ARAG experts have collected and presented legal tips for cruises from the judgments available. We quote from this:
The LG Bremen has decided under Ref .: 1 O 1335/01 that vacationers are not automatically entitled to a reduction in the travel price if a cruise ship cannot meet all the planned stops of the cruise due to adverse conditions.
The situation is different if the passenger cannot get on his ship because it cannot call at a port of destination.
In the following case, the AG Munich decided under reference number: 262 C 1373/09 to reduce the travel price. Stockholm was on the agenda. The ship anchored about 60 km from Stockholm. Those guests who wanted to see Stockholm had to take a paid bus into the city.
