DCL Final Payment and Cancellation Policies

Deposit
For all bookings which require a deposit, the amount due is 20% of the cruise fare. This deposit policy applies to all stateroom Guests (including children under age 3). Deposits are fully refundable up until time for final payment for all rooms except for Concierge rooms. Those deposits are non-refundable but the cruise date can be moved and the category change, but they remain non-refundable.

The deposit requirement is for:

  • All new bookings

  • Bookings in which the sail date has changed

  • Bookings that are reinstated

To finalize your reservation, simply apply payment. Your full and final payment depends on the length of your cruise; the embark and debark port; if you are staying in a suite/concierge stateroom or a non-suite/non-concierge stateroom; and if you are sailing on a Holiday date:
