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.
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 1, 2024
$100.00 Change Fee (Cabin/Name) July 2, 2024 – September 3, 2024
$150.00 Change Fee (Cabin/Name) within 2 weeks of sailing
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.
All Name Change requests must be submitted in writing via our Name Change Request Form.
The date that such notice of change is received via these forms will determine the applicable fees per the above schedule. No exceptions will be made.
Please Note: Your cabin number is subject to change without notice at the discretion of Inked@Sea or the cruise line. VIP package purchases are NOT TRANSFERABLE (except for name changes within Platinum VIP Suites).
LATE PAYMENT FEES
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 first 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 November 1, 2023, where payment in full has not been received by 11:59p-ET on November 1, 2023 Inked@Sea reserves the right to consider that reservation canceled, and to charge the applicable cancellation penalties.
