Dear Valued Traveler, In 2017, we celebrated our 15th anniversary. Throughout these past 15 years, we’ve had an unprecedented commitment to innovation and an unwavering dedication to the delivering the highest standards of excellence in river cruising. In 2019, AmaWaterways will continue to transform river cruising with three new state-of-the-art ships. The AmaMagna will be our biggest ship ever at almost twice the width of traditional European river cruise ships, yet she will carry only 196 guests. The design of the ship affords guests luxurious living spaces; multiple dining options, including an al fresco glassenclosed restaurant and The Chef’s Table; more onboard activities and enhanced evening entertainment. The AmaMora, sister ship to the AmaLea (2018) and AmaKristina (2017), will carry just 156 guests, providing them with generous personal space, the freedom of multiple dining choices and exceptional stateroom comfort. The AmaDouro will be our second ship in Portugal due to the continued popularity of this destination. She will carry 102 guests. We will expand our selection of included excursions with more choices and we will enhance our Wellness Program, ensuring guests can continue their wellness-oriented lifestyle. In addition to our extensive guided biking and hiking tours, our Wellness Program includes a variety of enticing exercise classes led by a professionally trained Wellness Host. We will also have 60 wine-themed cruises to provide a more in-depth epicurean dimension to our already enticing itineraries—at no additional cost. We are always whole-heartedly dedicated to the happiness of our guests. Whichever destination you choose, you’re sure to fall in love with our river cruises. On behalf of the entire AmaWaterways family, we look forward to welcoming you on board soon. Sincerely,

Rudi Schreiner President

OUR STORY Family-owned and operated, AmaWaterways was founded in 2002; however, our river cruise story began well before that. President Rudi Schreiner was born in Vienna, at the heart of the Danube. His love of design drew him to architecture, but his even greater love of travel drew him to places far and wide. Combining both of his passions, along with the completion of the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal in 1992, Rudi became a driving force for river cruise travel—and for these efforts has been recognized as the “Most Innovative Cruise Executive” and was presented with the prestigious “Lifetime Achievement Award” by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA). Executive Vice President, Kristin Karst brings extensive experience in luxury travel, river cruising and customer service to AmaWaterways. Rudi and Kristin partnered with Jimmy Murphy, a brilliant travel entrepreneur who built Brendan Vacations. His son Gary now carries on his father’s tradition in his role as Vice President of Sales. From the beginning, our goal was to create a river cruise company that we ourselves would enjoy. To us that meant excellent food and wine, comfortable and tasteful décor, lots of space to relax in, staterooms with maximum views to enjoy the ever-changing countryside and an abundance of excursions to really immerse ourselves in the cultures of the countries we would visit. But most important to us was creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere that can only happen when you have people who love their jobs and are passionate about service and sharing their culture and knowledge with our guests. Our commitment to this unifying goal is what makes an AmaWaterways river cruise stand out from the rest.

From the moment you step aboard your ship and are greeted by a friendly crew member with a flute of bubbly to the moment you bid farewell, your genuinely warm and welcoming staff will go above and beyond to ensure your journey is extra special and as memorable as possible. It might be a waiter who knows exactly how you like your omelet prepared in the morning or it could be your Cruise Manager who knows it’s your birthday and surprises you with a special cake made by our talented pastry chef. Wherever you decide to indulge your wanderlust, you can always be assured you are traveling on the most innovative and highest-rated river cruise ships as evaluated by the premier travel authority, Berlitz. “AmaWaterways spends considerably more on high-quality food ingredients and wine and hotel crew service training than any other river cruise company.” – DOUGLAS WARD Berlitz River Cruising in Europe

VISITING A LOCAL FRENCH MARKET

EXPLORE THE WORLD YOUR WAY Imagine yourself as part of a Monet masterpiece as you step into his lovely gardens at Giverny. How about returning to a land of kings and queens, knights and ladies, and fables and legends in the ancient medieval city of Veliko Tarnovo and its Tsarevets Fortress? Or take a page from the daring explorers who set sail from magnificent Lisbon during the “Age of Discovery” and be inspired to uncover new adventures in the very city that inspired it all. On an AmaWaterways river cruise, you don’t just pass through a destination—you experience it with all of your senses. Follow the routes of emperors and other legendary figures on creative and adventurous itineraries along timeless rivers, through inspiring countryside, historic capitals, fairytale towns and even out-of-the-way hotspots that locals favor. Carefully curated excursions showcase the rich diversity of each place you visit and all are hosted by the most experienced and knowledgeable English-speaking local guides and Cruise Managers who have a genuine passion for world history and a real knack for bringing the past to life.

AN ARRAY OF EXCURSIONS & CHOICES We realize our guests have different tastes, so we’ve developed a menu of complimentary shore excursions in every port of call and often with several choices. There’s always a city tour designed to showcase the renowned highlights and landmarks in grand capitals and charming villages. Yet, you can uncover hidden treasures as well or explore an area more actively. Have you already been to Nuremberg and Vienna? Then consider joining one of the exclusive Special Interest Tours, carefully crafted to give small groups the chance to be even more immersed into the local life. Indulge in a Belgian chocolate making demonstration and tasting in Antwerp; savor Sachertorte and Sekt in Vienna; and learn how to hunt for truffles in Provence. Wish to be more active? You can hike and bike through timeless landscapes and along the banks of the river.

SMALL GROUPS, MORE INTIMATE ENCOUNTERS At AmaWaterways, we always make it a point to place our guests in small groups. By doing this, you can connect with your guide and your surroundings in a more intimate setting with front-row views. These small group tours come in all shapes and sizes, speeds and thrills.

SET YOUR OWN PACE If you desire a more relaxed pace, you can join a more leisurely paced group, giving you more time to linger in your favorite spots. For those who would like to sleep longer in the morning, join the “Late Starter” group—because after all, it is your vacation.

LIVING WELL ON THE RIVER Cycling through the French and Austrian countryside or hiking up to fortified castles for the stunning views in magnificent cities like Budapest and Vienna offers you a chance to experience a destination from a different perspective as well as gives your usual fitness routines an extra boost.

For those whose passion is going for neighborhood runs or brisk walks, find new scenery to explore along Europe’s storied rivers. Or prefer a more zen approach to wellness, yoga on the sun deck with transcending scenery and refreshing breezes provides the perfect way to start the day.

FITNESS FOR THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL As the first river cruise line to carry a fleet of complimentary bicycles, AmaWaterways has long embraced the exciting trend of active travel. Guided biking and hiking excursions; a variety of exercise classes, including yoga, core strengthening and circuit training; and discussion groups with a focus on healthy eating and relaxation techniques provide fitness for the mind, body and soul. Your professionally trained Wellness Host will ensure you have everything you need for your optimal wellbeing throughout your journey. You can also take advantage of the complimentary fitness room and the sun deck walking track, as well as the pool for a refreshing dip while sailing past historic monuments; or indulge with a rejuvenating massage after a full day of active exploration. And since cuisine is such a major part of the traveling, AmaWaterways incorporates healthy eating, using locally-sourced ingredients into our culinary offerings. Gluten-free, low-sodium and vegetarian options are available, along with a Hydration Station with infused detox and gemstone water. Note: Amenities and services may vary by region and ship.

AUTHENTIC ENCOUNTERS Authentic encounters add to the rich tapestry of local culture, always making for memorable experiences. Walk alongside artisan and vintners through the same fields their ancestors toiled and learn the timeless traditions. w w w. a m a w a t e r w a y s . c o m |

EXPLORE EUROPE BY RIVER The legendary rivers of Europe have long been celebrated in both prose and song. Serving as major highways during the rise and fall of ancient civilizations, these waterways have continued their crucial roles as sources of sustenance, avenues of transportation and facilitators of commerce. Throughout history, major cities, smaller villages and stalwart fortifications have been built along their banks. Today, travelers who sail on these magnificent rivers will encounter grand capitals like Vienna, ­Budapest and Paris, charming hamlets and towns, enchanting castles and other wondrous scenes from centuries ago. You rarely have to wander far from the river bank to discover a wealth of European art, culture, history and architecture.

THE DOURO The major river of the Iberian Peninsula flows from its source in Spain to its outlet in Northern Portugal. It is here that river cruisers will discover the UNESCO-designated Douro River Valley, the world’s oldest demarcated wine region known for its Port wine.

DUTCH AND BELGIAN WATERWAYS A series of connecting rivers, including the Amstel, from which Amsterdam took its name, connect the Netherlands and Belgium. A journey along these waterways in the spring offers many opportunities to watch nature blossom in breathtaking fashion in this picturesque part of the world. 31 |

THE GARONNE, DORDOGNE AND GIRONDE ESTUARY In the corner of southwestern France, the Garonne and Dordogne rivers merge together to form the Gironde Estuary, which naturally divides the Bordeaux region into left and right banks. Travelers from around the world flock to this region, which is well known for its wine and many gastronomic delights.

THE SEINE AND RHÔNE The Seine rises in northeastern France near Dijon, flows through Paris, and continues westward through Normandy to the English Channel. The Rhône flows from its source in the Swiss Alps and travels south to the Mediterranean, linking thousands of vineyards and wineries in southeastern France.

THE DANUBE Captured in literature, art and Strauss’s famous “Blue Danube” waltz, this river is one of the world’s most romantic waterways. Extending for thousands of miles through Central Europe, the Danube flows eastward, passing four capital cities before emptying into the Black Sea.

THE RHINE, MAIN AND MOSELLE The Rhine originates in the Swiss Alps and flows into Germany, where it joins its major tributaries, the Moselle and the Main. Along these rivers are captivating sights that include grand cities, picturesque towns, iconic castles, stunning vineyards and verdant valleys. w w w. a m a w a t e r w a y s . c o m |

THE EXOTICS Indulge your cultural curiosity with a bucket-list journey to Southeast Asia or Africa. No matter which destination you choose, we are certain your experience will be forever etched in your memories and will leave an undeniable imprint on your heart.

VIETNAM, CAMBODIA & THE MEKONG RIVER Visit two incredibly diverse countries, Vietnam and Cambodia, linked by one river, the Mekong. In terms of its historical, cultural and ecological riches, the Mekong, “the Mother of Water,” has no equal. The sagas of ancient empires, colonial powers and modern conflicts have unfolded along the Mekong for centuries. Even today, it’s impossible to overstate the river’s importance for the many millions of Vietnamese and Cambodians who live along its vast length. Here, you’ll get a glimpse into another era; one where people still happily honor the timeless traditions passed down through the centuries from their ancestors. Vietnam with its incredible beauty is one of the most intriguing and dynamic countries in all of Southeast Asia, with landscapes as varied as its history. While visiting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, you’ll experience the ongoing duality of east and west, old and new, progress and tradition, co-existing in the most harmonious ways. Cambodia lures with its lush landscapes, temples once lost under tangled jungle vines, its colorful cities and people who have a delightful and well-earned reputation for being genuinely welcoming, friendly and gentle. From Phnom Penh, with its wealth of jewels, to its graceful and sophisticated traditional dance, Apsara, you’ll be inspired at every turn.

ANGKOR WAT, CAMBODIA

UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE TREASURES Vietnam and Cambodia are home to spelling-binding UNESCO World Heritage treasures. Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay is considered by many to be the Eighth Natural Wonder of the World, and AmaWaterways’ guests spend the night aboard an elegantly appointed ship cruising through its emerald green waters. Cambodia’s manmade wonder, Angkor Archaeological Park, a vast temple complex once lost under tangled jungle vines, is one of the world’s greatest architectural achievements. Wandering amongst its ancient ruins, you will see exquisite statues and bas-relief carvings, leaving you forever entranced. 81 |


THE TIMELESS TRADITIONS OF VIETNAM & CAMBODIA AmaWaterways brings you the unique opportunity to see not only the landmark sights of Southeast Asia, but to thoroughly entice all your senses. Hop on an authentic rickshaw while in Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi, and journey through its Old Quarter; and while in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s colorful capital, take a tuk tuk ride through its wide boulevards. Immerse yourself even further into the local culture and heritage of Vietnam and Cambodia as you are transported back in time to another era—one where you’ll experience the beauty of traditional life along the Mekong. Immersive experiences in rural villages offer you a chance to delve deeply into this life and to witness the time-honored methods of skilled artisans who create exquisite handicrafts and delicacies. These are the enriching moments of travel that let you explore more about the cultures and traditions of exotic lands. A journey through the heartland of Vietnam and Cambodia is truly a trip of a lifetime, and you are sure to return with photos and stories to share with friends and family for years to come.

AUTHENTIC & IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES

SKILLED ARTISANS Watch firsthand how highly skilled artisans use ancient traditions to make popular items, ranging from mats and slippers to jewelry and silk.

LOCAL WORKSHOPS Visit with local artisans who make everything from rice paper and rice wine to traditional rice candy. You’ll even get to try your hand making paper.

LOCAL MARKETS Discover exotic fruits and regional delicacies at vibrant, kaleidoscopic street markets. Meet friendly locals who always seem to have wide sunny smiles on their faces.

OXCART RIDE Take an age-old mode of transportation for a ride through a rural Cambodian village. It’s an experience designed for travelers with a spirit of adventure.

BUDDHIST BLESSING In Cambodia, you will have an exclusive opportunity to receive a special Buddhist blessing in a remote monastery.

FLOATING VILLAGE Balanced on wooden stilts above the river, these vibrant and colorful floating villages are a unique sight not to be missed. w w w. a m a w a t e r w a y s . c o m |

AFRICA & THE CHOBE RIVER Stare wide-eyed as Africa’s largest population of elephants freely swim and splash about. Feel humbled as you spot the graceful giraffe bow his elongated neck to quench his thirst at a watering hole. Listen to the grunt of the rhino resting nearby, or the song of the lilac-breasted roller along with scores of buffaloes, lions, crocodiles, hippos, monkeys, baboons and over 450 bird species. You may even catch a glimpse of the elusive cheetah, the world’s fastest land animal. It’s also one of the only areas one can find puku antelopes. This is the Chobe River, undeniably one of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, supporting a diversity and concentration of wildlife unparalleled anywhere else on the continent. The life-giving Chobe River runs through the northern part of Botswana’s Chobe National Park. Lending its name to the park itself, the Chobe River is part of the larger Cuando River, which flows through the gamerich “Four Corners” region where Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe meet. From there, the Chobe eventually flows into the Zambezi River and then tumbles over the precipice at Victoria Falls.

BOTSWANA IS HOME TO THE WORLD’S LARGEST ZEBRA MIGRATION

HIPPOS CAN’T SWIM

LIONS CAN GO FOUR OR FIVE DAYS WITHOUT WATER

LIFE ALONG THE CHOBE You’ll be treated to up-close encounters with the animals in their natural habitat while on your four-night Zambezi Queen wildlife and safari cruise. Each method of safari provides an extraordinarily distinctive perspective for wildlife viewing. Double decker barges let you venture into the smaller channels of the park, offering an unusual viewpoint to observe hippos and elephants. Driving through the park in open-top vehicles allows the safari to search a wider span and more easily follow game in motion. You’ll also go on an unforgettable visit to a typical African village to experience the local culture first hand. Spend time with the children of the village as well as its elders, and learn about their day-to-day life. Experience the amazing world of Chobe National Park, known as the “Land of the Giants.” 83 |


AMAZING AFRICA Iconic wildlife, awe-inspiring natural beauty, cosmopolitan cities and time-honored traditions—nothing can quite prepare you for a “bucket list” experience to Africa. With five carefully curated itineraries, you choose how you wish to explore Africa. Each itinerary features a four-night Chobe River cruise and two nights in Victoria Falls. Experience the “Rainbow Nation,” South Africa’s rich diversity from Cape Town, with her abundance of treasures, to Johannesburg, undergoing a major urban revival, to Greater Kruger National Park, home to the “Big Five.” Travel to Tanzania, East Africa, known as the land of safaris, as it’s home to four of the continent’s most renowned parks. Tarangire boasts a variety of wildlife as diverse as its landscape. Lake Manyara National Park is home to the famous tree-climbing lions. Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact caldera; and the Serengeti spans 12,000 square miles and teems with the most magnificent wildlife. Or take a 1,000-mile journey aboard the Rovos Rail luxury train. No matter which itinerary you choose, a thrilling adventure awaits.

UP CLOSE ENCOUNTERS & IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES

CAPE TOWN Get up close to a sanctuary of penguins at Boulders Beach. Visit the oldest wine industry outside of Europe, or go to Robben Island, once a prison to Nelson Mandela.

JOHANNESBURG Enjoy outdoor markets, art galleries and the Mandela House on Soweto’s Vilakazi Street, the world’s only street home to two Nobel Peace Prize winners, Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu.

VICTORIA FALLS Stand in awe at one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of the World,” the UNESCO-designated Victoria Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the world.

GREATER KRUGER NATIONAL PARK With over 270 animal species, including the “Big Five,” 517 types of birds, 90 varieties of fish and amphibians, and 2,000 kinds of plants, there’s much to see and experience.

ROVOS RAIL Experience the timeless grace of African exploration and of steam locomotives rolling through the countryside from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe to Pretoria, South Africa.

SERENGETI, TANZANIA Every year, the Serengeti witnesses the world’s largest mammal migration, when over one million wildebeest, migrate in a clockwise fashion to travel over 1,800 miles. w w w. a m a w a t e r w a y s . c o m |

DETAILS OF YOUR CHOBE CRUISE & VICTORIA FALLS STAY

MONDAY, ZAMBEZI QUEEN – EMBARKATION. Arrive in Kasane, Botswana from either Cape Town or Johannesburg, South Africa. Here, you’ll be transferred to the Chobe River where tender boats take you to the Zambezi Queen moored on the Namibia side of the river. Settle into your stateroom, and in the evening, be treated to a Welcome Cocktail Reception and Dinner. (D) TUESDAY, ZAMBEZI QUEEN. Embark on an exhilarating, morning boat safari to explore the Chobe River’s diverse game viewing. Afterwards, return to the Zambezi Queen for lunch. During the afternoon, you’ll meet an environmentalist, who’ll share his insight on Chobe National Park and its animals. Later in the day, enjoy another thrilling boat safari. (B,L,D) WEDNESDAY, ZAMBEZI QUEEN. Join a full-day safari of Chobe National Park in open-top 4x4 vehicles. Be on the lookout for elephants, giraffe, zebra, sable, warthog and cape buffaloes. Prides of lions, hyenas and (more rarely) cheetahs could be encountered along the way. For lunch, take a seat under the trees and savor a delicious picnic. (B,L,D) THURSDAY, ZAMBEZI QUEEN. Start the day off with an unforgettable visit to a typical African village to experience the local culture first hand. Spend time with the children of the village as well as its elders, and learn about their day-to-day life. After lunch on board, you can choose between a boat safari, bird watching or fishing. Spend your last evening aboard with a festive African-themed dinner hosted by your crew—complete with singing and dancing. (B,L,D) FRIDAY, ZAMBEZI QUEEN – DISEMBARKATION – VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE. During the early morning, enjoy a slightly different version of a river safari aboard a unique double-decker barge, which allows you to venture into the smaller channels on the Botswana side of Chobe National Park. This excursion offers you an unusual viewpoint to observe hippos and elephants in their natural habitat. Later in the morning, transfer to legendary Victoria Falls, one of the world’s greatest natural wonders. Spend the afternoon exploring the town or experience one of the many activities offered at your hotel. During the evening, join a cocktail reception aboard a vintage steam train, followed by a special dinner. (B,D) SATURDAY, VICTORIA FALLS. A local guide will take you on a tour of the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. You’ll learn about its history, and the flora and fauna that make this area so unique. In the evening, embark on a private sunset cruise along the Zambezi River. Relax on board as you observe a variety of game while enjoying a delicious mix of tapas with drinks. (B)

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. 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. Passport and Visas: A valid passport is required for each participant. Passports must be valid for at least six (6) months after the scheduled return date to your home country. For travel to Asia, we require a copy of your valid passport prior to or at final payment. If not received at this time, embarkation may be denied and cancellation penalties will

apply. Guests on the Vietnam/Cambodia Cruise & Land program must obtain a Multiple Entry Visa for Vietnam, as they will have two different points of entry into Vietnam, and a Single Entry Visa for Cambodia. Guests on the cruise only Vietnam/ Cambodia itinerary will require a single entry visa for Vietnam and Cambodia. For travel to Africa, a valid passport with 8 open/non-stamped pages is required. At publication time, a visa is required for a US citizen to travel to Vietnam, Cambodia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe (as well as numerous other countries). 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.

and the Strasbourg Convention on the Limitation of Liability of Owners of Inland Navigation Vessels, 1988. Venue for litigation of any disputes under the Passenger Ticket Contract is exclusively in the courts of Basel, Switzerland. GENERAL PROVISIONS Cruise and Cruise & Land Itineraries: Carrier seeks to provide services as published or stated in the final 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: 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. Disclaimer of Responsibility: AMA’s arrangements are with AWL, and they arrange with others for services described in this confirmation and in our brochures. Transport on river cruise ships (“ships”) or other forms of transport (“transport”) is provided by third party owners, operators and charterers (“supplier(s)”). Suppliers are separate entities and are deemed not to be our principals, agents, employees or partners. We do not own or operate any ship or transport service. Accordingly, WE DISCLAIM RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR, AND PARTICIPANT WAIVES, RELEASES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THERE SHALL NOT BE ANY CLAIM OR RECOURSE AGAINST US FOR OR AS A CONSEQUENCE OF: BREACH OF DUTY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENT OR WILLFUL OR INTENTIONAL ACT, FAILURE TO ACT OR OMISSION BY ANY SUPPLIER. Supplier and participant obligations and liabilities are subject in each case to terms and conditions of each supplier’s contract of carriage or other supplier terms and conditions, and any and all applicable government laws and regulations and international conventions that apply, including, but not limited to choice of law, jurisdiction of disputes and limitations of liability and limitations on timing of claims. PARTICIPANT AGREES THAT WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS (INCLUDING PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, AND LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY) OR EXPENSE OCCASIONED BY ANY ACT OR OMISSION OF ANY SUPPLIER PROVIDING SERVICES, OR ANY PROVIDER OF A TRAVEL PROTECTION PLAN, OR INSURER, OR OF ANY OTHER PERSON. If the services of a supplier cannot be delivered or there are changes in any planned service for any reason beyond our control, we will make an effort to arrange similar services. Any resulting additional expenses will be participant’s responsibility.
