Because nearly all cruise lines were forced to suspend voyages due to COVID-19, chances are you haven’t set foot on a cruise ship since at least early 2020. If you are like most cruise lovers, you’re impatient to set sail again. The good news is that cruise lines are preparing to restart some itineraries so you can get back to what you love in 2021. Regent Seven Seas Cruises understands that the choice of when to restart travel is a personal one, so to help you feel confident in booking your next cruise, Regent Reassurance gives you flexibility and protection from losing your investment.
The Regent Reassurance policy allows guests who have paid in full have the option to cancel up to 15 days prior to their departure date and receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit, which can be applied to any new reservation within one year on any Regent voyage sailing before December 31, 2022.
It doesn’t cost a penny and currently applies to all reservations made by January 31, 2021, for Regent cruises embarking through October 31, 2021. Just be sure to tell your Covington vacation advisor you want it. (Note: these dates are subject to extension. Verify the current policy with your advisor.)
A Future Cruise Credit (FCC) is a virtual voucher issued to the guest based on the fare paid. Regent Reassurance FCCs include 100% of any cruise fare plus any airfare, pre- or post-cruise hotel stays, land programs, visas, and RegentCare Travel Protection Program purchases from Regent. It is important to note that airfare purchase separately, and any independent travel arrangements confirmed by another company will not be included in the Regent Reassurance FCC. Ancillary items that are prepaid, such as shore excursions, reservations for the Culinary Arts Kitchen, and taxes will be refunded to the original credit card used to purchase.
The Future Cruise Credit can be applied toward the cruise fare on a new or existing reservation made within one year of the FCC issue date, prior to final payment of the new cruise. The new cruise must be for the same passenger as the FCC is non-transferable. If the new cruise costs more than the FCC, you simply pay the difference. If it is less than the FCC, you will get a new FCC for the remaining amount, valid for the same term.
One caveat to the Regent Reassurance policy is that you must be paid in full to be eligible. If you haven’t paid in full yet and want to cancel, you can choose either:
- Make final payment and get the 100% Future Cruise Credit
- Accept the standard cancellation penalty (based on policy) and receive a refund for any balance
Regent Reassurance gives you the confidence to book your next cruise with the comforting knowledge that you have flexibility and choice over when you travel. So go ahead, contact our advisors to book your next Regent cruise today.
