My Fiance and I are booked on the Monarch of the Seas in February. Some things have come up that are causing us to consider changing our sail date. We are thinking May would be a better time for us. We have paid for our cruise in full. I called my travel agent and asked if we could cancel the Feb cruise and reschedule for May and just apply the money that we have paid, plus any balance if there is one to a May sailing. She said that we must cancel the 1st cruise and request a refund. Then we can apply the refund to our new cruise. I am wondering if anyone else has been in this situation. Does Royal Caribbean refund the money in a reasonable amount of time or does it take months? Thanks.
