CAN I MAKE CHANGES TO MY RESERVATION OR TRANSFER MY CABIN TO ANOTHER PARTY?
Yes. However, the Passenger who places a reservation for a cabin onboard is considered the cabin’s “Primary” passenger, and is therefore solely responsible for initiating or authorizing all changes to the reservation. Downgrading your cabin to a cabin of lesser value is not allowed.
Primary passenger name changes are considered a CABIN TRANSFER and are subject to a transfer fee of $250 USD.
No transfer or change of a reservation to a NEW passenger shall be made without On The Blue’s prior written approval, to be given or withheld in On The Blue’s sole discretion. Subject to the preceding sentence, under no circumstances shall a Passenger or any person or entity acting on Passenger’s behalf (i) sell a reservation, cabin, or berth to any other person or entity for more than the price paid by the Passenger, or (ii) offer the reservation, cabin or berth to any other person(s) or entity(s) as a prize or award in a drawing, contest, lottery, sweepstakes, raffle or similar event of any kind; a transfer in violation of this sentence shall not be permitted, and the Primary passenger shall indemnify and hold harmless On The Blue from and against any damages, losses and claims suffered by On The Blue as a result of a violation by Primary passenger, or any other passenger listed on the reservation, of this paragraph. If a Primary or other passenger wishes to transfer the reservation, cabin or berth to a NEW passenger, the Primary passenger shall send a request in writing for approval of this transfer to On The Blue, along with (i) the reason for the requested transfer and a statement that the transfer will not violate this paragraph, (ii) the NEW passenger name, and (iii) a completed CELEBRITY CRUISES Passenger Contract for the NEW passenger. If the request is approved by On The Blue, the NEW passenger must make full deposit payment amount due based on the above due dates. Once that payment has been made, then the applicable amounts paid by the ORIGINAL traveler will be refunded directly to the original traveler. Any NEW passenger sailing with a reservation transferred to him/her in violation of this paragraph may be denied boarding by On The Blue or, in On the Blue’s sole discretion, removed by On the Blue from the Cruise at any port, at such NEW passenger’s sole cost.
Through March 31, 2017
Each cabin will be entitled to one (1) complimentary name change (excluding Primary passenger) or passenger addition, for second, third or fourth passengers, upon request in writing to On the Blue. Any Additional changes prior to March 31, 2017 will be assessed a $50 fee for each occurrence.

CAN I GO ON THE CRUISE IF I’M PREGNANT?
Pregnant women are highly recommended to seek medical advice prior to travel at any stage of their pregnancy. Women who are up to 23 weeks pregnant at the end of the cruise are required to produce a medical certificate of fitness to travel. Women who will be 24 weeks or more at the time of embarkation for health and safety reasons are not allowed sail. Celebrity Cruises reserves the right to request a medical certificate at any stage of pregnancy and to refuse passage if the Carrier and/or the Master are not satisfied that the Passenger will be safe during the passage.
DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?
ALL DEPOSITS ARE UNDER FULL PENALTY – PROTECT YOUR TRAVEL INVESTMENT!
As stated in the Terms and Conditions, due to the nature of this event, all deposits on The Moody Blues Cruise are NON-REFUNDABLE and therefore, we highly recommend travel insurance.
Travel Insurance is NOT included in your Moodies Cruise Reservation. The purchase of insurance is the sole responsibility of each guest sailing and is NOT offered through The Moody Blues Cruise. It is up to each guest to research and decide on a 3rd party vendor of their choice for insurance. On the Blue Cruises, Inc. and The Moody Blues Cruise are not responsible for any losses, including any and all deposits, due to lack of travel insurance.
