Cafe Caribe

Located very close to the Horizon Court, Cafe Caribe offers buffet with mostly Caribbean cuisine. Opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner and also late-night bistro service. 

International Cafe

Open 24-hours a day, the International Café located in the Piazza is the place for an ever-changing array of small bite meals, treats and gourmet beverages.

24-hr Room Service

We offer 24-hour complimentary room service when you want to enjoy a quiet moment in your cabin eating a delicious club sandwich or maybe that slice of chocolate fudge cake you can’t forget.

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.

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.

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.

*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.

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.

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.

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.

  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.
