As all customer details are taken over the phone, you have a responsibility to make sure all the details of your holiday are correct when you receive your booking confirmation. It is very important that the names and dates of births of all passengers are 100% correct and match the details on your passport.

You must notify us of any error made by Discover Cruising within 10 days of making a booking. Failure to do so may result in extra fees to correct errors.

Tickets will be sent via email or post no later than 7 days prior to departure although we do try and aim to get them to you 2-3 weeks prior where possible. Please ensure that you have logged on to your cruise line’s website and completed all the pre-cruise information that they require to enable us to access your tickets in a timely manner. Please go to the ‘manage my booking’ section for the cruise line website links.

For most packages, your balance is due 14 weeks prior to departure. The exact date will be on your confirmation invoice. To make payment, please call our team on 0800 368 8671, who can take payment using a debit or credit card.

We strongly recommend that you purchase adequate travel insurance from the day your booking is made. Without having travel insurance in place from the day your holiday was booked, you will not be covered in the event of cancellation. Please make sure it covers you for all the destinations being visited and if travelling on one of our cruise packages that a cruise is also covered.

If you wish to make any amendments to your holiday, please call our team on 0800 368 8671. Any amendments can only be made by the lead passenger on the booking.

Upon receipt we will contact the relevant suppliers of your holiday to ascertain the cancellation charges. We will then confirm the charges to you before cancelling the holiday.

Please call our team on 0800 368 8671, who can happily add any of these on to your booking.
