Cruise with Confidence policy, Cancel for any reason protection and Best Price Guarantee

To ease concerns of this unique time in the travel and events industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Whet Travel have created a Cruise with Confidence policy to protect those who book. Meaning, if our sailing is postponed or canceled:

  • You will receive a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) for the full amount with Whet Travel
  • FCC valid for 2 years
  • Your money is protected
  • Valid to anyone who is booked for Groove Cruise Miami 2023

There is also ‘Cancel for Any Reason’ Travel insurance via Travel Guard is also available (for most states) for additional protection.

If you are concerned about a personal or family emergency, a work situation that may arise or a concern if a pet is sick (literally any reason), you can get the majority of your money back prior to sailing. Certain stipulations apply. If you need assistance or have any questions, please email us at

We have also created a Best Price Guarantee, ensuring:

  • All guests booked are getting the best price possible
  • If we offer a lower price on the same Stateroom type, you can contact us to get your reservation adjusted
  • Note: this does not apply to cruise line prices as Groove Cruise is a private charter and is very different from a typical cruise


On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. Therefore, any losses for trip cancellation, trip interruption and/or trip delay caused by or resulting from quarantine due to COVID-19 is not considered “Unforeseen” and will not be covered under the terms and conditions of this insurance policy.

However, this does not affect any Medical Benefits available under the insurance policy. If you contract COVID-19 prior to departure, you would be covered for Trip Cancellation, if you have a confirmed and documented diagnosis and/or you are medically unable to travel at the time of departure due to COVID-19. If you contract COVID-19 while on a covered trip, you would be covered for Medical Expense and Trip Interruption/Curtailment benefits if you have a confirmed and documented diagnosis.--
