Why use it?

Fare code provides the option to check and select the best public and/or negotiated fare types along with their booking eligibility criteria.
Both of these endpoints allow you to select the best offer available, speeding and easing the process along.
How it works
The Cruise Rate Category service offers two endpoints:
- Fare code
- Category code
The Fare Code API is configurable as it allows you to request both for public and negotiated fare codes. For a given voyage id, it gets the list of public fare codes. If available, with the help of an optional group indicator qualifier, it also fetches the list of group/negotiated fare codes from the cruise supplier.
The service also provides an eligibility criterion based on an optional qualifier as per the fare code rules.
The Category Code API provides a list of cabin categories along with promotional offer details, if available. It provides a base price for different guest counts like single adult, double adult, third guest, and more along with deck information and guest occupancy restriction details.
Note : All the information is provided in real-time by the specific cruise supplier.
