The guest who places a reservation for a cabin onboard the Miami Groove Cruise will be considered that cabin’s “Lead Guest” and is the “owner” of the reservation. The Lead Guest is therefore solely responsible for initiating or authorizing changes to the reservation, and must agree in writing to any changes made to the reservation, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org The Lead Guest is not allowed to change their name within the reservation. At least one “original” and/or lead guest name must remain on the reservation. If all original guests cancel, this is considered a full cancellation without refund, and name changes will not be allowed. An original name is one that has been added to your reservation at the time of your initial deposit or payment.
You must contact Whet Travel to confirm name changes or corrections. Please call 877-438-9438 for email email@example.com for assistance.
