A Future Cruise Credit (FCC) is similar to a store credit, but issued by cruise lines. Many times, instead of issuing a direct cash refund, cruise lines will issue a credit for the price of the cruise that can be used toward booking a different sailing. Most cruise lines are offering 125% of the cruise fare value if your cruise has been cancelled.
FCCs are issued for many different reasons including, but not limited to; medical waiver, redeployments and now recently, sailings impacted by COVID-19.
Terms and conditions may alter depending on the reason you received your credit. The information provided in the following FAQ is general. Please to refer to your correspondence from the cruise line, or your certificates, to view terms and conditions specific to your situation.

If you cancel — A new FCC will be issued if the cancellation is outside of standard penalties. If cancellation penalties apply, they will be deducted from the FCC amount and the remaining balance will be issued as a new FCC.
If the cruise line cancels — You will be issued a new FCC at 100% of the original value.

If the cruise fare for the new booking exceeds the FCC’s value, you will be responsible for the difference. If the new cruise fare is lower than the FCC’s value, the remaining balance may be issued in a variety of ways depending on the cruise line’s policy, including a new FCC or onboard spending. We will help you take full advantage of every dollar you have in credit, plus we’ll give you even more for booking with us.
At time of cancellation, the cruise line removed all promotional offers, amenities, and value adds, so they will not carry over to your future reservation. However, your Cruise Offers consultant will secure the latest promotions and value adds to make sure you get the most out of your cruise.
