Inoculations and disease prevention

You are fully responsible for arranging all necessary inoculations and/or disease prevention medication for all of the countries you visit whilst on your cruise. These must be organised in advance, and within the recommended time frames prior to your departure.

General vaccination guidance is available from the following website:


When booking a fly/cruise package, flights are wholly determined and allocated by the relevant cruise line. Therefore, carrier, routing, aircraft or timings cannot be guaranteed.  This may mean that the flight allocated to you may not necessarily be direct nor the quickest route available. Cruise Lines will always try their best to provide you with suitable flights that fall within the flight cost allocated to your booking. Sometimes a supplement can be paid which may allow you to choose your air arrangements. Please contact us if you have any specific requirements.


If your booking has been made on a “guarantee” basis, meaning that you have been guaranteed a particular grade of stateroom or higher, we will notify you of your cabin number upon receipt of this information from your cruise line. A particular cabin grade does not necessarily guarantee a particular deck or cabin type, merely an obligation by your chosen cruise line to allocate you the booked cabin grade or higher as per the cruise line’s cabin categories which can be found in their brochure/website. Once a cabin has been allocated you may still be upgraded prior to your departure at the discretion of the cruise line.

P&O/Cunard - Booking guaranteed cabins (no allocated cabin number at time of booking)


Different terms and conditions apply to bookings made under the Saver Fare promotion. Payment in full is required at the time of booking and fares are non-refundable. Therefore cancellation charges are 100% from the time of booking. Your stateroom number will be allocated anytime up to departure and once allocated can not be changed.

This promotion is not combinable with any other deal, including any offers of onboard credit. In addition, a transfer of your booking will not be permitted under this promotion and any amendments to your booking will be treated as a cancellation.

The Cunard Line/P&O Cruises booking conditions otherwise remain unchanged. 

Saver Fare promotion bookings will be part of the automatic E-Documentation initiative therefore all pre-voyage documentation will only be available online. If you have any questions concerning these conditions then please contact us on 0800 023 1273.

Any Cabin upgrade that has been given as a result bookings made on a “guarantee” basis cannot not be rejected by the passenger. The cruise line reserves the express right to upgrade where necessary. For cabin categorisation, please refer to your cruise line’s brochure/website.

Card Charges

We do not make any charges for credit card or debit card payments. We accept personal Visa Debit, Visa Credit, Mastercard & Electron. We do not accept American Express.

We can also accept (for balance payments) cheques and bank transfers.

By accepting these terms and conditions you are confirming that you would like to make a confirmed reservation for the cruise/air (where applicable) arrangements selected, and will be liable for any balance payment due as a result of your booking.
