Fain said: “We want our guests to feel they can safely keep their existing cruise bookings or schedule new sailings, because this policy gives them more freedom and flexibility.”
