Easy to change guest on reservation?


Recommended Posts

I am on the fence about booking a cruise and it has nothing to do with corona.  YEAH!  I want to book a room for my family of three and let my son include his girlfriend in our room as well.  If they breakup, is it EASY to swap out her name with someone else?  Has anyone done this before?  Do I have to pay a fee to change the name in our room?    (We are driving to the port, so no worries about airfare. ).   Please let me know soon!  (Thank God for this forum!)

Yes, It is pretty easy to drop/add extra people.

So no penalty or fee to drop, change or add people?

No penalty to drop, but you can't get back a nonrefundable deposit. It goes towards the balance of the room. 

You can change the name on a booking as long as one original member is on the booking, no charge, up to a few days before sailing. 

Adding a guest depends on several factors.  If you book a room with wt least 3 people, you will lock in the 3rd person rate which is the same cost it would be to add people in the future (could book the 3 of you without the GF for now, for example). But they do have capacity restrictions that could come into play if you are trying to add someone later and there's no more space in the muster station to accommodate.

Went through this also.  As long as one of the original names is on the reservation no issue changing one.   In our case, it was late - so a no show at the terminal, and my son had the room solo.  (Of course we paid for the double occupancy)

I didn't add anyone but when I booked I used my wife's maiden name (i booked before we got married and wasn't sure how the name changing process would go during covid). I actually just sent an email to customer service saying I needed to change her last name and they did it no problem. My guess is you could probably just call and add the new person, can't imagine it would be difficult.
