Booking Reassurance Guarantee for Mr Bridge Groups

What are we doing and why?

With the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the English Bridge Union is unable currently to advise that even with mitigating actions, Bridge Clubs can generally re-open to run face-to-face games that comply with regulations. Guests may be concerned should their cruise operate but the advice from the English Bridge Union does not change, Mr Bridge may not be able to run face-to-face games onboard.
We are therefore introducing a new guarantee to reassure Mr Bridge guests and allow for more flexibility on travel dates should the bridge games not be possible to operate on their date of travel. These guests will now be able to book with the confidence that they can change their plans and move to another Bernard Magee Bridge cruise with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines providing they let us know within 2-weeks of their original cruise departure date.

What are the details / terms and conditions?

Applies to all bookings departing in 2021 regardless of booking date.
Whether face-to-face bridge games can operate onboard will be determined by the advice provided from the English Bridge Union and following agreement with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.
Request to transfer must be received by us no later than 14 days prior to departure.
This applies to both Freedom and Saver Fares. Where guests pay in full on a Saver Fare then the full amount can be applied to another cruise.
The replacement cruise must be of an equivalent value to the original cruise booking or higher unless transferring more than 90 days prior to departure (180 days for a long cruise) in which case the value of the transferred cruise must be at least 75% of the original booking value. Any difference in value is payable by the guest.
Guests can transfer their cruise once only (unless their subsequent cruise is cancelled in which case they can obviously move again).
The lead guest on the new cruise must be identical to the original booking.
All cruises are subject to availability at time of booking.
