Linking Policy For Travel Agents
The Terms and Conditions of Use set forth herein apply to the entire group of Company Websites. Many Company Websites contain links to or frames of non-Company Websites. We try to include links and frames only to other sites that are in good taste, but we do not control nor are we responsible for the contents of those sites. Similarly, we cannot guarantee that such non-Company Websites will not change without our knowledge. The inclusion of a link to or frame of any non-Company Websites does not imply the Company's endorsement of the linked or framed sites or their content. Any concerns regarding any such service or resource, or any link thereto, should be directed to the particular service or resource
The Company encourages links to its Internet sites by bona fide travel agents. Any such links to a Company Website must conform to the following rules:
Unless the Company provides you, the travel agent, with prior authorization in writing, any link to a Company Website must use one of the logos (displayed at right) which are protected by trademark law.
The Company grants you a limited license to use these logos, but does not transfer title in these logos to you. The logos may only be used as an active link to the appropriate Royal Caribbean or Celebrity Cruises site. (Simply right-click on the appropriate logo and save it to your directory.)
You may not use the above logos to imply that any portion of the Company has sponsored or endorsed your World Wide website without receiving the prior written permission of the Company.
You may not alter the logos in any way, including proportions or colors, and may not animate or morph the logos to change their appearance.
You may not use the logos on any site which, in the Company's sole discretion, disparages Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises or their affiliates, or their respective products or services.
The logos may only be used on World Wide Web pages which, in the Company's sole discretion, make accurate references to the Company and its products and/or services. The logos must be placed on the same page as the reference to Royal Caribbean or Celebrity Cruises and as close to the reference as feasible.
Any link to a Company Website must only be to that site's home page. As an example, the home page of various Company Websites may be viewed and accessed from the link displayed beneath the logos listed below. No "deep linking" to other pages on a Company Website is permitted without the Company's prior written consent.
The Company may, in its sole discretion, terminate your right to use these logos at any time. The Company may take action against any use of the logos that does not conform to these policies or that infringes any right held by the Company and will actively seek the recovery of any costs it may incur preventing any such misuse or damages that may result from such misuse.
Other Logos And Graphics
No logos or graphics other than those listed here may be used without the prior written approval of the Company. Any unauthorized use of any materials contained on a Company Website may result in criminal or civil penalties and the Company will actively seek the recovery of any costs and damages it may incur preventing the misuse or misappropriation of its property.
Royal Caribbean International sailings may be operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., or its affiliates, including but not limited to RCL Cruises Ltd., RCL (UK) Ltd. (with respect to certain Brilliance of the Seas sailings) and Royal Caribbean (Cruzeiros) Brasil. See your passenger ticket contract for the identity of the specific operator/carrier for your sailing. Your operator/carrier, or another member of the RCL Group of companies, acts as an intermediary between you and any airlines, hotels, transport operators, shore excursion providers, and other contractors providing any third party services to you. For more details, see your passenger ticket contract.
Nonrefundable Deposit Program
A booking made under the non-refundable deposit cruise fare rate (an "NRD Booking") requires the payment of a non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. The deposit is not refundable at any time after it has been paid. Payment of full deposit and full name are required for each guest at the time of booking. Deposit made toward Guarantees and Grand Suites and higher categories are non-refundable and subject to NRD Booking terms.
If the guest cancels an NRD Booking prior to the final payment due date, the cancellation terms of the cruise ticket contract apply, and Royal Caribbean will issue a future cruise credit in the amount of the deposit paid minus a $100USD per person service fee to the guest named on the cancelled NRD Booking (the "FCC"). The FCC is applicable only towards the purchase of a Royal Caribbean cruise and expires 12-months after the issue date (the "Expiration Date"). Any amount remaining after the Expiration Date will be void and forfeited. The FCC is non-transferable, non-refundable, and not redeemable for any other form of compensation, credit, or cash. For NRD Bookings that require a deposit of $100USD or less, no FCC or any other compensation or credit of any kind will be issued.
Each time the guest changes the ship or sail date of an NRD Booking prior to the final payment due date, payments made towards the NRD Booking will be applied to the balance of the modified booking and a $100USD per person service fee will be charged to the modified booking.
