OTHER INFORMATION

Diamond Princess is a luxury destination in itself. Wake each morning in anticipation of a new horizon. Take in the view from one of nearly 740 balcony staterooms. Indulge in a hot stone massage at the renowned Lotus Spa, enjoy fine dining in a formal or relaxed atmosphere and make it a cruise to remember. Personal Choice Dining -- Only Princess offers this innovative approach to dining, enabling guests to dine how, when and with whom they want. Passengers may choose either the restaurant-style Anytime Dining option that allows them the same flexibility found in shore side establishments, or the Traditional Seating experience with an assigned dining time, table mates and wait staff. Diamond Princess offers five main dining rooms -- one larger room dedicated to traditional seating, plus four more intimate Anytime Dining rooms (which can also accommodate traditional seating when needed.) The ship also offers a 24-hour buffet, 24-hour room service, a variety of poolside snacks, and two alternative dining options -- Sabatini's Trattoria and the premium Sterling Steakhouse. Environmental Systems -- Diamond Princess operates with diesel and gas turbine propulsion, allowing for efficient and environmentally sound operation. The gas turbines are located in an unusual place -- the ship's funnel -- which opens up extra space on lower ship decks. A further key feature is the incorporation of the latest environmental concepts. These include low emission power generation systems and the latest low emission waste treatment technology.

Booking information

To reserve a cabin(s), you must complete our reservations enquiry form which is easy to follow and secured with the latest encryption technology.

Alternative you can contact us by -

  • Email Cruise Republic on cruise@cruiserepublic.info
  • Telephone 1300 44 00 26 (Australia) or 0800 122 129 (New Zealand)

At the time of reservation you must provide us with your full name as it appears on your passport as well as your date of birth. By making a booking with us through any of the three methods you will be deemed to have agreed to our information, Terms and Conditions.

Once you have submitted your enquiry through our website, you will receive a “CR” reference number and a bounce back email to the email address provided. This reference number is confirmation we have received your enquiry and we will come back to you shortly with the details of your booking – please be aware, this is not a confirmation and is only a summary of your booking request. We will hold the cabin in your name “for up to 5 days” as controlled by the cruise line themselves. On some cruises, the payment may be required on the day of booking or within 1-5 days of making the booking as controlled by the cruise line.

Once we have held a cabin, we will contact you via phone or email, to advise of availability and confirm the price and details. A booking is confirmed when you have been received an email confirmation notice and should you wish to proceed, we will provide you with our payment options to make your deposit payment (or full payment if the cruise is within 90 days). Your payment then becomes subject to the cancellation policy of the cruise line and Cruise Republic. These are stated in the terms and conditions. When your booking has been confirmed with a deposit payment we will send you your cruise booking number with the cruise line. Once you receive your confirmation, please check your details carefully and notify us immediately if there are any incorrect details, as it may not be possible to make changes at a later date without incurring a penalty. If you are booking via phone, please first make sure you have read the terms and conditions. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the customer to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website.

Information disclosure

In booking on/via this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Cruise Ship company/operator.

Amendments

Once you have paid a deposit against your cruise, any changes made to the booking will incur an amendment fee of $50 plus and applicable fees set you by the cruise line. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy.

Cancellations

Once a deposit is made towards your cruise holiday it is deemed that you have accepted our terms and conditions, so are subject to any cancellation fees. Bookings cancelled after the deposit is paid, will incur a cancellation fee of $200 per cabin plus any additional cancellation fees set out by the cruise line. There are no cool down periods. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy.

Due to the issuing of refunds via Cheque by the cruiselines, refunds can take 4-6 weeks to reach us should you be entitled to any refund.

Payments

Payments towards your cruise holiday made by credit cards are subject to a transaction fee of 1.5% for Visa and Mastercard payments. We also accept AMEX which incur a 3.2% credit card fee. Debit cards are processed like a credit card therefore credit card fees will apply per transaction. Payments made by bank deposit do not incur any transaction fees nor do payments made using the BPAY payment system. Please be aware payments made via bank deposit or BPAY within 24 hours of your booking expiring will require a legitimate receipt/screen shot of payment emailed through.

Onboard Credits

On selected departures we will offer you onboard credits & these may not be combinable with all cabin categories and promotions. We will send you through a confirmation which will confirm if the onboard credit is available against your booking. Making changes to your reservation could result in any onboard credits being removed. Once you have embarked the ship, the onboard credit will be applied to your onboard account to use towards any onboard purchases. Any unused portion of the Onboard Credit will expire at midnight on the last night of your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time.

'Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings

From time to time, we may offer you the option of making what we call a 'Guarantee (GTY) booking. This means you may book a stateroom of a guaranteed category type (Inside, Outside, Balcony) on your chosen ship and cruise. However, the exact grade, number and location of the stateroom on the ship will be allocated at the cruise lines discretion and at any time until checking in at the Port. Once your GTY stateroom has been allocated to you, we are unable to accept any changes requested by you. The benefits of a GTY stateroom are that after your booking has been confirmed, the cruise line may (at their discretion) upgrade your stateroom to a higher classed category to that originally booked at no extra charge to you. In any event, you are 'guaranteed' the minimum category you decide to book at the time of the cruise including obstructed view cabins.
If travelling with Family and Friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you not to book on a Guarantee.
We cannot guarantee your cabins will be assigned near one another, on the same deck, same side or forward/aft on the ship nor accept any requests.

Complimentary Upgrades

Depending on any last minute availability the cruise lines will automatically upgrade cabins to higher categories. The upgrades can place you towards the front of the ship, midships or at the back of the ship and not necessarily on a higher deck level (i.e.: Insides Deck 10 may be upgraded to Ocean view Deck 5). As the cruise lines cannot upgrade every booking, you should book a category in which you are happy to sail. Once the upgrade has been assigned, should you dislike the cabin location we are unable to accept any changes or requests and cannot be reversed.
If travelling with family and friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you to decline the upgrades. The cruise line do not guarantee all of the cabins will be upgraded, or that they will be upgraded near one another.

Future Cruise Credits

While we are happy to apply your Future Cruise Credits from the cruiselines to your booking with us, this may affect your online discounted pricing. We will still do our best to provide competitive pricing based on the discount we can offer on the new cruise fare once the future cruise credits have been applied to your booking. Please note if Future Cruise Credits are applied after your deposit has been paid may affect your final balance.

Passport & Visa Requirements.

For all international cruises all passengers will require to be in possession of a valid passport. The passport must have 6 months validity from the cruise return date.
Visa's may also be required and at the sole responsibility of the passenger. Please check with the relevant embassies or a Visa Services company for assistance.
Cruise Republic will not take any responsibility for passport or visa requirements.

Princess Cruises Booking Conditions

Please note the terms and conditions listed below is a shorterned version. To view the full version (which you are bound by) please click here - http://www.princess.com/legal/passage_contract/index.jsp.

Introduction

These are the terms and conditions under which you book your cruise holiday and travel on any Princess Cruises product we sell you. You are bound by these terms and conditions, so it is important that you read them carefully.

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, except for bookings on Sun Princess and Dawn Princess where Carrier means Carnival plc. In selling you cruises and issuing you tickets, Carnival plc acts as a sales agent for PCL, except for bookings on Sun Princess and Dawn Princess where Carnival plc acts as principal. For bookings on Sea Princess cruises departing and returning to Australia, Carrier means Carnival plc and Carnival plc acts as principal in selling and issuing your tickets.

You are entering into this contract with Carnival plc trading as Princess Cruises®, ARBN 107 998 443.

Certain laws such as the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (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 cruise holiday. These 'Terms & Conditions' do not alter any protection given to you by consumer laws.

All prices are correct at the time of publication and are quoted in Australian dollars, unless otherwise noted.

Bookings

Each stateroom booked represents an individual booking and can accommodate between one (1) and four (4) passengers, depending on the stateroom configuration. Each booking will be allocated a unique booking number.

Your agreement with us

When you first make a payment towards your cruise holiday, you represent that you have the authority from all passengers on your booking(s), to accept our 'Terms & Conditions' on their behalf. Parents/Legal Guardians accept the 'Terms & Conditions' on behalf of their children, including those who travel in a separate stateroom. Once we have received a payment on a booking, an agreement on these 'Terms & Conditions' becomes effective between all passengers on the booking(s), 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 three (3) days from when the booking is made. If payment is not received within this time, your booking will be automatically cancelled.

On some cruises, the deposit may be required on the day of booking or within 1-3 days of making the booking, as controlled by Princess cruises.

It is essential that you make final payment by the due date and in accordance with the type of fare you have purchased. If payment is not received by the due date, bookings will be automatically cancelled and our 'Cancellation & Refunds' policy will apply. 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.

Cruise Tickets

After you have paid your deposit, we will give you instructions to complete an online check-in “Cruise Personaliser” via the Princess cruises website. You will be required to enter in your passport information and nominate an emergency contact person.
Upon completion Princess cruises will will release the tickets on the Cruise Personaliser and we will post these out to you in due course (within 40 days of your departure).

If this is not completed there will be delays with your documentation.

Please ensure you let us know if your postal address has changed.

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 end of the following business day to accept the booking. If accepted, your booking will be subject to our normal Payments and Cancellations & Refunds policies outlined below. There is no deposit required for passengers 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.

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 may 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 onboard, we understand that plans can change. Should you need to cancel your booking, we ask that you notify your Travel Agent or our Cruise Contact Centre at your earliest convenience.

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

Pack n Go / Flash Fare / Last Minute

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 Princess Cruises. Please refer to “Guarantee (GTY) Bookings.”

Fares are not combinable with any onboard credit promotion.

Fare is fully non refundable and non transferable.

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.

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, and any applicable airfares including taxes and fees, transfers and hotel accommodation.

Fare changes

Once booked, your fare is only subject to any increased taxes. You will be notified of this before it is added to your fare or to your onboard account.

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 will need to cancel your existing booking and our 'Cancellation & Refunds' policy will apply.

Stateroom changes

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 stateroom can still be changed for operational reasons, including when the number of people booked in the cabin is less than the number of beds in the cabin.

In addition, when a booking is made and a specific cabin number is not selected (known as a 'Guarantee'), the cabin will be allocated at our discretion in the category booked, or a higher priced category, at a later date.

Fuel Supplement

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.

Booking Changes

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 the following administration fees will apply:

Changes/Requests

Our Fee

Spelling Correction (per person)

$0 ^

Replacement Passenger* (per person)

$25 ^

^ Please note however, that additional fees charged by airlines for any changes will be passed on to the passengers.

*One original passenger from the booking must always remain in the cabin. If all original passengers cancel / are replaced, the booking will be subject to applicable cancellation charges. If a cancelling passenger was the only person that qualified the booking for a promotional fare (eg. 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. Changes can only be made up to 72 hours before departure.

Should you decide to upgrade/downgrade your cabin category or sailing date, any onboard credit benefits may drop.

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 are 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

Sun Princess, Dawn Princess and Sea Princess cruises departing and returning to Australia -

To ensure there is suitable supervision, there needs to be at least one passenger 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, any passenger under 19 years of age on the day they board the cruise, must travel in the same stateroom as a responsible adult 19 years or older. In addition, from 8 January to 31 January, there is a limit on the number of passengers under 19 years of age who can travel unaccompanied. Once the limit is reached, a responsible adult 19 years or older must travel in the same stateroom. We can advise you at the time of booking whether the limit applies to your booking. The responsible adult is accountable for passengers under 19 years of age in their stateroom for the duration of the cruise, and the 'Rights of the Captain' will be applied to anyone who displays disruptive behaviour.

All other Princess Cruises® ships -

To ensure there is suitable supervision, there needs to be at least one passenger in each stateroom aged 21 years or older. In order to accommodate families cruising together, children may occupy a separate stateroom to their parent/legal guardian, providing one child is aged 16 or over.

Children & Teenagers

Children love to cruise and Princess Cruises welcomes them onboard. Due to limited neo-natal facilities onboard and at the destinations we visit, the following minimum ages apply:

Itinerary

Minimum age to travel

Alaska, Canada & New England, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Europe (excluding transatlantic voyages) and Panama Canal

6 months

All other itineraries

12 months

In addition, infants aged between six (6) months and three (3) years must remain with their parent/legal guardian at all times.

For the safety and enjoyment of all onboard, there are limits on the number of children and teenagers that can be carried within different age groups. The age of the passenger on the day they board the cruise, is the age we use for the entire holiday. 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 and teenagers at all times. If a child or teenager displays dangerous or disruptive behaviour, the 'Rights of the Captain' will be applied to both parent/legal guardian and child/teenager.

Children's access to pools and spas may be restricted and adult supervision is required.

Children Centres

Children less than three (3) years of age are welcome to use the Children Centres' facilities under the direct supervision of their parent/legal guardian. To attend the Children Centres without a parent/legal guardian, children need to be three (3) years of age or over and toilet trained.

Use of the Children Centres requires daily registration and entry is on a first-come-first-served basis as places are limited. On all ships, except Pacific Princess®, Royal Princess® and Ocean Princess®, group child minding for children three (3) to 12 years is available between 10pm and 1am only, for a charge.

Requirements to travel

Passports, visas, vaccinations and other travel documentation 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. It is also your responsibility to ensure you have all the necessary documentation which permits you to travel. If you do not have all the necessary documentation, you may be denied boarding and no refunds will be given.

For international cruises (cruises that visit a foreign port), passports are required for all passengers and must be valid for a minimum of six (6) months beyond the date of the cruise return. In addition, travel on our cruises will not revalidate an Australian or New Zealand re-entry visa.

For domestic cruises (cruises that do not visit a foreign port), a valid passport or government issued photo identification is required (Queensland Proof of Age cards will not be accepted). For Australian passengers, a current Medicare card can be used for passengers under 18 years of age. For New Zealand passengers, an original or certified copy of the child's birth certificate or a school pass with photo will be accepted.

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. To consume alcohol or gamble onboard, the following minimum ages and corkage charges apply:

 

Sun Princess, Sea Princess Dawn Princess departures

All other Princess Cruises' departures

Minimum age

18 years

21 years

Corkage (per bottle)*

AUD20

USD15

*Corkage charges only apply to wines and/or champagne brought onboard and consumed in the dining room or alternative restaurants.

Government issued photo identification may be requested (Queensland Proof of Age cards will not be accepted).

On the day of embarkation, passengers over the minimum age may bring onboard one bottle of wine or champagne per person to celebrate. Any other alcohol purchased ashore will be collected at the gangway for safe keeping and will be returned to you on the last day of your cruise.

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. If you have a medical condition, we may 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 onboard, 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. As long as you have provided us with a completed health questionnaire with all relevant information about the condition, you will be entitled to a full refund if we cancel your booking on the basis of this condition.

Passengers that need assistance should always be accompanied by a carer to help with day to day activities as our crew and medical staff are unable to act as personal carers.

Onboard medical centre

The Princess Cruises' medical centres are staffed by fully registered and licensed doctors and nurses who are available 24 hours a day in case of an emergency. Our facilities are well equipped to deal with both minor injuries and most major medical conditions. Please note, our facilities are only for medical needs arising onboard and can not 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.

Onboard 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 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:

  1. the new itinerary;

  2. an alternate sailing, subject to current fares and availability; or

  3. cancelling the cruise for a full refund of your fare paid.

Once your cruise has commenced, 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, unless consumer laws provide otherwise. 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 onboard, 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 onboard comes first.

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.

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.

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.
You agree only to bring action against Carnival plc and not PCL or any of Carnival plc's other related bodies corporate as defined in the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).
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.

Privacy

Privacy laws safeguard your personal details.

Personal Information

During the booking process and your cruise holiday, we ask for information about you. 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. If you do not wish to receive such offers or be contacted to provide feedback, please let us know. We may also be required to pass your information on to various third parties such as immigration officials, service providers and insurers.

If you consult the medical staff onboard, any information shared with them may be made available to relevant people within our own organisation and also externally to medical specialists, insurance providers and our professional advisors.
