Your investment in your next cruise is important, and we know that being able to book with confidence has never been more important than ever. We understand that booking a holiday during this unique time of uncertainty can feel a little risky, especially as we all eagerly wait for cruises to resume and restart at home and abroad. But as we all count down the days until cruises resume, we invite you to dream big, plan away and rest easy!

Looking for more information around COVID-19 and how it might impact your upcoming cruise? Check out our COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions page or our Future Cruise Credits page for additional information you need to know before booking your next voyage. We’ll answer all of your major concerns around how travel restrictions could affect your sailing so you can have confidence in your booking until cruises restart across Australia and worldwide.

Many cruise lines have a Book With Confidence Policy, or something similarly named, to help take the worry out of booking your next cruise holiday. Check out just some of the policy specifics below and book your cruise with confidence today:
