Cancellation by Artists
NAHA shall not be liable for failure of any speaker or artist or musician to attend on board or to perform during the cruise. NAHA shall not be liable to any passenger for any loss to the passenger or others to the extent that such performance is prevented or loss is caused by Acts of God, war, fire, collision, directions of underwriters, arrest, order or restraint by any government agency or official acting under the color of authority, acts of terrorism, labor disturbances or disputes, civil commotion, weather conditions and considerations of the safety of the vessel (for which the Master shall be the sole judge), breakdowns of or damage to the vessel’s hull or machinery, requisition of the vessel by government authority, illness, death of a family member or other cause or circumstance beyond NAHA’s reasonable control. In the event of any failure of any speaker or artist or musician to perform during the cruise NAHA, at its sole discretion, may engage a replacement speaker or artist or musician, change, postpone, or terminate any portion of the entertainment program. In such case, NAHA shall have no liability to any passenger for any loss, damage or expense whatsoever by reason of such change.
Changes in Bookings
The passenger booking the cabin will be considered the LEAD passenger. Only the lead passenger may make changes to the reservation. To add a passenger to an existing reservation requires an additional fee of the required cruise fare, port taxes, fees and gratuities. Cabin downgrades are not permitted. Changes to the lead passenger at any time will incur a charge of $150.
Legal names (first and last as they appear on the passengers official travel document) must be provided by September 30th. One change per cabin will be permitted at no charge until September 30th. Additional changes will incur a charge of $50 per passenger change. Any changes made after September 30th, including the replacement of “John/Jane Doe’s” will incur a charge of $50 per passenger change. Any changes made the week prior to sailing will incur a $125 per passenger change fee.
Written consent must be provided by NAHA for the transfer of any reservation. If consent is provided, the reservation may be transferred with a $175 transfer fee, which will be charged to the reservation. No transfers will be allowed after the cruise has sold out or after September 30th, whichever comes first.
Deposit and Payments
Due to the proximity of the cruise, payment is due IN FULL at the time of booking
Stateroom Number Assignments
Shortly after booking, you will receive confirmation of your reservation with your cabin number provided. If you have requests for a specific cabin or cabin location, you will need to make such requests at the time of booking. Assigned cabins will not be changed unless the type of cabin or number of occupants changes.
Online Registration with Royal Caribbean
Once we submit the manifest to Royal Caribbean (approximately 6 weeks prior to sailing), they will assign each passenger a reservation number. As soon as Rock Legends Cruise receives the reservation numbers, an email will be sent out to all email addresses on file containing the reservation number for your cabin. All passengers in your cabin will be under the same reservation number (with the exception of cabins with five or more people, which will be assigned two registration numbers). Each passenger will need to go to www.royalcaribbean.com and complete their Online Check-in process. Here you will be able to register, print your e-documents, book excursions, etc., and print your SetSail Passes. Each passenger must register online with Royal Caribbean 4 days before the sail date.

Who May Sail
Please make sure that everyone in your stateroom is eligible to sail.
Infants who are at least 6 months old on the day of departure, may sail.
Women who will be less than 24 weeks into their pregnancy on the day of departure and for the duration of the cruise, may sail. This policy is due to the risk of premature labor. Pregnant women must have a letter from their doctor (on the physician’s letterhead) stating how far along (in weeks) their pregnancy will be at the beginning of the cruise, that mother and baby are in good health and fit to travel, and that the pregnancy is not high-risk.
Adults aged twenty-one or older may sail. The Cruise Line shall refuse boarding to any guest under the age of twenty-one unless the guest is:
- traveling in the same stateroom with an individual twenty-five years or older; or
- traveling in the same stateroom with their spouse (Proof of age and/or proof of marriage are required).
Guests not conforming to these policies will be denied boarding and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued. Sorry, there are NO EXCEPTIONS to these policies.
Proper travel documentation is required at embarkation and throughout the cruise and is the responsibility of the guest. Any guest traveling without proper documentation will not be allowed to board the vessel and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued. For further information see U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Rates are per person based on double occupancy and include the 4 night cruise fare, meals on board ship, entertainment and concert activities. The cost for third and fourth passengers sharing a stateroom with two full fare passengers will be as noted on the registration site under cabin information. Rates for the third and fourth guests are based on the additional passenger in the stateroom and not based on the age of the guest.
Fees (The following fees are included in your total stateroom cost and are not separate or additional charges.)
Port Charges, Taxes, Fees and Gratuities are $162 per person. Port Charges are comprised of U.S. Customs Fees, International Departure Taxes, and Non-Commissionable cruise line charges (government fees are subject to change). Gratuities are prepaid to your cabin steward, waiter, and busboy. This charge will be included on your statement from NAHA.
Taxes, fuel charges and fees are subject to change. In the event of an increase in port charges, taxes, or fuel costs, a surcharge will be applied to your shipboard account by the cruise line.
Transportation, transfers, optional cancellation insurance, shore excursions, any items of a personal nature such as laundry, gift shop, telephone calls, internet services and beverages not on the included menu (sodas, bottled water, alcohol, etc.), are not included in the cruise fare.
Advanced or Delayed Sailings
In the event of strike, lockouts, riots or stoppage of labor from whatever causes, or for any other reason whatsoever beyond the control of NAHA or Royal Caribbean, Royal Caribbean in its sole discretion may cancel, advance, or postpone any scheduled sailing or call at any port and may (but is not obligated to) substitute another vessel, and neither Royal Caribbean nor NAHA shall be liable for any loss whatsoever to passengers by reason of such cancellation, advancement, postponement, or substitution.
NAHA and/or its promotional partners have the exclusive right to include photographic, video and other visual portrayals of passengers in any medium of any nature whatsoever for the purpose of trade, advertising, sales, publicity or otherwise, without compensation to passengers, and all rights, title and interest therein (including all worldwide copyrights therein) shall be NAHA’s sole property, free from any claims by passengers or any person deriving any rights or interest from passenger.
In accordance with NAHA’s charter agreement with Royal Caribbean International, the Royal Caribbean Crown & Anchor program amenities are not available or applicable.
Due to the expected lack of children attendance at this event, NAHA may shut down several areas designated for children, i.e., teen bar, ice skating rink, etc., for band equipment.
All performances are festival style with general admission. NAHA will not guarantee you get to see a specific artist or meet them, but due to the multiple performances by each artist, it is our hope you will see the best shows of your life.
It is agreed by and between the passenger and NAHA that all disputes and matters whatsoever arising under, in connection with or incident to this Contract or the passenger’s cruise, shall be litigated, if at all, before the United States District Court of the state of Virginia, or as to those lawsuits to which the Federal Courts of the United States lack subject matter jurisdiction, before a court located in the state of Virginia, U.S.A. to the exclusion of the Courts of any other county, state or country.
