How does the Waiting List work?

Andrew McMahon's Holiday From Real is currently full. If we have cancelations prior to departure (which we often do), we will fill those rooms via our Waiting List.

If you joined the pre-sale, you will have the chance to join the Waiting List before it opens up to the public. You can join the waitlist at or anytime after your Earliest Booking Time.

When signing up for the waiting list, you will be asked what type of stateroom you want. You will be required to put down a $199 deposit that is NON REFUNDABLE, except in the event we do not have a stateroom for you by September 9, 2024. This means that we will refund your deposit if we cannot accommodate your stateroom request by September 9, 2024, but you will forfeit your deposit if you decide to take yourself off the list before that time.

After September 9, 2024 we will send an email to everyone still on the waiting list asking if they would like to remain on it. If you would like to take yourself off of the waiting list at that time, you may do so and receive a check for the full refund of your deposit. If you choose to stay on the waiting list past September 9, 2024, and we cannot accommodate your stateroom request before the cruise sails, we will automatically refund your deposit a few weeks after sailing.

FIRST AVAILABLE - If you chose “First Available – Waiting List First Available”, you are committing to take any type of stateroom that may come available, including suites.
