RESERVATION CHANGES & CANCELLATIONS: FEES AND PENALTIES
Cancellations: The following cancellation penalties will apply to any guest that cancels their reservation. These cancellation penalties will NOT be waived by Royal Caribbean regardless of the reason (even in extenuating circumstances or emergencies that would prevent you from traveling such as an injury, illness, or a death affecting you, a family member, or your traveling companion) and apply on a per guest basis. There are NO exceptions to these cancellation policies; for this reason, we strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance to protect yourself from any financial losses if you need to cancel unexpectedly. Ignite is not responsible for any financial losses, including any and all deposits, due to lack of travel insurance.

Please note: Name changes are at the discretion of Royal Caribbean, at least one of the original names (Main Guest) must remain on the reservation; changing all guest names in a reservation is not allowed and will result in the entire reservation being cancelled.

If the room costs were split evenly between guests, the remaining guests will be responsible for any price increases that result from an occupancy change.
Financial Responsibility: ”Per person” pricing is determined by splitting a cabin’s total price between the number of guests booked in it. Please note that we allow you to split the reservation (cabin) costs evenly with your cabinmates as a courtesy only. If you split financial responsibility with your cabinmates and one cabinmate drops out, or does not pay for their portion, the remaining guests are responsible for any change in pricing that result from an occupancy change.
Refunds: Refunds will be processed directly to the original credit card(s) used for payment (minus any applicable penalties/fees).
Please note that any fees charged for administration of a reservation are non-refundable. These non‑refundable fees include, but are not limited to: reinstatement/cancellation/late payment fees, processing fees, reservation change fees, name change fees, and travel protection premiums.
