Sponsor, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

11. Limitations of Liability:  By entering the Contest, entrant agrees to release Sponsor and its subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies, prize suppliers, and each of its respective parent companies and such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Contest or receipt or use or misuse of any Prize.

Each entrant may post up to a limit of ten (10) photos per category, but each photo/entry must be unique.

The top 3 photos (one from each of the first three categories above) of each Ambassador’s will be published to the voting site for public voting. The video will be for internal viewing only. The earlier the content is submitted, the more time the content will be on the voting site.

Photo Requirements:

2.     The Photo cannot contain any trademarks or copyrighted materials, such as artwork or images, created by any other person or entity;

c.      “Adventurousness” – Is the Photo exciting, exhilarating, and stimulating (50%).

Collectively, the “Judging Criteria.”

Selection of Finalist Ambassadors:

Royal Caribbean will contact the Finalist Ambassadors via email to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (unless prohibited by law) within forty-eight (48) hours of the affidavit being sent. Failure to sign and return requested documentation within the specified time period, and the inability of Royal Caribbean to contact a preliminary Finalist within a reasonable time period, inability to obtain the requisite travel documents (such a work Visas), or noncompliance with these Official Rules by any preliminary Finalist will result in disqualification.

Royal Caribbean reserves the right to disqualify any entrant who, in the Royal Caribbean’s sole opinion, engages in any conduct via social media that is inconsistent with Royal Caribbean’s brand or that may reflect negatively on Royal Caribbean. Royal Caribbean reserves the right to conduct a background check on each Finalist and reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any Finalist based on the results of such background check, if Royal Caribbean determines in its sole discretion that awarding the prize to such Finalist might reflect negatively on Royal Caribbean.

Selection of the Grand Prize Winning Ambassador:

Verified preliminary Finalist Ambassadors will have their highest scored photo submission published on the voting platform. The voting platform will be open to the general public to place their vote for their favorite Ambassador beginning on July 2, 2018 at 12:00:00 p.m. ET and ending on July 15, 2018 at 12:00:00 p.m. ET.
