PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITION EXCLUSION APPLICABLE TO ALL COVERAGE TRAVEL INSURANCE
We will not pay for loss or expense incurred as the result of injury or sickness of an insured or family member which manifests itself during the 60 days immediately preceding and including the effective date, unless the condition is controlled through the taking of prescription drugs or medication and remains controlled through the 60-day period. A sickness has manifested itself when: (a) medical care or treatment has been given or (b) there exist symptoms which would cause a reasonable, prudent person to seek diagnosis, care or treatment.
RIGHTS RESERVED & LIMITS OF RESPONSIBILITY
The transportation of passengers and baggage is governed by the terms and conditions of the Contract of Passage contained in the cruise ticket. The passenger's acceptance of the ticket contract and acceptance of passage on the vessel constitute acceptance of the terms, conditions and information contained in this document and the cruise ticket. It is recommended that you read the terms carefully.
Star Clippers reserves the right at its sole option and discretion and that of the Captain of the ship without liability for damages or refund of any kind to deviate from the ship's advertised or ordinary itinerary or route, to delay, advance or cancel any sailing, to omit or change ports of call and may, but is not obliged to, arrange for substantially equivalent transportation by another vessel and/or by other means of transportation, to cause the passenger to disembark from the ship temporarily or permanently, to tow or to be towed or assist other vessels, or to perform any similar act which, in its sole judgment and discretion, is justified for any reason.
Star Clippers may for any reason whatsoever cancel any sailing at any time before departure of the ship including the event of a full-ship charter. In such events, Star Clippers' only liability will be to refund to the passenger the amount it has received for the cruise ticket.
INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR/LIMIT OF LIABILITY
Star Clippers' liability and responsibility does not extend beyond the vessel; any arrangements made by or for passengers either before boarding or when disembarking are at the passenger's own risk. Star Clippers does not own or control any airlines, ground transportation or hotels. As a convenience to our passengers, Star Clippers may sell tickets for shore excursions or arrange other services that are operated by independent contractors, but Star Clippers shall not be responsible in any way whatsoever for any damage, loss, injury or death arising in conjunction with the services provided by these independent contractors.
