5.0 BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, CLASS ACTION WAIVER, AND WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS.
YOU AND MARGARITAVILLE AT SEA® EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PASS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, WITH THE SOLE EXCEPTION OF CLAIMS THAT QUALIFY FOR SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS SET FORTH BELOW.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND MARGARITAVILLE AT SEA® ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT AND THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. YOU AND MARGARITAVILLE AT SEA® ALSO AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES. YOU AND MARGARITAVILLE AT SEA® THEREFORE AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO LITIGATE OR ARBITRATE ANY CLAIMS AS A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE ACTION.
Neither you nor Margaritaville at Sea® may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim in any state or federal court. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or Margaritaville at Sea® individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR MARGARITAVILLE AT SEA® WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
The arbitrator will have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the formation, interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of these terms and conditions including this binding arbitration provision, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of this binding arbitration provision is void or voidable. However, if Margaritaville at Sea® believes that any claim you have filed in arbitration or in court is inconsistent with this agreement’s limitation on class and representative actions, then you agree that we may seek an order from a court determining whether your claim is within the scope of the class action waiver.
In the event of a dispute, you agree to send a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth your name, address, and contact information; the facts giving rise to the dispute and relevant documents; and the relief requested to Margaritaville at Sea® at 431 Fairway Drive, Suite 300, Deerfield Beach, FL 33441, Attention: Kevin Sheehan. Margaritaville at Sea® will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information that they have for you. You and Margaritaville at Sea® agree to attempt to resolve the dispute through good-faith negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After that sixty (60) day period and not before, you or Margaritaville at Sea® may commence an arbitration or small-claims-court proceeding.
You or Margaritaville at Sea® may assert claims in small claims court instead of in arbitration if the claims qualify. Additionally, if the claims asserted in any request or demand for arbitration could have been brought in small claims court, then either you or Margaritaville at Sea® may elect to have the claims heard in small claims court, rather than in arbitration, at any time before the arbitrator is appointed, by notifying the other party of that election in writing. Any dispute about whether a claim qualifies for small claims court shall be resolved by that court, not by an arbitrator. In the event of any such dispute, the arbitration proceeding shall remain closed unless and until a decision by the small claims court that the claim should proceed in arbitration.
If Margaritaville at Sea® and you do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration before a single neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final. Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under the AAA’s rules, which are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-788-7879. Payment of all filing, administrative and arbitrator fees and costs will be governed by the AAA’s rules. You are required to pay the AAA’s initial filing fee if you initiate the dispute, but Margaritaville at Sea® will reimburse you for this filing fee at the conclusion of the arbitration to the extent it exceeds the fee for filing a complaint in a federal or state court in your county (or parish) of residence. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules, and Margaritaville at Sea® will not reimburse your initial filing fee and may seek applicable fee-shifting. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone or online, will take place in Palm Beach County, Florida; provided, however, that if circumstances prevent you from traveling to Palm Beach County, Florida, AAA may hold an in-person hearing in your hometown area. Margaritaville at Sea® and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in Palm Beach County, Florida to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim. The substantive law of Florida shall apply in the arbitration proceedings.
Except as provided above with respect to jurisdiction in Palm Beach County, Florida, nothing in this arbitration provision shall be construed as consent by Margaritaville at Sea® to the jurisdiction of any other court with regard to disputes, claims or controversies unrelated to this agreement.
This agreement to binding arbitration evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, governs its interpretation and enforcement. This agreement to binding arbitration will survive its termination. If any portion of this agreement to binding arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall nevertheless remain in force.
This Pass Binding Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver governs any dispute or claim relating to your Pass; to the extent there is a conflict between this Pass Binding Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver and any dispute resolution provision of any other applicable terms, conditions or agreements, this Pass Binding Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver governs.
Limitation on Time to File Claims
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE PARADISE PASS TERMS AND CONDITIONS MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
