THE THINKING PERSON’S CRUISE<br />

Created for curious travellers, with true explorer spirits<br />

WE ALL TRAVEL TO EXPLORE, TO LEARN, TO UNDERSTAND. At <strong>Viking</strong>, we believe travel<br />

should be more than just a trip—it should be a doorway to cultural insight and personal enrichment.<br />

That is why our cruise itineraries are designed to help you explore and engage with your destination<br />

through its food, culture, countryside and customs.<br />

BEFORE you travel, we provide you with materials to help you plan and anticipate your journey,<br />

from filmographies that inspire wanderlust to recommended reading that informs and enlightens.<br />

ONBOARD activities are designed for the thinking traveller seeking enrichment and renewal.<br />

We offer informative lectures on history and art, cooking demonstrations, restaurant menus inspired<br />

by local cuisine and other opportunities to share your region’s culture with fellow travellers.<br />

ASHORE, you might accompany the ship’s chef on a visit to a local market; step behind the<br />

scenes at a famous theatre company; tour a glassblower’s workshop; or view private collections<br />

and hidden vaults at world-class museums.<br />

CONNECT with like-minded travellers on board our ships, designed with a comfortable intimacy<br />

to encourage lifelong friendships and an ease of discovery that unfolds with the leisurely pace of<br />

the river. By journey’s end, our aim is to help you feel more connected—to your newfound friends<br />

and the world.<br />

THE SMALL SHIP EXPERTS<br />

<strong>Viking</strong> takes you closer to your destination with large, expansive windows,<br />

and the ability to dock in the heart of small towns<br />

THE BEST WAY TO IMMERSE YOURSELF in new cultures is to explore the world by river.<br />

That is why we designed elegant, intimate ships with all the amenities of a fine hotel. Our ships<br />

gently carry you to the world’s greatest cities, deliver you to the centre of charming towns and<br />

villages, and connect you to your destination.<br />

IT IS PURE PLEASURE TO TRAVEL WITH SUCH EASE…to unpack just once and relax to an<br />

ever-changing canvas of breathtaking landscapes…to dock in the centre of small towns and stroll<br />

right off to begin your exploration. <strong>Viking</strong> puts the Danube, Rhine, Seine, Portugal’s Douro, China’s<br />

Yangtze and many other rivers right outside your door, revealing the true character of each region<br />

through its historic waterways.<br />

THE DESIGN OF OUR SHIPS ENHANCES YOUR JOURNEY. Inventive and innovative, our<br />

<strong>Viking</strong> Longships have set the new standard in river cruising, expertly crafted to bring the outside<br />

in, so your destination is always within reach. With the most al fresco dining options on the rivers<br />

and vast windows that bathe the interiors in sunshine, you can enjoy the fresh air, natural light<br />

and exhilaration of the outdoors.<br />

Because we own and operate our ships, no detail escapes our attention—this is what sets us apart.<br />

We also never forget that looking after you is how we became the world’s #1 <strong>River</strong> Cruise Line. Join<br />

us, and learn why our guests return again and again. And why we have consistently been the most<br />

awarded river cruise line worldwide.<br />

VIKING HAS FINE-TUNED THE ART OF EXPLORING THE WORLD in understated elegance.<br />

Our ships have been thoughtfully engineered by experienced nautical architects to help you connect<br />

with your destination in every way. Graceful rooms were designed for your comfort and serenity, and<br />

light-filled spaces inspire and refresh you throughout your journey.<br />

WE HAVE DESIGNED OUR SHIPS DOWN TO THE MOST MINUTE DETAIL—from the light and<br />

a perfect place to read up on your next destination. In the sun-filled <strong>Viking</strong> Lounge, portions of the<br />

the Aquavit Terrace on the <strong>Viking</strong> Longship. This glorious outdoor seating area at the bow of the ship<br />

provides the most al fresco dining on Europe’s rivers. Have a casual meal here, meet friends for drinks<br />

and enjoy breathtaking views of Budapest’s Parliament building on the Danube or medieval hilltop<br />

castles along the Rhine. Or enjoy a multicourse meal in the Restaurant, our elegant dining venue with<br />

panoramic windows that welcome ever-changing views.<br />

On top of the ship, relax on the Sun Deck while you take in 360° views. Exercise en plein air on our walking<br />

track. And enjoy the fragrances of our onboard herb garden, harvested daily by our culinary staff.<br />

VIKING HAS THE MOST<br />

ON EUROPE'S RIVERS<br />

vikingcruises.co.uk


DESTINATION−FOCUSSED DINING<br />

The most al fresco dining on the rivers,<br />

featuring regional cuisine and always available classics<br />

WITH VIKING, CUISINE AND WINE ARE PART OF THE JOURNEY. Both engage your senses<br />

and open a window to the traditions and essence of a place. Our highly trained chefs are passionate<br />

about food and committed to providing an enriching culinary experience, whether you are savouring<br />

local specialities or international classics. And our ships’ dining areas are the ideal setting for hospitable,<br />

attentive and personal service.<br />

Much of the joy of travel lies in sampling the fresh fare and regional cuisine that bring your destination<br />

to life. Locally sourced ingredients—like Provençal lemons, Hungarian paprika and rosemary from the<br />

onboard herb garden—inspire our chefs to create authentic regional dishes. Our extensive wine list<br />

enhances your meal and features a vintage created by our own vintner.<br />

Our signature “Taste of…” events introduce you to the food and drink of the region. The “Taste<br />

of Germany,” for instance, features pretzels and sweet mustard, bratwurst and Kölsch. It is the<br />

perfect opportunity to mingle with fellow guests and sample the flavours of local culture.<br />

IMPECCABLE SERVICE AMID CASUAL ELEGANCE. Indulge in attentive table service in the<br />

elegant Restaurant as you sail into your next port. Greet the morning with a sumptuous buffet.<br />

Enjoy a savoury soup and a light salad midday. Come evening, settle in for a relaxed, multicourse<br />

fine-dining experience. Open seating allows you to dine with the same guests or meet someone<br />

new each day. If you wish, enjoy a more casual meal, from a breakfast croissant to lighter evening fare,<br />

on the Sun Deck or Aquavit Terrace, our al fresco dining area at the bow of the ship.<br />

DID YOU KNOW?<br />

A Tile’s Tale<br />

Everywhere you look—from churches and palaces to train stations and park benches—Portugal is<br />

decorated with azulejos. Tin-glazed ceramic tiles, the azulejos are used on floors, walls and ceilings<br />

as a decorative element as well as a functional one. Originating from Moorish traditions, the tiles are<br />

arranged in geometric patterns. In the late 17th century, Delft influenced a change to the blue and<br />

white portrayal of scenes from Portuguese history and culture.

DID YOU KNOW?<br />

Medieval Tollbooths<br />

The castles along the Rhine Valley were originally constructed as fortified residences to protect the land<br />

from marauders — but castle owners also utilised their strategically advantageous positions to impose<br />

tolls on passing merchants. This may explain why you will see so many castles while cruising the 35-mile<br />

stretch of the Rhine between Mainz and Bonn, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.<br />

centuries of change and turmoil<br />

without being destroyed is its<br />

location. Marksburg sits atop a<br />

steep, isolated hill on a bend in the<br />

river. In the past, the formidable<br />

terrain discouraged enemies, so it<br />

escaped attack. Thankfully today it<br />

welcomes <strong>Viking</strong> guests through its<br />

historic and atmospheric rooms.<br />

X Marksburg Castle<br />

X Bamberg<br />

Beautiful Bamberg<br />

One of the loveliest of German<br />

towns, Bamberg is magnificently<br />

sited on seven hills and is bisected<br />

by rivers and canals, with an<br />

atmospheric maze of crooked lanes,<br />

medieval buildings and a skyline<br />

punctured by church steeples. Its<br />

history-steeped centre is home<br />

to a magnificent 11th century<br />

Cathedral and everywhere you<br />

go is filled with romantic charm.<br />

Bamberg is a UNESCO-listed<br />

history lesson that was built by<br />

archbishops, earning it the title<br />

of ‘Franconian Rome’. A tour<br />

of the city also takes you to the<br />

picturesque City Hall built on a<br />

tiny island in the middle of the<br />

Regnitz <strong>River</strong> near its confluence<br />

with the Main. Bamberg is also<br />

justly famous for its beer; available<br />

in its many brewpubs. Be sure to<br />

take some time to sample the local<br />

Rauchbier, a smoky beer with a<br />

centuries-old tradition.<br />

Wander around Heidelberg<br />

Enjoy a wonderful walk around<br />

one of Germany’s oldest and<br />

unashamedly romantic cities.<br />

Famous for its historic university<br />

(Germany’s answer to Oxbridge),<br />

Heidelberg boasts many other<br />

obvious attractions, such as its<br />

beautiful baroque old town and<br />

the magical, partly ruined, picturebook<br />

castle Schloss that overlooks<br />

it. With a history as dramatic and<br />

romantic as its Gothic-Renaissance<br />

looks – one of Palantine princes,<br />

stampeding Swedes, Protestant<br />

reformers, raging fires and lightning<br />

bolts – it’s little wonder that the<br />

Schloss inspired artists and writers<br />

alike during the late 18th and early<br />

19th centuries, from the American<br />

author Mark Twain to the British<br />

painter, William Turner.<br />

A few highlights of your journey<br />

Würzburg Residence Palace<br />

For centuries the resident princebishops<br />

wielded enormous power<br />

and wealth, and the city of<br />

Würzburg grew in opulence under<br />

their rule. Their crowning glory<br />

is the UNESCO-listed Bishops’<br />

Residenz, one of Germany’s finest<br />

baroque palace ensembles, built<br />

between 1720 and 1744.<br />

The Middle Rhine<br />

Straight out of a picture book,<br />

the romantic Middle Rhine is<br />

a river valley with precipitous<br />

cliffs, a castle perched on virtually<br />

every hilltop and pretty villages<br />

lining the river banks. Myths<br />

and legends abound in this area,<br />

such as the story of the Lorelei,<br />

the beautiful siren of the rocks<br />

who lured sailors to their doom.<br />

The river valley extends from the<br />

old Roman town of Koblenz, via<br />

the Lorelei Rock, to Bingen and<br />

Rüdesheim and includes the steep<br />

vineyards that produce the famous<br />

Rhine wines. In recognition of its<br />

status as one of the world’s oldest<br />

and most magnificent cultural<br />

landscapes, UNESCO declared<br />

the Upper Middle Rhine Valley a<br />

World Heritage site in 2002, one of<br />

outstanding universal value.<br />

Regensburg<br />

Historic and vibrant, Regensburg<br />

is one of Bavaria’s most beautiful<br />

cities and among the best-preserved<br />

medieval towns in Europe. The<br />

city is the oldest on the Danube,<br />

its history dates back nearly<br />

2,000 years. Still standing are<br />

the Roman gates, Porta Pretoria,<br />

built in 179 A.D. The city centre<br />

escaped damage in the war,<br />

and its architectural gems and<br />

half-timbered buildings exude a<br />

timeless charm.<br />

A few highlights of your journey<br />

Cruise through the<br />

Middle Rhine<br />

Straight out of a picture book, the<br />

romantic Middle Rhine is a river<br />

valley with precipitous cliffs, a<br />

castle perched on virtually every<br />

hilltop and pretty villages lining<br />

the riverbanks. Myths and legends<br />

abound in this area, such as the<br />

story of the Lorelei, the beautiful<br />

siren of the rocks who lured sailors<br />

to their doom. The romantic<br />

and most magnificent cultural<br />

landscapes, UNESCO declared<br />

the Upper Middle Rhine Valley a<br />

World Heritage site in 2002, one<br />

of ‘outstanding universal value.’<br />

X Speyer<br />

Stroll around Speyer<br />

The market town of Speyer is<br />

a pleasant, quiet place to walk<br />

around, but its romantic charm<br />

hides a history of great political<br />

and religious significance. First a<br />

Celtic settlement, then a key player<br />

in the Holy Roman Empire, Speyer<br />

really came into its own during<br />

the Middle Ages when, under the<br />

Salian emperors, it hosted around<br />

50 imperial parliament sessions.<br />

Unscathed by WWII, you can still<br />

visit its most famous sites, from<br />

the extraordinary Romanesque<br />

cathedral to a medieval synagogue.<br />

Spectacular Strasbourg<br />

There are so many ways to spend<br />

a memorable few hours in this<br />

beautiful city. A fascinating blend<br />

of both French and German<br />

influences, of traditional past and<br />

progressive present, is revealed in<br />

Strasbourg’s charming architecture,<br />

magnificent art and renowned<br />

cuisine. Lovers of striking<br />

architecture need look no further<br />

than its spectacular Strasbourg<br />

Cathedral. This immense gothic<br />

beauty is a mixture of filigree<br />

stonework and lacy spires, leering<br />

gargoyles and flying buttresses<br />

situated supremely at the centre of<br />

the city. As world-renowned French<br />

poet and novelist Victor Hugo once<br />

said of the cathedral, “The true<br />

triumph of this Cathedral is the<br />

spire. It is a veritable tiara of stone<br />

with its crown and its cross. It is a<br />

gigantic and delicate marvel.”<br />

DID YOU KNOW?<br />

Through Artists’ Eyes<br />

Southern France has long served as a creative muse to artists who are drawn to its warm light and<br />

vibrant landscape. In the mid-19th centrury, painters such as Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet found<br />

inspiration here. Others soon followed. Van Gogh produced some of his most famous works in Arles,<br />

including Café Terrace at Night. Fellow post-impressionist Paul Cézanne based many of his own works<br />

on the countryside around Aix-en-Provence.<br />

DID YOU KNOW?<br />

The Mystery of Russian Icons<br />

Icons are mysterious paintings that were part of Russian religious life since 300 AD. Icons (obraz),<br />

often painted on wood, are flat, two-dimensional images, similar to early Gothic European art.<br />

This flatness reminds the viewer that they do not represent the material world; instead the<br />

viewer should seek spiritual truth. On some you will see a gold or silver metal covering (riza),<br />

which shows only key parts like the face, hands and feet. And since the fall of communism, the<br />

art of icon painting has experienced a renaissance.<br />

Heritage Site. The city’s neoclassical<br />

architecture, inviting public spaces<br />

and myriad monuments are so<br />

beautifully preserved that Bordeaux<br />

is not only an enviable destination<br />

but a sought-after film location as<br />

well. Enjoy its elegant ensemble of<br />

stately buildings, manicured parks,<br />

sidewalk cafés, graceful bridges and<br />

river views.<br />

Distinctive Delicacies<br />

Everyone knows that Bordeaux<br />

is one of the world’s leading<br />

wine capitals. But the region also<br />

offers its own unique style of<br />

cuisine. Near the Atlantic coast,<br />

there is excellent seafood along<br />

with delectable French classics<br />

and a wide variety of cheeses.<br />

Sausages, lamb, goose and pork<br />

are prepared with subtle Basque<br />

flavours. Specialities include fresh<br />

Atlantic oysters, Cèpes de Bordeaux<br />

(mushrooms) and palombe (wood<br />

pigeon). Top off your meal with<br />

Bordeaux’s famous chocolate<br />

truffles, or cannelé cakes made<br />

with vanilla and rum — and a<br />

sweet Sauternes or smooth<br />

Cognac.<br />

X Explore vineyards in Saint-Émilion<br />

Historic Saint-Émilion<br />

With a population of about 2,500,<br />

Saint-Émilion is a UNESCO<br />

Site — as much for its wine-making<br />

heritage as for its superb medieval<br />

streets and buildings. Spend a<br />

delightful afternoon exploring<br />

the town’s churches, gardens and<br />

shops and tasting local vintages<br />

like Château Ausone, Cheval Blanc<br />

and Pomerol.<br />

X Experience regional wine tasting<br />

A few highlights of your journey<br />

Bucharest’s Old Princely Court<br />

The Lipscani district harbours<br />

myriad charms along welcoming<br />

cobblestone lanes. At its centre<br />

stands the Old Princely Court<br />

and Church. Only a few walls and<br />

columns remain of the court, built<br />

in the 15th century by Vlad Tepes,<br />

also known as “Vlad Dracula.”<br />

The oldest document calling<br />

Bucharest by name, signed by the<br />

Vlad himself, was discovered here.<br />

The Old Court Church next door<br />

is the oldest in Bucharest and was<br />

once the coronation venue<br />

for Romanian princes.<br />

Cossack Culture<br />

Rich in history, the island of<br />

Khortitsa was first mentioned<br />

in the 10th-century writings of<br />

Byzantine emperor Constantine<br />

VII. The highlight of the Cossack<br />

Museum of Khortitsa’s interesting<br />

historic exhibits depicts the<br />

enduring legacy of the region’s<br />

proud Cossack people. After<br />

visiting, enjoy a special show of<br />

Cossack horsemanship, music<br />

and dance.<br />

Potemkin Steps<br />

Odessa’s most iconic symbol, the<br />

Potemkin Steps, was made world<br />

X Visit the Romanian Athenaeum in Bucharest<br />

famous by the historical film<br />

Battleship Potemkin. The massive<br />

outdoor staircase was completed<br />

in 1841, providing this port city<br />

on a high plateau with convenient<br />

access to the sea. Visitors today can<br />

enjoy glorious views of Odessa’s<br />

bay and harbour from the 192<br />

stairs—refurbished in 1933 with<br />

rose-gray granite—or opt for the<br />

modern escalator alongside them.<br />

A few highlights of your journey<br />

Angkor Wat<br />

This 12th-century temple<br />

complex is simply staggering. The<br />

national symbol of Cambodia, it<br />

is described as the eighth wonder<br />

of the world. Its name translates<br />

as ‘heaven on earth’. Gaze in awe<br />

at carvings of giant gentle faces,<br />

and images depicted in bas-relief.<br />

Back to school<br />

As everyone knows, education<br />

is one of the best ways to help<br />

lift a community out of poverty.<br />

From Siem Reap, visit a <strong>Viking</strong>sponsored<br />

school that helps provide<br />

the young people of the village<br />

with the education they deserve.<br />

X Angkor Wat temple<br />

Floating markets<br />

In the vast Mekong Delta, the<br />

floating markets at Cái Bè present<br />

extraordinary colours, sounds,<br />

X Floating Market, Vietnam<br />

sights and scents. A sampan ride<br />

through these natural waterways is<br />

the best way to get up close to the<br />

boatmen and women selling their<br />

wares.<br />

Ho Chi Minh City<br />

With its French colonial<br />

architecture, traditional pagodas,<br />

incense-infused temples,<br />

21st-century skyscrapers and<br />

futuristic shopping malls, HCMC<br />

is high-energy Vietnam at its most<br />

captivating. The best of both<br />

worlds in one exciting city.<br />

The Lifeblood of Egypt<br />

In a land known for drought, the<br />

Nile has always had extraordinary<br />

power, giving life to generations<br />

and setting the rhythm by which<br />

Egyptians live. It rises south of the<br />

Equator out of the Blue Nile and<br />

the White Nile and pours endlessly<br />

north into the Mediterranean Sea.<br />

Travelling over 4,000 miles, it is<br />

the world’s longest watercourse<br />

and is regarded as the father of<br />

African rivers.<br />

The Temple of Horus<br />

In the form of a falcon, a colossal<br />

statue of the god Horus greets<br />

you at the door, while columns,<br />

walls and doorways, covered in<br />

temple in Egypt, the Temple of<br />

Horus was constructed between<br />

237 BC and 57 BC. Horus was<br />

BC, and later was promoted to<br />

BOOKING CONDITIONS<br />

These Booking Conditions apply to all bookings which are confirmed as accepted by us on or after 01 July 2019. In respect of any<br />

other bookings accepted by us prior to this date please contact us for booking conditions that apply to your particular bookings.<br />

INTRODUCTION<br />

Your contract is with <strong>Viking</strong> <strong>River</strong> Cruises UK Limited,<br />

a company registered in England and<br />

Wales (Co.No.01283655) whose registered office is<br />

at Nelsons House, 83 Wimbledon Park Side, London,<br />

SW19 5LP.<br />

Your contract incorporates these Booking Conditions<br />

and by making a booking with us you confirm your<br />

acceptance of these Booking Conditions.<br />

‘<strong>Viking</strong>’, ‘<strong>Viking</strong> Cruises’, ‘<strong>Viking</strong> <strong>River</strong> Cruises’<br />

and ‘<strong>Viking</strong> Ocean Cruises’ are trading names of<br />

<strong>Viking</strong> <strong>River</strong> Cruises UK Limited.<br />

Your contract will constitute a package under the<br />

Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements<br />

Regulations 2018 (“Regulations”) and set out at<br />

the end of these Booking Conditions is a summary of<br />

your key rights under the Regulations.<br />

In the unlikely event of any conflict between these<br />

Booking Conditions and the provisions of the<br />

Regulations, the provisions of the Regulations shall<br />

take precedence.<br />

A. BOOKING AND PAYMENT<br />

A1. YOUR RESERVATION<br />

A1.1 When you make a booking and pay your<br />

deposit or full payment (as applicable), we will<br />

reserve your travel arrangements on the basis of<br />

these Booking Conditions. Your booking will be<br />

taken as confirmed in respect of all persons named<br />

on your booking and a binding contract between us<br />

will come into existence only upon the earlier of (a)<br />

our sending our Confirmation Invoice and/or ATOL<br />

Certificate to you or your Travel Agent or (b) the issue<br />

of tickets in your name. Prior to doing so, we or your<br />

Travel Agent may send you an acknowledgement of<br />

your booking. Any such acknowledgement simply<br />

indicates that we are dealing with your booking<br />

request and is not a confirmation of it.<br />

A1.2 Please check your Confirmation Invoice and/<br />

or any ATOL Certificate together with all other<br />

documents we or your Travel Agent send you as<br />

soon as you receive them. Contact us or your Travel<br />

Agent immediately if any information which appears<br />

on the Confirmation Invoice and/or ATOL Certificate<br />

or elsewhere appears to be incorrect or incomplete,<br />

as it may not be possible to make changes later. We<br />

regret we cannot accept any responsibility if we are<br />

not notified of any inaccuracies in any document<br />

within ten days of our sending it out (five days for<br />

tickets). Whilst we will do our best to rectify any<br />

inaccuracies notified outside these time limits,<br />

you will be responsible for any costs and expenses<br />

involved in doing so except where we made the<br />

mistake and there is good reason why you did not<br />

contact us within the above time limits.<br />

A1.3 Normally your cabin number will be advised at<br />

the time of booking or on the Confirmation Invoice<br />

but this is not guaranteed and may be altered at any<br />

time.<br />

A1.4 At the time of booking we may not be able<br />

to confirm your exact air or rail arrangements due<br />

to airline and rail operator booking restrictions.<br />

However your Confirmation Invoice and/or ATOL<br />

Certificate will detail those arrangements reserved<br />

for you and/ or those arrangements provisionally<br />

reserved for you and/or those arrangements we<br />

intend to reserve for you. Please note flights may be<br />

indirect and that some airlines charge for luggage<br />

separately. In addition your arrangements may be<br />

subject to change by the relevant airline or train<br />

operator. Please also note we cannot confirm or<br />

guarantee specific airline or rail seat numbers.<br />

A1.5 Any contract is with the “Lead Name” as shown<br />

on the Booking Form. We can only accept a booking<br />

if the Lead Name is at least 18 years old on or before<br />

the date of departure. Please note that you must be<br />

aged 21 or over in order to purchase or consume<br />

alcoholic beverages whilst on board our vessels.<br />

A1.6 The Lead Name is responsible for ensuring that<br />

other members of his/her party are aware of these<br />

Booking Conditions and that they consent to him/<br />

her acting on their behalf in dealings with us.<br />

A1.7 If for any reason you did not see a copy of these<br />

Booking Conditions when you made your booking<br />

and, having now seen them, you now wish to cancel<br />

your booking then you may do so by returning all<br />

documentation to us or your Travel Agent within 7<br />

days of receipt of these Booking Conditions and all<br />

monies provided by you shall be returned provided<br />

that travel has not commenced. Cancellation under<br />

this sub-clause is not permitted if your booking was<br />

made less than 10 weeks prior to travel commencing.<br />

A2. OUR PRICE POLICY AND PAYMENT TERMS<br />

A2.1 We reserve the right to alter prices shown in<br />

any of our brochures or in any website and we will<br />

inform you of any price changes prior to the issue of<br />

our Confirmation Invoice and/or ATOL Certificate.<br />

Once our Confirmation Invoice and/or ATOL<br />

Certificate has been issued then, save in the case of<br />

manifest error, any price changes may only be made<br />

in accordance with the remaining provisions of these<br />

Booking Conditions.<br />

A2.2 When you make your booking you are required<br />

to pay a deposit of 25% of the total price. If your<br />

travel is due to commence within 10 weeks of your<br />

booking then the total price shall be payable at the<br />

time of booking. In any event the balance of the<br />

total price of your travel arrangements must be paid<br />

at least 10 weeks prior to travel commencing. Your<br />

booking will not be confirmed until we receive your<br />

deposit and if the balance is not paid by the due<br />

date then we shall cancel your booking and retain<br />

any deposit. Any monies paid to any Travel Agent<br />

in relation to your booking are held by such Travel<br />

Agent on our behalf at all times.<br />

A2.3 Once you have paid your deposit and our<br />

Confirmation Invoice and/or ATOL Certificate is<br />

issued the price of your travel arrangements is fully<br />

guaranteed and will not be subject to any surcharges<br />

or alteration (save in the case of manifest error or<br />

changes requested by you to travel arrangements<br />

are made and where additional costs are incurred).<br />

However if we do not receive the balance of the total<br />

price of your travel arrangements when due, your<br />

booking may be cancelled pursuant to clause A2.2<br />

and any re-booking may well be at a higher price.<br />

A2.4 Please note that from time to time airlines<br />

alter their baggage allowance policies and this may<br />

occur after we issue our Confirmation Invoice and/<br />

or the ATOL certificate. We have no control over any<br />

such changes and you will be responsible for any<br />

additional charges that the relevant airline may levy<br />

in respect of checked-in luggage that exceeds any<br />

limits in such altered baggage allowance policy.<br />

A3. WHAT IS INCLUDED AND EXCLUDED IN THE COST<br />

OF YOUR HOLIDAY<br />

A3.1 The details of what is included in the cost of<br />

your holiday is set out in the individual tour package<br />

details in our brochure or on our website.<br />

A3.2 Any further items or services purchased on<br />

board are not included in the costs of your holiday.<br />

B. CHANGES AND CANCELLATION BY US<br />

B1. IF WE CHANGE YOUR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS<br />

BEFORE DEPARTURE<br />

B1.1 We hope and expect to be able to provide you<br />

with all the services we have confirmed to you in our<br />

Confirmation Invoice and/or ATOL Certificate.<br />

On occasions changes do have to be made (for<br />

example due to river conditions such as high or low<br />

water levels, lock closures, local mooring restrictions<br />

or adverse weather conditions) and we reserve the<br />

right to make these. Most of these changes are minor.<br />

However, if we consider them a “Significant Change”<br />

we will endeavour to advise you or your Travel Agent<br />

as soon as reasonably possible. A Significant Change<br />

includes, purely by way of example, a change of<br />

accommodation to that of a lower category and/<br />

or price, a change of flight or rail times of more than<br />

12 hours, a change of UK departure location, or a<br />

significant change of destination or cruise itinerary.<br />

In accordance with EU regulations we are required<br />

to advise you of the actual air carrier operating your<br />

flight/ connecting flight/transfer. We do this by<br />

listing carriers to be used or likely to be used on the<br />

relevant brochure pages and/or on our website and/<br />

or on your Confirmation Invoice and/or your ATOL<br />

Certificate. Where your Confirmation Invoice or<br />

ATOL Certificate indicates that flight tickets have not<br />

yet been assigned, we will notify you of the actual<br />

flights and carrier as soon as the flights have been<br />

assigned. Any changes to the actual airline after you<br />

have received your tickets will be notified to you as<br />

soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the<br />

boarding gate. Such a change is deemed to be a<br />

minor change.<br />

B1.2 Save where clause H1 applies, if we have to<br />

make a Significant Change before your departure<br />

we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible<br />

to advise you of any change and we will, if possible,<br />

provide you with three alternatives:<br />

B1.2.1 alternative travel arrangements of equivalent<br />

or of very closely similar standard and price, if<br />

available; or<br />

B1.2.2 alternative travel arrangements of a lower<br />

standard together with a refund of the difference in<br />

price; or<br />

B1.2.3 cancel your travel arrangements with a full<br />

refund of all monies paid.<br />

In all 3 cases, compensation will be paid as detailed<br />

in clause D1 below unless the change occurs as a<br />

result of circumstances beyond our control where<br />

clauses E1 and H1 will apply.<br />

B2. IF WE CANCEL YOUR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS<br />

B2.1 In the unlikely event we need to cancel your<br />

travel arrangements we will tell you or your Travel<br />

Agent as soon as possible. However we will not<br />

cancel your travel arrangements less than 14 days<br />

before departure unless it is for a reason outside our<br />

control as provided in clause H1. If we have to cancel<br />

your travel arrangements we will provide you with<br />

three alternatives:<br />

B2.1.1 alternative travel arrangements of equivalent<br />

or of very closely similar standard and price, if<br />

available; or<br />

B2.1.2 alternative travel arrangements of a lower<br />

standard together with a refund of the difference in<br />

price; or<br />

B2.1.3 cancel your travel arrangements with a full<br />

refund of all monies paid.<br />

In all 3 cases, compensation will be paid as detailed<br />

in clause D1 below unless the change occurs as a<br />

128 vikingcruises.co.uk


BOOKING CONDITIONS<br />

result of circumstances beyond our control (in which<br />

case clauses E1 and H1 will apply) or we cancel as<br />

a result of your failure to pay your deposit or the<br />

balance or any other sum when due or where clause<br />

B2.2 applies.<br />

B2.2 We regret that some travel packages shown on<br />

our website or in our brochures can only be operated<br />

if a sufficient number of people book them. We<br />

will advise you at the time of booking if any travel<br />

arrangements are dependent on there being<br />

sufficient demand. If there is insufficient demand,<br />

we have the right to cancel the travel arrangements<br />

in question. If we have to do so, we promise we will<br />

tell you no later than 14 days prior to departure. In<br />

this situation, you will then have the choice of the<br />

options shown in clause B2.1 together with the<br />

option, if possible, of the same package departing<br />

on a different date. Where we cancel for lack of<br />

numbers in accordance with this clause B2.2, no<br />

compensation or other amounts (for example, the<br />

cost of any connected travel arrangements you have<br />

made independently) will be payable.<br />

B3. EXERCISE OF OPTIONS<br />

Where, following a Significant Change or a<br />

cancellation by us, the options set out in either<br />

clause B1.2 or B2.1 are offered, you are expected<br />

to advise us within 7 days of being notified which<br />

proposal you wish to accept. If you have not notified<br />

us within 7 days then we will write to you to obtain<br />

confirmation of your choice of the options available.<br />

If you fail to respond within a further 7 days, we<br />

will cancel your travel arrangements and refund all<br />

payments made by or on behalf of you.<br />

C. CHANGES AND CANCELLATION BY YOU<br />

C1. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING<br />

C1.1 If you want to change your travel arrangements<br />

in any way you or your Travel Agent must inform<br />

us in writing as soon as possible. We will try to help<br />

you, although we cannot guarantee that we will<br />

always be able to do this as changes are subject to<br />

availability at the time. Please note that typically<br />

changes to scheduled flight tickets are very restrictive<br />

and may not be possible without having to cancel<br />

the original flight and rebooking.<br />

C1.2 Where we can make a change, we will charge<br />

for any additional services, facilities, or other items<br />

changed, at the price which applies on the day the<br />

change is made. In addition, we reserve the right<br />

to apply an administration charge of £100 for each<br />

person on the booking together with any further<br />

costs we incur, for example with our suppliers, in<br />

making any change.<br />

C1.3 Any booking discount you may have received<br />

at the time your original booking was made may<br />

be altered or reduced whenever changes are made<br />

if such discount has since been altered, reduced or<br />

withdrawn.<br />

C1.4 If you have paid supplements for<br />

accommodation and the number of people in your<br />

accommodation changes, you may have to pay extra.<br />

In addition you may lose any free group places.<br />

C1.5 Any change to your departure date, airport,<br />

transport, destination, accommodation, or length of<br />

travel has to apply to all members of your booking.<br />

C1.6 You may not change travel arrangements<br />

chosen from our brochures or websites to special<br />

offer packages such as those featured in any<br />

promotional publications, without incurring<br />

cancellation charges. Such a change would<br />

necessitate the cancellation of your existing<br />

arrangements (and be subject to our cancellation<br />

charges shown in clause D1) and the re-booking of<br />

new arrangements at the price applying on the day<br />

the booking is made.<br />

C1.7 Any special offers, savings or promotions may<br />

not be combined with other special offers, savings<br />

or promotions.<br />

C1.8 It is not usually possible to alter or cancel any<br />

travel insurance you may have obtained and your<br />

premium will not be refunded, as cover under the<br />

policy will already have begun once the policy has<br />

been purchased.<br />

C2. IF YOU CANCEL YOUR BOOKING<br />

C2.1 If you wish to cancel all or part of your booking,<br />

you or your Travel Agent must write to us. If some or<br />

all of your party cancel their booking, we are entitled<br />

to treat your booking as cancelled in accordance<br />

with these Booking Conditions, we will levy a<br />

cancellation charge on the scale shown in the table<br />

set out in clause D1. These charges are based on the<br />

estimated cost of cancelling your arrangements and<br />

the expenses and losses we are likely to suffer if we<br />

cannot resell the package.<br />

C2.2 If the reason for your cancellation falls within<br />

your insurance cover, you may be able to claim<br />

a refund of your cancellation charges from the<br />

insurance company less any applicable excess.<br />

C2.3 If you or anyone included within your booking<br />

is unable to go for any reason or decides that he/she<br />

does not want to travel, you may transfer the whole<br />

booking or the place on the booking of the person(s)<br />

concerned to someone else/other people suggested<br />

by you and acceptable to us subject to the following:<br />

C2.3.1 You must write to us with full details of<br />

who cannot or does not want to travel and who<br />

you would like to go instead. We must receive this<br />

information at least 7 days before departure;<br />

C2.3.2 If the change can be made, you will have to<br />

pay any reasonable costs we incur or are asked to<br />

pay in order to make the change;<br />

C2.3.3 Anyone who travels in place of anyone who<br />

was originally due to travel must agree to these<br />

Booking Conditions and any other requirements<br />

which apply to the booking before the change can<br />

be finalised. If the full cost of the travel arrangements<br />

should have been paid when the change is<br />

requested but has not been, this must also be paid<br />

before the change can be finalised;<br />

C2.3.4 Scheduled airlines often do not allow any<br />

name changes within a certain period prior to<br />

departure and generally not at all after flight tickets<br />

have been issued. If you want or need to make a<br />

name change when an airline will not allow it, you<br />

will have to cancel the original flight (which means<br />

you will lose all the money you have paid for that<br />

flight) and pay the full cost of another flight (which<br />

may not be the original flight or at the same cost as<br />

the original flight as the airline is entitled to offer the<br />

cancelled flight to anyone on a waiting list for it).<br />

This is the airline’s decision and we have no control<br />

over it;<br />

C2.3.5 It will not normally be possible to transfer<br />

bookings or places on bookings within the period<br />

of 7 days immediately prior to departure without<br />

cancelling the original booking (and thereby<br />

incurring cancellation charges pursuant to clause D1)<br />

and rebooking.<br />

C2.4 The cost of your travel arrangements (provided<br />

that it includes a flight) includes an amount<br />

(currently £2.50 per person) which we are required<br />

to pay to the Air Travel Trust Fund as part of the ATOL<br />

Protection Contribution (“the APC Sum”). If you<br />

cancel your travel arrangements the APC Sum is not<br />

refundable in any circumstances.<br />

C2.5 If any person on the booking cancels and you<br />

cannot fill that person’s place, you may have to pay<br />

additional supplements for your accommodation.<br />

For example, you may have to pay single or underoccupancy<br />

supplements.<br />

C2.6 If you do cancel, you must still pay any<br />

amendment charges, which arose before the<br />

cancellation, and any deposits paid for any prebooked<br />

items or services.<br />

C2.7 You have the right to cancel your holiday before<br />

departure without paying a cancellation charge<br />

in the event of unavoidable and extraordinary<br />

circumstances occurring at your holiday destination<br />

or its immediate vicinity which significantly affects<br />

the performance of the holiday or which significantly<br />

affects transport arrangements to the destination.<br />

In these circumstances we shall provide you with a<br />

full refund of the monies you have paid but we will<br />

not be liable to pay you any compensation. For the<br />

purposes of this clause, examples of “unavoidable<br />

and extraordinary circumstances” include warfare,<br />

acts of terrorism, significant risks to human health<br />

such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel<br />

destination or natural disasters such as floods,<br />

earthquakes or weather conditions which make it<br />

impossible to travel safely to your destination.<br />

D2. DENIED BOARDING REGULATIONS &<br />

TRANSPORTATION DELAYS<br />

D2.1 If any flight you have booked is cancelled<br />

or delayed, your flight ticket is downgraded or<br />

boarding is denied by your airline in circumstances<br />

which would entitle you to claim compensation<br />

against the airline under EC Regulation No 261/2004<br />

– the Denied Boarding Regulations 2004, you must<br />

pursue the airline for the compensation due to you.<br />

All sums you receive or are entitled to receive from<br />

the airline concerned by virtue of these Regulations<br />

Call a <strong>Viking</strong> Expert on 020 8780 7900 or see your Travel Agent 129


BOOKING CONDITIONS<br />

represent the full amount of your entitlement<br />

to compensation or any other payment arising<br />

from such cancellation, delay, downgrading or<br />

denied boarding. The fact a delay may entitle<br />

you to cancel your flight does not automatically<br />

entitle you to cancel any other arrangements even<br />

where those arrangements have been made in<br />

conjunction with your flight. We have no liability<br />

to make any payment to you in relation to the<br />

Denied Boarding Regulations or in respect of any<br />

flight cancellation or delay, downgrading of any<br />

flight ticket or denial of any boarding as the full<br />

amount of your entitlement to any compensation<br />

or other payment (as dealt with above) is covered<br />

by the airline’s obligations under the Denied<br />

Boarding Regulations. If your airline does not<br />

comply with these rules you should complain to<br />

the Civil Aviation Authority on 0330 022 1500<br />

www.caa.co.uk.<br />

D2.2 Unfortunately, flight or other transport<br />

delays sometimes occur. Depending on the length<br />

of the delay and surrounding circumstances, the<br />

carrier concerned should provide refreshments<br />

when and where appropriate. We are generally<br />

not in a position to provide any assistance in the<br />

event of flight or other transportation delays and<br />

cannot accept any liability except where expressly<br />

stated in these Booking Conditions or as otherwise<br />

provided in the Package Travel and Linked Travel<br />

Arrangements Regulations 2018.<br />

D3. RIGHTS UNDER PACKAGE TRAVEL AND LINKED<br />

TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS REGULATIONS 2018<br />

D3.1 In accordance with the Regulations, where<br />

it is impossible for you to return to your departure<br />

point on the return date of your “package”<br />

(as defined in the said Regulations) due to<br />

“unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances”,<br />

we shall provide you with the necessary<br />

accommodation for a period not exceeding<br />

3 nights per person. Where possible, this<br />

accommodation shall be of comparable standard<br />

to the accommodation booked by you under the<br />

package. For the purposes of this clause, examples<br />

of “unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances”<br />

include warfare, acts of terrorism, significant<br />

risks to human health such as the outbreak of<br />

serious disease at the travel destination or natural<br />

disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather<br />

conditions which make it impossible to travel<br />

safely to the destination.<br />

D3.2 The limitation of costs for 3 nights<br />

accommodation referred to above does not apply<br />

to persons with reduced mobility as defined<br />

by Article 2 of Regulation (EC) 1107/2006,<br />

concerning the rights of disabled persons and<br />

persons with reduced mobility when travelling<br />

by air and any other person accompanying them<br />

and pregnant women as well as persons in need<br />

of specific medical assistance, provided you have<br />

notified us of their needs at least 48 hours prior to<br />

start of the package.<br />

E. LIMITATION OF OUR LIABILITY TO YOU<br />

E1. If the contract we have with you is not<br />

performed or is improperly performed by us<br />

or our suppliers we will pay you appropriate<br />

compensation if this has affected the enjoyment of<br />

your travel arrangements. However we will<br />

not be liable (and clause H1 will apply) where<br />

any failure in the performance of the contract is<br />

due to:<br />

E1.1 you; or<br />

E1.2 a third party unconnected with the provision<br />

of the travel arrangements and where the failure is<br />

unforeseeable or unavoidable; or<br />

E1.3 unusual and unforeseeable circumstances<br />

beyond our control, the consequences of which<br />

could not have been avoided even if all due care<br />

had been exercised; or<br />

E1.4 an event which we or our suppliers, even with<br />

all due care, could not foresee or forestall.<br />

E2. In addition to the provisions of clause H1, our<br />

liability, except in cases involving death, injury or<br />

illness, shall be limited to a maximum of 3 times<br />

the cost of your travel arrangements.<br />

E3. Should you or any member of your party<br />

suffer illness, personal injury or death attributable<br />

to a third party unconnected with the provision<br />

of the services, or as a result of failures due<br />

to unusual and unforeseeable circumstances<br />

beyond our control, the consequences of which<br />

could not have been avoided even if all due care<br />

had been exercised, or an event which we or<br />

our suppliers, even with all due care, could not<br />

foresee or forestall, we will offer you such advice,<br />

guidance and assistance as is reasonable in the<br />

circumstances.<br />

E4. Our liability will also be limited in accordance<br />

with and/or in an identical manner to:<br />

E4.1 the contractual terms of the companies<br />

that provide the transportation for your travel<br />

arrangements which are incorporated into and<br />

form part of your contract with us; and<br />

E4.2 any relevant international convention, for<br />

example the Montreal Convention in respect of<br />

travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of<br />

travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of<br />

travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect<br />

of the provision of accommodation, which limit<br />

the amount of compensation that you can<br />

claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and<br />

loss, damage and delay to luggage which are<br />

incorporated into and form part of your contract<br />

with us and we are to be regarded as having all<br />

the benefit of any limitation of compensation<br />

contained in these or any other such conventions.<br />

E5. Unless otherwise expressly indicated by us in<br />

writing, excursions or other tours that you may<br />

choose to book or pay for whilst you are away are<br />

not part of the travel arrangements provided by us.<br />

For any excursion or other tour that you book, your<br />

contract will be with the operator of the excursion<br />

or tour and not with us. We are not responsible<br />

for the provision of the excursion or tour or for<br />

anything that happens during the course of its<br />

provision by the operator. Where an excursion or<br />

other tour is booked through us no refund will be<br />

available in the event of you subsequently being<br />

unable or choosing not to take part. This clause<br />

E5 applies even where a <strong>Viking</strong> representative<br />

accompanies the tour or excursion.<br />

E6. Where you have booked a “Cruise Only”<br />

holiday, we cannot accept any liability for the<br />

costs of flights or other travel arrangements in the<br />

event of changes being made to the scheduled<br />

departure or arrival times or locations of the<br />

cruise vessel.<br />

E7. The provisions of clauses E1 to E6 inclusive<br />

are in addition to any other limitation of liability<br />

contained in these Booking Conditions.<br />

E8. Nothing in these Booking Conditions affect<br />

any statutory rights that you may have under the<br />

relevant jurisdiction applicable pursuant to clause<br />

H.8 (including any rights under the Package<br />

Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements<br />

Regulations 2018)<br />

F: YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES<br />

F1. SPECIAL REQUESTS<br />

If you have a special request, we will do our best<br />

to help, but we cannot guarantee it except as<br />

set out below. Please advise your Travel Agent or<br />

us (if booking direct) of your request at the time<br />

of booking and make sure that we are given as<br />

much detail as possible. If your special request<br />

is vital to your travel arrangements, it must be<br />

specifically agreed with us before or at the time<br />

you book. We promise to comply with any special<br />

request which we have specifically agreed and<br />

confirmed in writing. General confirmation<br />

that a special request has been noted or passed<br />

on to the supplier or the inclusion of a special<br />

request on your Confirmation Invoice or on the<br />

acknowledgement of your booking or any other<br />

documentation is not confirmation that the<br />

request will be met. Unless and until specifically<br />

confirmed in writing all special requests are subject<br />

to availability. If any additional cost is applicable,<br />

it will either be invoiced to you prior to your<br />

departure or should be paid for locally.<br />

F2. YOUR DOCUMENTATION<br />

F2.1 You are responsible for ensuring that you<br />

and all other persons included in the booking<br />

satisfy all passport, visa, travel insurance and<br />

health certificate requirements and we accept<br />

no responsibility for any refusal of travel or<br />

entry into any destination or for any liabilities,<br />

losses, delays or expenses incurred through any<br />

irregularity in such documentation. If you have<br />

any queries with regard to documentation and<br />

insurance requirements you must raise them with<br />

us or your Travel Agent well in advance of travel<br />

commencing. In the event we are asked to re-issue<br />

tickets that have been lost, destroyed or stolen and<br />

we agree to do so, any charges incurred as a result<br />

of this will be payable by you.<br />

F2.2 Many of the airlines that provide the flight<br />

element of the arrangements we sell impose<br />

fines and costs on us if any passengers who have<br />

booked with us do not have the necessary travel<br />

or other documents for the countries they are<br />

visiting or passing through, even where this occurs<br />

through no fault of ours. In this situation we have<br />

no choice but to pass on to you all fines, costs,<br />

surcharges, financial penalties and other sums of<br />

any description which are imposed on or incurred<br />

by us. You will be responsible for reimbursing us<br />

accordingly in full.<br />

F3. HEALTH PRECAUTIONS, PREGNANCY,<br />

DISABILITIES, & FCO ADVICE<br />

F3.1 You are solely responsible for checking<br />

what vaccinations and other health precautions<br />

are required or are advisable for your chosen<br />

destination and journey with your doctor in good<br />

time before departure. You and each member<br />

of your group are responsible for ensuring that<br />

you have had all relevant vaccinations and are<br />

otherwise fit to travel. If you have any doubts or<br />

require any information then you must contact<br />

well in advance of travel commencing. Please note<br />

that whilst we will endeavour to assist anyone<br />

who becomes ill whilst on board any vessel, any<br />

health care facilities are limited and we cannot be<br />

expected to provide any inoculations or specialist<br />

health care whilst on board.<br />

F3.2 Individual airline policies differ in respect<br />

of air travel when pregnant. In addition, given<br />

the nature of our ocean cruises and the facilities<br />

available on board, we do not allow passengers<br />

to embark the vessel where they are more than<br />

six months pregnant. If you or any member of<br />

130<br />

vikingcruises.co.uk


BOOKING CONDITIONS<br />

your group is or becomes pregnant prior to the<br />

start of your travel arrangements, then you must<br />

inform us immediately so that we can advise<br />

whether or not travel will be possible and, if so,<br />

what arrangements may need to be put in place<br />

and/or what medical confirmation of fitness to<br />

travel may be required. We cannot be responsible<br />

for any losses suffered where we are not informed<br />

of any pregnancy well in advance of departure<br />

and/or if any airline refuses to accept you or any<br />

member of your party as a passenger for reasons<br />

of pregnancy.<br />

F3.3 You must provide us with full details of<br />

any existing dietary requirements, medical<br />

problem or disability or other special needs<br />

(including impaired mobility or the need to use<br />

any wheelchair, mobility scooter or walking<br />

frame) that may affect your travel arrangements<br />

(including, in particular, any accommodation<br />

requirements) at the time of booking. If in<br />

our reasonable opinion, your chosen travel<br />

arrangements are not suitable for your medical<br />

problem or disability or other special need or you<br />

are not travelling with someone who can provide<br />

all assistance you may reasonably require, we have<br />

the right to refuse to accept the booking. If you<br />

do not give us full details of your medical problem<br />

or disability or other special need at the time of<br />

booking, we can also cancel the booking when we<br />

find out the full details if in our reasonable opinion<br />

the travel arrangements are not suitable or you are<br />

not travelling with someone who can provide all<br />

assistance reasonably required. If we cancel in this<br />

situation, cancellation charges as set out in clause<br />

D1 must be paid by the person concerned. For<br />

further information please see our advice section<br />

for Passengers with Health Issues, Disabilities,<br />

Impaired Mobility or Other Special Needs at the<br />

end of these Booking Conditions and/or contact<br />

our Guest Services team on 020 8780 7900.<br />

F3.4 We reserve the right to deny embarkation or<br />

remove any person from a vessel or optional shore<br />

excursion who in our reasonable opinion or in the<br />

opinion of the vessel’s Master is not fit to travel,<br />

and/or has not received written confirmation from<br />

us that reasonable adjustments can be made to<br />

cater for any particular requirements. In such cases,<br />

all related expenses, (including those incurred<br />

by the relevant person, or anyone travelling with<br />

him or her, in returning home) will be borne by<br />

the relevant passengers and they shall not be<br />

entitled to any refund or any other compensation<br />

whatsoever and we shall have no further liability<br />

to them. In addition, we may disembark at any<br />

port any passenger who may be suffering from<br />

any contagious or infectious disease or whose<br />

presence, in the opinion of the vessel Master,<br />

may be detrimental to the comfort or safety of<br />

other passengers or the crew, or who, in the<br />

vessel Master’s opinion, might be excluded from<br />

landing at any destination by Immigration or other<br />

Governmental Authorities.<br />

F3.5 The Foreign and Commonwealth Office<br />

(“FCO”) produces a wide range of material about<br />

overseas countries including details of political<br />

unrest, crime and health issues. If you have any<br />

particular concerns then you should refer to the<br />

FCO website at www.fco.gov.uk.<br />

F4. INSURANCE<br />

F4.1 You must take out insurance suitable for your<br />

needs before you travel. We cannot be held<br />

responsible for any costs you incur as a result of<br />

failing to do so.<br />

F4.2 If you participate in sports and activities whilst<br />

travelling that have been organised and arranged<br />

independently of us, it should be understood that<br />

participation is at the individual’s own risk and it is<br />

your responsibility to obtain the relevant insurance.<br />

F5. BEHAVIOUR<br />

F5.1 You must be responsible for the behaviour<br />

of yourself and your party and must at all times<br />

ensure that you and your party comply with<br />

the vessel’s rules and regulations, any orders<br />

and directions of the vessel’s Master, officers<br />

and medical staff (as applicable) and that your<br />

conduct will not impair the safety of the vessel or<br />

jeopardise or inconvenience other passengers.<br />

We can refuse to accept you as a customer or<br />

refuse to continue dealing with you and/or any<br />

other member of your party by terminating your<br />

travel arrangements if behaviour is, or is likely to<br />

be, in our reasonable opinion, or in the opinion of<br />

any airline pilot, vessel Master or other person in<br />

authority, disruptive, upsetting or dangerous to<br />

yourself or anyone else or if you or any member<br />

of your party have caused or are likely to cause<br />

damage to property. We will not pay any refund,<br />

compensation or other sum whatsoever or any<br />

costs or expenses incurred by you if we have to<br />

terminate your travel arrangements due to such<br />

unacceptable behaviour. In this situation we will<br />

then have no further responsibility for you or<br />

any other member of your party (including any<br />

return travel arrangements). If your unacceptable<br />

behaviour means you are not allowed to board<br />

your outward flight we will treat your booking as<br />

cancelled from that moment and you will have to<br />

pay full cancellation charges (see clause D1).<br />

F5.2 With regard to any flights and/or cruises<br />

that form part of your travel arrangements the<br />

airline captain or vessel Master (as applicable) has<br />

authority over the aircraft/vessel and passengers<br />

at all times when they are boarding or on board.<br />

He/she may prevent you or any member of your<br />

party from travelling if you or such member are<br />

considered unfit to do so, or if you or such member<br />

pose a danger to the aircraft/vessel or passengers.<br />

In such circumstances we shall seek compensation<br />

from you for any losses caused by your behaviour<br />

or by the behaviour of any member of your party<br />

(e.g. the cost of diverting an aircraft or vessel).<br />

Disruption on board an aircraft or vessel is a<br />

criminal offence, and you may be prosecuted. If<br />

you are refused carriage on an aircraft because of<br />

your disruptive behaviour, or you are under the<br />

influence of alcohol or drugs, your airline may<br />

pass on your details and the date of the refusal of<br />

carriage to other airlines for their information. This<br />

in turn may make it difficult for you or others in<br />

your party to book other airline tickets.<br />

F6. ASSISTANCE IF YOU GET INTO DIFFICULTIES<br />

If you or any member of your party suffers during<br />

the course of your holiday any difficulty as a<br />

result of any activity which does or does not form<br />

part of your contracted travel arrangements, we<br />

will offer you prompt assistance without undue<br />

delay. Such assistance may include assisting you<br />

in making communications and helping you find<br />

alternative travel arrangements. If the difficulty is<br />

caused intentionally by you or as a result of your<br />

negligence, we may charge a reasonable fee for<br />

that assistance which will not exceed the actual<br />

cost incurred by us. All assistance (financial or<br />

otherwise) is subject to our reasonable discretion<br />

and subject to you notifying us promptly of your<br />

need. If you are entitled to have any costs and<br />

expenses arising from such an incident met by or<br />

from an insurance policy or if you recover any costs<br />

and expenses relating to the incident from a third<br />

party you must repay us for costs and expenses we<br />

have incurred in assisting you.<br />

F7. ALCOHOL POLICY<br />

Please note that you must be aged 21 or over in<br />

order to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages<br />

whilst on board our vessels. Silver Spirit packages<br />

(or similar arrangements for the supply of alcohol<br />

on board) can only be purchased where both<br />

occupants of the relevant cabin or stateroom<br />

are over the age of 21 and each occupant must<br />

purchase the relevant package for the full duration<br />

of the cruise. Proof of age may be required at<br />

any time and breach of this policy may result in<br />

persons involved (whether in the purchase, supply<br />

or consumption) being removed from the vessel<br />

pursuant to the provisions of clause F5.<br />

G: IF YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT<br />

G1. If you have cause for complaint whilst<br />

travelling, you must bring it to the attention of the<br />

<strong>Viking</strong> representative on board the cruise vessel<br />

or at your hotel. If your complaint is not resolved<br />

locally, please follow this up within 28 days of<br />

your return home by writing to our Guest Services<br />

team at <strong>Viking</strong>, Nelsons House, 83 Wimbledon<br />

Park Side London SW19 5LP or by email to<br />

Customerservices@vikingcruises.com giving<br />

your booking reference and all other relevant<br />

information. Please keep your letter/email concise<br />

and to the point. This will assist us to quickly<br />

identify your concerns and speed up our response<br />

to you. It is strongly recommended that you<br />

communicate any complaint to the supplier of the<br />

services in question as well as to our representative<br />

without delay and complete a report whilst on<br />

board or at the relevant hotel. If you fail to follow<br />

this simple procedure we will have been deprived<br />

of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your<br />

complaint whilst you are on board and this may<br />

affect your rights under this contract.<br />

G2. We are a member of ABTA, membership<br />

number V924X and are obliged to maintain a high<br />

standard of service by ABTA’s Code of Conduct. We<br />

certainly hope that we can settle any complaints<br />

amicably. However, should this prove not to be<br />

the case you may refer any dispute to arbitration<br />

through ABTA’s arbitration scheme. The scheme<br />

provides for a simple and inexpensive method of<br />

arbitration on documents alone with restricted<br />

liability for you in respect of costs. The scheme is<br />

subject to certain financial limits on the amount<br />

that can be claimed as determined from time to<br />

time by ABTA. Please note that the scheme does<br />

not apply to claims which are solely in respect of<br />

physical injury or illness or their consequences,<br />

although claims which include an element of<br />

minor injury or illness can be considered subject<br />

to a limit as set from time to time by ABTA on the<br />

amount the arbitrator can award per person, in<br />

respect of this element.<br />

G3. Any application for arbitration under clause<br />

G2, together with any related statement of<br />

claim, must be received by ABTA within eighteen<br />

months of the date of return. Outside this time<br />

limit arbitration under the scheme may still be<br />

available if we agree, but the ABTA Code does<br />

not require such agreement. For injury and illness<br />

claims, you may like to use the ABTA/ Chartered<br />

Institute of Arbitrators Mediation Procedure. This<br />

is a voluntary scheme and requires us to agree<br />

for mediation to go ahead. The aim is to help you<br />

resolve your dispute in a quick and cost effective<br />

way. Details are available on request or from<br />

www.abta.com.<br />

BOOKING CONDITIONS<br />

H. MISCELLANEOUS<br />

H1. CHANGES DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND<br />

OUR CONTROL<br />

We will not be liable to pay any compensation<br />

if we are forced to cancel or in any way change<br />

your travel arrangements as a result of unusual or<br />

unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control,<br />

the consequences of which could not have been<br />

avoided even with all due care. These include<br />

unavoidable technical problems with transport,<br />

changes imposed by rescheduling or cancellation<br />

of flights by an airline or main charterer, the<br />

alteration of the airline or aircraft type, changes<br />

imposed by rescheduling or cancellation of rail<br />

travel by the relevant operator, war or threat of<br />

war, civil strife, industrial disputes, natural disaster,<br />

adverse weather, epidemic or terrorist activity.<br />

H2. YOUR FINANCIAL PROTECTION<br />

H2.1 When you buy an ATOL protected flight<br />

or flight inclusive holiday from us you will<br />

receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists the flight<br />

accommodation car hire and/or other services<br />

that are financially protected, where you can get<br />

information on what this means for you and who<br />

to contact if things go wrong.<br />

H2.2 We, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL<br />

certificate, will provide you with the services listed<br />

on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative).<br />

In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier<br />

are able to do so due to reasons of insolvency, an<br />

alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the<br />

services you have bought, or a suitable alternative<br />

(at no extra cost to you). You agree to accept<br />

that in those circumstances, the alternative ATOL<br />

holder will perform those obligations and you<br />

agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by<br />

you under your contract to that alternative ATOL<br />

holder. However you also agree that in some cases<br />

it will not be possible to appoint an alternative<br />

ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled<br />

to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your<br />

credit card issuer where applicable).<br />

H2.3 If we, or the suppliers identified on your<br />

ATOL certificate, are unable to provide the services<br />

listed (or a suitable alternative, through an<br />

alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons<br />

of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust<br />

may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on)<br />

you under the ATOL scheme. You agree that in<br />

return for such a payment or benefit you assign<br />

absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you<br />

have or may have arising out of or relating to the<br />

non-provision of the services, including any claim<br />

against us, the travel agent (or your credit card<br />

issuer where applicable). You also agree that any<br />

such claims may be re-assigned to another body,<br />

if that other body has paid sums you have claimed<br />

under the ATOL scheme.<br />

collected on condition that we have your positive<br />

consent. If you do not agree to our use of your<br />

arrangements for you and ensure that you do not<br />

return with the group immediately. For further<br />

any event not later than 20 days before the start<br />

of the package. If the price increase exceeds 8%<br />

of the price of the package, the traveller may<br />

the right to a price increase, the traveller has a<br />

right to a price reduction if there is a decrease in<br />

the relevant costs.<br />

ADVICE FOR PASSENGERS WITH HEALTH ISSUE,<br />

DISABILITIES, IMPAIRED MOBILITY OR OTHER<br />

SPECIAL NEEDS<br />

At <strong>Viking</strong> we want all our passengers to have a<br />

safe and enjoyable cruise. Whilst we will always<br />

look to make reasonable adjustments for those<br />

with specific dietary requirements, health issues,<br />

disabilities, impaired mobility or other special<br />

needs that may affect their fitness to travel, or<br />

ability to make full use of our onboard facilities<br />

or undertake shore excursions, we are reliant on<br />

passengers informing us well in advance of any<br />

such matters.<br />

We must be provided with full details of any such<br />

issues, including details of those travelling with the<br />

relevant passenger who can provide assistance,<br />

prior to booking so that we can advise the<br />

relevant passenger whether or not the relevant<br />

cruise will be suitable and/or whether reasonable<br />

adjustments can be made.<br />

Where such issues arise after your booking has<br />

been made we must be advised immediately<br />

so that we can establish whether or not any<br />

reasonable adjustments are required and can be<br />

made such that the relevant booking can proceed.<br />

Please note we cannot guarantee that we will<br />

always be able to accommodate any required<br />

adjustments as any adjustments will be dependent<br />

on the particular cruise vessel and the proposed<br />

destinations. Passengers need to be aware that<br />

there are inherent risks associated with travelling<br />

aboard ships that are unique to cruise tour travel.<br />

For people who are ill, or have a disability or<br />

impairment, the risks can be more significant.<br />

Guests must normally be able to independently<br />

move around the ship in case of an emergency,<br />

rough seas, deal with the lack of immediate access<br />

to medical services in certain parts of the world,<br />

and acknowledge that access to some areas of the<br />

ship and ports of call may be limited or impossible.<br />

We must reserve the right to determine whether<br />

a guest is fit to travel, and to deny boarding or<br />

require disembarkation in the event that a guest<br />

represents a risk to themselves or to the safety and<br />

wellbeing of those on board the ship. The decision<br />

of the ship’s Master shall be final in respect of<br />

such decisions.<br />

Accessibility and Special Needs<br />

Where passengers have any mobility or other<br />

special needs please contact our Guest Services<br />

team on 020 8780 7900. We may require the<br />

completion of a medical or accessibility form by<br />

you and/or your doctor to establish the full extent<br />

of your likely needs and the extent to which you<br />

may require medical or other assistance during<br />

the cruise.<br />

If a passenger requires the use of a wheelchair or<br />

other mobility equipment, normally this must not<br />

exceed 22” in width. Passenger must bring and be<br />

solely responsible for all necessary items related to<br />

any medical condition or mobility challenge.<br />

Airport, Port & Excursion Accessibility<br />

and Limitation<br />

Some ports of call may have physical conditions<br />

which may preclude certain passengers from going<br />

ashore. Additionally, for cruise tours in China, on<br />

the Mekong <strong>River</strong>, in Egypt, in Ukraine and for<br />

other destinations not specifically noted, certain<br />

additional conditions, restrictions and limitations<br />

exist on board, at the ports, during excursions and<br />

on land that are beyond <strong>Viking</strong>’s control.<br />

Ship and airport access in these and other regions,<br />

including lack of wheelchair, walker or scooter<br />

accessibility, extended periods of standing and<br />

steps, are inherently present in tours that may not<br />

be appropriate for guests with certain medical<br />

conditions and/or physical impairments.<br />

Airports in certain regions typically do not have<br />

ramps or elevators.<br />

Excursions sometimes visit ancient sites with<br />

uneven terrain and stairs and may include<br />

extended periods of walking over uneven surfaces.<br />

Guests using wheelchairs, scooters, walkers,<br />

crutches, or other mobility aids or who may need<br />

physical assistance throughout the trip should<br />

consider these needs when making a booking<br />

as our onboard personnel are not required to<br />

perform personal tasks or assist with eating,<br />

dressing, toileting, lifting or pushing a wheelchair.<br />

Motorized scooters typically cannot be taken on<br />

board planes in certain regions because authorities<br />

such as the China Aviation Administration forbid<br />

any battery of capacity greater than 160Wh<br />

(most scooter batteries) on board an aircraft.<br />

Additionally, lithium batteries cannot be placed<br />

in checked baggage and must be hand-carried<br />

as on board carry-on. All batteries must have the<br />

capacity clearly printed on the outside or they will<br />

not be allowed to be on board. To calculate your<br />

battery capacity if it is only marked in mAh, divide<br />

the mAh number by 1000 and multiply by 3.7. For<br />

example, a capacity of 10400mAh./1000=10.4Ah×<br />

3.7v=28.48 Wh (under the limit of 160Wh).<br />

Ship Access<br />

Due to the nature of some ships (including cabin<br />

sizes), certain cruise tours are not appropriate<br />

for travellers who use wheelchairs, walkers or<br />

scooters.<br />

To embark/disembark from the ship, guests may<br />

have to walk down/up steps and ramps without a<br />

walker or wheelchair, as gangways/ramps may not<br />

be wide enough to accommodate these items.<br />

Not all ships have elevators, and some have splitlevel<br />

decks and/or significant thresholds. Please<br />

note that personnel are not required to lift guests<br />

or push wheelchairs.<br />

Potential guests with any mobility or other<br />

special needs should review their proposed ship’s<br />

layout on our website and also obtain a copy of<br />

our Safety Policy Statement and consider their<br />

needs when making a booking.<br />

Denial of Embarkation and Right to<br />

Require Removal<br />

Please note that in accordance with our<br />

Booking Conditions, we reserve the right to<br />

deny embarkation or remove any person from<br />

a ship or optional shore excursion who in our<br />

reasonable opinion or in the opinion of the<br />

ship’s Master is not fit to travel and/or has not<br />

received written confirmation from us that<br />

reasonable adjustments can be made to cater<br />

for any particular accessibility requirements.<br />

In such cases, all related expenses, (including<br />

those incurred whether by the relevant person<br />

or anyone travelling with him or her in returning<br />

home) will be borne by the relevant passengers<br />

and they shall not be entitled to any refund or<br />

any other compensation whatsoever and we<br />

shall have no further liability to them.<br />

OUR TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ABROAD<br />

As stated above, in some cases We will transfer Your<br />

personal data to a location that is outside the United<br />

Kingdom, and even outside the European Economic Area.<br />

The European Commission decides, for the purposes<br />

of Data Protection Legislation, whether or not states<br />

outside the European Economic Area have “adequate”<br />

safeguards for personal data.<br />

• In the case of the United States, it is not currently<br />

considered to provide adequate safeguards, although<br />

its Government operates Privacy Shield and members<br />

of that scheme are considered to have “adequate”<br />

safeguards.<br />

• If Your intended cruise destination(s) is/are outside<br />

the European Economic Area, the relevant state(s)<br />

may not provide adequate safeguards.<br />

We can lawfully make necessary transfers of your<br />

personal data to these overseas locations if we have<br />

your explicit consent. If we ask you for your explicit<br />

consent, it may be the case that we will be unable to<br />

make the necessary transfer(s) of your personal data<br />

to these overseas locations unless we obtain your<br />

consent. This may impact on Our ability to process<br />

Your personal data using Our electronic systems, and/<br />

or it may result in you being denied entry to your<br />

intended cruise destination(s).<br />
