Booking a cruise may seem daunting if you've never done it before. We strive to make this as painless a process as possible. Please read through the steps below and if you have any questions contact us using the email address or phone number listed at the bottom of every page.
Joining BGG@SEA requires three purchases:
See the Booking Process below for step by step instructions.
Participation in BGG@SEA requires you to book your cabin through us. If our cabin deposits are all sold out, that means our group is full. In that case, please join our waiting list here (link TBD).
The badge, here on Tabletop.Events (TTE), is our method of gathering your personal information that is required to submit to the cruise line to create your booking.
Each individual in your group needs a badge.
The badge information includes a required field for your Cabin Number. The Cabin Number comes from your Deposit purchase. As you are filling out your badge information, enter the cabin number you anticipate purchasing - a badge is required to be in your cart first before being able to purchase a Deposit in the Merch system.
If you end up purchasing a deposit for a different cabin, go back and edit your badge information after the purchase to change the cabin number to match your actual deposit.
The deposit is your way to secure the cabin you want. It is also our way of making sure we don't oversell our group.
Required deposit amounts within a category will vary based on occupancy and prevailing rates at the time of adding those cabins into our inventory.
After making a deposit you will pay for the rest of your cabin by purchasing a Remainder item by the final payment deadline.
The amount of this Remainder item is set by your cabin category and the occupancy (the number of people staying in the cabin).
You cannot just purchase a remainder without first purchasing a deposit. Any such purchases will be automatically refunded and the 5% refund fee will apply.
Because Tabletop.Events (TTE) is not built directly for cruises, there will be some adjustments. So, here's the step by step process:
At this point, you are registered and we will contact Royal Caribbean with your information and have the cabin you picked reserved for you. Once we get your booking confirmation number back from RCCL we will update it in the optional field in your badge information. We usually do this in "batches" so please allow a few weeks to a month or so to get a booking number to you.
Between the date of this initial purchase and June 26, 2024, you must make payment on the remainder of your cabin using the correct cabin type and occupancy. Any other items (travel protection, port transfers, internet packages) are optionally available but should also be purchased before June 26, 2024.
