A reservation can be held between three and seven days prior to a deposit being secured.

To reserve your voyage, a 25% deposit of the total cruise fare is required outside of 121 days of the voyage departure date.

All reservations within 121 days require full payment within three days of the reservation date.

Final payment on all reservations is required 120 days prior to the voyage departure date



If the voyage of your choice is unavailable, you may request to be placed on the waitlist by making a USD $1,000 per person deposit. If the waitlist clears, the deposit is applied toward your scheduled payment requirements. If the waitlist does not clear, your  deposit is fully refundable.


In the event that you need to cancel your voyage, you are required to contact our Reservations Department. If a cancellation request is received 121 days prior to the voyage departure date, and a deposit is already paid on the reservation, you will receive a full refund less an administrative fee of $250 per person.

Whilst this administrative fee is non-refundable, you may transfer this fee to a new reservation made within one year of the cancelled reservation.

Proper name changes such as "Bill" to "William" are accepted, yet double name changes are not permitted and constitute a cancellation.

Cancellation requests received within 120 days of the voyage departure date will be subject to the following cancellation fees:

  • 120 to 91 days prior to the voyage departure date:  25% cancellation fee
  • 90 to 61 days prior to the voyage departure date:  50% cancellation fee
  • 60 to 31 days prior to the voyage departure date:  75% cancellation fee
  • 30 days or less prior to the voyage departure date:  100% cancellation fee

Additional air, hotel, pre- and post-land programmes and special event fees may apply.

Refunds will be provided in the original currency and method of payment, according to our cancellation policy.

Advice on hotel accommodation pre and post cruise, as well as flights, transfers and luggage forwarding can be given at the time of booking by one of our Discovery Yacht Cruise reservation team.
