RESERVATION CHANGES, TRANSFERS & FEES

The Passenger who places a reservation for a cabin onboard is considered the cabin’s “Primary” passenger and is therefore solely responsible for initiating or authorizing all changes to the reservation. Downgrading your cabin to a cabin of lesser value is not allowed. Primary passenger name changes are considered a CABIN TRANSFER and are subject to a transfer fee of $299 USD. All new passengers are required to complete and agree to the Reservation Terms & Conditions before the change will be accepted.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all cabins can accommodate 3 and/or 4 guests. Cabins that hold more than two passengers are limited and we cannot guarantee that additional guests can be added to your cabin at a later date. Triple and quad occupancy cabins will only be assigned to those with more than 2 passengers in the cabin at the time of booking. Guests that plan to add additional guests, may attempt to do so, but are not guaranteed their stateroom will accommodate the new occupancy after the original booking date. This may require a change of cabin location or an upgrade of category- at additional cost- but this is also subject to availability.

In addition, if a guest is purchasing a VIP Cabin, VIP credentials are capacity controlled and therefore guests may not be able to be added to VIP cabins at a later date.


No transfer or change of a reservation to a NEW passenger shall be made without OTBC’s prior written approval, to be given or withheld in OTBC’s sole discretion. Subject to the preceding sentence, under no circumstances shall a Passenger or any person or entity acting on Passenger’s behalf (i) sell a reservation, cabin, or berth to any other person or entity for more than the price paid by the Passenger, or (ii) offer the reservation, cabin or berth to any other person(s) or entity(s) as a prize or award in a drawing, contest, lottery, sweepstakes, raffle or similar event of any kind; a transfer in violation of this sentence shall not be permitted, and the Primary passenger shall indemnify and hold harmless OTBC from and against any damages, losses and claims suffered by OTBC as a result of a violation by Primary passenger, or any other passenger listed on the reservation, of this paragraph. If a Primary or other passenger wishes to transfer the reservation, cabin or berth to a NEW passenger, the Primary passenger shall send a request in writing using our “Reservation Change Request Form” for approval of this transfer to OTBC, along with (i) the reason for the requested transfer and a statement that the transfer will not violate this paragraph, (ii) the NEW passenger’s name, and (iii) a completed acceptance of and agreement to these Terms and Conditions from the NEW passenger. If the request is approved by OTBC, the NEW passenger must make a deposit equal to the amount due based on the above due dates and/or full payment of the original amount paid on the reservation, whichever is more. Once that payment has been made, then the applicable amounts paid by the ORIGINAL traveler will be refunded directly to the original traveler. Any NEW passenger sailing with a reservation transferred to him/her in violation of this paragraph may be denied boarding by OTBC or, in OTBC’s sole discretion, removed by OTBC from the Cruise at any port, at such NEW passenger’s sole cost.

Change links must be submitted by 5:30 pm Eastern Time by the above deadline dates. To request a form, please email OTBC at reservations@onthebluecruise.com. The date and time the form is received will be the date of the change/cancellation and will determine the applicable change fee/cancellation fees per the above schedule. Once the change has been approved, all applicable fees will be due within 24 hours. Failure to pay within that 24-hour period will result in a denial of the change request. No exceptions will be made.


CANCELLATION

Due to the unique nature of our event, we have a very strict “NO REFUND/CANCELLATION” policy. No refunds will be issued, unless due primarily to the fault of OTBC. Therefore, we HIGHLY recommend that passengers consider purchasing travel insurance. For maximum coverage, we recommend that you consider third party policies with “Cancel for Any Reason” coverage.

ALL PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-TRANSFERABLE


If You Do Not Show Up for The Program on Time, or Do Not Otherwise Use Your Ticket: There will be no refunds given.

 

If you need to cancel, please follow the steps below:


  • The main passenger on the reservation must fill out, sign, and submit the online form BEFORE the cabin will be canceled.

 

The date the form is received will be the date of cancellation. No exceptions will be made, and this process must be followed (unless the cancellation is done by OTBC or On the Blue Cruise for failure to pay or other reason(s) within our discretion).

 

Please note the cancellation provisions of these Terms and Conditions apply to the Cruise, regardless of any representations made by NCL, whether in its passenger contract terms or elsewhere. All rights granted to passengers in the NCL contract relating to the payment or refund of cruise fare and to cancellations by passengers shall not apply to you or be operative.


NO-SHOWS

There will be no refunds given for those who do not show up on time, for unused tickets, or to those seeking refunds after the Cruise has commenced.
