NurseCon at Sea Event Terms & Conditions

ALL BILLING AND TRAVEL SERVICES PROVIDED BY OUR LICENSED TRAVEL AGENT DESTINATIONS INC.

These Participation and Reservation Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) constitute an Agreement between the Parties.  The Parties are:

  • You (“You” or “you” or “Passenger” or “passenger”), on the one hand, and 
  • Nursecon At Sea, LLC, (“NurseCon At Sea”) on the other hand, where the NurseCon At Sea, LLC puts on that certain cruise called NurseCon At Sea (“Event”) which is scheduled to take place April 25, 2022 to April 29, 2022 on Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas (“Ship” “Vessel” or “Cruise Ship”) operated by Royal Caribbean International (“Royal Caribbean” or “Cruise Line”).

The Terms apply to all passengers, participants, guests, staff (hereinafter “you,” “your,” “Participant,” “Passenger” and any derivation thereof) and others attending the Event, including but not limited to anyone purchasing a reservation (“Reservation”) for the Event.  By obtaining your Reservation you acknowledge and agree to the Terms, now and as they may change from time-to-time. 

You expressly acknowledge and agree that (a) you are purchasing a ticket/package for the Event from travel agent Destinations, Inc., and not from any other party, including but not limited to NurseCon At Sea, LLC; and (b) NurseCon At Sea, LLC is not responsible or liable to you for any claims arising from or related to the Event in any manner whatsoever. 

Your decision to pay a deposit to book a cabin/purchase a Reservation and/or attend the Event constitutes your acknowledgment of and consent to all of the Terms, including the limitations of liability presented herein. Any and all disputes and claims whatsoever related to, or involving Nursecon At Sea and/or the Event shall be governed by Florida law and the venue for any litigation shall be in Seminole County, Florida. 

NurseCon At Sea Reservations are strictly nonrefundable.  NurseCon At Sea recommends that you purchase trip insurance to cover any unfortunate circumstances which may arise that would cause you to have to cancel, expose you to charges which may be unanticipated, or seek a refund for the Event.  Travel insurance is a relatively small investment for the protection it provides, and is recommended to all participants, event staff, and guests of any kind. 

Please note that the Terms may change from time-to-time, particularly as CDC guidelines and the Ship’s and Cruise Line’s own terms and conditions change due to best health practices and other matters.  Nursecon At Sea may advise you of recent updates and changes to the Terms, but it is each Participant’s responsibility to keep up to date with the Terms as they change from time-to-time. 

It is each Participant’s responsibility and obligation to keep his/her contact information (email address, cell phone number, street address, etc.) up-to-date with NurseCon At Sea.  There may be important or even URGENT announcements and information regarding your account or other matters, and if NurseCon At Sea cannot reach you, you will not have the benefit of such knowledge.  The information may include account or other information that directly affects your reservation status or another crucial fact, and NurseCon At Sea hereby disclaims responsibility for delivering such information when a Participant’s account information is incomplete or inaccurate. 

With the exception of its cancelation and refund policies, the rules, regulations and policies of the Cruise Line govern your boarding/embarkation upon the Ship, your stay on the Ship, your attendance at the Event, your departure/disembarkation from the Ship, your passage through any Port, and other crucial factors.  To the extent that any of the Cruise Line’s rules, regulations and policies differ from those of Nursecon At Sea and/or the Terms, the Cruise Line’s rules, regulations and policies will supersede, with the exception of cancelation and refund policies.  It is each Participant’s responsibility to know and adhere to Nursecon At Sea’s and the Cruise Line’s rules, regulations and policies, as they may change from time-to-time.  Visit this link https://www.royalcaribbean.com/booked for the most up-to-date version of the Cruise Line’s rules, regulations and policies, and advice for cruisers. 

Licensed NurseCon At Sea Reservations. NurseCon At Sea and its agents and representatives are the sole creators, sellers and distributors of Nursecon At Sea Reservations. Any Reservation(s) not created by and legally acquired from Nursecon At Sea or its authorized agents or representatives will be considered fraudulent and invalid, and subject to revocation with no refund available to any party. NurseCon At Sea reserves the right to pursue any and all legal action available against any person or entity involved in the actual or attempted creation, dissemination or use of an unauthorized Reservation. ALL SALES OF TRAVEL AND TRAVEL RELATED SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY LICENSED TRAVEL AGENT DESTINATIONS, INC. (“DESTINATIONS”). ALL PAYMENT PROCESSING FOR NURSECON AT SEA RESERVATIONS AND OTHER TRAVEL RELATED SERVICES IS DONE BY DESTINATIONS, INC. 

Payment Plan Terms. NurseCon At Sea Payment Plans may be offered to assist Participants with the cost of Reservations. Payment Terms shall be displayed and agreed upon during the Reservation process. Failure to make a scheduled payment within 45 days of due date will result in immediate revocation and cancellation of Reservation without refund.  NurseCon At Sea shall then have the right to resell such Reservation and/or accommodation, with the original payment therefor converting in its entirety to an administrative fee.  All Reservations MUST be paid in full no later than 60 days prior to Event start date.  Reservations that are past due within 60 days of Event start date will be cancelled without refund.  If Participant is paying for Nursecon At Sea via a payment plan, and any given payment, charge, debit or other payment is declined, charged back, or returned with not sufficient funds, such Participant’s account will be subject to a $50.00 administrative fee for each occurrence.  In the event of imposition of such fee, subsequent payments received will be applied first to cover the fee, and then the remaining amount of the payment will be applied to the reservation balance. 

All participants will be subject to an additional charge of $250 for taxes, prepaid shipboard gratuities and fees.  This fee, like all other fees described herein, is nonrefundable. 

Participant authorizes Nursecon At Sea to charge the credit/debit card indicated, or to debit directly from the bank account indicated according to the terms outlined in the Terms and elsewhere.  If any given due payment falls on a weekend or holiday and cannot therefore be processed by Destinations or its bank or credit card vendor(s), Participant understands, agrees and consents that any given payment may be executed on the next business day.  This authorization will remain active and in effect until and unless Participant cancels it in writing.  Participant agrees to notify NurseCon At Sea of any changes in Participant’s account information or of termination of this authorization at least 15 days prior to the next charging/debit date.  Participant certifies that s/he is an authorized user of the billing method which s/he has chosen, and that s/he will not dispute the scheduled payments provided that the transactions correspond to the terms to which s/he has agreed.  Participant is aware that there is a $50.00 administrative fee for returned, bounced or disputed charges, and that all fees charged or processed by Destinations and/or paid to NurseCon At Sea for Participant’s Reservation are strictly nonrefundable.

Financial Responsibility. NurseCon At Sea will not split financial responsibility among multiple Participants. 

Transferring Reservation(s).  NurseCon At Sea Reservations are issued to and used by only the Participant(s) named in the reservation. Reservations are non-transferable without the express written permission of Nursecon At Sea. If such permission is granted, every reservation transfer will be subject to a $150.00 transfer fee.  Substitutions/Transfers may be requested at any time up to forty-five (45) days prior to sailing and will be granted at the sole discretion of  Nursecon At Sea.

NurseCon At Sea may, in its sole discretion and at any time determined by Nursecon At Sea, cancel, revoke, or refuse from any individual or entity the following: Reservations, registrations, sponsorship, association, purchases, and/or travel reservations made through Nursecon At Sea and/or Destinations. Neither Nursecon At Sea nor Destinations will not be responsible for any penalty, fee, loss, or expense that might result from such action.

  • Use of a Reservation(s) by anyone other than the authorized individual will result in revocation of the Reservation(s) without refund.
  • Failure to meet the guidelines of the Cruise Line, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, any government’s officials, or standard sailing requirements may result in the revocation of your Reservation without refund. Neither Nursecon At Sea nor Destinations will issue refunds for failing to meet these requirements under any circumstance.
  • NurseCon At Sea and Destinations reserve the right to cancel or postpone the Event and/or any individual Reservation(s) at any time for any reason. Neither Nursecon At Sea and Destinations will issue refunds for Events and/or Reservations that are cancelled or postponed.

  • NurseCon At Sea credits do not guarantee availability of Reservations, staterooms, experiences, itineraries, classes, or other specific features on current or future Nursecon At Sea Events.  All reservations are first come, first served and subject to availability.  NurseCon At Sea credits are non-refundable, non-transferable, and have no cash value.
  • NurseCon At Sea and Destinations reserve the right to change Participant staterooms, reservations, manifests, ports of call, schedules, enrollments, or any other Event details at the sole discretion of Nursecon At Sea, Destinations, the Ship, the Cruise Line or any government’s authorities at any time for any reason. 

Fuel surcharge – Purchaser agrees that the Cruise Line hereby reserves the right to charge to purchaser a fuel supplement charge at its discretion.  Such charges will not exceed $30 per passenger per day. 

Cancellation Policy. No refunds, credits, or value of any kind will be provided to Participants for any reason in the event of cancellation.  Fees already paid toward the Reservation will be converted to Administrative Fees, and Nursecon At Sea will have the option to resell the stateroom in question without compensation to the original Reservation holder. 

Entry and Restrictions. A NurseCon At Sea Reservation allows the Participant entry to specific defined events, but does not guarantee admission onto the Vessel. All participants must follow specific guidelines from the Cruise Line and government agencies – including but not limited to COVID-19 or other illness-related protocol — to gain access to the Vessel including but not limited to conduct, customs, health and safety policies. Failure to meet those guidelines may result in the delay or cancellation of your Reservation and your ability to participate in the Event. NurseCon At Sea and its Licensed Travel Agent will not issue refunds for failing to meet these requirements under any circumstance.

Refusal of passage for any reason by the carrier, law enforcement/customs authorities, or any other entity with authority to refuse passage will result in cancelation of your Nursecon At Sea ticket without refund.  Examples:  1.  Anyone caught with contraband of any kind upon embarkation will lose their ticket; 2.  Anyone with a customs, citizenship, immigration or documentation issue who is refused passage by the aforementioned authorities will lose their ticket without refund.  3.  If you suspect that you are or might be pregnant, please check with the cruise line on their pregnancy policy.  You may have to bring a doctor’s note, and with or without a doctor’s note they may have a policy stating that you cannot board the ship if you are beyond a certain stage of your pregnancy.  In case of such refusal, your reservation will be canceled and no refund will be issued.

Refusal of passage includes removal from ship or denial of reboarding at any time.

Unused reservations, due to refusal of passage, inability to reach the Port in time to board and sail, or any other reason, have no value of any kind. 

Medical services are available upon the ship for an additional fee, charged by and paid to the Ship, the Cruise Line and/or its medical vendor.  NurseCon At Sea disclaims any liability in connection with medical services given by a third party.  Participant voluntarily absolves Nursecon at Sea for any liability, and indemnifies Nursecon At Sea for any action arising therefrom.

Service animals – Animals and/or pets of any kind, other than service animals which are recognized by and fall under the Cruise Line’s service animal policy, are not allowed on board the Vessel.  Service animals must meet the requirements of the Cruise Line and advance arrangements must be made directly with the Cruise Line.  Any creatures will be confiscated and quarantined as per the ship’s policy, and arrangements will be made for the animal to be processed and landed at the next port of call at the Participant’s sole expense. Recognized assistance dogs are subject to and must comply with national and EU Regulations regarding health, inoculations, training and travel. It is the passenger’s responsibility to have all necessary papers and make all necessary arrangements prior to the cruise and to be satisfied that the assistance dog can be carried to the ports of embarkation and disembarkation and that the dog is not prohibited from going ashore at the various ports of call.

NurseCon At Sea expressly and specifically disclaims responsibility of any kind for the treatment or well-being of such creature, or for any and loss or injury associated with the process described herein.

Damage to ship – Anyone who damages any part of the ship or its contents will be responsible to the Cruise Line for paying for the repair or replacement of the damaged property. The value of the damage and the charge therefor will be determined by ship personnel, and the charge to your account will be from the Cruise Line.  Nursecon At Sea has nothing to do with these decisions or this process.  Cameras are taking video throughout the ship, and any accidental or purposeful damage will be available on recorded video for ship’s staff to review.

Privacy

Ports and ships are thoroughly covered by cameras which are recording at all times.  Event staff will be taking still photographs and video, and each Participant, by virtue of participating in the Event, waives any and all rights to privacy while in the Port, on the Ship, and at any function or event associated with the Event. Photographs and/or audio/video recordings taken at the Events by Nursecon At Sea, or others on behalf of Nursecon At Sea, may include a Participant’s image, name, voice and/or likeness. By attending and/or participating in the Events, Participant hereby grants Nursecon At Sea permission to use, and to sublicense to third-parties, the Participant’s photograph, image, likeness, voice and statements for any purpose, including, without limitation, commercial purposes, without compensation or credit to the Participant, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised. 

Alcohol policy, narcotics/contraband

Bringing beverages (alcoholic or non) aboard the ship in your luggage or on your person is strictly forbidden.  Your bags are subject to search by law enforcement authorities and by Cruise Line security and third-party vendors.  Prohibited items will be confiscated and not returned.  Narcotics or other contraband may be destroyed and the passenger will be subject to arrest and prosecution at the discretion of local law enforcement and authorities.  Prescription medications must be in their original prescription containers, as issued by a licensed pharmacy.  Certain items, such as cannabis, are not recognized by the federal government as a legal, legitimate prescription medication, and are considered contraband for the purposes of the Terms. 

Smoking policy;  Smoking is bad for you and you shouldn’t do it.  Further, it is unhealthy for the people around you, particularly when you’re smoking in a crowded area.  That aside, cruise ships have very specific policies regarding smoking which must be adhered to strictly for the safety of passengers and crew, the Vessel, the ocean and marine life.  Designated smoking areas on the Vessel are outdoors and are limited.  There is never any smoking of anything indoors, including in your stateroom.  Please check the ship’s policies for the current stance on vaping.  The cruise line can and will impose and collect fines if they even suspect that you have smoked any material of any kind in your stateroom or elsewhere within the Vessel.  Smoking areas will have ash and butt collection facilities.  Throwing material of any kind, including but not limited to smoking materials, off of the ship is a hazard, is against maritime law, and will subject you to fines and possible ejection from the event.  

Reservations Cannot be Prizes. NurseCon At Sea Reservations may not be used as a prize or incentive in any form of promotion, contest, game, or sweepstakes without advance written approval from Nursecon At Sea.

No Tampering with Reservations. Tampering with any Reservations, including, without limitation, Badges (e.g., modifying, tearing, cutting, taping, etc.) is not permitted. If tampering is evident, the applicable Reservation(s) will be invalidated and confiscated, and Participant will not be allowed entry to any/all Nursecon At Sea venues and Events where the Reservation(s) is required.

NurseCon At Sea Lost and Found. NurseCon At Sea is not responsible for lost or damaged items dropped off at the Reservation Help Desk during the Events. Lost and Found will be located at the Help Desk during the Events. Participants can drop off found items at the Help Desk during the Event. At the end of the event, unclaimed lost and found items may be disposed of at Nursecon At Sea’s discretion.

Respect and Responsibility Both participants and Nursecon At Sea agree to respect, hold responsible, and maintain a positive, supportive, and healthy community. NurseCon At Sea does not tolerate the encouragement or the act of any inappropriate behavior before, during, or after any Nursecon At Sea event which includes, but is not limited to: verbal or physical abuse, violence, the use of derogatory or discriminatory language, any form of harassment, racism, sexism, or any other disparaging or damaging language or behavior directed at any staff member, participant, ship’s employee, or any other person, whether in-person, via the Nursecon At Sea mobile app, through social media channels, email, phone call, or any other method of communication, both public and private. 

Insurance. Each participant understands that it is their responsibility to arrange appropriate insurance coverage in connection with their attendance at this Event, if they so choose. NurseCon At Sea and Destinations highly recommend travel insurance. Depending on the policy chosen by the Participant, a relatively inexpensive travel insurance can mitigate some or all of the fees and costs which may be lost due to various unfortunate circumstances, some of which are described herein.  

Travel Documentation. Federal requirements for travel documentation change from time to time.  The latest requirements can be found here https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/topics/travel-documents, and it is each Participant’s responsibility to bring the necessary documentation.  Travel documentation must be a minimum of six months from expiration on the date of embarkation and sailing.  Be advised that the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol sometimes reviews incoming ship’s manifests for passengers with outstanding warrants, and can and will arrest passengers upon arrival to the U.S.  In the event that a Participant arrives for embarkation without the required documentation and is denied boarding by the ship, cruise line or authorities, that Participant’s reservation will be canceled without refund, and may be resold by Nursecon At Sea without obligation to refund or return any funds to the canceled Participant.  

Age Policy. NurseCon At Sea and its Licensed Travel Agent reserves the right, without any refund of any kind, to refuse entry to any person who is not at least 18 years old with a valid ID on the date of the start of the event. 

Voluntary Participation & Assumption of Risk. Participant understands that participating in Nursecon At Sea Events is voluntary and may involve certain risks of physical injury, damage to property, and other damages or losses that may be sustained by a Participant. Participant assumes all risk of damage, property loss, and/or personal injury which may occur by participating in the Events.  The Company expressly disclaims any responsibility for personal injury, property damage, loss, delay, inconvenience, or other matters due to negligence, wrongful acts, errors or omissions on the part of any third party, or any supplier of services of goods or of agents selected by you or your travel agent.

NURSECON AT SEA SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF THE SERVICES OR INFORMATION PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE EVENT OR ANY FUTURE NURSECON AT SEA EVENTS. 

NO WARRANTIES. EXCEPT AS MAY BE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS, PARTICIPANT’S PARTICIPATION IN THE EVENTS, AND ALL SERVICES AND PRODUCTS PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE EVENTS, ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND NO OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR OTHERWISE, ARE MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE SAME, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR SAFETY, OR ANY WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE FROM COURSE OF DEALING. NURSECON AT SEA AND DESTINATIONS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES NOT EXPRESSLY STATED HEREIN.

Indemnification. Participant agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Nursecon At Sea and its Licensed Travel Agent, officers, employees, volunteers, contractors, suppliers, and representatives harmless from and against any and all claims, demands and all other liabilities, including, without limitation, costs and attorneys’ fees, made by any third party arising out of or in connection with Participant’s use of the reservation(s) or Reservations, or any violation of the Terms by Participant.

General Provisions. Nothing in this Agreement establishes an agency, partnership, or joint venture between the parties, or relationship of employer or employee, between the parties (or between either party and the other party’s personnel). Headings are included for convenience only and will not be used to construe these Terms. In the event that any term or provision of these Terms is held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other term or provision hereof (which will remain in effect), and the parties agree thereafter to use their best efforts to substitute a provision of similar economic intent and effect. 

Vending:  NO VENDING OF ANY KIND IS ALLOWED AT THE EVENT, except for by individuals or entities expressly authorized by the Company.  Unauthorized vendors’ goods are subject to confiscation and forfeiture.  Unauthorized vendors are subject to the cancelation of their reservations and participation, and discharge from the ship at the next scheduled port.  

HEALTH AND FITNESS TO TRAVEL

Passenger warrants that he/she is fit to travel by sea and that their conduct or condition will not impair the safety of the Cruise Ship or inconvenience the other passengers. Any passenger with a condition that may affect his/her fitness to travel is strongly encouraged to check with their personal physician regarding their ability to travel and to obtain a written physician’s certificate of Passenger’s fitness for an international sea voyage. If it appears to the Company, the Master or the Cruise Ship’s Doctor in their sole discretion that a Passenger is for any reason unfit to travel, likely to endanger health or safety, likely to be refused permission to land at any port, or likely to render the Company liable for Passenger maintenance, support or repatriation, then the Company or the Master shall have the right to take any of the following courses and the Company shall have no further liability to Passenger: (i) Refuse to embark the Passenger at any port; (ii) Disembark the Passenger at any port; (iii) Transfer the Passenger to another berth or cabin; (iv) If the Cruise Ship doctor considers it advisable, to place and confine the Passenger in the Cruise Ship’s Infirmary, Passenger’s cabin or any other cabin, or to transfer the Passenger to a health facility at any port, all at the Passenger’s expense. Passenger acknowledges that travel by sea involves certain risks and hazards including motion of the Vessel by sea conditions and the delay and/or impossibility of immediate evacuation from the Vessel in the event of a medical emergency depending on the Vessel’s location and prevailing sea and weather conditions. The Company shall have no liability and shall owe no full or partial refund or credit in the event the Passenger is refused passage, disembarked, confined to the infirmary or their cabin, or transferred to another berth or cabin pursuant to this section.

Participation in the ship’s lifeboat drill prior to or shortly after sailing is mandatory for all passengers, crew and staff, without exception.  Failure to participate can result in discharge from the ship at the next port, at the captain’s sole discretion. 

With the exception of Nursecon At Sea’s cancelation policy, the terms and conditions and/or policies of the Cruise Line supersede any of the Terms and shall prevail where there is ambiguity or conflict.  All Passengers must abide by all directives issued by the Cruise Line or are subject to sequestration or removal from the Ship without refund of any fees due or paid.

The foregoing Terms and Conditions include discussions and information regarding substance abuse and domestic abuse/violence.  If you are the victim of domestic abuse or violence, help is available, and Nursecon At Sea encourages you to seek and receive this assistance.  Visit the National Domestic Violence Helpline at www.helpline.org or by phone at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
