Given that the resale of canceled space will likely result in a lost opportunity to sell other space, these fees are due regardless of resale. Windstar can only be responsible for refunding amounts actually received by Windstar Cruises. Travel agencies may impose their own cancellation fees. Agency fees of any nature are a matter to be decided on solely by the agency and guests. Windstar Cruises contracts are non-transferable. Name changes and departure date changes are considered reservation cancellations/re-bookings and are subject to cancellation fees. Changes require the prior approval of Windstar and may not always be possible. Guests who purchased the Travel Protection Plan must submit a claim through TripMate to receive refund or credit of cancellation fees as determined by the insurer.
