Unless you purchased a protection plan, such as the Vacation Protection Plan from Carnival Cruises, at the time of booking your cruise, you will most likely not receive a refund. Most cruise companies require you to provide a cancellation notice between 70 to 80 days prior the sail date in order to qualify for a full refund. Even if you bought a protection plan, you only get a full refund if you missed a cruise at a port for medical reasons. If you just missed the cruise for being late, then you will receive a partial refund. For more information, read our feature article What to Do when You Miss a Cruise on CruiseReviews.com.
