This Privacy Policy explains how Concert Cruise Events / The Old School Cruise (“we,” “us,” “our,” “Concert Cruise Events”) collects, uses, shares, and protects information both in connection with our online and offline services, systems, websites, and apps that refer or link to this Privacy Policy (our “Services”), and as explained below, including without limitation, the collection and processing of personal information in connection with bookings and travel on Concert Cruise Events or ship charters operated by our partner cruise lines (for example, Royal Caribbean International and Carnival Cruise Lines), as well as loyalty data collected and processed. This Privacy Policy applies regardless of the way you interact with our Services or the type of device or other means you use to access our Services.

Concert Cruise Events reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the updated Policy here along with the date on which the Policy was changed. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy that affect the way we collect, use and/or share your personal information, we will notify you by including a “NEWLY UPDATED” label with the “PRIVACY POLICY” link on for 30 days after material changes are made. This Privacy Policy is not a contract and does not create any contractual rights or obligations.

When we use the term ‘personal information,’ we are referring to information that identifies, relates to, describes, or can be associated with you, including the categories and specific types of information described in this Privacy Policy.

We collect and maintain personal information about you from many sources to understand and meet your needs, facilitate your travel, manage our business, and for other purposes disclosed to you. For example, we collect personal information about you from:

  • You, when you voluntarily provide us with information
  • Your transactions with Concert Cruise Events
  • Other third-party sources, such as travel agents, law enforcement agencies, cruise lines and travel and hospitality service providers (e.g., transportation or tour operators).

If the information is to be collected directly from you, you may in some cases have the option to decline providing that information. However, your choice to not provide information may impact your use of certain features or services.

The personal information we collect about you through these various sources may include, but is not limited to:

  • General information about you, including name, title, gender, date of birth, nationality, and country of residence
  • Contact information, including addresses and telephone numbers, email addresses, fax numbers, pager numbers, and social media handles
  • Travel information, including:

      • Concert Cruise Events creates a record for each booking that involves travel on Concert Cruise Events, including whether you booked your cruise on our website, over the phone or through another sales channel (such as a travel agency)
      • Concert Cruise Events will also collect information about changes to your booking, including a cancellation or failure to complete your travel, upgrades, requests, etc.
      • If you book travel for someone else, Concert Cruise Events may collect your billing information but may communicate with the passenger directly about their Concert Cruise Event
    • other information required to facilitate travel services, such as requests for assistance, dietary restrictions, interactions with staff and cabin crew, travel companion name(s), emergency contacts, photographs, information about your prior cruises and travel-related issues
  • Payment information, including credit or debit card number(s), associated billing address(es), and expiration date(s)
  • Sensitive information, Some examples of this type of information include:
    • You have sought clearance from us to travel with a medical condition or device
    • You have otherwise chosen to provide such information to us or it has been passed onto us by a third party, such as the travel agent through which you made your booking or other entity, including information about whether you have symptoms of a communicable disease or virus (such as COVID-19), an appropriate vaccination, or a negative test result
  • Digital identity credentials, including credentials linked to vaccination status or negative test results that you provide for specific purposes, such as compliance with customs and immigration requirements during international travel or services in which you choose to participate

To the extent that the personal information we collect constitutes sensitive personal information under applicable law, Concert Cruise Events will collect and process this sensitive personal information within the limits provided by applicable law. Where required by law, and where no other lawful bases exist for processing such data (such as to fulfill laws promoting a substantial public interest), Concert Cruise Events will seek your specific consent before processing sensitive personal information.

You may submit a request for services (such as a meal preference, or a request for wheelchair assistance) which is not sensitive personal information. Concert Cruise Events does not consider such data to reliably imply or suggest sensitive personal information.

Concert Cruise Events does not knowingly collect personal information directly from children – persons under the age of 13, or another age if required by applicable law – other than when required to comply with the law or for safety and security reasons. Due to the nature of our Services, we may collect travel information, which may include personal information, about children when it is required to comply with the law, including security regulations, as otherwise required to provide transportation needs and services, or for safety or security reasons. We may retain personal information when required to provide transportation and related services to a child, or in connection with services purchased or enrolled by the parent or guardian on the child’s behalf.

If you are a parent or guardian of a child who has provided personal information without your knowledge and consent, you may request we remove this child’s information by emailing


When you use our Services, we may receive technical information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, your geolocation, the name of your internet service provider, mobile advertising identifiers, and pages visited on our Services. Concert Cruise Events gets this information by using technologies, including cookies, web beacons, and mobile device geolocation to provide and improve our Services and advertising, including across browsers and devices (also known as cross-device linking). We also use this information to verify that visitors meet the criteria required to process their requests and for reporting activity on our Services. For example, we may want to know how long the average user spends on our Services or which pages or features get the most attention. This technical information may be combined with information that is personally identifiable in order to personalize our Services and advertising to your interests, including across browsers and devices. For example, if you spend time reviewing a particular flight or destination but do not complete a travel reservation, we may use this information to show you targeted advertising about concert cruise events or destinations on our Services or on third-party websites. Some of this information may be shared with third parties, as described in the section titled “Information collected by third parties on our Services.”

Additionally, and with your specific consent where required by law, Concert Cruise Events may combine the information we receive from you with information collected from other sources. This information may be used to provide offers and / or services specifically tailored to your interests in accordance with applicable laws.

When you use our Services, we and third parties on our Services may automatically receive information using tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, and similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies”). This information includes your browser type, IP address, type of operating system you use, the name of your internet service provider, mobile advertising identifiers, and pages visited on our Services.

We use Cookies for a variety of reasons, including to provide and improve our Services and advertising and to show you advertising that is relevant to you, including across browsers and devices (also known as cross-device linking). Some Cookies are necessary to keep our Services secure. Others make sure you get a high-quality experience and receive relevant advertising.

Some of our Services include social network or other third-party plug-ins (such as Facebook’s “Like” button) that enable you to log in to certain Services, to comment on content available on our Services, and to share things you find on our Services with your social network. The providers of these plug-ins may be able to collect information about you even if you do not click on or otherwise interact with the plug-in or widget and regardless of whether you have an account or other relationship with these social networks and third parties. If you use social network tools or visit social networking sites, you should read their privacy disclosures to learn what information they collect, use, and share.

The cookie stores a small amount of data on your device about your visit to the Services. Some Cookies are “session cookies,” which expire at the end of the browser session and can capture your activities during the browser session.

What Cookies do we use?

1. Essential Cookies:

These Cookies enable you to use our Services. These Cookies are essential to enable you to browse our Services and use certain features you have specifically requested. Disabling them may prevent you from using certain parts of the Services. For example, without these Cookies, services such as shopping activity and paying activity cannot be provided. These types of Cookies allow us to:

  • record that you are logged into your account;
  • record when you give consent to our use of Cookies, when applicable;
  • provide products and service to you and manage transactions, including enabling the Services you use to remember the items that you add to your shopping cart or the information you provided in forms;
  • display the product reviews that you submit to us; and
  • provide the necessary security the Services require, for example, to monitor traffic flow and visits in order to let us know of potential security threats (e.g., in case of unusually high or rapid traffic).

We want you to understand these essential Cookies, and why we use them, but your consent is not required for us to use them as we use these Cookies only to provide you with services that you have requested.

2. Preference Cookies:

These Cookies store information such as your preferred country and language selection, Concert Cruise Events login data and website preferences. Without these Cookies, our Services may not be able to remember certain choices you’ve previously made (such as a saved country / language preference) or personalize your browsing experience by providing you with relevant information (such as saved reservation preferences). These Cookies can recognize your device and offer you a more personal experience so that you do not have to provide the same information more than once. We also use these Cookies to enable you to comment on a discussion in a forum or provide enhanced services such as enabling you to view a video on our website. Disabling these Cookies means that you will be asked to reenter this information every time you use our Services.

3. Performance Cookies:

These Cookies collect information about how you use our Services such as which pages you visit regularly. They allow us to understand:

  • which device and/or website you come from;
  • which of our Services and their functions you use most often so that we can use this information to improve their functionality;
  • your preferences to ensure that more relevant content (including advertising content) is delivered to you;
  • page load and site response times; and
  • if you get error messages.

4. Content / advertising Cookies:

These cookies gather information about your use of our Services so we may improve your experience and provide you with more relevant content and advertising. They are also used to gather feedback on customer satisfaction through surveys. They remember that you’ve visited our Services and help us understand usage of our Services and tailor advertisements to you. These Cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Some of these Cookies are from third parties that collect information about users of our Services (as described in the section titled “Online behavioral advertising / interest-based advertising”) in order to provide advertising (on our Services and elsewhere) based on users’ online activities (so-called “interest-based advertising”) on our Services and elsewhere online.

Online behavioral advertising / interest-based advertising

Online behavioral advertising, also known as interest-based advertising, is a way of serving advertisements on the websites you visit and making them more relevant to you and your interests. The third parties involved in interest-based advertising collect internet browsing information (e.g., websites visited, time of visit) across different websites and over time, and they may use the information they collect on our Services to provide you ads (from us and other companies) across the internet. This may include anonymized or de-identified information about you, such as travel destinations that you search for while using our Services. These third parties may use the information they collect on our Services to make predictions about your interests in order to provide you ads (from us and other companies) across the internet (for example, travel products and services that are available at a destination you searched for online). Some of these third parties may participate in an industry organization that gives users the opportunity to opt out of receiving ads that are tailored based on online activities.

To opt out of interest-based advertising across browsers and devices, please opt out through the Digital Advertising Alliance or Network Advertising Initiative website and also through the settings within the mobile app or your mobile device. Your opt-out choice may apply only to the browser or device you are using when you opt out, so you should opt out on each of your browsers and devices if you want to disable all cross-device linking for interest-based advertising. If you opt out, you will still receive ads but they may not be as relevant to you and your interests. Concert Cruise Events’s websites do not honor web browsers’ Do-Not-Track signals.

Please note that opting out of interest-based advertising does not mean that you will no longer receive advertisements. Instead, the advertising you do see will likely be less relevant to your interests. Due to differences between using apps and websites on mobile devices, you may need to take additional steps to disable targeted ad technologies in mobile apps. Many mobile devices allow you to opt out of targeted advertising for mobile apps using the settings within the mobile app or your mobile device. For more information, please check your mobile settings. You also may uninstall our apps using the standard uninstall process available on your mobile device or app marketplace.

Legal requirements

For example, Concert Cruise Events and other chartered cruise events comply with legal obligations in the United States (U.S.), United Kingdom (UK), member states of the European Union, Uruguay, Brazil (BR), and other countries to provide border control agencies and customs authorities with access to booking and travel data when you travel to and from such countries, including stopover or layover destinations or countries that you may overfly en route to your destination.
