It is important to note there are restrictions regarding fare refunds and cancellation fees may be assessed based on the length of your cruise and how many days prior to your cruise departure date Luxury Cruises Cruises® is notified of your cancellation. See the Cancellation Fees and Refunds chart in your passage contract for specific details.
Two rooms better than one?
cruise pricing has large supplementary fares for the 3rd and 4th occupant of a room, which makes splitting much more attractive. For example, you might find that a single room costs $1500, broken down into $500 each for the first two guests and $250 each for the 3rd and 4th. Split into two identical cabin or staterooms of the same category you originally picked and your total fare is now $2000, or $500 each for all 4 guests. That’s only a 33% increase in price for a 100% increase in space (and washrooms)! Depending on the category and sailing, you’ll generally find that splitting 4 people into two staterooms of the same category is 15-40% more. And if you’re willing to make the second room a lower category, like an interior room on the same hallway, that reduces the cost even more.
Cruising with a Disability?
Need a mobility aide, oxygen, baby crib or other special equipment while cruising? Special Needs at Sea is the preferred accessibility supplier for Cruise Lines International Association.
Final payment for my cruise vacation due ?
Final payment of the balance must be received to Luxury cruise offices at least 60 days prior to the sailing date for 3, 4, or 5-night cruise vacations and 75 days prior to the sailing date for 7-night or longer cruise vacations. The payment schedule for groups is different from that of individuals.
