Circumstances beyond our reasonable control and predictability.
If cancelled after commencement of your cruise, the refund will be pro rata to the number of days after cancellation.
During the cruise, if behaviour by a guest is considered by us to cause danger to persons or property or be unacceptable annoyance to another person, we may terminate your booking immediately and make a deduction from any amount due to be returned as compensation.
Disabilities, Illness and Medical (including dietary) Problems
We will do our best to cater for any special requirements you may have. Should any member of your party have a medical or dietary problem or disability which may affect your stay with us, you must provide full details before we confirm your Reservation Request, so we can advise you of the suitability of your chosen cruise. We regret we are unable to accommodate a full spectrum of impairment due to restricted access aboard and limited disabled facilities. If we are not advised in advance and find it necessary to cancel your booking at a later date, Cancellation Charges may be due.
