Over a dozen of us went on the same New Year cruise to Bahamas last year (see pics). It was splendid to ring in the New Year with friends aboard all inclusive cruise ship(except alcohol and soda); and as a bonus got to enjoy the warmer weather, white sands, turquoise blue
waters, tropical drinks, and all the champagne we could handle.

The cruise lines can increase rates without notice. A rate is not protected or "frozen" unless a confirmation number has been issued. All prices and dates may not be available at time of booking. All information is subject to change without notice. We reserve the right to correct errors.
Name Change, or Cancellation:
Royal Caribbean is one of the only cruise lines that don’t charge a name change fee; but all cruise lines consider it a full cancellation if the two people in a two person cabin cancel; even if they have two other people to switch with. Each reservation has to have at least one original guest; this is a non-negotiable item and has more to do with legalities stemming from Homeland Security regulations than revenue.
