A Future Cruise Credit (FCC) is the voucher issued by a cruise line in lieu of a refund with a monetary value to be used towards a future cruise vacation. Think of the FCC like a "promo code", which offsets the cost of the cruise fare. FCC's are a form of compensation for inconveniences caused by current events or a cancelled cruise.
FCC's are non-transferable and do have an expiration date, however, you are free to use them on any cruise offered by the issuing cruise line. Even if you originally booked directly with the cruise line or with a different agency, you can rebook your cruise with us with no headaches or more issues. In fact, with us behind your booking, you may qualify for even more value to truly maximize the FCC value!
Any Future Cruise Credit issued by a cruise line is "owned" by you - the guest - allowing you to rebook with any Travel Agency until it is applied to a booking. However, when you plan your next trip with us, our Bon Voyage Travel advisors will work hard to make sure you understand your options, know what your Future Cruise Credit (FCC) can be applied to and that you are getting the most value possible by combining your FCC with our exclusive rates, applying current promotions and adding extra amenities like bonus savings, shipboard credit, upgrades and more!
Every sailing is different, so it's important to know the details of your Future Cruise Credit (FCC), such as blackout sailing dates and expiration date. But in general, yes! FCCs are usually able to be combined with whatever promotions the cruise line has available at the time you decide to rebook. Keep in mind, you do not have to decide on your future cruise at the time you receive the FCC or when you first call our travel experts. Generally you will have a year or more to choose your future cruise and rebook.

Most cruise lines that cancelled cruise departures as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are offering generous Future Cruise Credits, many are even significantly higher than the amount you may have actually paid for their cruise. For this reason, we recommend taking the Future Cruise Credit, as the amount of the credit may be worth more than what you already paid.
There may also be opportunities for you to get added amenities, an upgraded stateroom or longer cruise, which our team can advise on, plus the additional benefits we can add to pack your future cruise with all the perks you deserve!
The value of your Future Cruise Credit can vary based on many factors. Typically, FCC is determined based on the base cruise or vacation fare, minus extras like taxes, fees, gratuities and more that may or may not be returned to you as a refund.
However, the itinerary, your stateroom, how much you paid for the original cruise, and possibly even your sailing date or destination can all affect the value of your Future Cruise Credit.
If your Future Cruise Credit exceeds the cost of the cruise, a new future cruise credit will be issued in the amount of the leftover balance or you may be able to upgrade your vacation in a variety of ways.
