Celebrity Move UPSM – Upgrade Programme T&Cs
The Celebrity Move UPSM upgrade programme provides booked guests with an opportunity to submit an offer to Celebrity to upgrade from the original Celebrity Cruises stateroom category purchased to a higher stateroom category (the “Programme”).
The amount of the offer consists of the total per person amount that the guest is willing to pay for the opportunity to upgrade from the original booked stateroom category to a higher stateroom category (the “Offer”) and is separate and in addition to the amount paid for the original booking.
The Programme applies to cruises, sail dates, and stateroom categories selected by Celebrity in its sole and absolute discretion. Not all cruises, stateroom categories, or bookings will be selected for participation, regardless of availability.
Only a stateroom that has been purchased by either the guest or someone authorized to make an Offer on guest’s behalf is eligible for the Programme (the “Guest”). If Celebrity selects a booking to participate in the Programme, Celebrity will email an invitation to that booking to submit an Offer. Celebrity makes no representation to any person that an invitation to participate will be issued, an offer or upgrade will be reviewed, accepted, made available or processed, regardless of stateroom availability.
Valid Guest Email Required
A valid email address must be associated with the booking. Celebrity will send an invitation to the most recently updated email address that is associated with the booking. An email address may have been provided to Celebrity at the time of booking or by any guest on the booking who uses the online “My Cruises” pre-cruise planner tool. Only the Guest named in the email invitation or someone over the age of 18 who is authorized to make an Offer on Guest’s behalf is eligible to submit an Offer. By submitting an Offer, Guest represents to Celebrity that he or she has the authority to act on behalf of and to bind the person or persons named or included on the Offer to these Terms and Conditions and those persons named in the booking.
Submitting an Offer
Only one Offer may be submitted per eligible stateroom category. Guest may submit Offers for more than one stateroom category. Offers may be modified in accordance with the terms below. The Offer is a per person rate and applies to each of the first and second guests in the booking. The Offer sum will be charged to each of the first and second guests on the booking but will not be charged to third and higher guests if the Offer is accepted.
For single occupancy guest bookings, the Guest will be charged the total double occupancy Offer i.e. the Offer amount will be multiplied by 2 despite single occupancy.
Offers submitted by guests with an accessible stateroom already confirmed will be considered based on availability of accessible staterooms in the upgrade categories.
Prior to submitting your Offer, the Offer will be displayed for your review. If Celebrity accepts an Offer, the Guest who submitted the Offer will be obligated to pay the total Offer sum for each guest subject to the Offer.
During the Offer submission, Guest must provide credit or debit card information. If the Offer is accepted by Celebrity, the Offer sum will be charged to the applicable credit Card or debit card.
Acceptance and Rejection of an Offer
Celebrity reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine if an Offer is accepted or not, regardless of stateroom availability.
Celebrity may review and make a decision about an Offer at any time after the Offer is submitted, up to 48 hours before the cruise departure date.
If Celebrity accepts the Offer, Guest will receive an email confirming the acceptance of the Offer and the details of the upgraded stateroom booking (the “Upgrade”). Celebrity will assign the location of the stateroom in its discretion. The Upgrade will have the same number of berths as the original stateroom.
Immediately upon Celebrity’s acceptance of an Offer, the Total Amount will be charged to the Credit Card and becomes final and non-refundable. Refunds, credits, or changes may be issued only in the following circumstances: 1) Celebrity cancels the cruise, or 2) Celebrity cancels the cruise and re-books the guests onto another cruise in a stateroom class that is lower than the upgraded stateroom class. Any refund or credit will be limited to the Upgrade charge and credited back to the Credit Card in the same currency of the original charge; no other charges or fees of any type or nature will be refunded or credited.
If Celebrity does not accept the Offer, the original booking will continue and persons associated with the booking will travel in the original stateroom category. Celebrity will not offer and guests will not receive any compensation, consideration, or other benefit as a result of the Offer not being accepted.
Modifying or Cancelling the Offer
Guest may modify or cancel an Offer up to 72-hours prior to the cruise departure date, but only if the Offer has not been accepted by Celebrity and if the Credit Card has not been charged (the “Offer Period”). If Guest modifies or cancels the Offer during the Offer Period, the original Offer will be voided, and if applicable, replaced with Guest’s modified Offer. Voided or cancelled Offers will not be reviewed.
Modifying or Cancelling the Offer or Booking by Guest After Celebrity Accepts the Offer
If Celebrity has accepted the Offer, the Offer cannot be modified or cancelled, and Guest must pay the Total Amount regardless of whether Guest subsequently modifies or cancels the booking.
If Celebrity has accepted the Offer and Guest modifies or cancels the booking, the Upgrade and the Offer will be cancelled. Any applicable refunds made as a result of cancellation will be processed back to your travel partner unless your reservation is held directly. Celebrity will have no obligation to invite the Guest to submit a new Offer on the modified or new booking or to apply the Upgrade to the modified or new booking or to issue a refund or credit of any kind.
Modifying the Booking by Celebrity
If Celebrity for whatever reason re-books the Guest or any person associated with the booking to another cruise departing on a date that is different from the original booking date, Celebrity, in its sole discretion, may transfer any Offer made in relation to the original booking to the new booking, subject to availability of the upgraded stateroom category.
