TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR THIS CRUISE

P&O Cruises UK Europe and World VoyagesTerms and Conditions

Introduction

These are the Terms & Conditions under which you book and travel on any P&O Cruises product we sell you. You are bound by these ‘Terms & Conditions’, so it is important that you read them carefully.

We/Our/Us means Carnival plc, trading as P&O Cruises and, where the context permits, includes the Carrier. In selling you cruises and issuing you tickets, Carnival plc acts as a sales agent for P&O Cruises.

You are entering into this contract with Carnival plc trading as P&O Cruises, ARBN 107 998 443.

Certain laws such as the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) and any applicable state based consumer legislation (from here known as ‘consumer laws’), are in place for your protection. They are designed to ensure the services provided by us (and, where applicable, the Carrier), are provided with due care and skill and are reasonably fit for a holiday. These Terms & Conditions do not alter any protection given to you by consumer laws.

Your agreement with us

When you first make a payment towards your cruise holiday, you accept P&O's Terms & Conditions on behalf of all passengers in the booking. Once we have received a payment, an agreement on these Terms & Conditions becomes effective between all passengers in the booking, Carnival plc and, where applicable, the Carrier.

Payments

Once you have decided on your holiday, we will need a deposit to secure your booking. It is essential that deposits are received by us within 3 days from when the booking is made. If payment is not received within this time, our system will automatically cancel your booking.

On some cruises, the deposit may be required on the day of booking or within 1-7 days of making the booking, as controlled by P&O Cruises.

Please note, all passengers within a booking must travel on the same fare type. It is essential that you make final payment by the due date and in accordance with the fare type you have purchased. If payment is not received, bookings will be automatically cancelled and our ‘Cancellation & Refunds’ policy will apply.

If you are making a booking within the ‘final payment due’ period of your selected cruise, full payment is required at the time of booking.

Last Minute Deals

Full payment is required at the time of booking.

Cabins are on a Guarantee Status therefore no cabin number will be assigned at the time of booking. A cabin number will only be allocated closer to departure by P&O Cruises. Please refer to “Guarantee (GTY) Bookings.

Fares are not combinable with any onboard credit promotion.
Fare is fully non refundable and non transferable.

Travel insurance

We strongly recommend you purchase appropriate international travel insurance at the time you pay your deposit. If you do not purchase travel insurance, you will not be able to claim for any cancellation charges, medical costs, repatriation and other expenses that may arise if things do not go according to plan.

Cancellation & Refunds

Although we would love to see you on board, we understand that plans can change. Should you need to cancel your holiday, we ask that you notify your Agent or our Customer Service Team at your earliest convenience. The refund or cancellation charge that will be payable depends on the amount of notice you give us and the fare type you have purchased, as follows:

Days prior to departure

Deposit*

89 – 64 days

25% *

63 – 43 days

50% *

42 – 15 days

<14 days

100%

* An additional Online Republic cancellation fee of $200.00 will apply.

Please note in instances where the deposit amount paid is higher than the 25%, 50% or 75% of the cruise fare, then the highest of the amounts is payable as the cancellation penalty.

Please note, promotional fares may have different cancellation and refund conditions. Please ensure you check these at time of booking and before making payment.

Should you incur cancellation charges, you may be able to claim these back from your travel insurance company depending on your circumstances and your level of cover. Please check with your insurer for full details. You should always ensure that you have adequate travel insurance when you have made your booking so that you are covered for such eventualities.

Changing your cruise holiday

Please note, if you choose to change your booking to a different cruise, or to a different sector of a World Voyage, it will be considered as a cancellation of your original booking. In this instance, our cancellation charges, as per our Cancellation & Refunds policy, will apply.

Your fare

Your fare is determined by the fare type, the number of passengers in your stateroom, its location on the ship, the amenities offered, port charges, government taxes, any airfares including taxes and fees, any transfers and any hotel accommodation. Child fares, where applicable, only apply when children occupy the 3rd or 4th bed in a stateroom.

Fare changes

Once booked, your fare is only subject to any increased taxes, which will be added to the fare or to your on board account. Sometimes we will release promotional fares. These can be offered and withdrawn at any time.

If you decide to change to one of these promotional fares, you will need to cancel your existing booking and our 'Cancellation & Refunds' policy will apply.

Stateroom changes

We reserve the right to change the stateroom allocated to you at any time at our discretion. In addition, when a booking is made as a ‘Guarantee’ it will be berthed at our discretion and allocated a stateroom in the grade booked or higher at a later date.

Please refer to 'Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings – see above.

Fuel supplement

We may elect to impose a fuel supplement at any time, which will apply to new bookings only. The total price quoted to you at the time of booking will be inclusive of any applicable fuel supplement.

Booking changes & ticket requests

Once you have made your booking, please check your invoice, ‘Cruise Personaliser’, or with your Travel Agent to ensure the details are correct. Should you need to make changes to your booking or request tickets, the following administration charges will apply:
 

Changes/Request

Charge

Spelling correction (per person)

$0

Replacement passenger* (per person)

$25

Re-issue of ticket(per request)

$25

* One original passenger from the booking must always remain in the stateroom. If the cancelling passenger was the only person that qualified the booking for a promotional fare (e.g.: past passenger fare), additional and remaining passengers will no longer be entitled to this promotional fare. The booking will revert to a different fare and the remaining passengers will need to pay the difference in cost, if any.

Once you have paid a deposit against your cruise, any other changes made to the booking will incur an amendment fee of $50 plus any applicable fees set you by the cruise line.

Pregnancy

Passengers who will be pregnant during their cruise are required to supply a physicians ‘fit to travel’ note, including your estimated due date, prior to embarkation. We are unable to accept any passengers who will have entered their 24th week or later of pregnancy, by the end of the cruise.

Minimum age to travel

To ensure suitable supervision there needs to be at least one passenger 18 years or older in each stateroom. Passengers under the age of 18 years must travel with a parent or guardian over the age of 21 years. We welcome children 12 months and over to cruise with us, except on Arcadia and Artemis, which are dedicated to adults over 18 years of age. We are unable to accommodate infants less than 12 months due to limited neo-natal facilities on board. Please note, infants aged 6 months and over are permitted to travel on selected cruises, please enquire at the time of booking.

Children

Parents/guardians are responsible for children at all times. Children under the age of 16 years must not be left unaccompanied on the ship whilst visiting a port of call. Infants aged between 6 months and 2 years must remain with their parent/guardian at all times. If a child displays dangerous or disruptive behaviour, the ‘Rights of the Captain’ will be applied to both parent/guardian and child.

Requirements to travel

Passports, visas and vaccinations are your responsibility. Without the necessary passport, visas and/or vaccinations local authorities may deny you boarding, prevent you from going ashore, issue a fine or deny the ship entry into the port. Passports are required and must be valid for a minimum of 6 months beyond the date of the cruise return. In addition, travel on our cruises will not revalidate an Australian re-entry visa.

Alcohol & gambling

We are committed to the responsible service of alcohol. There may be times when we consider it appropriate to refuse the service of alcohol to a passenger for any reason. Any alcohol purchased ashore may be collected at the gangway for safe keeping and will be returned to you on the last day of your cruise. Passengers must be 18 years of age or older to purchase and drink alcohol or gamble on board P&O Cruises ships at all times. Passengers aged 16 and 17 years may be bought beer, cider or wine to drink with a meal in the restaurants when accompanied by an adult. Government issued photo identification may be requested.

Your health

We care about the health and safety of our passengers. To assist, please advise us at the time of booking if you have any condition that requires medical attention, medication or special treatment. We may also ask you to complete a health questionnaire.

If a passenger has a condition that we decide may seriously affect the enjoyment, health or safety of themselves or any other person on board, we can refuse or cancel a booking, where necessary. We will give reasonable consideration when reaching this decision and will advise you as soon as possible. Provided you have given us all relevant information about the condition at the time of booking, you will be entitled to a full refund if we cancel your booking on the basis of this condition.

On board Medical Centre

Each ship has a Medical Centre that is staffed by registered doctors and nurses, who are available during scheduled times to provide medical care for everyone on board. They are also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for medical emergencies. Our Medical Centre is only for medical needs arising on board and cannot cater for treatments that you know you will require while on holiday. We are not a healthcare provider and may not be held liable for the sickness, injury or death of any passenger arising from any advice, treatment, care, services or any omission by medical staff. These medical providers exercise their own medical judgement and expertise.

On board medical charges

All cruises on our ships are outside the scope of Australian Medicare, New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) and private health insurance. Consultations, treatments and medications are charged at private rates in Pounds Sterling and must be paid by you and claimed through your travel insurance.

Ship & Itinerary changes

We will do everything we reasonably can to make sure everything goes according to plan; however, sometimes changes can happen that may affect your holiday experience. This could include weather, mechanical difficulties, civil unrest or any other unforeseen circumstances.

In addition, we may charter all or part of the ship or remove the ship from service where this becomes necessary. We may change the itinerary, ship or cancel the cruise due to operational or commercial requirements.

We will notify you of these changes as soon as we can. Where we cancel a cruise or make a significant change to the ports in your itinerary prior to departure, you will have the choice of:
The new itinerary;
An alternative cruise of comparable standard, if available; or
Cancelling the cruise for a full refund of your fare paid.

If we are required to change the itinerary or cancel the cruise due to safety, maritime law, severe weather or to protect human life or health, we are not required to provide any compensation. With this in mind, please do not make any important arrangements or meetings based on the proposed itinerary.

Rights of the Captain

If a passenger seriously affects the safety, well-being or enjoyment of themselves or any other person on board, the Captain has the right to confine, sedate or disembark the passenger. In such cases, we are not responsible for any expenses including your return home. In addition, you will not be entitled to any refunds. While the Captain will always act reasonably in these circumstances, you accept that the safety, well-being and enjoyment of everyone on board comes first.

Leaving the cruise early

If you are required or choose to leave the cruise for any reason, we are not responsible for any expenses, including your return home. This also applies if you do not return to the ship after a port visit in time for sailing. If we assist you with any costs, you will need to repay us on your return. In addition, you will not be entitled to any refunds.

Legal matters

In the unlikely event you have reason to take legal action, you agree to use all reasonable efforts to bring the issue to our attention as soon as possible.

Where permitted by consumer laws and other laws, we shall not be liable for:
Loss of, or damage to, any luggage or other belongings
Sickness, injury or death, unless caused by our proven negligence.

In addition, our liability will be reduced in proportion to any negligence or fault on your part.

This contract is governed by the laws of New South Wales. You agree that any action you bring against us will be heard in New South Wales, unless consumer laws allow you to bring an action elsewhere in Australia.

You agree only to bring action against Carnival plc and not P&O Cruises or any of Carnival plc’s other related bodies corporate as defined in the Corporations Act 2001(Cth), or any other person involved or connected with the ship. You agree that Carnival plc holds the benefit of this promise for itself and also on behalf of the other parties it is intended to protect. If you do take action against any of those parties you will be required to compensate for the full amount of the actual damage or loss sustained, and any costs and expenses incurred by Carnival plc and the other person or persons against whom you claim.

We collect this information so you receive the highest level of personalised service. After your holiday, your information is stored so we can inform you of any special offers or obtain feedback.
