17. ITINERARY MODIFICATIONS/OUR RIGHT TO CANCEL:
We will make every reasonable effort to operate the Trips as advertised; however, we and Tour Operator reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, including but not limited to curtailment or modification of Activities, hotels, meals, transportation, and Adventure Guides, as we deem necessary. Further we reserve the right to cancel the Trip or any Activity because of inadequate enrollment that makes any Trip or Activity economically infeasible to operate or because of good-faith concerns with respect to the safety, health, or welfare of the Guests. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods or due to repairs or renovations, some Activities may be disrupted or unavailable. Deviations from planned Trip itineraries or any aspects of the travel may occur. If conditions make river cruise routes unsafe for navigation or in other respects, or raise sufficient doubt about safety, we and Tour Operator reserve the right to modify or provide alternate services, which may include, but are not limited to, providing accommodation on the docked ship or on land and/or substituting ground arrangements for river cruise transportation. We and Tour Operator further reserve the right to reduce the number of Adventure Guides, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of guests is not reached. Similarly, the stated group maximum size may be marginally exceeded if necessary to accommodate a family. None of these modifications or changes shall affect the Trip price or entitle you to any credit or refund.
We shall also have the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, including, but not limited to prior disputed or suspected fraudulent payment transactions, to cancel from time to time any and all reservations, in whole or in part, and, in cases where we have received a valid and confirmed payment, we will provide a full refund.
We reserve the right to cancel any Trip because of inadequate enrollment that makes the Trip economically infeasible to operate or because of good-faith concerns with respect to the safety, health, or welfare of the Guests. If we cancel a Trip prior to departure, the Guest will be provided with a full refund of monies paid; except in the event that the cancellation is due to a significant event that makes it infeasible to operate the Trip as planned, in which case the Guest will be provided with a refund and/or credit toward a future Trip equivalent to the amount paid.
If we cancel your Trip prior to its start because there are too few Guests: (i) we will attempt to re-book you on another departure of the same itinerary, subject to availability, and we will bear any reasonable airline re-booking charges; however, if we are unable to rebook you, we will issue a full refund of your Trip price and plan (unless you have filed a claim); and (ii) if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to supporting documentation) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees; and (iv) the aforesaid payments and/or rebooking by us shall constitute a full settlement. The immediately preceding sentence does not apply to any cancellation (or deemed cancellation under the agreement between the group travel organizer and us) of a group travel reservation by the organizer of the group travel experience, for whatever reason, and in the event of such cancellation you will not be entitled to any refund or reimbursement from us of any amounts.…
