If you want to change the ticket, the airline will charge a fee of at least $150 per ticket for any changes plus any increase in air fare. If you don’t travel on the scheduled departure date and do not call the airline to change prior to that date, your ticket will have no value. Note: If you lose your airline certificates they cannot be replaced. Please treat them as valuable, irreplaceable documents, because that is exactly what they are! HOTEL CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS Hotels consider a change in your arrival date to be a cancellation. Cancellation policies vary with each hotel. Please contact The Journeymasters for specifics. CARNIVAL CRUISE CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS Even if you change your reservation for the same ship for a different date, Carnival considers that a cancellation. • If you cancel 75 to 46 calendar days prior to sailing, a cancellation fee of $250 per person will be imposed. • If you cancel 45 to 30 days prior to sailing, a cancellation fee of $1,850 will be imposed. • If you cancel 29 to 15 days prior to sailing, a cancellation fee of $2,775 will be imposed. • Cancellations made within 14 days of sailing will forfeit your cruise.

Note: Cruise insurance does not cover pre-existing medical conditions.23
