Indemnity Waiver
By attending this cruise, I fully assume the dangers and risks in participating in this activity and agree to use my best judgment while engaging in these activities. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the organiser from and against any and all liability incurred as a result of or in any manner related to my participation in the activities.

If I have elected to have the travel agent organise another passenger to share a room with me, I acknowledge that the organisers and travel agent are not responsible for the safety of my belongings or the enjoyment of the event as a result of this allocated room sharing.

Photographic release: I hereby consent to and authorize the use and reproduction of any and all photography and/or videography that has been taken of me during this event for any purpose, and the publishing of this on the http://www.redhatsvictoria.com website, Red Hats Victoria and Australian Hatters facebook pages – without compensation to me.

Please book through our group booking (by sending the registration to Queen Obsidian) rather than booking privately through your own travel agent!  Only bookings made through our group booking will count towards our extra benefits, which are calculated based on the total number of cabins we have in our group booking. So booking with us benefits everyone as it increases our cabin numbers and thus our benefits.

If you have any questions and would like to talk to a travel agent, I can put you in touch with our travel agent who is happy to discuss anything with you. If you have future cruise deposits already paid, they can be used for this cruise. You can talk to your local agent to ask questions, but please make the booking through me.

If you choose to book the cruise privately through your own travel agent, please send in your name, phone, email address and cabin number – as without this we cannot easily communicate or make arrangements.
