Book worry-free is the sentiment in Norwegian Cruise Line's new BookSafe Travel Protection Plan, which fully reimburses guests booked on a cruise if they lose their job.
"In this challenging economic environment, we are offering a safety net for guests who want to book a cruise, but are uncertain about what the future holds in terms of their employment," said Andy Stuart, NCL’s executive vice president of global sales and passenger services. "Our BookSafe plan enables guests to book with confidence knowing that they will receive a full refund if they need to cancel their cruise because of job loss."
NCL says it's the first major cruise line to extend this service.
Effective February 26, guests who purchase the BookSafe Travel Protection Plan for any NCL cruise departing on or after May 1 are eligible for reimbursement of any cancellation fees if an insured guest loses their job as long as the person has been an active employee at the same company for at least one year.
NCL’s enhanced travel protection plan is available starting at $29 per person, depending on the cruise fare paid.
