Norwegian Cruise Line sent out a statement saying that their number one priority is on the safety, security and well-being of our guests, team members and partners. To provide reassurance due to coronavirus concerns, the cruise line has temporarily modified the following policies.
Final payment for all June and July cruises will not be due until 90 days prior to sailing. This is a change from the normal 120 day window where final payments are due.
Up until 60 days prior to your cruise, Norwegian Cruise Line will allow a transfer of the reservation to any other cruise that departs on or before June 30, 2020. The transfer voyage must be of equal or greater value, prevailing rates will apply, and penalties will be waived.
If a guest chooses not to sail, the name change restriction will be waived up to 45 days prior to sailing. Name changes will be permitted for the cruise reservation only and excludes flight arrangements through Norwegian Cruise Line and/or pre-purchased travel protection.
Guests with non-ticketed Norwegian Cruise Line air may make name changes.
Guests with ticketed air may make name changes but will incur a penalty and possibly air change fee, if either is assessed by the airlines.
Note: Travel protection cannot be transferred.
To date, Norwegian Cruise Line been very successful in maintaining a healthy onboard environment through their rigorous protocols, and by acting quickly to modify itineraries whenever necessary.
Norwegian Cruise Line went on to say that guests should always purchase the appropriate travel insurance for their cruises, including travel insurance that allows a guest to cancel for any reason.
