Expedition Cruising Payments & Refunds

To reserve your tour and lock in the final price, you will be required to place a deposit. The expedition cruise company will require that you pay either a flat rate or a percentage of your final fare. After you have placed a deposit to secure your reservation, you will be asked to pay the remaining balance of your fare at the final payment due date. Depending on the expedition cruise company and cruise selected, this final payment date can be from 45 to 120 days before departure. If you book your expedition cruise within the final payment period, you will be required to pay in full in order to secure your booking.

Cancellation and refund policies vary by expedition cruise company, with penalties generally increasing as the departure date approaches. In virtually all cases, there will be a cancellation fee of some size regardless of when you cancel, even if it is within hours of making your deposit. Changes to names or departure dates are treated as cancellations and new bookings by the expedition cruise company, and may incur cancellation penalties. As these fees increase closer to departure date, please notify your Vacations To Go expedition cruise specialist immediately of any cancellations or changes.

Expedition cruise companies do not make exceptions regarding cancellation charges, so we strongly recommend that passengers secure appropriate cancellation/ trip insurance. Click here for more information on insurance.

Payment and cancellation timetables and rates are subject to change, and exceptions may apply for holiday departures and group bookings; please confirm with your Vacations To expedition cruise specialist at time of booking.
