Conditions constitute the agreement between you and us.

2. At the time of booking a cruise, you must pay for it in full. Once booked and paid for, all

cruise tickets are non-refundable but may be transferred at our discretion. Any requests

to transfer a booking to another date or time must be made 72 hours prior to the cruise

time, are subject to availability in the class and any promotional price of your booking and

weeks prior to the cruise date.

breakdown, for safety reasons or weather conditions), to substitute vessels without notice

(including any vessels of a third party), deviate from a vessel’s advertised route, change

any menu, service, schedule, program, performer or cruise fare. We will endeavour to

provide a similar quality vessel, route, menu, service, schedule, program, performance or

cruise fare (as the case may be) in these circumstances. In such circumstances, we will

not be liable for your direct or indirect loss, or to refund any fares or portions of fares, nor

inconvenience, or any other consequential loss suffered by you.

for any other losses or expenses incurred by you.

render due care and skill. You enter into this agreement and book and travel on our

cruises at your own risk. If however any guarantees, terms, conditions or warranties are

implied into this agreement by any law of the Commonwealth or New South Wales, the

exclusion of which would contravene that law or cause part or all of this clause to be void,

our option to the supply of the relevant cruise again or the cost of re-supplying

or proceeding must be brought no later than one (1) year from the same day. If you fail to

comply with either of these conditions, we will be forever discharged from all claims,

suits, actions and/or proceedings relating to or arising out of or in any way connected

with the cruise and we will be discharged from all liability whatsoever, including any

liability for negligence.

any related services to you. You must not bring any claims or actions against such third

consequences of that claim or action. You agree that in entering into this agreement, we

are acting as the agent of and trustee for each of our employees, officers, agents and

purpose of entitling each of them to enforce, have the benefit of and rely upon these

Terms and Conditions.

Responsible Service of Alcohol Policy

We aim to provide all patrons with a safe, friendly and pleasant atmosphere.

Whilst the consumption of alcohol is part of many people’s social life, we encourage those who

choose to drink to do so responsibly.

Unfortunately, some people over-indulge and can become unruly and disruptive. This type of

behaviour is unacceptable as it may threaten the enjoyment and safety of others and may result

in serious consequences. As the operator, we have a responsibility to help minimize this risk to

individuals, our staff and to the wider community.

We support the Responsible Service of Alcohol policy by use of the following strategies:

1. Develop food and beverage packages that encourage people to eat when drinking

2. Serve drinks in standard or recognizable sizes

3. Ensure that drinking water is freely available

4. Request proof of age

5. Training of staff in responsible service requirements and how to refuse service to

intoxicated patrons

6. Price low alcohol and soft drinks attractively to encourage their purchase

7. Discourage rapid or excessive consumption of alcohol

8. Deny entry or service to anyone who is already intoxicated

9. All necessary RSA signage will be visible to both patrons and bar staff
