The program lets guests get a full credit of the cruise fare paid that can be used for a future cruise through April 2022 and May 4, 2022, for Celebrity Cruises. The “Best Price Guarantee” and “Lift and Shift” programs are still being offered too.

Royal Caribbean Group chairman and CEO Richard Fain, said:

“We want our guests to feel they can safely keep their existing cruise bookings or schedule new sailings, because this policy gives them more freedom and flexibility.”

  • “Best Price Guarantee”: Guests can choose to change the price and promotional offer on their reservation up to 48 hours before their cruise.
  • “Lift and Shift”: This option is ideal for those guests wishing to move their vacation plans to next year. Eligible between now and November 30, 2020, guests can protect their original cruise fare and promotional offering by shifting to a future sailing on the same itinerary type, sailing length, stateroom category, and within the same 4-week period of their original cruise date same-time-next-year. Bookings for 2021 sail dates may shift to 2022 only on current deployment open through 4/30/22 (5/4/22 for Celebrity).

The extended program applies to Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, and Azamara. There are specifics for each cruise line including Silversea, that guests should check first before making any decision.

This follows Royal Caribbean’s previous extension which was through September 30, 2020. With us coming to the end of September already it does make sense for the cruise lines to extend through November. This also comes the day before the CDC No-Sail Order could run out or be extended.
