In response to the latest announcement from the Australian Government, the decision has been made to further extend cruise operations for Australia and New Zealand departures through December 31, 2020 on both cruise lines.
Additionally, to further prepare for a healthy and safe return to service, China cruises departing October 1-31, 2020 onboard Spectrum of the Seas have also been suspended.
Royal Caribbean Group said that this decision was not made lightly and that they want to ensure that guests have the best possible cruise experience on their cruise ships.
All booked guests will automatically receive a 125% Future Cruise Credit (FCC) valid until December 31st, 2021, for use on sailings through May 4th, 2022. The value of the FCC will be calculated based on amounts paid toward the cruise and will be processed by October 16th, 2020 via email. Cruise taxes and fees will be refunded automatically to the original form of payment within at least 30 days of cancellation.
Those on canceled cruises can also choose to move to their cruise to a qualifying cruise next year and your fare/promotion will be protected.
Additionally, you can choose a 100% refund to your original method of payment by contacting Royal Caribbean by December 21, 2020. Refunds will be received at least 30 days after the request is submitted.
