This cookie statement tells you which types of cookies we use and why, and explains your rights to control them.
Cookies are small data files which are stored on your computer by your browser or your mobile device when you visit a website. They are used to record how you interact with our website and allow us to gather information which helps to improve it.
Which cookies do we use?
We use both ‘first-party’ and ‘third-party’ cookies. First-party cookies are set by us and we use them and the data they gather for our own purposes. Third-party cookies are set by other websites that are connected to our website, for example where we display a button to share content to a social network (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest and Twitter). These third parties can recognise your computer or device when you visit our website and also elsewhere on the internet.
We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons.
Finally, from time to time, we allow third parties to place their cookies on our website for other reasons, such as to advertise or gather information.
The different types of cookies we use
Strictly necessary cookies
These are cookies we need to make our website work; they can't be switched off. They’re usually only set when you request something via our website, such as setting your privacy preferences or filling in a form. These cookies don’t store any information that could personally identify you.
You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but this will disable some parts of our website.
These cookies are used to store your preferences on how you prefer to use our website. For example which content you enjoy the most or which cruise lines you might have a preference for, based on your use of our website. We use these cookies to make our website work better for you.
These cookies are not used to target you and do not collect any personal information. Not allowing these cookies prevents us from knowing you’ve visited our website and also changes the experience of our website for you as a visitor.
Some of our performance cookies are provided by Google Analytics. You can find out more about how Google Analytics uses your data here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en
We use these cookies to provide tools and functionality for you on our website and to offer you a more personalised browsing experience. They might be set by us or by a third-party who appears on our website.
Not allowing these cookies could stop our website working fully for you.
Our advertising partners might set these cookies to build a profile of your interests, so they can show you relevant adverts on other websites you visit elsewhere on the internet.
These cookies don’t store your personal information, but they do identify your browser and the device you’re using to browse. Not allowing these cookies will mean you’re shown less relevant advertising as you browse the internet (though bear in mind that you will still see adverts - they just won’t be tailored to your interests).
How can I control cookies?
When you visit our website, you can decide whether to accept cookies or not. You can also control cookies by using your browser settings. Web browser settings do vary but your browser’s help menu will help you find out more about how to control cookies. The main browsers are Chrome, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Firefox although there are many more. Regardless of which browser you use, if you reject all cookies, it might result in our website no longer working fully for you.
