3.5 Monthly payment plans :

3.5.1 For passengers who are unable to pay for their cruise in full at the time of purchase, we offer, as a courtesy, a payment plan that will divide your payment into monthly installments based on the date of your reservation. You will receive a payment schedule detailing the payment plan, including automatic monthly installments and the dates on which payments are due.

3.5.2 A non-refundable deposit (based on the number of passengers in your cabin) is due at the time of booking for each guest as follows:

Interior : 200€ /person

Sea view : €250 /person

Balcony : €280/person

Suite : On request

3.5.3 The balance of your cabin will be divided into equal monthly payments to be debited on the 5th of each month after payment of your initial deposit, with the final balance due no later than March 5, 2024.

3.5.4 Once the first passenger has made the initial payment for a multiple-passenger booking, an e-mail will be sent to the other passengers mentioned at the time of booking so that they can pay their deposit. Additional passengers included in the booking will have 48 hours from receipt of this e-mail to make their own payment. If a passenger does not make his or her deposit payment within this 48-hour period, the amount of that passenger's deposit will automatically be billed to the first passenger who made the initial payment. This measure guarantees the reservation for the whole group and avoids any inconvenience linked to the non-payment of additional passengers.

3.6 Promotional codes : Promotional codes offered by BBLACK are not cumulative, unless expressly indicated otherwise. This means that only one promotional code may be applied per transaction. Specific terms of use for each promo code, including expiration dates and restrictions, will be indicated in promotional communications or on the BBLACK CRUISE website.

3.7 Group reservations : It is imperative that you indicate that you belong to a group at the time of reservation by using the field provided for this purpose. This information is essential to enable us to accommodate you in cabins located close to each other. We do our best to accommodate all group requests, but this is subject to availability and capacity. However, if a customer or group member fails to indicate their group membership at the time of booking or fails to provide the necessary information, BBLACK cannot guarantee that group members will be accommodated in adjacent cabins. In such cases, if the customer wishes to change cabins to bring group members closer together after booking, additional costs may be charged depending on cabin availability.


3.5 Booking confirmation : Once full payment has been received, you will receive an email confirming your purchase of the BBLACK CRUISE. This email serves as proof of purchase and includes your PASS number (or bar code or QR code/MSC Croisières reservation number). It will not be possible to collect your PASS without this confirmation. Please check your e-mail, save and print the confirmation e-mail.


3.8 PASS withdrawal : You can collect your PASS directly from the BBLACK CRUISE welcome desk at the time of boarding. You'll need to present a printout of the confirmation e-mail we've sent you, together with proof of identity. Without these two items, your PASS will not be issued.

Important : the credit card is debited independently of the actual ticket collection. In any case, passes are paid for even if you do not collect them. Passes that have not been collected cannot be claimed and therefore cannot be refunded.




BBLACK CRUISE passes must be kept for the duration of the BBLACK CRUISE.

The resale of BBLACK CRUISE PASSES is STRICTLY forbidden. This will result in the cancellation of the PASS with no possibility of refund.

PASSes are essential for access to every BBLACK CRUISE event and must be presented at the entrance. The PASS may be checked at any time during the BBLACK CRUISE by our organization teams (during the party, for example).

To do so, the customer must send a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt to cancel the contract. When purchasing a PASS for the BBLACK CRUISE, payment is considered a contract that cannot be freely cancelled.

The purchase of a PASS cannot be cancelled and cannot give rise to a refund.

No-shows at BBLACK CRUISE do not entitle customers to a refund. The organization retains the total amount of the order.



7.1 BOOKING CHANGES BY PRINCIPAL GUEST ONLY : The passenger who books a cabin aboard the BBLACK CRUISE is considered the "principal guest" of that cabin and is the "owner" of the booking. The main guest is therefore solely responsible for initiating or authorizing changes to the booking, and must accept all changes to the booking, by sending an e-mail to

7.2 NAME CHANGE : All NAME changes can be made up to 30 days prior to departure (if authorized by the cruise line) and an administrative fee of €80 will be charged for each NAME change.

7.3 The main guest is not allowed to change his/her name in the booking. The name of at least one "original" and/or main guest must remain on the booking. If all original passengers cancel, this is considered a complete cancellation without refund, and name changes will not be allowed. An original name is a name that was added to your reservation at the time of your initial deposit or payment.

7.4 In all cases of name change, the NEW passenger must agree to resume payments where the previous passenger left off. Both the original passenger and the replacing passenger are responsible for reimbursing any amounts owed to each other. The cost of the name change fee, however, must be paid directly to BBLACK. Changing the names of all passengers from one room to another in the form of downgrading is not permitted. A downgrade is considered a cancellation of the original reservation.

7.5 CHANGING CABIN OCCUPANCY : Rates are based on the number of people in your cabin. Any change in occupancy will result in a rate increase or decrease, depending on the type of change.

7.6 CABIN UPGRADING / DOWNGRADING : Passengers may upgrade to a higher cabin category at any time, subject to availability. Downgrades are not permitted. Requests for upgrades should be sent by e-mail to the following address:
