The following information is required and needed to book the cruise for every guest in your cabin or party.
We accept payment online through PayPal. PayPal accepts most major credit cards including; Visa, Mastercard and American Express. We will also accept payment by certified check, as long as prior arrangements are made with our office. Within 30 days of sailing, only credit card payments will be accepted.
At this time, we can reserve your spot on our cruise with a 50% deposit PER GUEST, while the deposit rate is affected by the date that you make your reservation and the accommodations and number of passengers you book in your cabin. In summary, the nicer the cabin and the fewer the occupants, the more costly an individual’s passage on the cruise will be. All of our base rates are established on a double occupancy of the cabin. Final payment for the cruise will be due no later than 30 days prior to the sailing date. Full payment will be required for any bookings made within 30 days of sailing. Late fees will be accrued for final payments made after this date, as stipulated herein and in the Terms And Conditions.
The last day to book the Bliss Bahamas Cruise is based on availability and Carnival Cruise Lines. Cruises booked within 1 week of sailing are not guaranteed, as a lot of work has to go into making sure that the cruise line follows all national and international rules and laws when booking your passage. We recommend booking early to guarantee the best rates and best cabin locations. It is important to note that rates and availability are not guaranteed until booked, and our rates will likely increase closer to sailing.
The Bliss Bahamas Cruise, once booked and purchased, is non-refundable and non-transferable. There are NO REFUNDS for partial or full payments due to no-shows and cancellations, regardless of the reason.
We, therefore, strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to avoid financial loss due to unexpected emergencies.
