You have questions? - We have answers!
Can I plan my cruise by myself without a cruise consultant?
Certainly! In this case, you will bel responsible to make happy all members of your family or company (just imagine – 7 or 14 days you are on cruise with unhappy person!).
And this after all your hard work and hours of research, and still, you didn’t meet their expectations… Learn more about cruise consultants here.
Who needs service plans?
We recommend service plans for those who have a lot of options due to certain financial freedom. More financial freedom means more options to choose from.
So, you need a professional who can help you to make the informed decision.
People with limited financial freedom don’t have too much options to choose from. There are not too many cruise companies who operate in the lower price segment.
In this case, using professional service may be not necessary.
How can I pay for a service plan?
All service plans are paid by credit cards.
If I change my mind about buying a service plan, how can I get my money back?
All payment service plans are final and non-refundable.
If you decide not to go on cruise before we start to deliver service, we give you a credit for next service plan.
This credit is valid for one year from the date you gave us a notice.
If you booked a cruise with Aurora Cruises and Travel before you have paid for your service plan, the cost of the service plan will be refunded as an onboard credit for your cruise.
If I paid for the silver service plan, and then decided to take the gold one, how I can return money for the silver plan?
In this case, you will need to purchase a gold plan, and the cost of silver plan we will be refunded as onboard credit for your cruise.

“Mrs. Jastrjembskaia had a lot of mega-useful information of which we were unaware. We had more options to discuss that we even didn’t think about that we had in our four previous bookings made in the different cruise agencies. During online sessions, she told us about the cruise companies and options available for us. Nadia did research and updated our status in loyalty programs from the previous cruises and discounts available for a new cruise. Moreover, Mrs. Jastrjembskaia found our onboard booking that was cancelled and helped to return $ 200 back to our bank account.”
