Terms and Conditions

Passage Contract Updated June 2023 1. Introduction We/Our/Us means Carnival plc, trading as Princess Cruises® and, where the context permits, includes the Carrier. PCL means Princess Cruise Lines Ltd, a Bermudan company. Carrier means PCL. In selling you cruises and issuing you tickets, Carnival plc acts as a sales agent for PCL. For bookings on Royal Princess®, Majestic Princess®, Grand Princess®, Diamond Princess®, Crown Princess® and Coral Princess® cruises departing from and returning to Australia, Carrier means Carnival plc and Carnival plc acts as principal in selling and issuing your tickets. You means you and all guests in your booking. You are entering into this contract with Carnival plc trading as Princess Cruises®, ARBN 107 998 443. 2. Your agreement with Us These, and Your Booking Confirmation, are the terms and conditions under which You book Your cruise holiday and travel on any Princess Cruises® product We sell You. Once We have received the first payment towards Your cruise holiday, a legally binding agreement on these terms and conditions becomes effective between all guests on Your booking(s) and Us or where applicable, the Carrier. By making a payment, You represent that You accept and have authority from all guests (or their parent/ legal guardian) on Your booking(s) to accept on their behalf, Our Passage Contract. Parents/legal guardians accept these terms and conditions on behalf of their children. It is important that You and all Guests in Your booking read them carefully and understand them. If You were not aware of these terms and conditions when either You or Your Travel Agent made this contract, You ratify and accept that you are bound by these terms and conditions by the act of boarding the vessel for the cruise that You have booked. Every guest in Your booking will have access to the booking (excluding credit card details). Any adult guest on the booking may amend the booking. Certain laws such as the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and any applicable state based consumer legislation (from here known as 'Consumer Laws'), may apply by law 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 cruise holiday. These Terms & Conditions do not alter any protection given to You by Consumer Laws. 3. Cruise itineraries are not guaranteed Many factors may affect Our ability to provide any particular itinerary. These include weather, mechanical difficulties, civil unrest or other unforeseen circumstances. We agree to use reasonable endeavours to provide a cruise in accordance with Our published schedules and itineraries. However, We do not guarantee itineraries and they do not form part of Your contract with Us. If We are unable to operate in accordance with Our published itinerary, We may in some circumstances offer You assistance or compensation in accordance with clause 31. 4. Booking and accommodation Each stateroom booked represents an individual booking and can accommodate between one (1) and four (4) guests, depending on the stateroom configuration. Each booking will be allocated a unique booking number. A single traveller supplement applies to guests occupying a room alone. If You decide to make Your Princess Cruises booking through a registered Travel Agent, any amendments or enquiries on the booking will need to be made by Your Travel Agent. A booking, and payments on a booking, can only be made by a person aged 18 years or over. You acknowledge that You have authority from all guests in the booking to make changes to Your booking. We reserve Our discretion to refuse to accept a booking request from any guest or group for any reason, acting reasonably. 5. Your Fare Your fare is determined by the fare type, the number of guests in Your stateroom, its location on the ship, the amenities offered, taxes, fees and port expenses (which are all subject to change), and any applicable airfares including taxes and fees, transfers and hotel accommodation. The cruise fare includes onboard accommodation, main meals, entertainment, some activities onboard, gym and some fitness classes, as well as taxes, fees and port expenses. Additional charges may apply to some entertainment and activities, and main meals at onboard specialty restaurants. A number of optional extras are available that are not included in the cruise fare including drink purchases, some onboard activities, shore tours, shopping, wifi internet, laundry services, day spa services, fitness classes and additional dining options. Once booked, Your fare may be subject to increased taxes, fees and port expenses. You will be notified of this before it is added to Your fare or to Your onboard account. In the event that a displayed price is incorrect, subject to any requirements under the Consumer Laws, We may retract the price and /or withdraw the product from sale and refund any payments made at the incorrect price. Sometimes We will release promotional fares. These can be offered and withdrawn at any time. If after booking You decide to change to one of these promotional fares, You may need to cancel Your existing booking and Our ‘Cancellation and Refunds’ Policy outlined in clause 14 will then apply. We may elect to impose a fuel supplement at any time, in which case any additional fees 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. 6. Onboard credit Onboard credit (OBC), which may also be referred to as Onboard Spending Money, may sometimes be offered as part of a promotional campaign (Promotional OBC) or it can be pre-purchased (Purchased OBC). Onboard credit is a monetary amount in a specified currency which is applied to Your onboard account to be used for onboard purchases, excluding casino credit and medical expenses. Any unused portion of Promotional OBC will expire at the end of Your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time. Any Purchased OBC will be refunded at the end of the cruise if not used. All types of onboard credit are not transferable between any cruises, including back-to-back cruises. 7. Deposits and Payments Your booking is not secure until We have received a deposit in cleared funds. If Your deposit as indicated on Your booking confirmation is not received by Us within three (3) days from the date that You make the booking, Your booking will be cancelled automatically by Our system. DEPOSITS A deposit is required for all guests (including third and fourth berths) travelling on a cruise/cruisetour. The amount of deposit varies according to the cruise itinerary and length.

From time to time, We may release promotional fares that have different payment conditions. Please ensure You check the payment conditions at time of booking. 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. 8. Payment service fees When booking directly with Princess Cruises, service fees apply to payments made by credit cards or by PayPal. Service fees for credit cards, per transaction, are 1.1% for Visa and MasterCard, 2.75% for American Express and 2.3% for Diners Club cards. For PayPal transactions, a 1% service fee applies. BPAY® Pay for your cruise from your Australian bank account via internet or phone banking using BPAY. Please note, the BPAY Reference Number is unique for each Princess Booking, so can only be used to make payments specifically to that booking. BPAY is free and easy to use. Once the payment has reached your booking you will be emailed a new booking confirmation with an updated balance. Please note, it may take up to 3 bank business days for your BPAY payment to reach your booking. There is no service fee for debit card or BPAY payments. Service fees are subject to change and will be advised at the time of payment. 9. Waitlist Bookings If Your requested cruise or stateroom category is unavailable, You can choose to create a 'waitlist booking'. This means that if Your requested cruise or stateroom category becomes available, You will be sent a ‘waitlist match' via email. Once sent, You have until the date listed on the ‘waitlist match’ to accept the booking or it will automatically cancel. If accepted, Your booking will be subject to Our normal ‘Deposits and Payments’ and ‘Cancellation and Refunds’ policies outlined in this Passage Contract. There is no deposit required for guests who already have a booking and would like to waitlist for a different stateroom category on any cruise. For a waitlist only booking, a deposit of $200 per booking is required. If Your waitlist is accepted the waitlist deposit paid will contribute to Your booking deposit. If You do not accept the waitlist match, or a waitlist match does not become available, the waitlist deposit is fully refundable. 10. Changing Your cruise holiday If You choose to change Your booking to a different cruise, or to a different sector of a World Cruise, 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. 11. Name changes Once You have made Your booking, please check Your invoice on 'Cruise Personalizer', or with Your Travel Agent to ensure the details are correct. Should You need to make changes to Your booking (spelling corrections or to replace a guest*), no administration fees will apply. Please note however, that additional fees charged by airlines for any changes will be passed onto guests. *One original guest from the booking must always remain in the stateroom. If all original guests cancel / are replaced, the booking will be considered cancelled and will be subject to Our ‘Cancellation and Refunds’ Policy set out in clause 14. If a cancelling guest was the only person that qualified the booking for a promotional fare (eg. past guest fare), additional and remaining guests will no longer be entitled to the promotional fare. The booking will revert to a different fare and the remaining guests will need to pay the difference in cost, if any. Changes can only be made up to 48 hours before departure. 12. Stateroom changes and upgrades When making a booking with a specific stateroom number, please advise Us or Your Travel Agent if You do not want Your stateroom changed. This means that You will not be offered a complimentary upgrade to a higher priced category, if one was to become available. Please note that Your specific stateroom number and bedding configuration can still be changed for operational reasons, including when the number of people booked in the stateroom is less than the number of beds in the stateroom. In addition, when a booking is made and a specific stateroom number is not selected (known as a 'Guarantee'), the stateroom will be allocated at Our discretion in the category booked, or a higher priced category, at a later date. 13. Travel Insurance We strongly recommend You purchase comprehensive international travel insurance at the time You pay Your deposit. As Australian Medicare and New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation do not cover Your travel onboard, it is important that international travel insurance is purchased for all voyages (including domestic Australian itineraries which do not visit international ports). If You do not purchase travel insurance, You may not be able to recover cancellation charges, medical costs, repatriation and other expenses that may arise if things do not go according to plan. 14. Cancellation and Refunds Although We would love to see You onboard, We understand that plans can change. Should You need to cancel Your booking, We ask that You notify Your Travel Agent or Our Contact Centre at Your earliest convenience. The refunds or cancellation charges that will be payable depend on the departure date of Your cruise or cruisetour and the amount of notice You give Us, as follows: Cruise and Cruisetours Sailings 24 nights or less (including World Cruise Segments) Days prior to Cruise or Land Package Departure Item(s) Assessed Cancellation Charge# 181 days or more None None 90 to 180 days Cruise fare Deposit Amount 43 to 89 days All Items 25% of Total Cost 15 to 42 days All Items 50% of Total Cost 14 days or less All Items 100% of Total Cost Sailings 25 nights or more (including Full World Cruise and World Cruise Segments) Days prior to Cruise or Land Package Departure Item(s) Assessed Cancellation Charge# 181 days or more None None 120 to 180 days Cruise fare Deposit Amount 64 to 119 days All Items 50% of Total Cost 43 to 63 days All Items 75% of Total Cost 42 days or less All Items 100% of Total Cost Note: 'Total Cost' is the total amount payable to Us for Your booking. #Any additional fees charged by airlines, hotels or transfer providers due to cancellations, will also be passed on to the guests.

We are unable to accept any guests who will have entered their 24th week or later at any time during the cruise. 17. Minimum age to travel Royal Princess®, Majestic Princess®, Diamond Princess®, Crown Princess®, Grand Princess® and Coral Princess® cruises departing and returning to Australia. To ensure there is suitable supervision, there needs to be at least one guest 18 years or older in each stateroom. However, to accommodate families cruising together, children may occupy a separate stateroom to their parent/legal guardian, providing one child is 16 years or over. For cruises departing from an Australian port between 1 November and 7 January, We will permit a quota of 20 guests per cruise who are under the age of 19 and not accompanied by a responsible adult. Once this quota is filled, We will require guests who are under the age of 19 to travel in the same room as a responsible adult 19 years or older. In addition, from 8 January to 31 January, We will permit a quota of 60 guests per cruise who are under the age of 19 and not accompanied by a responsible adult.

We can advise You at the time of booking whether the limit applies to Your booking. Princess Cruises can waive the responsible adult requirement at its discretion. Any requests for review of a waiver application decision can be made by contacting Princess' Customer Service Team. In determining waiver requests We will take into account, the risks of an unauthorised event occurring, the risks of secondary supply of alcohol to minors or any other risks of excessive behaviour. The responsible adult is accountable for guests under 19 years of age in their stateroom for the duration of the cruise, and the 'Travel Restrictions and Rights of the Captain' under clause 32 will be applied to anyone who displays disruptive behaviour. For cruises operating in Japan: To ensure there is suitable supervision, there needs to be at least one guest 20 years or older in each stateroom.

We can advise You at the time of booking whether We are able to accept bookings for children on the cruise You have chosen. Parents/Legal Guardians are responsible for children at all times. If a child displays dangerous or disruptive behaviour, the 'Travel Restrictions and Rights of the Captain' will be applied to both parent/legal guardian and child.

Your passport must be valid for a minimum of six months beyond the date of Your cruise return and have sufficient blank pages for entry and exit stamps and visas. 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. It is Your responsibility to ensure You have all the necessary documentation which permits You to travel, including visas for ports at which You do not intend to disembark. We will not provide You with a refund or reimbursement for any expenses or losses incurred as a result of Your failure to comply with these requirements. In addition, travel on a round trip cruise from Australia will not be recognised by Australian Immigration to have left Australia and therefore the cruise cannot be used to revalidate an Australian visa. 21.

All identification documents must be original. 22.

In addition certain electrical items and personal grooming devices, such as power boards (without surge protection devices), laptops, phone and camera charges, hair dryers and straighteners, curling irons and shavers may be allowed onboard if they are deemed to be in a safe and proper working condition, and used with proper caution. However, if such devices are deemed to pose a hazard, they will be confiscated and available for collection at the end of the cruise. All luggage, including hand and check-in, will be x-rayed at embarkation. In addition, it may be necessary for Our staff and other parties, such as port and government agencies, to search You and Your luggage. You agree to allow such searches. Any prohibited items or items which may pose a quarantine or safety risk found in hand or checked in luggage will be confiscated and, if appropriate, will be available for collection at the end of the cruise. If the confiscated item is not collected at the end of the cruise, You must contact Us within three (3) days of disembarking to claim the item if Your item is appropriate to be returned. If You do not contact Us within this time Your item will be destroyed. All items purchased during Your cruise will be subject to applicable quarantine clearance procedures by local authorities on disembarkation. We can deny boarding or disembark any person in possession of any weapons or illicit substances. We may also hand these items over to law enforcement agencies. 23. Onboard Purchases All Princess Cruises’ ships operate on a ‘cashless’ system. When You become OceanReady® using the MedallionClass™ App, You will be asked to add a credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard or Amex) which will be associated with Your Medallion® wearable (the “Medallion”). The Medallion is what You will use onboard for all Your onboard purchases. As an alternative to using a credit or debit card, You can add funds to Your Medallion using cash. Where You do use a credit or debit card, We will obtain pre-authorisations from Your bank for the amounts spent on each day of Your cruise. These amounts are not actual charges, although they may appear like a charge on Your bank account or statement, they are holds to ensure You have sufficient funds available to settle Your account. Please be aware that while they are not actual charges, the pre-authorisations will be deducted from Your available bank account/credit card balance. At the end of the cruise, the final amount of Your onboard account will be charged to Your debit or credit card in full. Once the full amount is charged to Your card, We will contact the bank to have the pre-authorisations released; however some banks may hold these for up to 30 days. To help speed up this process We recommend getting in contact with Your bank or card issuer before Your cruise to advise them of Your travel plans. Service fees apply to all onboard credit card transaction. Service fees for credit cards, per transaction, are 1.1%. There is no service fee for debit card payments. This fee will be charged once only at the end of the cruise. 24. Alcohol & gambling We are committed to the responsible service of alcohol.

Your health You warrant that You are medically and physically fit for travel, and that such travel will not endanger Yourself or anyone else. Our medical centres are not required to be and are not equipped to the same standards as a land based hospital nor are they designed for the provision of extensive or continuing treatment. It is up to You to ensure that if You require doctor’s clearance to travel that You obtain that clearance. We may request that You provide such clearance to Us at any time. If a guest has a condition that We decide may seriously affect the enjoyment, health or safety of themselves or any other person onboard, We can refuse or cancel a booking. Such decisions will be made giving reasonable consideration to Your circumstances and We will advise You of Our decision as soon as possible. Where Your booking is cancelled You may be entitled to a refund. Guests with restricted or limited mobility and those with medical conditions must be self-sufficient or travel with a carer or someone who can assist with day-to-day activities. Our crew and medical staff are unable to act as personal carers. Guests who are bringing a wheelchair or mobility aid onboard must advise Us at the time of booking. You must provide Your own wheelchair or mobility aid and must ensure it can be stored inside Your cabin. Limited areas of the ship may not be wheelchair accessible. Please note that some ports can only be accessed using the ship’s tenders. Tender boats and tender ports are generally not accessible to guests confined to a wheelchair or with significant mobility impairments. 28. Onboard medical centre Each ship has a medical centre that is staffed by qualified, licensed doctors and nurses, who, in addition to routine clinic hours, are available 24 hours a day in the event of an emergency. All of Our medical centres are well equipped to handle most medical conditions and are accredited to international healthcare quality standards. All cruises on Our ships are outside the scope of Australian Medicare, New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation and private health insurance. Consultations, treatments and medication are charged at private rates and must be paid by You and claimed through Your international travel insurance. While all of Our medical centres are equipped to handle many medical conditions, there may be occasions where it becomes necessary to disembark or evacuate a guest to receive further essential medical treatment. To ensure guest safety, this decision will be made by the onboard doctor and the Captain. All of Our medical centres are only for medical needs arising onboard 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 guest arising from any advice, treatment, care, services or any omission by medical staff. These medical providers exercise their own medical judgement and expertise. 29. Other service providers and arrangements onshore While We specialise in cruising holidays, You may choose to book other services with Us such as flights, accommodation, transfers and shore excursions. We can assist You in making these arrangements; however, We act only as a booking agent. The service providers are solely responsible for the information and service offered and their conditions will apply. Where possible, We will assist in addressing any concerns You may have with the service providers. Any arrangements made by or for You are Your responsibility and entirely at Your own risk. Please note, airline terms and conditions may require full non-refundable payment prior to Princess Cruises' normal payment conditions. In the event that You go ashore You do so at Your own risk. You are responsible for adhering to the local laws, regulations and customs. We take no responsibility for any injury or loss that occurs while You are not onboard the ship. 30. Shipboard Environment There are some inherent features of travel by cruise ship which You should be prepared for. Some noises and vibrations are associated with the normal operation of the ship. Maintenance may occur in certain areas of the ship while You are onboard which may affect access to these areas. Weather conditions may also require Us to restrict access to certain areas of the ship for safety reasons. 31. 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. If We are forced to cancel Your cruise for any reason prior to departure We will provide a full refund. Since Your itinerary is not guaranteed, please do not make any important arrangements or meetings based on the proposed itinerary. Changes within Our control Where We make a significant change to the ports in Your itinerary prior to departure and this is due to a circumstance within Our control, for example for operational or commercial requirements 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. For the purposes of this clause, 'significant change' means a change to the city of departure or disembarkation, or to the majority (by number) of the other ports in Your itinerary. Changes outside Our control If it is necessary to change the itinerary due to safety, maritime law, severe weather, to protect human life or health or other factors outside Our control, We will attempt to offer a revised itinerary as close as possible to the original itinerary. We will not provide any compensation in connection with the revised itinerary unless Consumer Laws require otherwise. 32. Travel Restrictions and Rights of the Captain During the cruise the Captain will exercise complete control over the ship and take such actions as he or she thinks necessary to preserve the safety and integrity of the ship and the comfort, safety and enjoyment of the guests and crew. You are responsible for ensuring that no travel restrictions apply to You. If police or any other authority in any jurisdiction notify Us of, or We otherwise become aware of, any matter that reasonably causes Us to believe Your presence onboard presents a risk to Your own health or safety or the health or safety of other guests and crew, We, or the Captain, may deny You boarding and may refuse or cancel any bookings from You. Once the cruise has commenced, if a guest seriously affects the safety, well-being or enjoyment of themselves or any other person onboard, the Captain has the right to confine, sedate or disembark the guest. 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 onboard, comes first. 33. Leaving the cruise early If You are required, or choose, to leave the cruise for any reason (unless caused by Our proven negligence or failure to provide services with due care and skill and that are reasonably fit for purpose), We are not responsible for any expenses, including Your return home. This also applies if You do not return to the ship in time for sailing after a port visit. 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. 34. Princess Local Partnership Program Princess Cruises is committed to supporting communities in the destinations We visit. As part of Our Princess Local Partnership Program, a $2 donation will be automatically added to the onboard folio of each guest aged 18 years or over on all New Zealand itineraries (including Australia & New Zealand combined itineraries). The donation will be used towards community based initiatives in the destinations We visit. This is an optional donation and You may remove it from Your account at the Guest Services Desk before You disembark. Visit the Princess Cruises website for more information on our latest Princess Local Partnership Initiatives. 35. Limitation of liability for Recreational Services Save for liability for significant personal injury caused by Reckless Conduct by Us or Our servants or agents, We exclude liability for all Excluded Recreational Liabilities arising out of the supply of Recreational Services. 36. Time limits for claims You agree to use all reasonable efforts to report any complaints or claims onboard, or otherwise bring the matter to Our attention as soon as possible. You acknowledge that failure to bring any matter to Our attention whilst onboard will limit Our ability to investigate the matter following Your cruise. Where Consumer Laws and other laws permit Us to exclude Our liability, We will not be liable for: loss of, or damage to, any luggage or other belongings sickness, injury or death, unless caused by Our proven negligence or failure to provide services with due care and skill and that are reasonably fit for purpose. In addition, Our liability will be reduced in proportion to any negligence or fault on Your part. 37. Severability These Booking and Passage Conditions must, so far as possible, be interpreted and construed so as not to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, but if a provision, on its true interpretations or construction is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable: that provision must so far as possible, be read down to the extent that it may be necessary to ensure that it is not illegal, invalid or unenforceable and as may be reasonable in all the circumstances so as to give it a valid operation; or if the provision or part of it cannot effectively be read down, that provision or part of it will be deemed to be void and severable and the remaining provisions of these Booking and Passage Conditions will not in any way be affected or impaired and will continue notwithstanding that illegality, invalidity or unenforceability. 38. Choice of law and jurisdiction This contract is governed by the laws in force in New South Wales. You agree that any action You bring against Us will be brought in New South Wales, Australia. If You have a claim against Us, You agree only to bring action against Us and not any of Our related bodies corporate as defined in the Corporations Act 2001(Cth). 39.
