AmericanHolidays cannot accept liability for adverse weatherconditions during your cruise holiday.When can I getonboard? The boarding time for your ship and sailing date is specifiedin your Guest Ticket Booklet. Please do not plan on arriving atthe pier before the specified time as the ship will not be readyto board guests. Due to new government regulationsrequiring cruise lines to submit final departure manifests atleast 60 minutes prior to sailing, guests are requested tocomplete Online Check-In no later than three days prior totheir cruise. If you do not complete Online Check-In threedays prior, you will be required to complete this process at thepier at least two hours prior to the published sailing time.Please note: All guests must be checked-in and onboard theship no later than 90 minutes prior to the published sailingtime or you will not be permitted to sail.How can I pay foronboard purchases?All cruiselines operate using a 'cashless' system, meaningyour boarding card (also known as your SeaPass card) will beused as a charge card to make all onboard purchases.Normally, to activate this SeaPass account, most guestsprovide a credit card to which these purchases are chargedat the end of their cruise. In addition, the SeaPass systemmay be activated with traveller's cheques, debit cards orcash. A running tab of all your purchases will be kept underseparate folio numbers for each guest, and an itemisedstatement left in your stateroom the night beforedisembarkation. If you provided a credit card, and there areno discrepancies, the amount will be charged to your accounton the morning of disembarkation. If you have used traveller'scheques or cash to activate the account, you will need tosettle the account at the Guest Relations desk (either toreceive a reimbursement of the unused amount you originallyleft or to pay the balance of what you have charged in excessof the amount that you originally left).
