INSURANCE: Celebrity highly recommends the purchase of travel insurance. If you need to cancel, please refer to the Celebrity cancellation policy found online or in your contract with Celebrity. If you have purchased or wish to purchase travel insurance, please contact your provider. Purchasing insurance may help protect your funds for covered reasons in the event of illness, injury, weather or cancellation. Keep in mind most insurance providers require the purchase of policies to be completed within a select number of days when the deposit was made which varies by company. Celebrity does not sell travel insurance nor can Celebrity advise on travel insurance or claims. You may use any travel insurance company you wish. Multiple links are provided for convenience only.
PASSPORTS: Celebrity highly recommends that all U.S. citizens travel with a valid passport. In the event that a passenger does not have a passport, a birth certificate with a photo I.D. will be required. If the United States Department of Homeland Security changes I.D. requirements, you will be required to provide the necessary I.D. to board the ship. Any person born outside the United States must check with their local government for proper identification to travel outside of the United States. Any person that does not have the proper documentation will be denied boarding the ship and no refund will be issued.

Do I need a passport?
Celebrity strongly recommends that all U.S. Citizens travel with a valid passport. While a birth certificate along with a photo I.D. may be permissible for sailing; all passengers must provide the necessary documents that the United States Department of Homeland Security requires. These requirements may change at any time, which is why we strongly recommend passengers travel with a valid passport. Any person not born in the United States must check with their local government for proper identification to travel outside of the United States. Any person that does not have the proper documentation will be denied boarding of the ship and will not be given a refund. Please note that some countries require your passport be valid at least six months beyond the dates of your trip.

How much is my deposit?
Deposits are $125-$250 per person depending on time of booking and are non-refundable. A deposit is required at time of booking to secure your stateroom and price. Your deposit will count towards your cruise total. Cabins booked after April 1 will require payment in full at time of booking.
How do the payment plans work?
Celebrity allows passengers to make monthly interest-free payments for their reservation. The minimum monthly payment must be received by the required due date each month. Any late payments will result in a $35 late fee. After two (2) missed payments, your reservation will be cancelled and you will not receive a refund. If the final payment is not received by the required due date, your reservation will be cancelled and you will not receive a refund. Payments can be made by check or credit card. However, all payments by credit card will result in a 4% fee due to transaction costs. There will also be a fee of $35 for any returned checks.
How do I complete a name change?
Any name changes, including spelling corrections, will be charged a $100 fee after April 1, 2024. Please ensure Celebrity has accurate full legal names and birth dates for all passengers sailing, prior to that date. To complete a name change, please contact the Celebrity Offices at 480.706.8888.
What if I am sailing with a minor?
Each stateroom with an individual under the age of 21 must have at least one adult over the age of 25. Children under six (6) months of age on the first day of the sailing are not permitted to travel due to the infant’s vulnerable health. The availability of medical care at sea or in port may be limited or delayed. Early infant care may specifically require specialized diagnostic facilities and/or treatment that are not obtainable on board the ship.
What if I am expecting a child?
Due to safety concerns, Carnival policy refuses passage to women who have entered the 24th week of pregnancy as of the sail date. All pregnant guests may be required to produce a physician’s letter stating that mother and baby are in good health, fit to travel, and the pregnancy is not high-risk. This letter may also need to include the estimated date of delivery. If you are or will be pregnant by the date of cruise disembarkation, please check Carnival’s policy to see if this may apply to you. Please also notify Celebrity if this applies to you so Carnival can be informed. Carnival may change this policy at any time, in which case, Celebrity will inform you.
What if I need to cancel?
Deposits are nonrefundable at the time of booking. If any passenger cancels on or before December 1, 2023, their payments will be applied to the existing reservation as long as 2 passengers are still sailing and at least 1 cabin is booked for that account. Penalties starting December 2, 2023 are as follows:
PENALTIES STARTING DECEMBER 1, 2023 ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Booking Date-December 1, 2023: If the entire cabin or party cancels, the $125 per person nonrefundable deposit is lost.
December 2, 2023-January 31, 2024: $100 nonrefundable per person plus the $125 nonrefundable deposit. Total not refunded: $225 per person cancelled.

Celebrity highly recommends the purchase of travel insurance. Any person that does not purchase travel insurance will lose all funds if they need to cancel for any reason, including weather and Acts of God.
