  • Safety and responsibility

    In the event that a passenger behaves in a way that is prejudicial to other passengers, AML Cruises reserves the right to refuse boarding due to his or her behavior (drunkenness or other), without compensation. The passenger will have to assume all the expenses caused by his conduct.

    The passenger recognizes that the cruise offered by AML Cruises involves risks of injury, loss or breakage of equipment, which risks are inherent to navigation on the St. Lawrence River and to weather conditions. Passengers must therefore play an active role in risk management by adopting a preventive and cautious approach. Passengers must pay attention to the safety instructions given by the crew members and to the pictograms posted on the ships and respect them at all times.

    AML Cruises may cancel, interrupt or postpone a cruise in case of force majeure, or because the cruise would be rendered unsafe, illegal or impossible, in which case the liability of AML Cruises cannot exceed the reimbursement of the cost of the cruise.

    The departure and arrival times of a cruise, the itinerary and the type of ship are subject to change without notice. AML Cruises offers no compensation for inconvenience or loss of time resulting from such changes.

    Departure on a cruise is conditional on the seaworthiness of the ship due to extreme temperatures, ice and mechanical breakdowns that may occur. In the event of unseaworthiness, we will offer, to each client holding a ticket for the cruise that cannot take place, a gift certificate allowing them to take a cruise during the present and/or next season. This certificate, worth a maximum of $49.99, will allow the customer to take a day or evening cruise on one of our ships (excluding fireworks, special events and meal cruises).

    AML Cruises is not responsible for the loss or theft of objects or luggage on board the ship. By accepting a ticket, the holder accepts the above conditions as well as the conditions stipulated on the ticket.

  • Special events

    If a ticket is issued for the purpose of an activity (e.g. "International des Feux Loto-Québec", "Cruises and Circus", etc.) and the activity does not take place at the scheduled time due to cancellation or postponement, the cruise will take place and the refund, if applicable, will be limited to the portion of the price pertinent to the activity, so that the portion of the price applicable to the cruise and service charges is retained by AML Cruises.

    If the ticket is issued for the purpose of a cruise and/or activity for which AML Cruise is not the promoter, AML Cruises assumes no liability in the event of cancellation or postponement of the cruise and/or activity.  In this regard, passengers waive all claims against AML Cruises, its employees and agents.
