I am going on cruise with 8 other people in Feb. There were originally suposed to be 9 others, and that is how we booked. Now one of the people that was to stay in my cabin (My daughter) will not be able to join us. My question is... Will I be able to get the deposit back for her? Or at least have it applied to the final payment of my cruise?
I have learned alot on here, and I think I already know the answer, but I figured it would be worth a shot to ask some of you more experienced cruisers.
BTW.... We booked through AAA, my Sis-in-law has a membership but I don't, and I don't want to call them if it isn't a possibility.
You should be outside the penalty timeframe so yes you should get back your deposit. Now I have no idea what restrictions AAA may impose on you but the cruiseline refunds everything usually if you cancel more than 70 days out.
Jim's right... assuming, there are STILL two people occupying that cabin.
You don't say whether there were originally 3 of you booked into the cabin. There should be no problem getting your daughters deposit back.... BUT... if there aren't 2 people still booked in the cabin, your rate will rise.... probably to the same equivelant cost as what your daughter had paid.
Yes, the only problem I see, is if there is not another full paying adult in your cabin, otherwise, yes, you should be able to get the deposit back. Just beware, they will take their own sweet time about it, so be patient.
I still have 2 cabinmates. There was going to be myself and 3 teenagers (Yikes!!! what was I thinking??? )... now just 2 teenagers and me. Actually one is 18 (adult !?!). But they all paid the full adult price minus the 3rd and 4th party discount.
