In any other case including without limitation any breach of contract or failure to perform by any artist or musician, Guest and EDV acknowledge that Guest’s actual losses arising from such breach, cancellation or termination would be difficult if not impossible to calculate at the time of entry into this Agreement.

For the performances by the Whiskeybelles to be included on this cruise, a minimum number of cabins sold within this cruise group, also knows as the WBC, must be sold. If the minimum number of cabins is not sold, the
performances and attendance by the Whiskeybelles on the cruise will be cancelled. If the performances are cancelled because of the minimum sales not achieved, then each guest booked on the WBC shall be entitled to the sum of $50.00 representing a pro-rated amount of the entertainment portion of the consideration paid by Guest. No Guest shall be entitled to recover any incidental or consequential losses or damages sustained by him or her. Each Guest agrees this remedy shall be his or her exclusive remedy.
