  • Discounts


    Inked@Sea offers a 5% discount on all reservations paid in full before August 18, 2024 at Midnight EST. Reservations must be paid in full at the time of booking. Discount will be applied after payment is received and refunded to credit card on file within 7 days.


    All active duty, retired or 100% disabled members of the United States Armed Forces are eligible for a 5% discount on the full fare of their cabin. In order to receive this discount, one of the following must be submitted within 30 days of initial deposit by emailing

    Copy of a current military LES (Leave and Earnings statement)

    Copy of military retirement or honorable discharge (DD-214 or DD-256) 

    Cadets: Letter from Commander or a copy of a military pay stub

    Please black out social security number prior to submitting. Limit 1 cabin discount per military member.



    Late Fees will be applied per guest for each cabin that does not remit payment by the required payment due dates. 

    Should any of your automatic payments be declined or returned by your bank you will have up to 10 days to resolve the issue. After 10 days, Inked@Sea will automatically charge delinquent accounts an Administrative Late Fee of $35.00. This fee will be added to your outstanding payment amount. Payments received will be applied first to cover the administrative fee, then the remaining amount of the payment will be applied to your reservation balance.

    The 10-day grace period is for payments that are due on the fifteenth of the month only. If you request to change your payment due date, and that payment is declined or returned by your bank, you will have 24 hours to resolve this issue or a $35.00 late fee will be applied to your account.

    If you miss two or more consecutive payments, your reservation is subject to cancellation without refund.

    For all reservations made prior to July 15, 2024, where payment in full has not been received by 11:59p-ET on July 15, 2024, Inked@Sea reserves the right to consider that reservation canceled, and to charge the applicable cancellation penalties.


    Due to the unique nature of our event, any and all cabin reservation cancellations, Inked@Sea offered shore excursions, and the additional taxes/fees amount of $275/pp, are non-refundable for any amount or any reason, and cancellation forfeits all payments. There are NO exceptions to our cancellation policy.

    The Lead Guest is solely responsible for initiating or authorizing a reservation/guest cancellation, and must submit all requested Cancellations using our Cancellation Request Form (LINK CREATED/TRANSFERRED BY BUBBLE UP).

    Please Note: Although travel insurance is offered to guests during the reservation process, all travel insurance policy sales and payments are made directly with Travel Guard and are non-refundable. To review insurance policy benefits, terms and conditions, please contact Travel Guard directly at 800-826-4919, or click here:

    For information on cancellation by Inked@Sea and/or Virgin Voyage’s, please refer to the Terms & Conditions.


    Lead Guests are obligated for the full cruise fare and fees of the occupancy level of your cabin selected during the reservation process, even if you do not provide additional guest information to us.

    The Lead Guest is not allowed to change their name within the reservation. At least one original and/or lead guest name must remain on the reservation. If all original guests cancel, this is considered a full cancellation without refund, and name changes will not be allowed.

    The Lead Guest is solely responsible for initiating or authorizing changes to the reservation, and must agree in writing to any changes made to the reservation, and must submit all requested changes using our Name Change Request Form (LINK CREATED/TRANSFERRED BY BUBBLE UP).

    NAME and CABIN NUMBER changes can be made up until 30 days prior to sailing (if allowed by the cruise line), and will be assessed the following administrative fees per change:

    $75.00 Change Fee (Cabin/Name) through July 15, 2024

    $100.00 Change Fee (Cabin/Name) July 16, 2024 – September 3, 2024

    $150.00 Change Fee (Cabin/Name) within 2 weeks of sailing (upon approval by the cruise line)

    The date that such notice of change is received via the Name Change Form (LINK CREATED/TRANSFERRED BY BUBBLE UP). will determine the applicable fees per the above schedule. No exceptions will be made.

    In all cases of name changes, the NEW guest must make full payment. Once that payment has been made, then the applicable amounts paid by the ORIGINAL guest will be refunded directly to the original guest, less the cost of the name change fee.

    Please Note: Your cabin number is subject to change without notice at the discretion of Inked@Sea or the cruise line.


    Prices are subject to change and to availability. All rates are per person. Add $275 per person for government taxes, port charges, and ticketing fees.

    If the total deposit amount required for your reservation (based on your cabin's occupancy level) has not been paid in full within 48-hours of booking, Inked@Sea reserves the right to discard and refund that reservation in its entirety.

    Most major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover are accepted. Payment by check is also accepted, but only when prior arrangements have been made.
