Deposit and Final Payment

A deposit of $500 per person is required to secure a confirmed reservation for your cruise.

Deposit Amount Final Payment Due Date
$500 per person Varies per reservation

Viking accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards.

The final balance is due no later than 90 days prior to sailing. Promotions may have different payment terms—please refer to the offer. All reservations are subject to cancellation if payments are not received by the due date.

Cancellation and Refunds

Cancellation and refund policies vary by tour operator, with penalties generally increasing as the departure date approaches. If a cancellation occurs, the following charges will be assessed:

Cancellation Fees for Cruises (other than Grand & World Cruise Voyage)
Days Prior to Departure Cancellation Charge
120 days or more $100 per person
119-90 days 20% of full fare
89-70 days 35% of full fare
69-50 days 50% of full fare
49-30 days 75% of full fare
29-0 days 100% of full fare

Full fare is defined as the full cost of any cruise, land, or air component purchased from Viking. All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to Viking. For any Viking cruise booking the following situations are considered cancellations and penalties will apply: changes to departure date; substitutions of itinerary; substitution of another person for original booked guest(s); or changing to a promotional fare. For all air-inclusive packages cancelled after issuance of an airline ticket, the air portion of the refund, if any, will be processed only after the return of airline ticket. Once a cruise/land booking has a deposit or air is paid in full, all changes are subject to a $30 charge per change.

Deposit, payment, and cancellation terms may differ for group bookings.

Timetables and rates are subject to change, and exceptions may apply for special departures. Please confirm payment and cancellation policies with your Vacations To Go travel counselor at time of booking.

Purchase of travel insurance may reduce or eliminate the cancellation fees outlined above. For more information, please call your Vacations To Go travel counselor.
