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.

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.
