FAQs

• Are passports required? Passports are not required for this cruise. The State Department rules permit passengers to travel with an Enhanced Drivers License or an original birth certificate with an unexpired, government-issued photo ID on closed-loop cruises (those that begin and end at the same port). If you have a passport though, please bring it! They are preferred and can be useful should you encounter an emergency situation at a Port of Call.

• What happens after I pay the deposit to select my cabin on the cruise? Once the deosit is paid for each person in your stateroom is paid, you’ll receive a confirmation email right away… then you’ll receive additional email updates as reunion details become available. Passengers in each cabin will receive an invoice from Sagioia Travel that allows them to pay for the cruise on their own schedule. Cruise payments can be made incrementally or all at once, however, full payments must be made by April 19, 2024.

• Can I use Carnival gift cards to pay for my cruise? Yes, you are able to apply gift cards towards your cruise balance. To do so, please contact Joy Graham at (404) 493-4821.

• What are the cancellation/refund policies? All cruise payments are fully refundable until May 1, 2024. Beyond this date, cancellation penalties are as follows: • On or after May 2, 2024 -- $150/pp • On or after May 23, 2024 – 50%/pp • On or after June 18, 2024 – 75%/pp • On or after or July 3, 2024 – No Refund

• Can I book the cruise on my own? You can book your cruise on your own, but you’ll be outside of the family reservation and won’t be able to join us for any designated onboard activities (family dinners and gatherings, specifically).

• Are meals included? The Carnival Glory has an assortment of dining options that are included with your cruise fare. From made-to-order burgers at Guy’s Burger Joint and three course meals in the Main Dining Room to kids meals and a Seaday Brunch, there’s sure to be something that satisfies your palette. Additionally, a steakhouse, seafood shack and coffee bar all offer specialties, but do cost extra.

• How do I take advantage of a Carnival sale rate? If you come across a Carnival sale that you’d like to take advantage of, just give Joy a call – she has access to the same rates and can secure them for you. Usually, the difference lies in the required deposit. Carnival sales often include a reduced deposit (typically $50/pp), but they are not refundable. With the family reservation, all payments are refundable until May 1, 2024… yep, including the $26 reservation fee (less processing fees).

• Can I select my own stateroom? Yes! When you’re ready to make your $150/pp cruise deposit (and you have the name and birthdate of your cabin-mate), reach out to Joy at 404.493.4821 and she’ll share the options and reserve the stateroom you select.

• Will I need travel insurance? Travel insurance is optional, but always encouraged. Learn all about Carnival Vacation Protection here: https://www.carnival.com/about-carnival/vacation-protection

• Where is the cruise port located? Port Canaveral is located east of Orlando, FL. If you’re arriving by plane, fly into Orlando International Airport, but please plan to do so with enough time to join us for our Bon Voyage party on July 14. If you can’t make that, you’ll want to make sure that you’re at the cruise port in time to embark at 3:30 PM ET on July 15. If you’re driving, follow directions to the appropriate Terminal at Port Canaveral. Maps and parking information can be found on the Port Canaveral website: https://www.portcanaveral.com/Cruise/Cruise-Parking,-Directions-Rates.

• What if I don’t know who my cabin-mate will be? If you know you’ll be joining us on the cruise, go ahead and pay the $26 reservation fee. This fee locks in our group totals with Carnival. We’re happy to help with pairing up family members to share a cabin on the cruise. (And we’ll be sure to connect you beforehand.)

• How do the beverage packages work? Carnival offers two Drink Packages: Bottomless Bubbles (sodas and juice) and Cheers! (adult beverages). Learn more about both options here: https://www.carnival.com/drink-packages
