OUR HERITAGE ON THE RIVER 2008 - Regensburg, Germany

With roots throughout Europe and along distinctive Austrian and German waterways, a passion for river cruising is a part of our very DNA.

Our Co-Founder and President, Rudi Schreiner, was born in Vienna, Austria, at the heart of the Danube River. After completing a college research expedition in Nepal, Rudi ventured to Peru, where, in 1975, he built a raft and set sail along the Amazon River. Meanwhile, our Executive Vice President, Kristin Karst, was discovering the magic of travel in her hometown of Dresden, Germany, sailing with her family along the Elbe River. A thousand miles away, our beloved late Co-Founder Jimmy Murphy was realizing his passions for people and travel in Ireland, planting the seeds for his future career. Little did they all know they would one day lay down roots in the United States and follow the rivers back to Europe.

THE BIRTH OF A FAMILY In 1992, the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal was completed and Rudi’s visionary leadership later earned him the industry title of the “Godfather of River Cruising.” Twenty years later, Rudi joined forces with Kristin, who had emerged as a leader in river cruising, and Jimmy, the owner of Brendan Tours, to start their own California-based company: Amadeus, soon to be known as AmaWaterways. A DREAM WAS BORN In 2006, we launched our first fully-owned and operated ship, the AmaDagio – designed by Rudi – on the Danube River. “It was the realization of a lifelong dream to build my own river ship,” said Rudi. A L ASTING LEGACY After helping fulfill the dreams of tens of thousands of guests, Jimmy passed away in 2014. Staff unanimously decided to name one of AmaMagna's new dining venues – Jimmy’s Wine Bar & Restaurant – in his memory. Today, our Co-Owner Gary Murphy carries on his father Jimmy’s legacy and warmth of spirit.

1975 - Amazon River, Peru

OUR STORY CONTINUES From our earliest memories in Europe, to our first itineraries on the Danube River, to our fleet of 26 ships sailing 16 unique waterways through Europe, Asia, Africa and soon South America, we look forward to sharing our heritage and showing you the world – one river at a time. AmaWaterways.com | 5

THE HEART OF AMAWATERWAYS: OUR PEOPLE “Ama” means love – and we put love in everything we do, ensuring you have a remarkable experience from the moment you reserve your river cruise throughout every step of your journey on river and land – and even after you’ve returned home. Attentive and professional, our crew brings passion into their journey every day. It spills forth from every bottle they uncork, every plate they serve and every smile they share as they go above and beyond to ensure you always have a memorable experience. From the Cruise Manager who drove a beloved teddy bear to the airport to meet his grateful young owner to the Hotel Receptionist who biked into town to retrieve a cherished purchase left behind, AmaWaterways’ crew is more than just highly trained – they “sparkle.”

8 |

Throughout your experience, you’ll get to know your waiters, bartenders and stateroom stewards personally as they greet you by name, remember your unique dietary preferences and treat you as esteemed members of their own family. They’ll also take every recommended preventive measure into account on board, adhering to our exceptionally strict standards of hygiene, as your health and safety are our top priority.


MEET YOUR CRUISE MANAGER “AmaWaterways employs the type of people that, as a parent, you hope your kids will turn out to be.” – Steve L., Travel Advisor

YOUR FRIENDLY CONFIDANT Friendly and warm-hearted, our Cruise Managers also have extensive experience in providing exceptional levels of personalized service. Often hailing from the countries we sail through, our Cruise Managers are extremely knowledgeable about the places you visit, making them your ideal destination concierge. Meet them before you sail at AmaWaterways.com/cruisemanagers. ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU Your highly experienced Cruise Manager is there to share “insider advice” and “the secrets” with you every step of the way while on the river or on shore at your hotel. Whether it’s helping you find the perfect place to buy a special gift, arranging for a unique dining experience or providing information on the places you will visit, they are there for you.

PREMIER VINEYARDS & CELLAR TOURS One of the most delightful aspects of Wine Cruises is visiting Europe’s unique vineyards and wineries. Walk through France’s Saint-Émilion and then visit the 14th-century Château de Montaigne, the former residence of French philosopher Michel de Montaigne. Or visit Würzburg, Germany’s stunning UNESCO-designated Residenz Palace, home to a beautiful wine cellar. These are only a few of the amazing places you can experience. AUTHENTIC ENCOUNTERS Unique experiences add to the rich tapestry of local culture, always making for memorable encounters. Walk alongside artisans and vintners through the same fields in which their ancestors toiled and discover how Old World traditional techniques are being influenced by innovative, sustainable practices introduced by a young generation of winemakers. Learn how best to pair decadent chocolate with wine; discover how olives transform into the Mediterranean’s prized nectar, olive oil; or be tempted by everything from apricot jams and strudels to apricot brandy while in Austria’s enchanting Wachau Valley.

More than windmills and chocolates

“As a river captain, Antwerp’s Red

Star Line Museum and the Flood Museum near Veere captivated me with the history of the Dutch & Belgian Waterways. Being of Dutch ancestry, it was also incredible to bike to the very storefront in Dordrecht where my great-grandparents once sold fish. But I was most moved listening to our wonderful Belgian guide share true stories about the Battle of the Bulge.” - Captain Ron, Europe

A sailing that strikes a chord

“I am so thrilled for our new classical

music themed cruises on the Danube! In Budapest, I have often come upon a trio playing delightful Hungarian gypsy music on a street corner or in a café and just love when local violinists serenade us during dinner on board. When I stroll through the stately streets of imperial Vienna, I like to imagine Mozart or Beethoven drawing inspiration from the city’s grandeur. To attend a chamber concert in one of Vienna’s many palaces is sure to be a highlight. That we will bring our guests even closer to Europe’s rich musical history as we sail down Strauss’s blue Danube is truly exciting!” - Susan Murphy, Godmother AmaCello

RIVER CRUISE DISEMBARKATION

An anniversary to remember

“Mitchell and I left a little piece of

our hearts on the Danube River. Linz swept us off our feet as our guide shared Mozart’s fascinating history there and led us past vibrant art museums and the New Cathedral. I could write a love letter to Passau, where we browsed through galleries in Artists’ Alley. We adored our lovely gentle walkers’ tour in Dürnstein and the exclusive Oktoberfest in Vilshofen where we got to know fellow guests. But our best nights were spent simply celebrating our anniversary and stargazing on the Sun Deck.” - Maureen G., past guest

A song we'll sing forever

“Our week-long journey encompassed

four countries, three capital cities and breathtaking tucked-away towns we’d never have discovered on our own. We pedaled through Vienna, hiked to the ruins of Dürnstein Fortress and traced The Sound of Music in Salzburg. Each morning, we woke to beautiful views; each night we sipped a local wine as we sailed away. It was like a song we’d never sung and want to hear again.” - Jenny P., past guest

Historic town squares and vineyards

“We’ve been fortunate to sail multiple

journeys with AmaWaterways on the Danube River, but we particularly enjoyed this itinerary because it ­includes a visit to Nuremberg. It is a fascinating German city with a castle and beautiful town square and our excursion covered a lot of history. Considering we are both wine lovers, getting to know the wines of the Wachau Valley was also a great experience for us.” - Chuck and Karen G.

“Starting our journey with Vilshofen’s

Oktoberfest was a great way to get a taste of German culture. Budapest – one of four capitals we visited – has so much character. I would go back to Romania in a heartbeat and I have been craving Bulgaria's luscious yogurt ever since our tasting tour in Vidin. We sailed in April and were fortunate to celebrate two Easters and learn some Orthodox holiday traditions from the crew. It was an unforgettable journey, both sobering and uplifting! ” - Kathy D., solo traveler

“I’m of German descent and wanted to

“After this sailing, my best Christmas

memories are intertwined with visions of the Danube’s spectacular capitals. I still use the glühwein mugs I collected, each as unique as the markets themselves. I especially loved how close we were to the cities – and how beautifully decorated the ship was. I walked to town in the evening to shop and always found my way back to the beacon of AmaWaterways light on the river!” - Olis C., 10-time solo traveler

Reconnecting on three rivers

“My girlfriends and I couldn’t decide

which river to sail so we ended up agreeing on the cruise that let us experience three rivers in one journey! We had great fun pedaling along the Main and Moselle rivers, but our most precious moments were spent on the Sun Deck sharing stories and sipping wine as we admired the Rhine’s gorgeous castles. We were thrilled when we actually got to explore Lahnstein’s Lahneck Castle and Cochem’s Reichsburg. It was wonderful rekindling our bond while making new memories.” - Khanh S., experienced traveler

Fairytales long forgotten

“I love being a part of AmaWaterways’

An active traveler’s dream

“This perfect Rhine River journey

allowed us to maintain our active lifestyle. Pedaling through Breisach’s vineyards and watching the sunlight peek into the Rheingau woods was unforgettable, but our favorite bike tour was through Strasbourg. We glimpsed giant stork’s nests, took amazing photos in the adorable Petite-France district and returned later to visit the ­beautiful cathedral. We also loved the freedom to take bicycles out on our own to explore more of Cologne and Amsterdam after our morning tours.” - Angelina M., active traveler

A journey through history

“The 1992 opening of the 106-mile-

long Main-Danube Canal created a 2,200-mile-long waterway linking 15 countries and creating the modern concept of river cruising. On this impressive waterway, you’ll visit historic towns like Bamberg with its Romanesque cathedral and the “island” constructed for its Old Town Hall. You’ll also discover Würzburg’s mighty Marienberg Fortress on the Main riverbanks.” - Rudi Schreiner, Co-Founder and President

Drink in the local flavor

“As an unabashed connoisseur of fine

beverages, I find this sailing captures the liquid essence of Germany perfectly. There’s Kölsch beer in Cologne, rich coffee lit aflame with brandy in Rüdesheim, and the incredible wines of the Moselle Valley. I must admit though, my favorite part of this itinerary is the new optional land package in Reims, France that takes you along the Routes des Champagnes where you can taste the local bubbly – and conclude your journey on a celebratory note!” - Liz B., wine lover

Wonderful excursion choices

“There’s no more spectacular scenery

than along the Moselle River and when you combine it with a Rhine sailing, you can choose from 25 unique included excursions in just seven nights. That means you can hike above Trier’s rooftops to Petrisberg Hill one day, taste Cochem’s famous mustard the next, tour a museum of antique mechanical instruments the following night in Rüdesheim, and much more.” - Gary Murphy, Co-owner

A storybook of memories

“What a lovely journey this is for a

mother and daughter! There are three daytime sailings to enjoy the castles of the Rhine Gorge and the b­ reathtaking vineyards of the Moselle, which gave Isabel and I quality time to connect while sampling the local wines. We also share a love of the outdoors and nature, so our stroll through beautiful Schwetzingen Gardens and hike through Germany’s Black Forest were special moments together.” - Kristin Karst, Co-Founder and Godmother of AmaKristina

Warm hearts even in winter

“The Christmas spirit was so alive

in Europe throughout our journey. My sister and I enjoyed the culture brought to each city, especially Strasbourg, with the impressive nativity scene inside its cathedral. Riquewihr offered the coziest atmosphere with some truly one-of-a-kind handicrafts. Best of all, as first-time river cruisers, we felt so embraced and welcomed by both the friendly crew and fellow guests.” Stephany H., California-native traveler

SAILING THE FOUR SEASONS OF THE RHINE

You may gaze at castles enveloped in autumn shades of crimson and gold. Be enveloped by verdant greenery and sparkling streams while hiking through Germany’s Black Forest in spring. And pedal amidst the flicker of summer sunshine as it beams between the leafy arches of the pergola in Strasbourg’s Parc de l’Orangerie. Sailing along the Rhine in one season simply isn’t enough. Return at a different time of year and you’re in for a whole new experience.

Plenty of French flavor to savor

“With a lifelong passion for food and

wine, I have many wonderful memories and special recipes tied to the Bordeaux region. Returning with my husband on board AmaDolce was unforgettable. While we loved sipping Grand Cru Classé wines at a Saint-Émilion château, it was the sights, sounds, aromas and tastes at Libourne’s covered market that set my chef ’s heart a flutter! One unexpected ­surprise was Bordeaux’s Cité du Vin wine museum – it truly brought to life the fascinating history of wine.” - Joanne Weir, Chef and TV Host

“This new itinerary offers more time in

the picturesque Normandy countryside among stunning gardens memorialized by the Impressionists. Paris is always a highlight of cruising the Seine, but what we enjoyed the most was the slower pace and the freedom to wander ashore. We sampled French cheese and wine, joined a small-group biking tour through Le Havre and admired lovely châteaux such as the palatial Champ de Bataille. Not to be missed was our unforgettable land package in Brittany – I was fascinated by the history of St. Malo and awed by Mont St. Michel.” - Wade K., AmaWaterways

A wonderful family journey

“Traveling with three generations can

be challenging, but this river cruise was our most pleasant experience to date. My octogenarian parents were delighted by the gentle walker tours enabling them to take their time exploring quaint Honfleur and Monet’s home and gardens – every bit as beautiful as the painter’s canvases. My 14-year-old son craved adventure and was mesmerized by the chalk cliffs of Les Andelys and the dungeons of Château Gaillard, the former stronghold of Richard the Lionheart.” - Amie O., multigenerational family traveler.

“This sailing offers a glimpse into

You can pedal with your guide through vineyards and medieval towns such as Berzé-le-Châtel, perched on a hill and surrounded by greenery. My favorite bike tour showcases Roman artifacts as well as the Langlois Bridge immortalized in paintings by Van Gogh – and is perhaps the best way to experience Arles.” - Jon B., world traveler

An idyllic escape

“This sailing was the perfect week-long

escape that reminded us to slow down and cherish every moment together. In the food capital of Lyon, we pedaled through the charming Rue des Marronniers, where we stopped to taste fresh macarons. In the Pays d’Or region, we sipped Beaujolais wine at a picturesque vineyard and later enjoyed the fresh air during our guided walking tour through Arles, spotting the yellow house and garden that inspired Van Gogh’s famous paintings.” - Alex P., AmaWaterways

Beautiful panoramas and people

“The Douro River itself is very,

very beautiful. We had a wonderful experience at Quinta de Avessada in Pinhão, where the charismatic wine estate owner had us in stitches during the included shoreside lunch served with wine. Perhaps the most memorable destination for me was Porto, the 'City of Bridges,' where we walked across the Ponte de Dom Luis for scenic views of the river and city beyond.” - David B., past guest

is Indochina Waterways, an entity organized under the laws of Vietnam. For the vessel in Namibia, the Carrier is Zambezi Queen Holidays PTY Ltd, an entity organized under the laws of Namibia. For a complete and up-to-date listing of the registry and Carrier for each vessel, visit www. AmaWaterways.com/CarrierInformation. Deposit and Final Payment: To confirm a river cruise or river cruise and land reservation, we require a deposit of $400 per person for Europe and Asia, $4,800 per person for Seven River Journey Through Europe itineraries, $1,200 per person for Egypt and $2,400 per person for Africa itineraries on or before the deposit due date indicated on the confirmation. Transoceanic airline flights reserved through AmaWaterways require an additional deposit of $350 per person for economy class or $600 per person for business/ first-class flights. Upon receipt of deposit, air schedule will be provided (subject to changes by carrier); deposited air will be ticketed within 75 - 90 days prior to travel start date once paid in full. Full payment is required for airline tickets to be issued prior to 90 days before the travel start date, at which time deposits will be non-refundable. Any air schedules and ticketing relating to AmaWaterways air promotions will be provided 75 - 90 days before the travel start date once full payment is received for the river cruise and promotional air price (if any). Included flights on Egypt pre- and post-extensions (Jordan and Israel) require an additional non-refundable deposit of $200 per person, per extension. Bangkok land package requires a non-refundable deposit of $200 per person. The Rwanda extension requires an additional non-refundable deposit of $1,500 per person for the Mountain Gorilla permit and $100 per person for the Golden Monkey permit.

The Concierge Golf Program requires an additional non- refundable deposit of $700 per person.

Cancellation Charges: In the unfortunate event a participant must cancel travel, notice must be made to AmaWaterways during standard business hours or via email to Res@amawaterways.com, which must include writing stating clearly and correctly each guest’s name, ship name, start and end date of the cruise and a brief statement of the reason for cancellation. Other forms of notice are not sufficient. Cancellations received within 24 hours of vacation start date will be deemed as trip interruption, cannot be cancelled and are 100% non-refundable. The effective date of the cancellation is the date AmaWaterways receives cancellation notice. A change in sailing date, name changes, the substitution of a participant or a reduction in the number of guests in a stateroom are treated as a cancellation in that all applicable cancellation charges apply. A reduction in occupancy is subject to a single supplement charge. Cancellation charges for bookings within charter and part-charter agreements are as per the charter contract. All other cancellation charges are per-person, based on the cancellation date, as seen in the chart below. You acknowledge that your cancellation will cause us and the Carrier difficulty in selling a replacement cruise or cruise & land reservation and thus the cancellation fees described below apply regardless of whether your cruise or cruise & land reservation is resold. You agree that any losses sustained by us and/or the Carrier in the event of cancellation would be very difficult or impossible to quantify, and the cancellation fees are fair and reasonable as liquidated damages. Pricing: All prices are in US dollars. In the event that a cruise fare listed, quoted or advertised through any website, printed collateral, reservations person, travel advisor or any other source is booked, but is incorrect due to an electronic error, typographical error, human error or any other error causing the fare to be listed, quoted or advertised for an amount not intended by AmaWaterways, AmaWaterways reserves the right to correct the erroneous fare by requesting the passenger to pay the correct fare intended, or by canceling the cruise. Airfares, air taxes and air surcharges quoted on your invoice or by a reservation agent are only guaranteed once airfare deposit or full payment is received by AmaWaterways. AmaWaterways reserves the right to increase prices without notice. Prices Do Not Include: Published prices do not include airfare, vessel fuel surcharges, passport and visa fees, baggage fees, port charges and fees, travel protection, vaccinations, laundry, additional food and beverages, optional excursions, gratuities or other items or services of a personal nature.


Passport and Visas: A valid passport is required for each participant. For travel to Europe, at time of publication US Passport holders do not require a visa to travel. Passports must be valid for at least six (6) months after the scheduled return date to your home country, unless stated otherwise. Non-US citizens must consult the appropriate consulates regarding visa and other document requirements. Obtaining required visas and any other required travel documentation and assuring these are complete and correct in all ways, is the sole responsibility of each participant. We are not in a position to obtain or verify the accuracy or completeness of any participant’s visa or other required documentation and shall not be responsible or liable for delay or missed portion of any part of the itinerary or other problems resulting from the participant lacking the appropriate travel documentation. For more information, please visit www.AmaWaterways.com Travel Documents: Only after receipt of full payment, final Digital Travel Documents (including airline confirmation information, if applicable) will be sent via email, approximately 3-4 weeks prior to departure. (Delay in final payment will delay delivery of Digital Travel Documents.) Requests for expedited Digital Travel Documents may be possible for an additional charge. FLIGHTS & AIRPORT TRANSFERS Flight Schedules & Airfares: AmaWaterways offers special airfares based on the flight and seat availability of contracted carriers. We are able to accept a traveler’s choice of preferred air carrier, flight schedule, and some deviations so long as the requests are made at the time of booking the airline reservation. To hold/confirm an airline reservation, the airlines require your full legal name as it appears on your passport. For contract airline fares, a non-refundable deposit of $350 per person for economy class or $600 per person for business/first-class tickets is required to issue ticket(s) within 24 hours for the flight schedule. Any quoted price is not guaranteed, as well as when changes are requested by the guest, such as name or date changes, or if an airline-imposed schedule change is not accepted prior to ticketing. Once your airline tickets have been issued, any changes will be subject to penalty, and any applicable fare differential, if not cancelled within 24 hours of ticketing. Any itineraries that include intra-air flights require a nonrefundable deposit (also applies to combination cruises). Should the name on your airline reservation not match your passport exactly, your airline reservation will have to be cancelled, full penalties will be assessed, and your reservation will have to be recreated subject to market pricing at the time of the new reservation. Any air schedules provided by AmaWaterways are subject to change without notice as imposed by the carrier due to reasons beyond our control. Airfares in conjunction with promotional offers are subject to specific terms as outlined with offer details. Air tickets are Economy class. Upgrading to Premium Economy, Business or First Class is possible for an additional charge pursuant to the terms and conditions of the relevant airline(s). AmaWaterways guarantees upgrades for longhaul flights, but not U.S. Domestic flights, intra-Europe, intra-Asia, intra-Egypt and intra-Africa flights. Upgrades may not be possible when an air carrier changes the schedule, aircraft type, experiences a strike, overbooking or flight interruption of any kind. Air carriers reserve the right to do all the above. In such cases, all claims for airfare adjustment must be requested directly to the air carrier. Air carriers require the passenger name to appear on the airline ticket exactly it appears on the passport. If it does not match exactly, AmaWaterways shall not be responsible or liable for the consequences which could include re-issue fees or denial of boarding. AmaWaterways shall not be responsible or liable for costs resulting from airline schedule changes, lost air ticket, delay, disruption or cancelled flight, lost or damaged baggage, missed connections, downgrades, denied boarding or voluntarily buying replacement tickets without the express consent of the air carrier. In any of these instances, claim must be made directly with the air carrier. Changes: Airline tickets issued by AmaWaterways have restrictions and cannot be re-issued, transferred, or exchanged. Any changes whatsoever made to an airline ticket will incur a minimum $350 per ticket change fee for Economy ($600 for Business), plus any additional increase in the cost of the airfare. A change or refund request for tickets purchased through AmaWaterways must be made through AmaWaterways, but may not be possible. Once a trip commences, only the date of the return flight ticket can be modified for $350 per ticket change fee for Economy ($600 per ticket for Business). Other changes may require purchase of a new ticket. The original return air ticket has no residual value.

Limitation on Special Requests and Frequent Flyer Numbers: AmaWaterways will try to relay requests for special meals, adding frequent flyer numbers or for seat assignments, etc. However, confirmation of any request rests solely with the airline and the passenger or travel advisor must always confirm directly with the airline. It is recommended that each passenger provide their frequent flyer number to the airline at the time of check-in. Please note that airline tickets issued by AmaWaterways have restrictions that may not allow credit in part or whole for frequent flyer miles. Checking with the air carrier is the responsibility of the passenger. Baggage: Checked and carry-on baggage are subject to restrictions that usually involve weight, size and/or number of pieces. Please check with the respective airline regarding baggage policies. There are strict luggage restrictions for our programs in Africa; please ask for details. We shall not be responsible or liable for costs or consequences for exceeding the airline’s baggage restrictions, or for loss, theft, damage or delay to passenger’s baggage. Airport Transfers: Guests purchasing transoceanic airfare through AmaWaterways may qualify for complimentary group airport transfers for a scheduled arrival between the airport and the ship or hotel, and on a scheduled departure between the hotel or the ship and airport. Airport transfers in Africa and Egypt to/from the hotel are included on the first and last days (when applicable) of your trip, unless deviating from advertised program. If airport transfers are not reflected on your confirmation, AmaWaterways will not be responsible for providing airport transfer service. Please note: our group airport transfer service may involve some waiting time. All guests making their own airfare arrangements are responsible for arranging their transportation to/from the airport (except Africa and Egypt). Individual airport transfers can be purchased for those guests who are scheduled to arrive/depart on our itinerary dates, please ask for details. Changes in Cruise and Cruise & Land Itineraries: Carrier seeks to provide services as published or stated in the Digital Travel Documents. But deviations to planned cruise, cruise & land itinerary or any other aspects of the travel may occur. If conditions make cruise routes unsafe for navigation or in other respects, or raise sufficient doubt about safety, Carrier reserves the right to modify or provide alternate services. These may include, but are not limited to, providing accommodation on the docked ship and/ or substituting ground arrangements. An effort will be made to try to arrange elements of the cruise and cruise tour similar to those originally planned, but the level of similarity may vary. Except as otherwise provided in your Passenger Ticket Contract, such changes will not entitle you to any credit or a refund. Cruise, cruise & land routes, and all other aspects of the cruise and travel are subject to change with or without notice. Hotel Accommodations: We will seek to use hotels listed (if any) on your confirmation. Changes may be necessary; therefore, use of such hotels is not assured. An effort will be made to substitute similar hotels, but the level of similarity may vary. Standard policy for hotels is to have rooms available for check-in no earlier than 3:00 p.m. Subject to the discretion of the hotel, triple-occupancy hotel accommodations may involve the use of hotel rooms with just two beds. Only those guests who have elected to take our Cruise & Land program on the brochure itinerary dates will receive transfers between the hotel(s) and the ship. Cancellation by Carrier: Carrier reserves the right to cancel, change or postpone any cruise departure date and itinerary. In the event of a complete cancellation of a departure by Carrier, we will refund monies paid for the cruise or cruise & land package to those participants who have not previously cancelled. See Passenger Ticket Contract for further details.

A reasonable effort will be made to accommodate special needs, but we are not responsible for denial of service by Carriers, hotels, or other independent Suppliers. A participant who, due to impairment, is not self-sufficient, may need to travel with a companion who shall take responsibility for assistance needed during travel and in case of emergency. An individual with a disability that would result in a direct threat to the health and safety of others or to that individual may be excluded, if it is determined there is a significant risk that cannot be eliminated or reduced to an acceptable level by reasonable accommodations, policies, practices, procedures assistive devices or services.

We shall have no liability to participant relating to any condition, treatment, failure to inform us of an impairment, or resulting exclusion. Due to medical safety guidelines, we are unable to accommodate passengers who will enter their 24th week of pregnancy by the time of the cruise. Medical: Medical doctors are not available on any vessel. If medical services are required, efforts to contact local medical providers will be made. A participant requiring such assistance is solely responsible for all related charges. We will not be responsible or liable for sufficiency of our efforts to reach medical providers, unavailability, delay, quality or other aspect of any such services. Participant is encouraged at time of booking and well before departure, to review participant’s health and medical conditions and insurance and consult participant’s health care and insurance providers regarding needs and scope of coverage for any incident or need that may occur during travel, and to obtain supplemental health and medical insurance for the travel, as needed.
