THANKS FOR VISITING CRUISE DIRECT ONLINE
A Guaranteed Good Deal or Your Money Back!
At Cruise Direct Online, we understand and appreciate the importance of your cruise vacation. We also understand that when you book with us, you are entrusting our team to deliver a service experience that has real value and meet or exceed your expectations. Go ahead and book a cruise with one of our Certified Cruise Vacation Planners by phone at 800.365.1445. Then, we'll place your deposit with the cruise line. We then give you right up to the day before final payment is due ( around 75 days prior to sailing ) to cancel your reservation, no questions asked, to receive a full refund of your deposit. We commit that to the extent you are in any way dissatisfied, we will work hard to resolve your concerns, up to and including providing a full refund of your deposit, should you wish to cancel your reservation, without penalty right up to the day before final payment is required by the cruise line*. We do not charge any agency booking or cancellation fees. 100% of your deposit is refunded, directly by the cruise line. Once you've made a reservation, and placed a deposit with the cruise line, payment, cancellation and refund policies of the cruise line prevail in all cases. Those policies vary by cruise line, so be sure to contact them, review and fully understand their booking and cancellation policy and fees before making any payment. We strongly suggest you take out trip insurance to cover the cruise line's imposed booking, cancellation fees or penalties, should you need to cancel your cruise or cruise tour. As you can well understand, our guarantee will not apply after final payment is made by you.
* In certain circumstances, say for a special offer or promotion, the cruise line may require, to take advantage of their offer, a non-refundable deposit or non-refundable full payment at the actual time of booking. So, be sure you understand that if you book a cruise or cruise tour under those monetary restrictions, you will be bound by the cruise line's booking policy and therefore you will not get a refund should you cancel. We strongly suggest you take out trip insurance to cover such circumstance, should you need to cancel your cruise or cruise tour. As you can well understand, our good deal vacation guarantee would not apply in this situation.
What's A Cruise Cost ?
Prices and accommodations vary from ship to ship, departure dates and availability at the actual time of booking. To give you an idea of cost for budgeting purposes, we've compiled this list for you. These are samples of prices at the time of publication, based on the least expensive accommodation, often an inside cabin, for an off-season sailing. Ocean view, balcony and suite accommodations are much higher priced. Prices go up as the Summer goes on. The actual price you pay may vary up or down from what's shown here.
For the most up-to-the-moment prices and availability call and speak to a Certified Cruise Travel Expert at 800.365.1445. The call is free and so is the advice with no obligation to book.
