You book a cruise and pay the money. You pay the final amount months in advance to your cruise. The cruiseline earns the interest on your money. You pass the 60 day cancellation policy and at this point you still have not entered into a contract with the cruiseline.
You finally get your documents 2 weeks before your cruise. You read the documents and decide that you don't want to travel under this contract because it limits the cruiseline's liability in the event of their negligence. However, you can't get your money back because your beyond the cancellation deadline.
Hmmmmmm...................doesn't sound like fair business practices to me!
Thanks for the info Hanna.
