Terms and Conditions FAB Last Minute Cruises
Acceptance of these terms and conditions is a condition of booking. Submission by you of a booking is your acknowledgment that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by these terms and conditions.
FAB Last Minute Cruises acts as an agent for cruise lines, wholesale travel companies, and other suppliers providing services, including accommodation and transportation services. FAB Last Minute Cruises is not a provider of services and has no responsibility for services provided, or not provided, by any party. No warranty or representation regarding the standard of any service or product is given. All bookings are made subject to the terms and conditions and limitations of liability imposed by those service providers. It is essential that you familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions and limitations of liability of those service providers as you will be bound by them.
If any cruise service provider is unable to provide the services which you have purchased from them, your remedy shall lie against the provider and not FAB Last Minute Cruises.
Government tax, port charges, and fuel surcharges are current at the time of booking but are subject to change without notice.
Port and departure taxes are not included in the cruise fare or included within the Government taxes or port charges. Additional departure taxes may be applicable at some ports and payable in the local currency directly on departure.
You consent to us supplying your billing, payment, and identification information to third parties with whom you enter into transactions. We may also provide such personal information to third parties as is required to complete your booking.
You authorize us to disclose your credit card details to and obtain information from, any financial institution or credit card issuer to verify the credit card and identification details that you provide. You also authorize your credit card issuer or financial institution to verify that the credit card and identification details you have provided to us are accurate.
You authorize us to take steps to confirm that there is sufficient credit on your credit card account to meet likely charges. For any payment by credit card, cruise tickets will not be issued until authorization has been obtained from the relevant card company. You authorize us to charge all fees incurred to the credit card designated by you. If payment is not received from the card issuer or its agents for any reason, you agree to pay us all amounts due on demand. Confirmed bookings are subject to your credit card approval for the transaction. Where your purchase by credit card is not approved, we will attempt to contact you, but FAB Last Minute Cruises is not responsible for any subsequent non-provision of services in the event we are unable to establish contact with you.
All cancellations are governed by the terms and conditions of the cruises booked for services.
Your request for a refund of a booked cruise is governed by the terms and conditions of the cruise company from which you have purchased the cruise fare and is made or not made as determined by the cruise company. Many fares are non-refundable. Cruise line charges or cancellation fees may apply to your particular fare. Where a refund is applicable, the turnaround time from the date of your request for a refund to the date you are provided with your refund is governed by the terms and conditions of the cruise company.
Interline fares are extended with strict eligibility conditions stipulated by the cruise lines. As the passenger, you bear the responsibility of ensuring that you meet these eligibility criteria before making payment for your cruise. Any willful or negligent misrepresentation of your eligibility status, or failure to furnish the requisite proof of eligibility, may lead to the forfeiture of any funds remitted to the cruise line, and the consequent cancellation of the cruise, along with any associated tours, air travel, or accommodations. Please be advised that we shall not be held liable for any losses incurred as a result of such actions.
All individuals departing from Australia must be in possession of a valid passport. If your passport is due to expire within six (6) months of your return to Australia, then under normal circumstances, you should obtain a new passport. However, this is often variable depending on the country you visit.
Please ensure you have a valid Passport and a Visa (as applicable) to the countries you are traveling to. The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade provides helpful information on applying for or renewing an Australian passport.
Please ensure that you have a valid passport well in advance of travel as either the cruise line staff or immigration authorities will not allow you to pass through customs and board your cruise without this documentation.
Up-to-date information is available at www.dfat.gov.au/travel/index.html
A visa provides you with the authority as a non-citizen to travel to another country.
Visas are obtained from the issuing authority in Australia, usually an embassy. Visa requirements vary both by the country you are traveling to and the current citizenship you hold. Please ensure you check well in advance of your travel dates to allow sufficient processing time as required by the embassy.
Cruise line staff or immigration authorities may not allow you to pass through customs and board your cruise without the appropriate Visa. http://www.dfat.gov.au/travel for further advice. Cruise lines may also deny boarding if you have not secured the correct visa for each port you will be entering. In most instances, the cruise company will arrange these, but if you are unsure, you must check with the cruise line directly.
It is your responsibility to ensure you have valid visas and re-entry permits that meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities. Any fines, penalties, payments, and expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements of those authorities will be your sole responsibility.
All pricing is reflected in US Dollars (USD) unless otherwise specifically denoted on the screen.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are aware of any health requirements for your travel destination and to ensure that you carry all necessary vaccination documentation.
We strongly recommend that you take out comprehensive travel insurance when making a booking.
We do not endorse or recommend any particular cruise service provider, nor do we vouch for the accuracy or completeness of the information provided by third parties in relation to their products and services. Information provided is provided in good faith and is subject to amendment at any time without notice. You should make your evaluation of the accuracy or completeness of any information, opinion, advice, or other content available.
We are not liable for any inconvenience caused or expense incurred as a result of any unsuitability or non-provision of travel services for use in association with other travel services except to the extent that liability in relation to those matters may be imposed on us by legislation that cannot be excluded. Our role in relation to your travel arrangements is limited to facilitating your booking and arranging travel documentation, payments, and refunds as applicable.
We do not accept any liability of whatever nature, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, for the acts, omissions, or default, whether negligent or otherwise, of third-party providers over whom we have no direct control.
In circumstances where liability cannot be excluded, such liability is limited, in each instance, to the value of the purchased travel arrangements.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we do not accept liability in contract, tort, or otherwise for any technical errors, corruption of any data, unauthorised access to your personal data, inaccuracies in information supplied by third parties, or failure by us to complete bookings caused directly or indirectly by force majeure or any other event which is beyond our control which is not preventable by reasonable diligence on our part.
