Passenger Code of Conduct
Land Touring: During all land tours it is the guest’s responsibility to stay with the group. While visiting ancient villages and cities it is important to stay together as a group as winding passages and small streets can make it very easy to get separated. If a guest wants to walk around on his or her own, spend additional time at specific points of interest, shop, or in any other way separate from their group, it is the guest’s responsibility to inform the tour leader that they plan to leave the group and tell the tour leader that they will return to the ship or bus on their own at the designated time. If the guest does not return to the bus or meeting point at the designated time, it is then their responsibility to return to the ship on their own prior to the ship’s departure time which is published in the daily schedule left each night in your cabin. The schedule of our ships are highly structured and cannot, nor will not wait for any guest who is not on board at the scheduled departure time. If a guest misses a departure, it is the guest’s personal and financial responsibility to meet the ship at its next port of call.
Guest Behavior: We require all guests to treat fellow guests, Costa Rica Deluxe Travel staff, and ship’s staff with dignity and respect. If a problem arises, your staff will do its best to resolve it. Guests will be expected to conduct themselves in a mature manner while the problem is being addressed. Guests who do not conduct themselves in an appropriate and mature manner and become physically or verbally abusive (to guests or staff) will be asked to leave the cruise at their own expense.
