Can I purchase Cancellation & Protection Travel Insurance?

No. If you live outside the United States, Travel Insurance cannot be purchased through the cruise line. We recommend you purchase a travel insurance policy for each passenger in your home country, prior to your departure.

back to top

Can I purchase roundtrip air from my home country to the port of embarkation in conjunction with the cruise?

No. Your package can only include the cost of the cruise, port charges and taxes, and any optional pre or post hotel stays.

back to top

Can I purchase a pre or post hotel stay through the cruise line?

Yes. You may wish to consider purchasing through the cruise line a pre or post hotel package. A pre-hotel stay may be better for you so that you can arrive in ample time before embarking on the ship. Usually you can choose between a two or three night package, which will give you the opportunity to rest and relax after your flight and any time changes you may have experienced. Also, you will have the added protection of arriving earlier in case your flight from your home country is delayed or cancelled for any reason.

How do I book a pre or post hotel package?

You can request this option in the comments section at the bottom of the
E-mail Quote Form. Cruise Brokers International will e-mail you back with a price quote. If you wish to book a hotel package, please advise us at the time of making your deposit.

What are the immigration entry requirements?

Entry requirements are the sole responsibility of the passenger. No refunds will be made if improper documentation or proof of citizenship results in denied boarding or entry into a foreign country. All passengers will require a current passport. You can visit this website for information:
http://www.fodors.com/resource. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact your local embassy or consulate to be sure you will be in compliance.
