  • In consideration of the late times and the type of party itself, the galleon New Year's Eve dinner is not suitable for children: their participation is not recommended since there are no areas on board to play or rest.

  • If the fireworks display is not staged due to cancellation by the municipality of Venice, force majeure, legal provisions or in any case for reasons beyond the control of the organization, the event on board the galleon will still be confirmed.

  • There will be no refunds in case of impossibility to start or continue navigation, after guests have boarded the Galleon and/or after the start of the event/dinner, due to technical reasons such as breakdowns, adverse weather and sea conditions, closure of ports following orders of the competent Authorities and/or force majeure circumstances independent of the will of the Captain and the organization.

In exceptional cases and/or reasons of force majeure (i.e. acts of nature, strikes, exceptional closures,serious unexpected events or health problems experienced by the person in charge with the service after which it is really impossible to find a substitute) the service you booked might be cancelled.
