FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What happens if my trip has been cancelled by the cruise line?

If you have been advised that your cruise has now been cancelled your consultant will work through your options with you. You will receive an email from the cruise line if your booking is affected, and this will include the options for you to consider. In most cases, these include receiving a Future Cruise Credit or receive a full refund. For all suspended cruises where the cruise line is offering a full refund, we will refund our fee for the cruise also. Please read your email and take your time to decide which option is right for you. Your consultant will then assist you further.

What happens if I choose to cancel my trip?

If you choose to cancel your trip, where no official travel restriction is in place from WHO, DFAT and the CDC, and the supplier (cruise lines, airlines and other operators) has not made any changes, normal cancellation fees will apply. Many suppliers are offering flexible conditions to give passengers options and minimise any loss. Many have also introduced further cancellation protection which can be purchased at the time of booking to avoid losses.

We also revised our own cancellation policy temporarily to give you greater flexibility with your existing travel plans until 30 June 2020. Where a cruise line has revised their cancellation policy, we will hold our regular cancellation fee in credit for you for 12 months, to apply to a future travel booking. Where a supplier has not revised their cancellation policy, our standard cancellation policy applies. You can view our full terms and conditions here. We have options to give you confidence and flexibility to proceed with your holiday planning.

What assurances are cruise lines giving for travel later in the year?

Given there is some uncertainty around, many cruise lines have revised and relaxed their booking and cancellation policies, offering penalty-free changes, deferments and future travel credits so you can book with confidence. Speak to your consultant about these changes to make an informed decision. You can also view the latest cruise line updates via the links at the top of this page.

What measures are cruise lines putting in place to ensure my safety on board?

Cruise lines are exercising an abundance of caution in every decision they take, with passenger and crew safety a number one priority. Restrictions on who can board, itinerary changes, advanced health screening, additional deep sanitisation measures and additional medical staff on board, are just some of the strengthened measures on board. Cruise lines are working closely with health authorities to continually revise and enhance health and safety protocols. Further details can be found on the CLIA website and via the cruise line links above.

I requested a refund but haven’t received it yet, do I need to get in touch?

Our team is processing refunds within 24 hours of receiving them, however we are seeing lengthy delays from cruise lines, which is understandable given the sheer volume of processing they are working through. Cruise lines have communicated their wait times individually - generally speaking we’re seeing 30-60 day processing times, but up to 90 days in some cases. We’ll be in touch as soon as funds are received on our end.

I’m concerned about accepting a Future Cruise Credit for my cancelled cruise - will cruise lines still be around to honour them when I go to travel?

The short answer is yes! In contrast to the airline industry, the parent cruise line operators - Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines - have delivered consistent profits since the sector launched about 50 years ago and go into the current crisis with strong balance sheets. Many new cruise ships are on order (and remain so) and cruise lines are eager to invite passengers back on board once it is safe to do so.

I’m concerned you won’t be around once I do consider travelling again. Will you be?

We’re a family owned business that has been operating for 20 years. These years in the industry have taught us that in travel while there are many highs, there can be real lows too. While COVID-19 undoubtedly marks an all-time low, it’s the rainy day we’ve long been preparing for, so that we can continue to be around for the next 20 years and beyond.

Along with being well prepared, we are ATAS (http://www.afta.com.au/) and AFTA (http://www.afta.com.au/) accredited, which gives you consumer protection for insolvency - so your money is very safe. Also when booking with us, monies are immediately transferred to cruise lines, so no funds are held at our end, further protecting you.

Will your office continue trading regular hours?

Yes. Behind the scenes, we have set up our team to work from their homes, to ensure their wellbeing and for continuity of service for our customers, no matter what the coming weeks and months bring. Our business hours will remain unchanged, so we’re here if you need us.
