Cancel your cruise 48 hours out on RCL ships.

Recommended Posts

Visit the RCL site and RCL will let you cancel your cruise if you are uneasy with what's going on.

We Salute Mr. Fain, the CEO for what will cost them millions of dollars...

Just got the Rhapsody and had a fantastic cruise. Staff is exceptional!

It's actually a smart business move. Since people know they can put off cancelling their cruise til that final 48 hours, they are less likely to cancel it before that final payment deadline of 90 days out. So people can wait and see if things improve. And I don't see how it will cost them anything. They are not giving any money back, they are keeping your money and giving you a future cruise credit. But I will agree that it does remove some of the stress when trying to decide what to do and also helps anyone that is past the 90 day deadline.

Thanks for your response Sew.

Sailing around on ships that are half full will cost them millions a week,

including all the other cruise lines they own.

I'm sure you will see a news report about what this is costing them soon.

All their ships in the Med. are getting hit badly right now.

We just got an offer for a free cruise to Italy.

On our cruise the atmosphere was subdued and you could feel the tension

from passengers and also the crew. My special son was upset when Captain

did not shake his hand. We did "air bumps" wherever you go to hand bump

and do not touch each other. Many crew hugged our son every day though.

He won the belly flop contest and 3rd in Sexy man contest. It was great.

Usual Beach, I looked at most of the posts about this and many folks can not

go 6 pages deep on every post. As I said we just got off the ship.

Also I was thanking RCL for this decision that will cost them greatly.

Probably cancelling oue 3/29 cruise on Rhapsody. Not so much worried

about getting sick, but being locked in your room for 2 weeks with no freedom

drives me crazy to even think about. The U.S. Dept. of health says do NOT

go on a cruise right now. I do not want to go on a half full ship as it will not

be the same.

May your seas be flat,

And your tummies be fat.

BUT....if you used FCC (from a previous cruise) to purchase your current cruise, and you cancel it, you will forfeit the amount paid by using the FCC.  You will then only be issued a new FCC in the amount paid over & above  that from the old FCC.


in our case, $2200 from a FCC from Hurricane Dorian that we used to purchase our cruise that leaves in 2 weeks, will end up in the pockets of RCCL and we will only get a few hundred bucks in new FCC.  The kicker is, the $2200 FCC from Dorian had an expiration date of August 2020, but it doesn’t matter...RCCL will just get the $2200  five months early. 

Salute Mr Fain!


Just keep this little loophole in mind when you use your FCC to book your future cruise 👍
