Introduction

Welcome, these are terms and conditions (“Terms”) for www.vikingcruises.com and all other websites, mobile applications, onboard media, blogs, phone, in person, social media and other places, and other online or wireless offerings, whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology, owned or operated by Viking River Cruises, Inc. dba Viking Cruises and Viking Ocean Cruises (“Viking”, “Company,” “we,” or “us”) or on our behalf (collectively, our “Access Points”). We look forward to having you enjoy your trip and wish to provide you with the details of the terms and conditions for your travel.

If you do not agree to these Terms, please refrain from accessing the Access Points which offer information on cruises, tours and other products and offerings, including transportation of passengers and baggage on all cruise vessels and other transportation and arrangements (collectively, the “Services”) specifically and solely provided by the cruise operator (and not by independent contractors) (the “Carrier”).

Users of these Access Points agree to be bound by these Terms and the Viking Cruises Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”). These Terms and the Privacy Policy apply to all visitors, users, and others who use the Access Points to access the Services (“Users”).

Notification of Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions

The information on the Access Points, or contained in Viking brochures, websites or advertising materials (“Viking Advertising”) or offered by travel agents is not an offer or a contract. All Services are governed exclusively by the issued itinerary and the invoice and the Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions (“Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions”) which apply to all Carrier cruises, and other transportation and arrangements provided by the Carrier to each passenger. The Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions linked above are also available from your travel agent or in your online account at www.vikingcruises.com.

Payment Policy

A deposit for cruise/land of $500 per person is required to secure a confirmed reservation for a cruise. When more than one cruise is booked, deposit and payment policies apply per cruise. The final balance is due no later than 90 days prior to sailing but special promotions may require an earlier payment. Exceptions to this Payment Policy apply for Viking’s World Cruise. Contact your travel agent or Viking for details. All reservations are subject to cancellation without notice if payments are not received by the due dates. Air seats are limited; airfares are subject to change and are not guaranteed until full payment of air is received. Upon your full payment of the amount specified as the Full Fare (defined in the Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions, see Invoice for amount) for particular Services, Viking agrees to arrange for the provision of such Services, which will be governed by the Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions, the itinerary and the invoice as modified by supplementary materials issued by us. Upon i) booking the cruise, travel or Services through us and ii) receipt of your deposit, you are bound by Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions. Upon i) full payment by you and ii) upon issuance of a confirmation letter or final invoice to you, the Carrier is fully bound by the Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions. Promotions and special offers may have different payment terms – please refer to promotion or special offers.

Payments

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, checks and Electronic Funds Transfer are all acceptable forms of payments. All payments made by check should be made payable to Viking Cruises. Some credit card companies may impose a “Foreign Transaction Fee” even though your transaction is denominated in U.S. dollars. This is an arbitrary fee that occurs in a small number of cases and accrues entirely to the credit card–issuing bank. Viking does not control these foreign bank-imposed fees nor does Viking derive any benefit from them, monetary or otherwise; we are therefore unable to accept responsibility for the fees.

Reservations and Booking Details

To make a reservation, contact your local travel agency or call Viking at 1-855-707-4837.

“Full Fare” is defined as the full cost of any cruise, land or air component purchased from Viking. Contact your travel agent or Viking for details.

Revisions/Changes

Once a cruise/land booking has a deposit or air is paid in full, all changes are subject to a $30 charge per change/passenger. See prior section under Cancellation Policy for additional details on situations which are classified as cancellations rather than changes.

Documents

Full travel documents will be issued approximately 3 weeks prior to departure.

Transfers

Roundtrip airport-to-ship transfers are only included when air is purchased with a tour package. Transfers are only valid on tour departure and arrival dates. If you should choose to make your own air arrangements, transfers may be purchased through Viking for an additional cost or you may make your own transfer arrangements.

Travel Documentation/Visas

All passengers must have passports valid for six (6) months following the passenger’s disembarkation from their cruise and any necessary visas or affidavits when boarding. Passengers are advised to check with their travel agent or their Consulate Service to determine which documents they must obtain. If incorrect documents are obtained, passengers will be unable to participate in particular shore excursions and may be denied boarding and/or entry into certain countries. Entry into another country may be refused even if the required information and travel documents are complete. Visa kits from an independent third party are provided upon request as a service to passengers selecting destinations in Russia, China, Egypt, Jordan or Southeast Asia. Note: Due to airline security measures, your passport name must match your airline ticket name or you may be denied boarding. Viking accepts no responsibility for obtaining required visas nor for advising passengers of visa or other immigration requirements. Guests are advised that the living standards and practices at their destination, including those with respect to the provision of utilities, services and accommodation, may differ from those found in the U.S. or Canada.

Children/Minors

Due to the nature of our cruise and travel itineraries, the Carrier does not maintain facilities or services on our Ships for individuals under the age of 18 years. For all cruise/ cruise tours booked after August 1, 2018 (regardless of departure year), you must be 18 years old on or before the day you are scheduled to embark on the cruise tour. Cruises through the 2019 may still have passengers under 18 as the cruises were booked prior to August 1, 2018.

Guest’s Warranties And Physical Fitness; Health And Special Needs Considerations.

You and all other passengers traveling with you must be physically, emotionally and otherwise fit to undertake the cruise. We are not required to provide any inoculations or specialized health or mental care during your cruise tour and all such arrangements are your responsibility. We are unable to accommodate women past their sixth month of pregnancy.

Guests are strongly encouraged to advise Viking at 1-877-668-4546 (1-877-66VIKING) of any accessibility requirements prior to booking so Viking can determine if reasonable accommodations are available. Please request the appropriate accessibility form for you and your doctor to review, sign and return to us passengers are requested to advise Viking in writing, at or prior to the time a cruise tour is booked, of any physical, emotional or mental condition which may require professional attention during the cruise tour, including if the passenger requires the use of a wheelchair or other mobility equipment, not to exceed 22” in width. Passengers must bring and be solely responsible for all necessary items related to the medical condition or mobility challenge. If a mobility, medical, physical, emotional or mental condition arises after the cruise tour is booked, passengers are requested to advise Viking in writing immediately. Viking endeavors to reasonably accommodate special access needs, but we cannot guarantee it will be able to do so in all cases.

Port Accessibility and Limitations: Some ports of call may have physical conditions which may preclude certain passengers from going ashore. Additionally, for cruise tours in China, on the Mekong River, in Egypt, and for other destinations not specifically noted, certain additional conditions, restrictions and limitations exist onboard, at the ports, in excursions and on land that are beyond Viking’s control. Ship and airport access in these and other regions, including lack of wheelchair, walker or scooter accessibility, extended periods of standing and steps, are inherently present in tours that may not be appropriate for passengers with certain medical conditions and physical restrictions. Due to restrictions on boat, ship and cabin sizes, certain cruise tours are not appropriate for travelers who use wheelchairs, walkers or scooters. Airports in certain regions typically do not have ramps or elevators. Excursions visit ancient sites with uneven terrain and stairs, and include extended periods of walking over uneven surfaces.

Motorized scooters typically cannot be taken onboard planes in certain regions because authorities such as the China Aviation Administration forbids any battery of capacity greater than 160Wh (most scooter batteries) onboard an aircraft. Additionally, lithium batteries cannot be placed in checked baggage and must be hand-carried as onboard carry-on. All batteries must have the capacity clearly printed on the outside or they will not be allowed to be onboard. To calculate your battery capacity if it is only marked in mAh, divide the mAh number by 1000 and multiply by 3.7. For example, a capacity of 10400mAh./1000=10.4Ah×3.7v=28.48 Wh (under the limit of 160Wh).

Ship Access: To embark/disembark from the ship, passengers must be able to walk down/up steps and ramps without a walker or wheelchair, as gangways/ramps are typically not wide enough to accommodate these items. Not all ships have elevators, and some have split-level decks and/or significant thresholds. Airports in some regions typically do not have ramps or elevators.

Please note: Guests using walkers, crutches, or other mobility aids or who may need physical assistance throughout the trip should consider these needs when making a booking as our onboard personnel are not required or trained to perform personal tasks or assist with eating, dressing, toileting, lifting or pushing a wheelchair. Potential passengers with any medical, physical or other special needs should review their proposed ship’s layout on our website, and also obtain a copy of our Safety Policy Statement and consider their needs when making a booking.

There are inherent risks associated with traveling aboard ships that are unique to cruise tour travel. For people who are ill, or have a mental or physical disability or impairment, the risks can be more significant. Guests must be able to independently move around the ship in case of an emergency, rough seas, deal with the lack of immediate access to medical services in certain parts of the world, and acknowledge that access to some areas of the ship and ports of call may be limited or impossible. We reserve the right to determine whether a passenger is fit to travel, and to deny boarding, in the event that a passenger represents a risk to themselves or to the safety and wellbeing of those on board the ship.

Viking reserves the right to deny embarkation or remove any person from a cruise tour, optional shore exclusions or deny embarkation for a person who is not fit to travel, and/or has not received written confirmation from Viking that reasonable accommodations for their accessibility requirements may be made for them. In such cases, all related expenses, including those to return home, will be borne by the passenger and he or she shall not be entitled to any refund of the cruise tour, full fare or cruise fare or any compensation whatsoever and in such event we shall have no liability, financial or otherwise.

Additionally, we may disembark at any port any passenger who may be suffering from contagious or infectious disease or whose presence, in the opinion of the Master, may be detrimental to the comfort or safety of other passengers or the crew, or who, in the Master’s opinion, might be excluded from landing at destination by Immigration or other Governmental Authorities.

Decisions made by the Master of the Ship in health, accessibility and safety matters will be binding in all instances.

The Carrier will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of disabled travelers, but neither we nor the Carrier are responsible in the event it is unable to do so, nor are we or the Carrier responsible for any denial of services by vessel operators, air carriers, hotels, restaurants or other independent suppliers. We regret that the Carrier cannot provide individual assistance to a passenger for walking, dining, getting on and off vessels, motor coaches and other vehicles, or other personal needs.

The Carrier will endeavor to accommodate special access needs, but Viking cannot guarantee the Carrier will be able to do so in all cases. The passenger assumes the full risk of use and of any prohibitions imposed by vendors.

Inoculations, Health and Medical Issues

You are required to obtain any required inoculations and to provide for your own specialized health or mental care if required during your cruise and all such arrangements are your responsibility. A certificate of fitness is required of all passengers with significant health issues. Please see the Passenger Ticket Contract Terms and Conditions for more detailed information.
