When . . .


Recommended Posts

Dear Crystalites:


Would you please let me know the NC requirements 1) what percent is required for deposit? 2) how far from embarking is balance due? 3) when are shore excursions available?, 4) when are specialty restaurant reservations taken? 5. how far out from embarking do you get your package of documents? and finally 6) is the nc giving credit for cruises taken with the oc?  Please chime in.  I would be very thankful.

Some of this depends on....Have you already booked?  Which cruise?  World cruises have different requirements than others.  If you have a Travel Agent, they should know the deposits and final payment info.  If you provide a few more details, it will be easier to answer correctly.

In general these are the answers. Have your TA verify them when you are ready to book.




25% deposit


Final Payment due 120 days prior to cruise.


You can book reservations for shore excursions and specialty restaurants 60 days prior to the cruise at the present time for most cruises.


E Tickets available on line approximately 30 days prior to the cruise.


Luggage tags (not being provided at the present time until new ones available). Early voyages those were arriving to ones home between one to two weeks prior to embarkation but you can fill them out at the pier.


NC does recognize the cruises taken with OC and that is counted towards your next Crystal Society Milestone.

Big Thank You for your information.  Once specific cruise is selected it will be nice to have a better than ballpark figure.  Of course port fees and taxes etc. will be additional.



Hello, the price you see on Crystal website include port fees and taxes. FYI
