Norwegian Cruise Line has extended its temporary “Peace of Mind” policy through November 30, 2020. Before the change, the policy was only valid through October 2020.
Norwegian’s website outlines the policy:
Peace of Mind is the company’s new temporary policy that allows new and existing (non-charter) individual and group bookings (booked by July 31, 2020) embarking through and including November 30, 2020 to cancel their booking up until 48 hours from the start of their vacation date and receive a 100% future cruise credit (FCC).
The FCC may be used for sailings that embark on or before December 31, 2022. The new booking must be made within one year of the cancelation date.
What to Know About The Policy
The future cruise credit is only the cruise portion of your fare, taxes, and fees will be refunded back to your original form of payment. It’s important to know that if a guest wants to cancel their cruise and receive a cash refund, they must purchase a travel insurance policy that includes cancel for any reason coverage. As long as you cancel for a covered reason, you’ll be eligible a refund.
