SUPPLEMENTARY CRUISE BOOKING CONDITIONS
Important Notice: The following Terms and Conditions apply to all bookings made outside North America on Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, or Silversea Cruises.
1. Health Acknowledgement
Exposure to pathogens (such as the virus that causes COVID-19) is an inherent risk in places where people gather and may result in severe illness or death. Exposure may occur at any point during your voyage, onboard or ashore. Always remaining onboard during your voyage will not prevent exposure because
pathogens may be brought onboard by others, including passengers who choose to participate in shore excursions or activities ashore in our various ports of calls or private destinations. Our health and safety measures mitigate the risk of exposure but cannot eliminate it entirely. Before booking or sailing on a cruise, all guests should consider their individual risk level for illness resulting from pathogen exposure and make an informed travel decision on that basis. We recommend guests with a higher risk of severe illness consult with their doctor prior to booking or sailing with us.
By booking a cruise with us, on behalf of yourself and/or others for whom you are acting (collectively “you” or “your”), you acknowledge that you understand the risks related to exposure to pathogens and their resulting illnesses while cruising with us, including those relating to guests who are at a higher risk of severe illness. It is a condition of boarding and remaining on-board any of our ships that all guests throughout their stay comply with our Guest Health Safety and Conduct Policy and all health and
safety policies and procedures as notified by us. Please also be aware of the terms of our Refusal to Transport Policy which is available on our website.
