However, we do appreciate that in life plans change and in such a case will endeavour to fill your place. If this is possible, we will then refund any money we recover by selling the place, minus a £50 administrative charge. Please note that if the cancellation is short-notice we might sell your place at a discount and the money we recover might be less than the fee paid. We strongly advise you to take out suitable travel insurance including cancellation cover. Please contact us early if you may need to cancel or change a booking.
If for any reason you decide to leave the ship before the end of the trip, we will help facilitate this. However, we will be unable to refund any money.
