How much do tickets cost?
The price of the ticket depends on the cruise itinerary as well as what type of cabin you select. Generally, prices start at around $1,000 and go up to about $2,000
Prices go up during the sales process, in order to encourage early registration (it helps our planning tremendously.) if you want the best price, register as early as possible.
Do you offer refunds?
Yes. We offer full refunds up to 90 days before departure.
If you elect to pay by deposit, the deposit is non-refundable.
We regret, that due to high fixed costs we’re unable to offer refunds within 90 days of departure.
Can I bring my family or partner along?
The Polyglot Cruise is designed to be family-friendly, so this is highly encouraged!
Each cabin can fit up to 4 people, and kids under 10 can come along at a heavily discounted price.

Passport and Visa Requirements
It is the responsibility of the participant to ensure they have correct travel documentation and visas in place before coming on the Polyglot Cruise.
We cannot be held responsible for insufficient travel documents.
To research visa requirements you can use the page: VISAHQ
Is insurance included?
Health insurance is not included in the ticket. It is the responsibility of the participant to make sure they have health, travel, and accident insurance which covers cruise ship trips.
Without proper insurance you could be liable for insane medical costs, so we highly recommend spending time and energy getting this right before you go.
Is there internet on the Polyglot Cruise?
The cruise line offers WiFi throughout the ship at an additional cost. The price depends on how much data you’d like.
You can also get a social media package, which for €5/day gives you access to all social media networks onboard the ship.
Be aware that because we’re on a ship in the middle of the mediterranean that the internet may be unstable and slow at times.
Because we’re doing a lot of stops in European ports there will be plenty of opportunities to roam or connect to WiFi on land.
Will my phone work on the cruise ship?
When we are in port you can use your phone as normal by connecting to the local signal.
When we are on sea the cruise line offers a satelite GSM network which can be outrageously expensive.
The Polyglot Cruise cannot be held responsible for roaming charges incurred while on the trip.
We recommend the following:
- Disable roaming in your phone settings
- Enable flight mode whilst on the ship
- Check with your network provider to ensure you’re able to roam on land abroad without incurring massive fees. Some companies offer packages or addons you can buy to use your allowance abroad.
What does a typical day look like on the Polyglot Cruise?
The advantage of the Polyglot Cruise is that you’re in complete control of what you want to do every day.
We generally arrive in port in the morning, giving you time to get off and explore (if you so choose) before the official event programme begins in the afternoon shortly before dinner.
After a few sessions (keynotes, workshops, panels) we’ll all go off to dinner and enjoy the rest of the evening.
However, it’s really up to you. If you want to spend the whole day in the hottubs you’re more than welcome.
Are we the only ones onboard?
No – we’ll have a private area for the presentations, keynotes, and ceremonies but we’ll be sharing the rest of the ship with other passengers.
Can’t find what you’re looking for?
No worries. Send us a message via the contact form and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
