the scheduled cruise or any activities related to the cruise, including without limitation shore excursions
and port visits. Although Carrier endeavors to provide reasonable protection for Your comfort and safety
onboard its ships, Carrier cannot guarantee freedom from all risks associated with war, terrorism, crime or
other potential sources of harm. Carrier reminds all Passengers that they must ultimately assume
