NAME AND CABIN CHANGE POLICY

The guest who places a reservation for a cabin onboard the Groove Cruise Miami will be considered that cabin’s “Lead Guest” and is the “owner” of the reservation. The Lead Guest is therefore solely responsible for initiating or authorizing changes to the reservation, and must agree in writing to any changes made to the reservation, by emailing captainsupport@whettravel.com

Name Changes
All guest NAME changes can be made up until 30 days prior to sailing (if allowed by the cruise line), and will be assessed the following administrative fees per name change:

$50.00 per person, per change for name changes through final payment date
$100.00 per person, per change for name changes through 30 days before sailing
$200.00 per person, per change for name changes within 30 days of sailing

The Lead Guest is not allowed to change their name within the reservation. At least one original and/or lead guest name must remain on the reservation. If all original guests cancel, this is considered a full cancellation without refund, and name changes will not be allowed. An original name is one that has been added to your reservation at the time of your initial deposit or payment.

In all cases of name changes, the NEW guest must make full payment. Once that payment has been made, then the applicable amounts paid by the ORIGINAL guest will be refunded directly to the original guest, less the cost of the name change fee.

Cabin Changes

All guest CABIN changes can be made up until 30 days prior to sailing (if allowed by the cruise line), and will be assessed the following administrative fees per name change:

$50.00 per person, per change for name changes through final payment date
$100.00 per person, per change for name changes through 30 days before sailing
$200.00 per person, per change for name changes within 30 days of sailing

Your cabin number is subject to change without notice at the discretion of the cruise line and/or Whet Travel.

Rates are based on the number of people in your cabin. Changes in occupancy will result in a rate increase or decrease depending on the type of change.
