Trip dates to come

Any cancellations over 90 days out are still subject to our standard policy, which is a full refund less a 20% cancellation fee. For any cancellations less than 90 days of the trip we are offering a provisional cancellation policy to provide more flexibility to guests while the outbreak persists, which is a 100% credit of payment towards any trips booked later in 2020, 2021 or 2022. If you rebook the identical itinerary, there will be no price adjustments even if that package experiences future rate increases. Guests may also choose to apply the credit towards a trip of higher value and pay the difference. You can also use your credit to transfer to another individual as a gift certificate or to a future trip.
