The starting point in cases like this is an examination of the relevant policies/information, which "seems" to be at this link: Road Scholar Updates & New Policies

This site does offer cruises, but in the above link it refers to payments as "tuition credits" in the Frequently Asked Questions section:
"If you’re interested in participating with Road Scholar at a later date, but aren’t ready to enroll in another program right now, you can opt for us to hold your payment on file as a tuition credit to be used on a future Road Scholar learning adventures. Your tuition credit is fully refundable if at any time in the future you should decide that you are unable to travel with us again."​
What does that mean exactly? It appears to me that it says you first accept a credit and THEN later you are eligible for a refund.

But Road Scholar is new to me, so I could be wrong.

Which year was the cruise scheduled? Do the cruises operate like the land tours, using different nomenclature like tuition instead of fare? There might be a hint there. I agree with VoR, their FAQs state that a tuition credit is refundable. Why are you asking? Is there something we can help you with?
