Does anyone know how this works? There are 3 of us going on a cruise and as we know the first 2 are full price with the 3rd for just a few hundred dollars. If one person decided to back out I know they lose their deposit on early saver but how does it affect the other two. Will we just pay our original cost of two people or do we still have to pay for the 3rd person despite them not going?
You do not have to pay for the 3rd person if they cancel before final payment. You will just make the final payment for the 2 remaining guests.

I booked with early saver & had somebody cancel in our cabin of 3. When I called to cancel it ended up being cheaper for us to pay for the 3rd person (even though they won't be there) than it was to move the 2 of us to a 2 person cabin. It was close to final payment & the prices had really increased from what we had paid initially.
It looks like our 3rd will be going. If they did cancel she would have lost the deposit. We would only have to pay the two person price for the cabin. When three of us are going we just divide the entire cost three ways. No one pays a smaller price. With the 3rd person we pay around $200.00 less than if it was just the two of us. .
This is a little different situation. I recently cruised and my friend did not show up. She of course was not entitiled to a refund. I had paid the balance on her cruise when final was due. She had given me the money and it was paid with my credit card. About a week after I got home from the cruise the port charges/taxes had been returned to my credit card. She did not cancel, she just did not show up.
