SHIPBOARD ETIQUETTE

On the Blue (“OTB”) and MSC Cruises (“MSC”) have adopted a Zero Tolerance Policy will not allow behavior by any Celtic Thunder Passenger (“Passengers”) which negatively affects the comfort, enjoyment, health, safety or well being of other Passengers, its’ performers and staff or the ship’s crew. Passengers agree to comply with this policy, and further acknowledge that OTB and MSC reserve the right to refuse or discontinue passage to any Passenger who, in OTB or MSC’s sole judgment, is conducting himself or herself in a manner that adversely affects the cruise experience of other Passengers. In all cases OTB and MSC shall not be liable for any damages, refund or other compensation, including travel costs or any other claim as a result of such behavior.

OTB and MSC have a “Zero Tolerance” policy regarding the use, possession or distribution of any and all illegal controlled substances by Passengers aboard the ship. Passengers agrees to comply with this policy, and further acknowledge that any violation of this policy will result in disembarkation from the vessel, and Passengers acknowledges that it is OTB and MSC’s policy to report incidents of illegal activity or behavior to the appropriate law enforcement authorities for appropriate legal action. In such cases OTB and MSC shall not be liable for any damages, refund or other compensation, including travel costs or any other claim as a result of such behavior.

SMOKING

Passengers acknowledge that MSC has introduced throughout its fleet a “Clean Air” Policy, which will allow both smokers and non-smokers to enjoy their vacations on board in mutual respect. Smoking is permitted in several bars on the ship, and on one side (indicated by signage) of the principal outdoor pool deck areas, where ashtrays are provided. Passengers may also smoke outside in designated areas. Absolutely no smoking is allowed in cabins or on cabin balconies, as it is a safety hazard. The remainder of the ship is therefore totally smoke-free, for the benefit of non-smokers. Passengers agree to comply with this policy and further acknowledge that any violation of this policy could result in disembarkation from the vessel, as well as fines levied by MSC. In such cases OTB and MSC shall not be liable for damages, refund or other compensation, including travel costs or any other claim as a result of such behavior.

All OTB Passengers agree to sign and acknowledge this Zero tolerance policy prior to receiving their OTB event credentials. Failure to sign shall result in immediate disembarkation from vessel.

THE ENTERTAINERS

The Entertainers are available throughout the entire cruising experience, from CT shows, solo performances, photo ops, pub quizzes, cookery classes, golf games, Q&A sessions, karaoke, and more. In fact they have a crazy schedule with very little downtime. Please be respectful of the very little time off that they have during the cruise. You will have loads of opportunities to interact with them, see them perform with all the scheduled events that are going on, we promise. Please when you see one of the guys taking a break, by all means wave and say hi in passing, but respect that this is a small period of downtime for them before the next event.
