The Canadian government recently issued an interim order limiting cruise services in 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. To ensure that guests who had previously purchased cruise tickets were still able to travel, Frost Brown Todd assisted the client to quickly develop a reciprocal voucher program with an affiliate American cruise line whereby guests on Canadian cruises could exchange their tickets for a voucher for an American cruise.
Frost Brown Todd’s Insurance Regulation and Risk Management team collaborated to draft a contract outlining the terms of the voucher agreement between the Canadian and American cruise lines so that passengers adversely affected by the Canadian order could exchange their tickets for a voucher quickly and easily.
Frost Brown Todd’s sense of urgency and teamwork proved beneficial to the client. The Canadian order was issued Feb. 4, 2021, and a contract between the involved cruise lines was ready for signing Feb. 5, 2021, making it easy for passengers to enjoy the benefits of the voucher program.
