A cruise charter was rented for a party. Boat had engine

Customer Question

A cruise charter was rented for a party. Boat had engine trouble (first time in over 12 years) and was docked disembarking all passengers safely, thus avoiding a possible disaster. Monies were reimbursed in total. Should the cruise skipper/owner/company now have to pay further compensation because the birthday party was ruined?

Good Afternoon

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

What does the agreement say that was signed?

What are the passengers asking for?

Customer: replied 27 days ago.
Not sure about the signed agreement. Passengers won't say what they term as "compensation".
Expert:  Leon replied 27 days ago.

You have to look at what they signed.

Do not offer anything to them unless they ask and then you know what they want.
