What if One Person in a Party has to Cancel?
 
We are 50 days out. Sailing on the Dream. There are 11 of us in 3 cabins. I just talked to my sister and due to a new job her DH might not be able to go...without perhaps jeopardizing the new job. Nothing else would change, can we just cancel one person without cancelling everything and re-booking? Would we only lose the amount of deposit for him or the whole cabin? Just trying to understand the exact penalties.

Is this a KSF rate, or GTY, or other special?

It depends on the type of booking....but worst case, if you have a "no changes" restricted booking, he can just not show up at the port. Yes, you'd lose his fare, but everyone else would cruise with no issues.

Usually job issues are not covered by travel insurance unless specifically mentioned in the policy.

At this point you can still switch someone out for his spot also.

You can do a name change for $75!!

Did it go up again? It used to be no charge until 30 days before embarkation and $50 after that. However, if they booked a *GT rate, there are no changes allowed.

No special rate. We booked early, not long after the rates came out, but no specials. I highly doubt we'd bring someone else...I can't even think of anyone, we are already bringing everyone in our family.

Bump......still trying to understand if we would have to cancel and re-book if we cancel one person.

As long as it's not a special rate you can remove him, but you might still be paying for him - at least partially - I'm not up on that part. If you're not at the paid in full date yet I don't think you'd have to pay for him, but I think you're inside that.

If you remove him and leave one person in a stateroom, then that stateroom is subject to the single supplement (same cost as for 2 people).

If removing him would leave his stateroom with no one at least 18 years old registered, you will need to register an adult in that stateroom.

With 11 guests in 3 staterooms it sounds like neither of those would be a concern.

Is your sister the only other one in the room with DH? If so, even if you cancel him, she will have to pay the single supplement (200%) which means you're still paying for 2 people in the room.

I don't think it would be a cancel and rebook situation, since it was a regular booking to start with. But there might be penalties.

Best answer would be from DCL.

It depends on who else is in the room, etc. What will happen is not a cancel and rebook, BUT....
if it is just 2 of them in the room and you cancel one, the other will pay a single person supplement. You will get back little on this situation--you would be entitled to the amount paid less the deposit, but then the first person fare would double, effectively using up the savings! OUCH!

If there are 3 in the room and you cancel 1, the number 3 person will move up to the number 2 slot and pay full adult fare regardless of age. You would get back the third person fare less the deposit paid on the husband.

Another option is to invite someone else to cruise. You can do a name change on a reservation for very little--it used to be at no charge up to 30 days, then $50 but someone posted last night that it was $75. Not sure which is accurate.


Bottom line--no, it is not a cancel and rebook as long as one adult remains in the room from the original booking. The amount of the refund would vary based on numbers in the room.
