◆Article 8 (Change of Ship, Time or Place of Arrival and Departure, or Passage, and Postponement)

1. If it becomes extremely difficult to operate the ship according to a schedule due to any reasons set forth in items of Article 6, then another ship may be used, or the time or place of arrival and departure, or passage may be changed. In this case, the place of arrival and departure may be also changed, or the time of arrival and departure may be put off. Please make a schedule with enough time to spare for a cruise, and secure enough time for the scheduled cruise time in preparation for any putting-off of arrival and departure by also thoroughly instructing all your participants about this. When the place of arrival and departure is changed, you will bear the transportation expenses to the place.

2. If it becomes extremely difficult to depart due to any reason set forth in the items of Article 6, the Company may consult with a customer to determine the postponed date as soon as the Company becomes aware of it. However, if postponement renders the purpose of using the Cruising Service unattainable (if the conduct under paragraph 1 is also unavailable), the Company will return the full amount of the fee paid by the customer within one week from the date of cancellation. When it is indispensable to conduct the service on the day itself, and conducting the service on shore is acceptable, the Company will, so far as feasible, propose and arrange the onshore venue on the customer’s behalf (we are not able to always secure an onshore venue).

◆Article 10 (Points to Note)

1. To avoid being a nuisance to the surrounding facilities etc., a customer will enjoy the cruise with the sound volume of any equipment, whether provided by us or brought in by the customer, within the limitation specified by us. The sound volume on board and outboard is subject to limitation due to the engine noise of the ship. Please note that the Company will under no circumstances be responsible for the impact of the engine noise.

2. As the Company is unable to put off the time of departure for a customer who comes late to the place of departure due to traffic congestion or disruption to train services, please come to the place with time to spare. Even if the departure is delayed, the scheduled return time to port will not be changed. If the time is extended, an additional charge may arise. However, for some piers or ships, when you consult us in advance, the time of departure may be put off, or we may wait for the person who comes late by returning ashore to the pier or by staying at the pier.

2. The Company will in no way be responsible for any accident or other dispute between a customer and our contractor or an officer/employee of our contractor arising during the conduct of the Cruising Service, unless it is caused due to any reason attributable to us.
