How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can contact Craig at any time at cnewton@runforfuncruise.com

What's the refund policy?

Refunds on your Run Package and your cruise are available up to final payment; please ask Kim for more details.

This is the Run Package; how do I book the cruise?

You can contact Kim directly in the office on Tuesday's and Thursday's toll free at 1-866-431-0130. She can also be reached at knewton@runforfuncruise.com or alternatively on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday by calling 905-387-3665

How long do I have to book the Run Package?

You have until July 31st, 2017 to complete all of your details regarding your Run Package

How long are the runs?

We will have a mix of 5K-10K runs/races planned. There will also be the possibility of trail runs as well based on popularity of previous itineraries.

Is there a medal for each port?

No, there is a participation medal from the RFFC awarded to you at the cocktail/awards ceremony the last day at sea.

Are there bag drops for each run?

We will work with our partners on each island to ensure your bags are well taken care of.

I'm a walker; am I going to feel out of place?

Absolutely not! The party is in the back with the walkers and we have a lot of them! We also have some of our events geared to having the walkers start the group off first which is fun!

Can I book online?

No. Our mantra has always been "Let Our Family Take Care Of Your Family" when we started the RFFC five years ago. It is our belief that in order to feel like you are a part of something special, we want to make you feel that way by having the "real world" interaction of speaking to you personally from the start of your reservation. By the time you depart the ship in San Juan at the end of the week, it is our goal to make you feel like "Family" and we have been very successful working like this.

What about group dinners so we can get to know people better?

We have secured group space in the main dining room of the Adventure of the Seas to have a set time each night for the RFFC with rotating seating so you will be able to meet and mingle with your fellow runners and walkers throughout the week.

Will there be shore excursions?

Yes, we will work on providing the group options for things to do after the run/race events are finished in the mornings.

Is there a "Host" hotel?

We are currently working with Royal Caribbean to provide a host resort for those that are coming into San Juan early. More details will be provided once that property is selected.

I'm a runner but the rest of my family does not run. Will there be things for them to do?

Yes there will. Family and friends are the cornerstone of the trip as they provide the most energy at the events. Information provided to the runners/walkers through continued email updates can be passed along to family and friends so they can "stay in the loop" We welcome them to the events we have set up and will provide addtional info.

This sounds awesome! Is is better to wait to book for a better deal?

No. The group space we have blocked is based on a first come first serve basis. Once particular categories are sold out, people are then moved to the next category at that available rate. It is best to book the cruise early with a low refundable deposit, then register for your Run Package which is refundable as well to final payment.

I'm a member of a running club; can I promote to them?

Yes you can and we love the fact you want to spread the word of the RFFC! Talk to Craig at cnewton@runforfuncruise.com for more details on working with running clubs and Thank You!
