Terms and Conditions

We at Teeming River Cruises want to do everything we can to make sure your trip is as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to having you as a guest and wish to provide you with the details of the terms and conditions for your travel with us. Please read the following details carefully, as the payment or purchase of any travel services offered by Teeming River Cruises constitutes a contractual arrangement between the passenger (you) and Teeming River Cruises, and represents your acceptance of the Teeming River Cruises Terms and Conditions.

PRICES

All prices are per person in US Dollars based on double occupancy (2 people sharing a room) unless otherwise stated. Prices are capacity controlled. Items not included in the published price include, but are not limited to, airfares to and from destination, transfers, passport and visa fees, insurance (health, accident, baggage, or travel protection plans), items of a personal nature such as laundry, spa and salon services, mini bar purchases, food outside of the contracted Teeming River Cruises regular menu as presented on board vessel, alcoholic beverages and soda, gratuities, along with other items of a personal nature. Shore Excursions and city apps are not included in the tour package as well as foreign port taxes unless specifically indicated in the package inclusions.

In case of electronic, clerical, printing or human error, Teeming River Cruises reserves the right to re-invoice for the correct service charge or price. A full refund will be issued to passengers who choose not to pay an increase, provided Teeming River Cruises receives a written cancellation notification within five days of the notice of the price increase.

RESERVATION DEPOSITS AND PAYMENTS

A nonrefundable, per person deposit of at least 50% of the rental fee (i.e. cruise fare) is required at the time of booking.  Payment in full is due at least 90 days prior to departure and secures the reservation. If there is an outstanding balance by the final payment due date listed on passenger’s invoice, passenger’s reservations, including all services, will be subject to automatic cancellation. Once canceled, a service reinstatement fee of $50 will be added to passenger’s invoice and must be paid in advance to apply for a reconfirmation of booking. Any travel insurance purchased is nonrefundable once paid to Teeming River Cruises.

FORM OF PAYMENT

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, US Dollar check, bank check, and money order are all acceptable forms of payment. All payments made by check should be made payable to TeemingVR. There is a $50 fee for returned checks. Wire Transfers and Debit Cards are not acceptable. Third-party credit cards are not acceptable. All payments made within 30 days of departure must be made by credit card.

Some credit card companies may impose a “Foreign Transaction Fee” even though your transaction is denominated in US dollars. This fee is an arbitrary fee that may occur in a small number of cases, accruing wholly to the credit card issuing bank. Teeming River Cruises does not control these bank-imposed fees nor does Teeming River Cruises derive any benefit whatsoever from them; we are therefore unable to accept responsibility for the fees.

RESERVATION CONFIRMATION AND CHANGES

Passengers are responsible for verifying that everything on their invoice is accurate and complete, including names of passengers, dates of travel, options selected. Note each name must match the relevant passport. Teeming River Cruises cannot accept responsibility if we are not notified of inaccuracies within 5 days of sending out the TeemingRC Confirmation. Changes are subject to the charges and penalties noted below. In the case of billing errors, Teeming River Cruises reserves the right to re-invoice the passenger with correct pricing.

Changes to an existing reservation, whatever the cause, are subject to a $50 per person charge plus any additional supplier fees. This includes name changes. Changes or additions after departure are subject to local rates at the time of change and in some cases must be paid directly by the passenger to the service provider. There are no changes or refunds for excursions or other additional services. There are no refunds for unused services.

FLIGHT ARRANGEMENTS

Teeming River Cruises does not make your airfare reservations.  Passengers must make their own flight arrangements. Teeming River Cruises will not be responsible for late arrivals or missed transfers due to delayed or canceled flights, for missed cruise/trip days, or any resulting extra costs from the above scenarios.

AIRPORT/SHIP TRANSFERS

Passengers must make their own transfer arrangements.

BAGGAGE

Teeming River Cruises has no baggage limit aboard the vessel, however, all passengers’ bags must fit in their cabin without obstructing access in and around the cabin.

Airlines may have additional baggage restrictions and may impose additional fees for checked baggage and/or excess baggage. Additional taxes and surcharges may be collected by foreign government and non-government entities. Passengers must keep an eye on their baggage—it is their responsibility throughout the trip. Teeming River Cruises is not responsible for loss, theft, or damage to baggage and/or personal belongings at any time during the cruise or cruise/tour, or on included transfers and other transportation. A protection plan covering lost, stolen or damaged baggage can be secured by purchasing travel insurance.

DOCUMENTS

Teeming River Cruises will email passengers a confirmation when initial payment and final payments are made. All additional information will be emailed to passengers. A hard copy will not be mailed.

PASSPORT/VISAS

Passengers are responsible for ensuring that they have the proper travel documents and are obligated to check with the respective consulate(s) or visa agency to determine whether any visas or passports are required. Passports are required to be valid for at least 6 months after the scheduled return date of the trip. Some countries may require a full blank page in the passport for stamping purposes. For more information please contact the appropriate government agency. Non-US citizens should check with the respective consulate of the country(s) to be visited for current entry requirements. The process of obtaining a passport may take up to 3 months.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

Teeming River Cruises makes every effort to ensure that passenger’s trip is safe and enjoyable. However, situations beyond our and their control may occur. We wish our passengers never had to cancel or interrupt their cruise, but occasionally things beyond their control force them to change their plans. We strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance. To help provide you with some peace of mind, Teeming River Cruises has teamed up with RoamRight, a leading Travel Insurance Company to offer a comprehensive plan to address many travel concerns such as trip cancellation and interruption, lost and delayed baggage benefits, coverage for pre-existing conditions when purchased within 21 days of initial trip deposit, and emergency medical coverage. Keep in mind that as the passenger, your health plan coverage for a stay outside the US may be limited.

The vacation participant agrees that neither the Teeming River Cruises nor its affiliates shall be liable for any damage, loss (including personal injury, death, and property loss), or expense occasioned by any act or omission of any supplier providing services, any insurer or insurance administrator under the Travel Protection plan, or any other person.

ITINERARY CHANGES

Passengers can count on the value of Teeming River Cruises’ experience and regional knowledge to make sure they enjoy their cruise-tour even when conditions beyond our control occur. The very nature of a river, its sources, and networks of bridges and locks means that there will be times when weather or other conditions in a region require Teeming River Cruises to make adjustments and/or modifications to an itinerary. Although every effort will be made to keep itineraries and tour package as presented, Teeming River Cruises reserves the right to substitute itineraries or tour packages. In such cases, we will do everything we can to make sure the locations visited, the shore excursions taken and the hotels or vessels offered are like the ones originally arranged. National monuments and tourist sites regularly undergo renovations, which can obscure views of the site. No tour will be canceled due to renovations; however, Teeming River Cruises will determine based on the conditions if the itinerary needs amending. Any changes to itineraries will not result in eligibility for a refund. Itineraries are subject to change without notice and may need to be altered specifically because of water levels, wind factors, or other conditions. Passengers who choose to cancel or interrupt their cruise or cruise-tour due to an itinerary change will not be issued a refund.

CHANGE IN CABIN CATEGORY OR NUMBER BY THE SHIPOWNER

For technical or operational reasons, river companies or ship-owners may allot the passenger a cabin other than the one set or chosen upon the reservation. In that event, the new allotted cabin should be at least in the same classification. Such change shall not be considered a valid cancellation reason for the client, nor a significant change in the contract and shall entitle no compensation.

EXCURSIONS

Optional shore excursions presented on Teeming River Cruises’ website are offered through local service providers and are independent of Teeming River Cruises. Teeming River Cruises reserves the right to reschedule and/or cancel any shore excursions if the minimum number of participants is not met or for other circumstances (including but not limited to weather, safety, closure of sites by local authorities and strikes). If passengers choose to cancel their reserved shore excursion, there will be no refund given. Although Teeming River Cruises itineraries contain recommendations for optional port excursions and/or activities for passenger’s leisure time; these suggestions do not constitute an endorsement of any specific service provider, regardless if Teeming River Cruises suggested the local providers and/or assisted the passengers in the booking process with said provider. The decision to participate in any such shore excursions or leisure activities should be made independently and with due consideration. Accordingly, Teeming River Cruises has no liability for any optional shore excursion or suggested activities (including any acts or omissions of operators, organizers, agents or employees associated with these excursions and activities).

COMPLIANCE WITH THE TIMING OF STOPOVERS

On stopovers at ports, the latest time for returning to the vessel along with the departure time of the vessel are announced on board. Passengers are responsible to observe and abide by the appointed times. Teeming River Cruises has no liability in the event of failure of passengers to board at the stipulated time. No refund or compensation shall be payable to the passenger for any losses incurred due to their failure to board on time.

ADVANCED, CANCELED OR DELAYED SAILING

Teeming River Cruises reserves the right to cancel, advance or postpone any scheduled sailing date and may, but is not obligated to, substitute hotels or vessels. Teeming River Cruises shall not be liable for any loss to passengers because of any such cancellation, advancement or postponement. In the event of cancellation by Teeming River Cruises, passengers’ sole right of recourse shall be to obtain a refund of monies paid to Teeming River Cruises.

SAFETY AND SECURITY

Passengers must follow the instructions of Teeming River Cruises, its affiliates, crew members and local service providers at all times to ensure safety on the vessel, at ports, and on shore excursions. Weapons of any kind are not permitted on board the Teeming River Cruises vessel or on escorted shore excursions. Passengers should be mindful that during their participation on vacations conducted by Teeming River Cruises, inherent risks and dangers may occur beyond the company’s control (including, but not limited to, political unrest; terrorism; acts of lawlessness; accident or illness in isolated regions lacking the means of rapid evacuation or medical facilities; the hazards of traveling in foreign territories; and acts of God). Teeming River Cruises is not responsible or liable for any such risks and dangers. Furthermore, Teeming River Cruises will not have liability regarding the availability, accessibility, provision, or adequacy of any medical care provided. By agreeing to participate in a tour, vacation and/or optional shore excursions offered through Teeming River Cruises, passengers agree that they will hold Teeming River Cruises harmless for any such provision of medical care or services. Payment of passengers’ deposit indicates acceptance of the associated safety and security risks and dangers, as well as passengers’ agreement to hold Teeming River Cruises harmless for these aforementioned risks and dangers.

Security, along with safety, is a major concern to Teeming River Cruises and the situation globally is continually shifting. Events around the world, coupled with the Travel Advisories issued by the US Government, may at times necessitate changes to the itinerary or even trip cancellation. Risks are involved in travel to any country and passengers could experience security difficulties. Passengers must accept these risks and assume responsibility for their own travel decisions.

HEALTH

For full enjoyment of Teeming River Cruises vacations, passengers should select a trip that is well suited to their physical health and abilities. Passengers who require any form of assistance due to physical handicaps like sight or hearing impairments are required to notify Teeming River Cruises prior to booking. Furthermore, potential passengers are advised that individuals with heart disease, chronic illness, advanced pregnancy, or mental illness are not well suited to participate in these demanding travel itineraries.

When notified of any such health condition or disability, Teeming River Cruises will require a medical condition form filled out and signed by passenger’s physician. Teeming River Cruises reserves the right to reject a potential passenger from the cruise and/or remove any person from a tour due to the failure of the passenger to provide required notification and/or when, in our sole judgment, continued participation would considerably impede the services to be provided to all passengers.

To participate in all tours, passengers must be able to understand and follow instructions given by the cruise director or tour guides to ensure their safety, as well as, the successful operation of the tour.

Teeming River Cruises reserves the right to remove or quarantine any passenger from the group who arrives at the destination showing signs of illness or who becomes ill during the tour, thereby posing a threat to the health and safety of other participants. This removal or quarantine will be at the sole discretion of Teeming River Cruises and/or their representatives, the ship’s captain or local tour operators. The ill passenger will be directed to a local medical facility for examination. Only upon clearance by an accredited medical facility or licensed health practitioner (verifying the passenger’s fitness to travel without posing a health or safety threat to fellow passengers) will the passenger be permitted to resume group activities. All expenses and any losses incurred as a result of the medical treatment and services (including but not limited to examination, diagnosis, treatment, any other medically-related charges, additional hotel stays and related transportation, meals and alternate travel plans) will be the sole responsibility of the said passenger.

MEDICAL SERVICES

Teeming River Cruises does not employ medical personnel or have specialized facilities. Any required medical attention will be administered by a local facility at the passenger’s expense. Teeming River Cruises cannot guarantee the availability or quality of local medical services or facilities. Resulting charges will be the sole responsibility of the passenger.

MOBILITY

Teeming River Cruises endeavors to provide a safe, enjoyable, and memorable travel experience for all passengers. Unfortunately, Teeming River Cruises is not equipped or staffed to provide personal services (such as assistance walking, getting on and off the ship, coaches or other forms of transportation, etc.). Likewise, tour operators, guides, drivers or hotel personnel are not able to provide such assistance. A qualified and able body companion should accompany passengers who need such individual assistance. Passengers must report to Teeming River Cruises at the time of reservation any mobility issues. Passengers should be aware that most tours include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and locations which may not be easily accessible. We recommend passengers wear footwear suitable for time on board the ship and for excursions with non-slip soles. In the interests of group harmony, passengers should be able to maintain the pace of the tour. Passengers with special needs would be better served independently, scheduling private tours more suitable to their level of mobility.

WHEELCHAIRS, WALKERS AND SERVICE ANIMALS

This is an international tour. Hotels and river cruises outside of the United States are not required to comply with ADA requirements and therefore may not have ramps, wide entryways or elevators to accommodate disabled passengers or devices such as wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters. Due to physical constraints and space limitations, wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters may not be taken aboard motor coaches and river cruises.

Furthermore, service animals cannot be accommodated on international escorted tours.

YOUNG TRAVELERS

Passengers who are less than 18 years of age must be accompanied and share a stateroom with a parent, legal guardian or other responsible adults over age 21. Adults accompanying children are responsible for their behavior onboard and onshore. There are no connecting cabins on Teeming River Cruises. Children under 8 years of age are not allowed on any Teeming River Cruises. There are no discounts given to young travelers on Teeming River Cruises.

We reserve the right to limit the number of minors under the age of 18 both on board and on optional excursions booked through Teeming River Cruises.

Due to heightened security, many countries have adopted practices to prevent international abductions of children. If a child will be traveling with adults other than the parents or with only one parent, it is recommended that a notarized letter be written by the parents or non-traveling parent granting authorization to travel, including the dates of travel. We suggest that passengers also contact the appropriate consulate and airlines, as they may have additional requirements or recommendations.

SMOKING POLICY

For the comfort of all our passengers, smoking is only permitted in the specifically designated area of our ships. Smoking is not permitted on motorcoaches or any group excursions. This policy applies to all forms of smoking materials including vapor e-cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. Marijuana (whether legal or illegal) or any other illegal drug is strictly prohibited onboard.

NOISE AND VIBRATIONS

Please note while Teeming River Cruises attempts to minimize noise and vibrations on board the ship, passengers understand that some noises and vibrations may be experienced while on board and agrees that Teeming River Cruises cannot be held responsible for such noise and vibrations.

DIETS

Please be advised that Teeming River Cruises cannot accommodate specific or special diets. Small ships have limited choices aboard and we cannot create or maintain a special menu for passengers’ diet.

PETS

Pets, including service animals, are not permitted on Teeming River Cruises trips.

LANGUAGE

Please note that the official language on board ship and on shore excursions is English. All Cruise Directors, Hosts, and Local Guides speak English, and all ship commentary is conducted in English. For maximum enjoyment and understanding, and for safety, passengers should be able to read, understand, and speak English.

PHOTOGRAPHIC RELEASE

Trip participants grant Teeming River Cruises permission to photograph and video events during the vacation and cruise to be used for promotional or commercial use without payment of any compensation to the participant.

DENIED BOARDING AND AUTHORITY TO REMOVE PASSENGERS

Teeming River Cruises or the ship’s captain or operator may at their sole discretion deny boarding and transport to any passenger. Moreover, Teeming River Cruises has the authority to remove any passenger who they reasonably believe to be a danger to himself or herself or to others or is threatening to engage in behavior which may negatively affect the safety, security, enjoyment, or comfort of other passengers or crew members (such as participating in any illegal activity, being verbally or physically abusive behavior, disruptive, obscene, obnoxious, harassing, or discriminatory). Likewise, failure or refusal of the passenger to follow Teeming River Cruises and its representatives and crew members’ rules, procedures or instructions is grounds for immediate removal from the ship or tour.

In the event a passenger is denied boarding or removed; such passenger may be left at any port or location without any liability to Teeming River Cruises or any of its related entities. The passenger will not be entitled to any refund, payment, compensation or credit of any kind for unused or missed trip services or charges incurred resulting from the termination of the travel arrangements with Teeming River Cruises. In addition, the passenger will be responsible for their travel costs to return back home. Teeming River Cruises shall be entitled to recover from the passenger any expenses incurred due to their denied boarding or removal.

HOLIDAYS

Passengers should bear in mind, that during both local and national holidays, certain days of the week, for special events, and during religious occasions, certain attractions and facilities (such as museums, churches, sightseeing tours, restaurants, and shops) may be closed to the public. During peak seasons, entrance to some attractions and sites may be limited or not available. Alternatives will be offered whenever possible. Teeming River Cruises cannot be held responsible for any closures, required itinerary changes, or modifications for any reason.

GRATUITIES

It is customary for passengers to give cruise gratuities, subject to their satisfaction with the services rendered. Gratuities for their Cruise Director, Local Hosts, Local Guides, driver, and ship’s crew are not included in the vacation price and are discretionary. Passengers should refer to the onboard program for suggested tipping amounts.

DOUBLE DOCKING

Local authorities are responsible for assigning docking positions at each port. Consequently, Teeming River Cruises and other river cruise companies have no control over where they can dock. At times this can result in double docking (i.e. where more than one ship is assigned to the same dock and ships are rafted together), which may temporarily block some views and make access to and from the ship more difficult. Teeming River Cruises will not be responsible for any accessibility problems or inconveniences associated with the ship’s docking assignment.

INABILITY TO SAIL

Neither Teeming River Cruises nor the owners or operators of the vessels shall be liable for delay or inability to sail or perform due to any condition caused by or arising from water level, drought, flooding, severe weather, other acts of God, peril of navigation, repair or maintenance on the river (such as locks, docks or bridges), strikes, civil or labor issues, lockout, fire, explosion, collision, vessel breakdown or damage to the vessel. Neither shall they be responsible for issues caused by or arising from civil commotion, riot, insurrection, war, government restraint, requisitioning of the vessel, political disturbance, acts or threats of terrorism, epidemics, inability to secure or failure of supplies including fuel, and/or other circumstances beyond Teeming River Cruises control. In such cases, part or all of the cruise itinerary may be operated by motor coach and accommodations provided by hotels. If this becomes necessary, Teeming River Cruises will endeavor to provide equal or similar services, however no tour will be canceled and no monetary compensation will be made for those changes.

WI-FI

On board the ship, Wi-Fi connectivity is offered by an independent third party with separate Terms & Conditions of usage. Wi-Fi connectivity is not guaranteed, may be unavailable, is often disrupted and slower on board. Passengers will not be able to download or stream movies or most video. Onboard Wi-Fi will be best for emails and texting. In many cases, the bandwidth cannot support Skype or other types of calling services or apps.

PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION

Personal information supplied when requesting information or booking (from the initial inquiry, booking, during the vacation and beyond) is collected by Teeming River Cruises. This data may be used to assist travelers with their vacation arrangements and will be necessary to properly process the passenger’s reservation and tours with Teeming River Cruises and their suppliers. These details include but are not limited to passenger’s full name, address, date of birth, credit card information, passport number and expiration date and any medical conditions or disabilities disclosed to Teeming River Cruises. Failure of passengers to fully and accurately supply the details may result in the passenger’s trip being interrupted or canceled. There are no refunds for passenger’s failure to provide information by the required time.

Teeming River Cruises may be required to transmit these details to other authorities or foreign countries in which the data protection and privacy laws are less rigorous than ours. Passengers, by virtue of booking with Teeming River Cruises, agree to the company using, storing and transmitting this data to other third parties for the above-specified reasons. Passengers agree to not hold Teeming River Cruises liable for the usage and protection of the aforementioned data.

Please note that, in addition to Teeming River Cruises contacting passengers in relation to their travel arrangements, they may also contact passengers following their vacation with details of other vacation opportunities/tours provided by Teeming River Cruises that may be of interest to previous passengers (unless informed by passenger of their preference to not receive such future opportunities).

PROCESSING OF PAYMENT

Teeming River Cruises may use an affiliated company, such as Teeming Vacation Rentals, in processing passengers’ payments, however, passengers have no contractual relationship with any entity other than Teeming River Cruises.
