Norwegian Cruise Line will further extend the suspension of sailings through May 10 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, offering credits and refunds to travellers on affected cruises.
All guests affected will automatically receive their refund in the form of a future cruise credit valued at 125 per cent of the fare paid. These future cruise credits will be issued by Friday April 3, 2020 and can be applied anytime within one year of issue date and toward any Norwegian Cruise Line voyage through Dec. 31, 2022.
A lesser value refund is also available for guests who elect not to retain the bonus future cruise credits provided. These guests can elect to receive a 100 per cent refund of the fare paid to be reimbursed to the original form of payment ninety days after the request for a refund has been submitted. All refund requests must be received via the web form at www.ncl.com/case-submission/peace-of-mind, which will be made available from April 13 through April 27, 2020.
Below represents a re-cap of options for all affected guests of suspended voyages:
|Cruise Departure Date

Refund of Amount Paid
|March 13 – 17, 2020
||150% Refund as an FCC

In addition, all paid commissions are being protected and will not be recalled. Per NCL’s standard policy, commissions will be paid on all new bookings made with these FCCs. As an added incentive, all bookings made using an FCC through April 14, will be eligible for an additional 20 per cent discount off current fare, for all voyages July 1, 2020 through Dec. 31, 2022.
