Payments are NOT automatically processed. It is your responsibility to make your payments by the due dates. You can make a payment at any time regardless of whether it is a payment due date or not by either calling us at (855) 622-3111 or by using the “PAYMENT LINK” located in your confirmation emails.

The Payment Terms described above supersede those made by the NCL Cruise/Cruisetour Ticket Contract. Please note the payment provisions of these Terms and Conditions apply to the Cruise, regardless of any representations made by NCL or its affiliated entities, whether in the NCL Cruise/Cruisetour terms or elsewhere. The rights granted to passengers in the NCL Cruise Ticket Contract relating to the payment or refund of cruise fare and to cancellations by passengers shall not be operative.

Due to the nature of this event, all deposits and payments for On the Blue Cruise are NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-TRANSFERABLE. Therefore, we highly recommend Travel Insurance.

Travel Insurance is NOT included in your reservation. The purchase of insurance is the sole responsibility of each guest sailing and is NOT offered through OTBC or the On the Blue Cruise Reservations Team. It is up to each guest to research and decide on a 3rd party vendor of his or her choice for insurance if they choose to do so. On the Blue Cruise is not responsible for any losses, medical expenses accrued during travel and/or any and all deposits, due to lack of travel insurance. Not all travel insurance is the same, and you should carefully investigate to determine what situations are covered, and how they are covered, in each policy you may be offered.
