The alternate, or person completing the prize claim form, will be liable for claiming the taxes paid on their behalf.
If, for any reason, after a taxable prize has been claimed (completed the promotional prize claim form), the winner cannot take the trip, the trip can be transferred to someone else chosen by the winner. This transfer must occur prior to the booking deadline of Dec. 16, 2017. Only one transfer is allowed. The original winner, who completed the promotional prize claim form, remains liable for claiming the prize and taxes paid on their behalf for tax reporting.
If the winner and/or the winner’s guest do not board the ship in time for sailing, there will be no alternate sail date provided or credit towards another cruise trip with Royal Caribbean International®. The winner will not receive any reimbursement for the trip. However, the winner will still be eligible to win the top prize of $50,000 and/or a $500 debit card (both to be awarded during the cruise). The winners of the drawings that occur on the cruise will be liable for taxes for the complete value of the prize.

Valid forms of ID include: a current passport or BOTH a valid state photo ID AND original birth certificate.

This card will only be charged if the ship credit exceeds the amount provided in the prize package. The ship credit provided is non-refundable and must be used while on the ship.
Prize winners who do not elect to take a guest, or whose guest, for any reason, does not take the flight and/or the cruise, are still subject to the full tax amount paid on the complete prize value.
If a winner or guest misses the flight, the winner will be responsible for any additional flight or travel costs to make the ship departure or return home.
