Early bookings are encouraged especially if you are travelling with your chapter and want to book rooms close together, or if you want a cabin in the cheaper or more popular areas.
Please book through our group booking (by sending the registration form to Obsidian) rather than booking privately through your own travel agent.
Only bookings made through our group booking will count towards our extra benefits, which are calculated based on the total number of cabins we have in our group booking. So booking with us benefits everyone as it increases our cabin numbers and thus our benefits. If booking the cruise privately through your own travel agent, please still send in a registration form as without this we cannot easily communicate or make arrangements. Gift bag of goodies only available for those who book as part of our group booking.
Based on the number of ladies already indicating they are interested (around 50 at this stage) we should be eligible for $37.50 per person onboard credit as well as an estimated $40-$50 refund after the cruise is completed – This refund amount is calculated on the total bookings, so cannot be confirmed until all bookings are fully paid. To make this refund easier to distribute, when there is more than one member from a chapter, refunds will be paid to the Chapter Queen (or representative) who will pass them to the members. Refunds will be processed a few weeks after completion of the cruise.
Once you send in your booking form, your details will be given to our travel agent who will contact you with your booking/payment information. Deposits are required within 3 days of confirmation of your booking. Payments for the balance of the cruise can be paid in instalments via Bpay, with the final payment being required by 9th Sept 2019.
If you are travelling alone and would like to be partnered with another Hatter to share a room, our travel agent can assist with this.
Sending in the booking form – If you have access to a laptop or PC you can open the registration form, type in your details in the spaces provided, then save the file and email it. If you would prefer you can print it out and either mail it in, or scan/photograph it and email the scanned/photo.
