THE FINE PRINT ABOUT YOUR PAYMENT CONTRACT
The payment plan is a contract between you and Native American Heritage Association / RLC. Payments are due the 1st day of each month. Be aware that if you book and pay your deposit towards the end of the month, your first payment will be due on the first of the next month, which may only be a few days (or even one day) later.
If you select the autopay plan, payments will be processed using the credit (or debit) card provided during your initial registration. Payments are processed on the first business day of each month.
You may change your autopay option or the credit card being used by contacting NAHA at 1-888-666-1499 during regular business hours (Tuesday – Friday, 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, Eastern Time).
All payments must be processed by credit or debit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or by bank account transfer. Personal checks are not accepted.
PENALTIES FOR LATE AND/OR NONPAYMENT
Payments not made within 30 days of the due date will be assessed a $50.00 late fee. Late fees must be paid along with the month for which they were assessed.
Accounts that become 90 days past due will automatically be cancelled and will not receive a refund of any amount at any time.
Payment Terms supersede those made by the RCI Passenger Contract. Please note the payment provisions of these Terms and Conditions apply to the Cruise, regardless of any representations made by RCI or its affiliated entities, whether in the RCI Passenger Contract terms or elsewhere. All rights granted to passengers in the RCI Passenger Contract, relating to the payment or refund of cruise fare and to cancellations by passengers are not operative.
Downgrading of cabins will be allowed if there are any lesser cabins available, however if the total price of the downgraded cabin is less than the amount already paid, no refund will be given.
GOVERNMENT TAXES, PORT FEES AND DAILY GRATUITIES
For Standard Cabins (Junior Suites and below) an additional $254 per person will be added to your cruise fare at the time of booking to cover taxes, port fees ($200) AND your daily onboard gratuities ($13.50 per person per day/$54 total for cruise).
For Suites (Grand Suites and above) an additional $266 per person will be added to your cruise fare at the time of booking to cover taxes, port fees ($200) AND your daily onboard gratuities ($16.50 per person per day/$66 total for cruise).
Daily onboard gratuities apply to guests of all ages and stateroom categories. They are shared between your onboard service team which includes dining services, your stateroom attendant and other hotel services. If a crew member provides exceptional services, please feel free to reward them with an additional gratuity/tip.
Gratuities and tips for casino dealers, bartenders and spa personnel are not included in the daily gratuities since all guests will not use their services. An 18% gratuity is automatically added to beverage purchases, minibar items, and spa and salon services. These gratuities will be noted on your receipt.
STATEROOM NUMBER ASSIGNMENTS
Passengers will have the opportunity to choose their cabin, based on availability, at the time of booking.
ONLINE REGISTRATION WITH ROYAL CARIBBEAN
Once we submit the manifest to Royal Caribbean (approximately 4-6 weeks prior to sailing), they will assign each passenger a reservation number. As soon as Rock Legends Cruise receives the reservation numbers, an email will be sent out to all email addresses on file containing the reservation number for your cabin. All passengers in your cabin will be under the same reservation number (with the exception of cabins with five or more people, which will be assigned two registration numbers). Each passenger will need to go to Royal Caribbean’s website at http://www.royalcaribbean.com and complete their Online Check-in process. Here you will be able to register, print your e-documents and SetSail passes, book shore excursions, schedule spa appointments, purchase water and soda packages, make specialty dining reservations, etc. Each passenger must be registered online with Royal Caribbean at least 4 days prior to the sail date.
Due to the unique nature of our event, we have a very strict cancellation policy. We HIGHLY recommend that passengers consider purchasing travel insurance.
Prior to March 2, 2019 passengers will be allowed to cancel with a FULL REFUND, minus a $51 per cabin cancellation processing fee.
From 8:00 am (Eastern Time) on March 2, 2019 to 8:00 am (Eastern Time) on August 1, 2019, passengers may be refunded 50% of all monies paid up to the date of their cancellation.
As of 8:00 am (Eastern Time) on August 1, 2019 all monies paid are nonrefundable. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE GIVEN FOR ANY REASON.
Any reservation cancelled for 90+ days of nonpayment will receive no refund at any time. There also will be no refunds given after the Cruise has occurred, including to those who do not show up on time or have unused tickets.
Again, we HIGHLY recommend that passengers consider purchasing travel insurance. Use any insurance provider you like, or to compare hundreds of plans from top providers visit the Squaremouth website. You can use their site to purchase online or to investigate every feature of every policy and if you purchase using the link above, NAHA receives a small commission.
Please note the cancellation provision of these Terms and Conditions applies to the Cruise, regardless of any representations made by RCI, whether in its passenger contract terms or elsewhere. All rights granted to passengers in the RCI passenger contract relating to the payment or refund of cruise fare and to cancellations by passengers shall not be operative.
The passenger who places a reservation for a cabin is considered the cabin’s “Primary” passenger and is SOLELY RESPONSIBLE for initiating or authorizing changes to the reservation.
If a Primary passenger’s reservation is transferred to a NEW passenger, the NEW passenger must pay all money due on the account up to the time it is transferred and will then be held to the same payment schedule as the party releasing the cabin was originally bound. Once the NEW passenger has assumed the financial responsibility, as herein described, for the cabin, a refund for the releasing party will be processed.
Up until the time the cruise is sold out, cabin transfers will be done at no charge. After the cruise is sold out, there will be a $300.00 transfer fee that must be paid by the relinquishing party. Under no circumstances will NAHA hold the NEW passenger of the cabin responsible for the $300.00 transfer fee.
All passenger changes must be initiated by the Primary passenger. Reservation changes can only be made by NAHA staff. The Primary passenger must call NAHA directly at 1-888-666-1499 to make changes.
All passenger changes must be completed by December 1, 2019.
Your decision to accept a roommate for the Cruise is at your own risk. NAHA and its Released Parties are not responsible nor liable for any and all claims or cause of action arising out of or in connection with your selection of a roommate for the Cruise, including, without limitation, any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from such request or selection.
It remains the Primary passenger’s responsibility to ensure that the total cruise cost is paid in full by all parties/roommates. In the case that a roommate defaults on payment, cancels their reservation or there is a dispute resulting in the desire to no longer room together, the Primary passenger shall be responsible for the full cabin cost and/or for finding a new roommate.
RIGHT TO CHANGE CRUISE ITINERARY
NAHA and/or RCI reserve the right, at any time, to change the cruise itinerary whenever advisable or necessary. In this case, NAHA and/or RCI will NOT be responsible for any loss or expenses caused by reason of such changes or abandonment. Refunds will NOT be made to passengers who elect not to complete the cruise for any reason or cause whatsoever.
PORTS OF CALL
You assume sole responsibility for your own safety in any port of call. NAHA and the other Released Parties do not guarantee your safety at any time. You may find information about the scheduled ports of call through the U.S. Department of State, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other governmental and tourist organizations. NAHA and the other Released Parties assume no responsibility for gathering and/or disseminating any such information.
SHORE EXCURSIONS, TRANSPORTATION, ONBOARD SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES
You acknowledge that shore excursions, tours, airline flights, ground transportation, medical services and other services and activities provided onboard (including, without limitation, shopping, spa and beauty salon services, fitness center, fitness classes, PADI courses, FlowRider, etc.) are operated by independent contractors. NAHA neither supervises nor controls their actions, nor makes any representation, whether express or implied, as to their suitability. These services are provided only as a convenience for you, and you are free to use or not use them. You agree that each of the Released Parties assumes no responsibility, does not guarantee performance and in no event shall be liable for any negligent or intentional acts or omissions, loss, damage, injury or delay to you and/or your property in connection with these services. You use them at your own risk.
AGE REQUIREMENTS / WHO MAY SAIL
Please make sure that everyone in your stateroom meets the following parameters and is eligible to sail.
- Infants who are at least 6 months on the day of departure, may sail.
- Women who will be less than 24 weeks into their pregnancy on the day of departure and for the duration of the cruise, may sail. This policy is due to the risk of premature labor. Pregnant women must have a letter from their doctor (on the physician’s letterhead) stating how far along (in weeks) their pregnancy will be at the beginning of the cruise, that mother and baby are in good health and fit to travel, and that the pregnancy is not high-risk.
- Adults aged twenty-one or older may sail. The cruise line shall refuse boarding to any guest under the age of twenty-one unless the guest is:
- Traveling in the same stateroom with an individual twenty-five years or older; or
- Traveling in the same stateroom with their spouse
- Proof of age and/or proof of marriage are required
Guests not conforming to these policies will be denied boarding and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued. Sorry, there are NO EXCEPTIONS to these policies.
PASSPORT AND LEGAL DOCUMENT REQUIREMENTS
The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) Passport Requirements became effective June 1, 2010, for land and sea borders. While the WHTI requires a valid passport for land and sea travel, a final ruling was issued allowing leniency for “closed-loop” cruises, i.e., sailings that both originate and terminate in the same U.S. port.
U.S. citizens taking “closed-loop” cruises are not required to have a passport, but will need proof of citizenship such as an original or certified copy of a birth certificate, a certificate of naturalization, a passport card, an enhanced driver’s license (EDL) as well as a government-issued photo ID. Children (18 and younger) also are required to bring proof of citizenship, and if 19 and older, a photo ID also is required. Canadian and Bermudian citizens are required to have a passport for air, land and sea travel, including all Royal Caribbean cruises.
Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens taking “closed loop” cruises, we strongly recommend all guests travel with a passport, valid for at least six months beyond completion of the cruise. Having a passport will enable guests to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port in the event they miss their scheduled embarkation or to fly back to the U.S. if they need to disembark the ship mid-cruise due to an emergency.
U.S. Alien Residents need a valid Alien Resident Card. Non-U.S. citizens need a valid passport and a valid, unexpired U.S. Multiple Re-entry Visa, if applicable.
For more information or to obtain a passport application, visit the U.S. Department of State website.
All guests must present the required documentation at embarkation. Guests without the required documentation will be denied boarding and no refund will be issued. Please understand that RCI will strictly enforce this requirement to be in compliance with this important U.S. Government mandate.
Family Legal Documents: Adults who are not the parent or Legal Guardian of any minor child traveling with them are required to present the child’s valid passport and visa (if required) or the child’s birth certificate (original or certified copy) and an original notarized letter signed by at least one of the child’s parents. The notarized letter from the child’s parent must authorize the traveling adult to take the child on the specific cruise and must authorize the traveling adult to supervise the child and permit any medical treatment that may need to be administered to the child. If a non-parent adult is a Legal Guardian, the adult must present a notarized certificate of Guardianship with respect to the child.
Non-U.S. Citizens will need a valid passport and, in some cases, a visa. If you live in the U.S., you will also need the original copy of your Alien Registration Card (ARC or “Green Card”) and any other documentation the countries on your itinerary require due to your alien status.
Citizens from the Visa Waiver Program countries will require a machine-readable passport valid for the duration of their voyage. A machine-readable passport has a code like this on the bottom of the picture page:
NAHA and the other Released Parties (as herein defined) assume no responsibility for advising you of immigration requirements. Non-U.S. citizens, including resident aliens, must contact the appropriate consulates, embassies and/or immigration office(s) to inquire about necessary documentation for the Cruise’s ports of call.
Your name, as listed on your travel documents, must exactly match your name as listed on your Cruise documents.
INOCULATION AND HEALTH
All guests must ensure that they are medically and physically fit for travel. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide guidelines as to which vaccinations are required in each country. In many cases inoculations are recommended, but in some circumstances, they are required. We recommend that you check with your health care professional or a Travel Medicine Specialist certified by the WHO for guidance. Other informational resources can be accessed at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Travelers’ Health website or toll free at 1-877-FYI-TRIP, and the World Health Organization website.
By booking the Cruise, you warrant that you, and those traveling with you, are physically fit to travel at the time of embarkation. You must notify NAHA at the time of booking of any disability or other medical or physical condition that may require special assistance during the Cruise. Your failure to do so will release the Released Parties from any liability for loss, damages or other compensation arising from or related in any way to such disability or condition. NAHA and RCI reserve the right to require that any passenger who is not self-sufficient travel with a companion who shall take responsibility for any assistance needed during the Cruise and in case of emergency.
PASSENGERS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
If you have a special need, please let NAHA know during the booking process. If something happens after you book call NAHA at 1-888-666-1499 as soon as possible. Royal Caribbean can accommodate an array of needs if notified in advance. Some services may require your request to be made 60 days prior to sailing (ex. sod for a service dog or a request for an interpreter), so let us know as soon as possible, exactly what you need.
Below is a list of common and not so common requests that can be accommodated, if known in advance: *
- Refrigerator for medicines
- Sharp’s Container for syringe disposal
- Distilled water and extension cord for CPAP and BIPAP machines
- Accessible stateroom with roll-in shower
- Raised toilet seat or commode chair
- Shower stool
- Oxygen supply delivery
- Dialysis supply delivery
- Large print materials
- For information regarding wheelchairs or scooters onboard (rentals or bringing your own), see Wheelchairs below
* Royal Caribbean is unable to guarantee an allergy-free environment; however, they can make reasonable accommodation(s) for your allergies. Not all disability and dietary requests may be able to be accommodated.
If a guest requires a wheelchair, powered wheelchair or scooter to use at any time during the course of their cruise they can bring their own or rent one from an outside vendor who will deliver it to the ship. Royal Caribbean does NOT offer these items for onboard use.
If you require the use of a wheelchair or scooter on board, please note that such items DO NOT FIT into a standard cabin – only the Handicap Accessible cabins are able to accommodate these items. You MAY NOT leave your wheelchair or scooter out in the hallway – this is considered a safety issue on board and the item will be removed by ship staff. If you need a wheelchair on board and are in a standard cabin, make sure the wheelchair folds.
The following vendors rent wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs and scooters to guests with disabilities and have security clearance to get on and off of Royal Caribbean ships:
Scootaround: 1-888-441-7575 or visit their website at https://www.scootaround.com/mobility-rentals/cruise
Special Needs at Sea: 1-800-513-4515 or visit their website at http://www.specialneedsatsea.com/
You assume all risks associated with travel and transportation on the Cruise. While at sea or in port, the availability of medical care may be limited and/or delayed. You acknowledge that all or part of the Cruise may be in areas where medical care and/or evacuation may not be available. You agree to indemnify and reimburse NAHA and/or RCI in the event that either party, in its sole discretion, chooses to advance to you the cost of emergency medical care, including medical evacuation and/or medical care provided ashore, as well as transportation and/or lodging in connection therewith. NAHA has no responsibility to advance any such costs.
RCI and NAHA assume no responsibility for carry-on luggage. Any luggage left at the pier will be forwarded at the guest’s expense. Claims for luggage loss or damage must be made in writing to debarkation personnel prior to leaving the pier area. All luggage must be stored in the passenger’s cabin. Pets, dangerous or illegal items such as weapons, explosives, combustible substances, non-prescription controlled substances, or illegal drugs may not be brought onboard the ship. Any such items shall be surrendered to security at embarkation and may be disposed of at the sole discretion of RCI Cruise Lines. All luggage hand-carried or checked is subject to search.
You may not sell, promote, distribute or offer for sale any merchandise, goods, souvenirs or other products on the Cruise without first obtaining NAHA’s written approval.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO RELEASE
NAHA and/or its promotional partners have the exclusive right to include photographic, video and other visual portrayals of passengers in any medium of any nature whatsoever for the purpose of trade, advertising, sales, publicity or otherwise, without compensation to passengers, and all rights, title and interest therein (including all worldwide copyrights therein) shall be NAHA sole property, free from any claims by passengers or any person deriving any rights or interest from passenger. A video crew may be shooting footage to be used for the promotion of future NAHA events. When the video team is shooting any particular location/venue on the ship, your presence in said location/venue acknowledges your permission for your likeness to be used in future, non-broadcast promotional videos or still pictures. If you do not wish to be filmed, please notify the video crew and be prepared for them to ask you to exit the location/venue for a short time until taping is complete.
PHOTO TAKING POLICY FOR PASSENGERS
Guests will be permitted to take photos and videos onboard the cruise and during performances with small, non-professional digital cameras and cell phones, at times, dependent upon the artist. Out of respect for our performers and your fellow guests, we ask that you please NOT use flash during shows. Professional quality cameras with detachable lenses and video specific cameras are strictly prohibited in performance venues. We appreciate your cooperation!
REFUSAL OF PASSAGE
Transportation on the Cruise may be denied to any person who, in NAHA’s or RCI’s sole discretion: (1) is or becomes in such a condition as to be unfit to travel; (2) is dangerous or obnoxious to others; or (3) is inadmissible under the laws of any country of debarkation. In addition, NAHA and RCI reserve the right to refuse passage, disembark or confine to a stateroom any person who’s physical or mental condition or behavior they consider, in their sole discretion, to constitute a risk to the person’s own well-being or that of any other person. NAHA and RCI has the right to disallow booking or boarding to any passenger that, in the opinion of NAHA and RCI, may impact the cruise, other passengers, or artists in a negative or disruptive way. NAHA and RCI shall have unilateral rights in any such decisions. The Released Parties shall have no liability to any such person or any third party arising out of any such decision. Any costs resulting from NAHA’s and/or RCI’s decision, including, without limitation, costs of lodging and transportation, shall be the responsibility solely of the person.
Passenger, or if a minor, his or her parent or guardian, shall be liable to, and shall reimburse Released Parties for, any damage to the Released Parties’ property, the Vessel, the Transport or any property of NAHA or RCI caused directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by any willful or negligent act or omission on the part of the Passenger; and Passenger, or if a minor, his or her parent or guardian, shall further indemnify the Released Parties and each and all of their agents and servants against all liability which the Released Parties may incur towards any person or company or government for any personal injury, death or damage to property caused directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by any willful or negligent act or omission on the part of Passenger.
Smoking is allowed on the ship in the following areas only: *
- Port Side of Ship in Outdoor Areas on Deck 11 (except in the Splashaway Bay kids’ water park) – When facing the pool deck stage, this area is to your right
- Outdoor Areas on Deck 12 (except in the area above the Splashaway Bay kids’ water park)
- Casino Royale (also has a designated non-smoking area marked with visible signs)
- Ale & Anchor Pub on Deck 5
* To assist in locating areas where smoking is permitted, guests will find visible signage posted within all smoking areas and ashtrays are provided for use. Guests may also inquire at Guest Services for the location of designated smoking areas.
Smoking Rules **
- Cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco must be properly disposed of and never thrown overboard.
- You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase, possess or use tobacco onboard.
- Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are only permitted within the designated smoking areas.
Smoking is NOT allowed in the following areas:
- Inside any stateroom or on any stateroom balcony. This applies to all stateroom categories onboard. If a guest is in violation of this stateroom policy, a cleaning fee of $250 USD will be applied to their SeaPass® account and may be subject to further action pursuant to the “Consequences Section” of the Royal Caribbean Guest Conduct Policy. **
- Interior public spaces (including dining venues, theatre, hallways, elevators, jogging track, etc.)
** It is VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE that the “Consequences Section” of the Guest Conduct Policy includes the following possible actions:
- Removal of certain onboard privileges, which may include being detained, quarantined or confined in a stateroom or holding cell;
- Denial of boarding on the current or any future Royal Caribbean International cruise vacation;
- Removal from a ship at the next port of call. Guests removed from a Royal Caribbean International ship pursuant to this policy are responsible for their own accommodations and transportation home, at their expense. Documentation requirements for re-entry into the guest’s home country are also the responsibility of the guest.
Royal Caribbean updated their smoking policy September 2013 and is enforced on all ships with cruises departing on or after January 1, 2014. Exceptions to this policy have been made for Rock Legends Cruise, allowing passengers to smoke in additional outdoor areas on Decks 11 and 12 and the Ale & Anchor Pub.
We have been very fortunate to establish an amazing relationship with Royal Caribbean. Please let’s continue to maintain that relationship and abide by this policy change.
ZERO TOLERANCE DRUG POLICY
NAHA has a zero tolerance policy regarding the use, possession, purchase or distribution of illegal controlled substances. Any violation of this policy will result in disembarkation from the vessel as well as the individuals being turned over to the local law enforcement officials for appropriate legal action. In such cases, NAHA and RCI shall not be liable for any refund or other compensation or damages.
LIQUOR AND BEVERAGE POLICY
Guests are prohibited from bringing any alcoholic beverages, non-alcoholic beverages or food onboard. Alcoholic beverages will not be sold or served to anyone under the age of 21. Royal Caribbean and NAHA reserve the right to refuse the sale of alcoholic beverages to anyone. Alcoholic beverages purchased in the ship’s gift shops or in ports of call will be held by Royal Caribbean until the end of the cruise.
CROWN & ANCHOR PROGRAM
Because we are chartering the entire ship, the Royal Caribbean Crown & Anchor program amenities offered on regular cruises are NOT available, including access to the Diamond and Concierge Clubs. However, you will earn cruise points for each night of the cruise, as with any other Royal Caribbean sailing.
DESIGNATED CHILDREN’S AREAS
Due to the small number of children sailing on the Rock Legends Cruise and the need for performance spaces and secure storage areas for band gear and other special equipment, NAHA will likely close some areas designated for children on regular cruises (ex., teen lounge, ice skating rink, etc.).
NATURE OF THE CRUISE
Rock Legends Cruise is an event cruise featuring multiple musicians. Nothing contained herein is intended to be, nor shall it be construed as a right or guarantee to specifically attend any particular concert on any particular date to be performed by any particular artist.
NAHA and Guest agree that Guest is purchasing passage on board a specific vessel during a specific period of time during which time it is anticipated that musicians will perform multiple concerts on board the vessel during the Cruise. Included in such purchase price, but ancillary thereto, is an entertainment package pursuant to which several artists will perform at a time or times during the Cruise which times will be announced prior to sailing and/or during the Cruise. Due to the large number of artists and other activities onboard, there may be some conflicting events and performances. NAHA cannot guarantee that any Guest will be able to attend every performance aboard the Cruise. It is also anticipated individual musicians will attend publicity and promotional events during the Cruise while on board to provide Guests an opportunity to meet the musicians in person. However, NAHA can make no guarantee that any guest will in fact be able to meet any of the musicians in person during the Cruise or related events.
All performances are festival style with general admission. NAHA will not guarantee you get to see a specific artist or meet them, but due to the multiple performances by each artist, it is our hope you will see the best shows of your life.
CANCELLATION BY NAHA AND / OR RCI
In the event of strike, lockouts, riots or stoppage of labor from whatever causes, or for any other reason whatsoever beyond the control of NAHA or RCI, RCI in its sole discretion may cancel, advance or postpone any scheduled sailing or call at any port and may (but is not obligated to) substitute another vessel, and neither RCI nor NAHA shall be liable for any loss whatsoever to passengers by reason of such cancellation, advancement, postponement, or substitution. Thereupon, NAHA shall return to you, if the Cruise is completely cancelled, your cabin fare and related taxes and fees, or, if the Cruise is partially cancelled, a proportionate part thereof. Under such circumstances, NAHA and the Released Parties shall have no further liability for damages or compensation of any kind. Please note that the availability of any refund for travel insurance and/or other travel products (airfare, hotel, car rental), will be determined in accordance with the applicable cancellation policies for such other products or services.
CANCELLATION BY ARTISTS
NAHA has entered into an agreement with each performing artist on the Cruise to be present on board the Cruise and perform in accordance with terms specified therein. However, neither NAHA nor RCI shall be liable or responsible for failure of any artist or musician to appear on board or to perform under its agreement.
