I just checked the DCL website for the Balitic cruise. The message for the shore excursions has changed to: Please note that all Port Adventures are operated by local independent contractors. While shore excursions are exciting and fun, we do remind our Guests that we are not responsible for any injury or property damage/loss that may occur in connection with Port Adventures. All Port Adventure tickets are non-refundable and pricing is subject to change without notice. Bear in mind that excursions themselves are also subject to change due to weather conditions. For the safety and enjoyment of you and your family, some Port Adventures have age restrictions, and children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Nothing else but we must be getting close!
