Ecruising Temporary Cancellation Policy

Ecruising Temporary Cancellation Policy

EFFECTIVE 8 APRIL 2020

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, we fully understand the heightened travel concerns that follow, and we will continue to work with our affected guests.

Due to continued global public health circumstances, all cruiselines are having to make difficult decisions to continually suspend their voyages and we are doing all that we can to be as flexible as possible as the current situation evolves.

As of 8 April 2020, we have introduced a new ecruising.travel credit programme to help our guests that have been affected by these cancelled voyages. In replace of our standard fee of up to $250 per guest or up to 20% per booking, the newly reduced fees will be held as a credit in which guests will be able to reuse with ecruising.travel for future cruise travel bookings.

The amounts will vary depending on whether you have booked just a cruise component or a packaged cruise holiday with us directly. Guests can apply these credits to any future cruise booking with ecruising.travel on or before 31 December 2021.

Don't cancel your holiday, just postpone it. We will come through this stronger than ever!

New Fees on affected voyages as of 8 April 2020

Type ecruising.travel Credit
All cruise only bookings $75.00 per guest
All packaged cruise holidays $150.00 per guest

Consequently, we are not making any exception to our standard cancellation policies found here for those who choose to cancel their cruise booking which has not been officially cancelled by the cruiseline.

We understand the complexity of this issue and trust you appreciate the need to be fair and equitable. Your continued support during this uncertain time is greatly appreciated and it truly shows how loyal and understanding everyone has been during these tough times.
