If you’re not happy with any 3–14 day Carnival vacation you take to The Bahamas, the Caribbean, the Mexican Riviera, Bermuda, Canada/New England or Alaska, just let them know within 24 hours of your departure. Carnival will refund 110% of your fare and Guest Services will get you back to your home, free of charge with no hassles and no questions asked.

How does Carnival’s Great Vacation Guarantee work?

  • You will receive a refund equal to 110% of the cruise fare.
  • If you rebook within one year, you will receive a $100 per stateroom onboard credit.

Carnival will make all the arrangements and you will receive a full refund, airfare to return home, and an onboard credit to use on a future cruise.  You will disembark at the first port of call and the cruise line will take care of ground transportation and hotel accommodations if they are needed.

In addition to the 110% cruise fare refund, Carnival will also refund the actual amount paid for government fees and taxes, VPP (Vacation Protection Plan), prepaid gratuities, unused pre-purchased services (The Fun Shops, Spa, etc.) and unused shore excursions.

Due to a U.S. Government requirement, guests must be in possession of a valid passport to return to the U.S. by air from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, The Bahamas and Bermuda. Due to travel restrictions, the Great Vacation Guarantee will not apply to cruises visiting Cuba.
