ShipBoard Etiquette

All Monsters of Rock Cruise guests are required to read and agree to the following Zero Tolerance Policy, as part of the Terms & Conditions (Passenger Ticket Contract) of their cruise:

Guest Behavior
On the Blue (“OTB”) and Royal Caribbean Cruise Line(“RCCL”) have adopted a Zero Tolerance Policy and will not permit behavior by any Monsters of Rock Cruise Passenger (“Passengers”) which negatively impacts the comfort, enjoyment, health, safety or well being of other Passengers, its’ performers and staff or the ship’s crew. In addition, violent, abusive or disrespectful behavior caused by the use of alcohol and/or an illegal substance shall not be tolerated. Passengers agree to comply with this policy, and further acknowledge that OTB and RCCL reserve the right to refuse or discontinue passage to any Passenger who, in OTB or RCCL’s sole judgment, is conducting himself or herself in a manner that adversely affects the cruise experience of other Passengers. This also includes spousal abuse or violence directed at a family member. In all cases, OTB and RCCL shall not be liable for any damages, refund or other compensation, including travel costs or any other claim as a result of such behavior.

Illegal Substances
OTB and RCCL have a “Zero Tolerance” policy regarding the use, possession or distribution of any and all illegal controlled substances by Passengers aboard the ship. Passengers agree to comply with this policy, and further acknowledge that any violation of this policy will result in disembarkation from the vessel, and Passengers acknowledges that it is OTB and RCCL’s policy to report incidents of illegal activity or behavior to the appropriate law enforcement authorities for appropriate legal action. In such cases, OTB and RCCL shall not be liable for any damages, refund or other compensation, including travel costs or any other claim as a result of such behavior.

Smoking
For the comfort and enjoyment of our guests, our ships are designated as non-smoking; however, we recognize that some of our guests do smoke. Therefore, to provide an onboard environment that also satisfies smokers, we have designated certain areas of the ship as smoking areas.

Cigarette, cigar, e-cigarette and pipe smoking is permitted in designated outdoor areas of the starboard side of all ships; with the exception of Oasis-class ships that will allow smoking on the port side of the ships. To assist in locating areas where smoking is permitted, guests will find visible signage posted within all smoking areas and ashtrays that are provided for use. Outdoor areas near restricted areas, food venues, and kids play areas and pools will not allow smoking. On Oasis class, smoking is not permitted in Central Park or the Boardwalk neighborhoods.

Casino Royale allows smoking and has a designated area for non-smoking guests. There will be visible signage indicating the non-smoking area in the casino. There are select cruises departing from China that will not have a non-smoking area in the casino.

Onboard all interior public spaces are smoke free*. Smoking is not permitted in any dining venue, theater, bar, lounge, hallway, elevator, and jogging track.

Smoking is not permitted inside any stateroom and any stateroom balcony. This applies to all stateroom categories onboard. If a guest is in violation of this stateroom policy, a cleaning fee of $250 USD will be applied to their SeaPass® account and may be subject to further action pursuant to the “Consequences Section” of the Guest Conduct Policy.

Cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco must be properly disposed of and never thrown overboard. Cigar and pipe tobacco is limited to designated outdoor areas and Cigar Bars**. You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase, possess or use tobacco onboard.

Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are only permitted within the designated smoking areas.

Royal Caribbean International kindly asks all guests to please observe the smoking policy. These requests are made to provide a comfortable cruise for everyone. Guest may also inquire at Guest Services for the location of the designated smoking areas onboard.

Guests who violate this smoking policy may be subject to further action pursuant to the “Consequences Section” of this Guest Conduct Policy.

Royal Caribbean updated the smoking policy September 2013 and the above policy is in enforcement on all ships with cruises departing on or after January 1, 2014.

Intentional Damage To The Vessel
OTB and RCCL have a “Zero Tolerance” policy regarding intentional damage to the vessel or accidental damage to the vessel as a result of general negligence, alcohol intoxication or the influence of an illegal substance. Passengers causing any such damage agree to pay for identified damage prior to disembarking the vessel. All passengers must agree to comply with this policy, and further acknowledge that any violation of this policy may result in disembarkation from the vessel, and all passengers acknowledge that it is OTB and RCCL’s policy to report incidents of illegal activity or behavior to the appropriate law enforcement authorities for appropriate legal action. In such cases OTB and RCCL shall not be liable for any damages, refund or other compensation, including travel costs or any other claim as a result of such behavior.

All OTB Passengers agree to sign and acknowledge this Zero tolerance policy prior to receiving their OTB event credentials. Failure to sign shall result in immediate disembarkation from vessel.
