Dillon was a passenger on a cruise ship (the “Mikhail Lermontov”). 3 Cases that have held that the CLA applied to a contractual claim for damages for disappointment and distress have been determined in New South Wales (‘NSW’).

As Lord Denning MR, said in Thornton v Shoe Lane Parking Ltd [1971] 2 QB 163, at p 170: It is no use telling the customer that the ticket is issued subject to some "conditions" or other, without more: for he may reasonably regard "conditions" in general as merely regulatory, and not as taking away his rights unless the exempting condition is drawn specifically to his attention. Although, as I have held the contract of carriage was made on Dec. 6, 1985 prior to the issue of the ticket, contrary to the assertions made in the booking form, it is necessary to consider whether the provisions of the booking form had the effect of introducing into the contract the ticket terms and conditions.

It would not be reasonable to treat the appellant's right to retain the fare as conditional upon complete performance when the appellant is under a liability to provide substantial benefits to the respondent during the course of the voyage. In Steele v Tardiani,[6] Dixon J. cited the general proposition stated in Edward Vaughan Williams's Notes to Saunders:[7], "Where the consideration for the payment of money is entire and indivisible, as where the benefit expected by the defendant under the agreement is to result from the enjoyment of every part of the consideration jointly, so that the money payable is neither apportioned by the contract, nor capable of being apportioned by a jury, no action is maintainable, if any part of the consideration has failed; for, being entire, by failing partially, it fails altogether."[6]. 26. Damages for such non-pecuniary losses are not normally awarded. 9. Nothing said here is inconsistent with McRae v Commonwealth Disposals Commission.[60]. 17. See Fay per Mr. Justice Brennan at p. 402.

First, restitution of the contractual consideration removes, at least notionally, the basis on which the plaintiff is entitled to call on the defendant to perform his or her contractual obligations. [34] To the extent that it is necessary to say so, this decision correctly reflects the law in Australia and, to the extent that it is inconsistent, should be preferred to the decision of this Court in In re Continental C and G Rubber Co Proprietary Ltd.[35] The action evolved from the writ of indebitatus assumpsit. See, (1760) 2 Burr 1005, at p 1008 (97 ER 676, at p 678), (1602) 4 Co Rep 92b (76 ER 1074); also reported as Slade v. Morley Yelv 21 (80 ER 15), MooKB 433 (72 ER 677). Judge Carruthers J . This means, similarly to Mason's conclusion, that damages for non-pecuniary losses are available in contracts whose object is to provide enjoyment, pleasure or freedom from distress or where the distress is consequence upon the suffering of physical inconvenience. For the sake of completeness reference should be made to the following statement in the brochure: All bookings are subject to CTC Cruises' terms and conditions. If the payee is so required then, unless the contract manifests a contrary intention, it would be unreasonable to hold that the payee's right to retain the payment is conditional upon performance of the contractual obligations.[22]. 18. When, however, an innocent party seeks to recover money paid in advance under a contract in expectation of the entire performance by the contract-breaker of its obligations under the contract and the contract-breaker renders an incomplete performance, in general, the innocent party cannot recover unless there has been a total failure of consideration. In this Court, the appellant contends that the majority in the Court of Appeal erred in holding that the respondent was entitled to restitution of the whole of the fare. He continued: "If the plaintiff elects to proceed in this favourable way (on the indebitatus assumpsit ), it is a bar to his bringing another action upon the agreement; though he might recover more upon the agreement, than he can by this form of action. 110–111) disappeared in the middle ages. [23] The result of this rule is that an advance on account of freight may be retained, notwithstanding that, because of a failure to complete the voyage and to deliver the goods, the freight remains unearned[24] and that a payment due as an advance on account of freight is recoverable (if not duly paid) even after frustration of the voyage.[25]. In that context, there was little room for restitutionary obligation imposed by law except as a "quasi-contractual" appendix to the law of contract.

A widow, Mrs Joan Dillon, bought a cruise from a charterer's travel brochure on the cruise ship MS Mikhail Lermontov (named after the Russian poet, Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov). [5] Kirby P. held that the clause, while it could exclude the right to restitution in certain circumstances, was inapplicable for two reasons: first, the clause was not incorporated into the contract of carriage; secondly, by reason of the admission of negligence by the appellant, the reason for the impossibility of continuation of the voyage was not "beyond the control" of the appellant and, therefore, a precondition of its operation was not satisfied. Carruthers J. held that the contract of passage was an entire one,[2]:667 and said: "In reality, the plaintiff got no benefit from this contract. And she is entitled to recover as well damages for negligence.

Thereupon the plaintiff was entitled to the production by the defendant of a ticket which would enable her to board the vessel. In the light of the decided cases, I do not consider that the conclusion is open on the facts of this case, that sufficient was done to bring to the notice of the plaintiff, before the fare was paid, the limitation clauses contained in the ticket terms and conditions.

I would therefore conclude that, even if the respondent had an entitlement to recover the cruise fare, Carruthers J. and the majority of the Court of Appeal erred in allowing restitution of the balance of the fare along with damages for breach of contract. 2 Baltic Shipping Co v Dillon (1993) 176 CLR 344 (per curiam) (‘Baltic Shipping’). The consequences of this conclusion will be considered below in light of the conclusion to be reached with regard to the award of damages for disappointment and distress. Conclusion: the respondent cannot recover the fare and damages for breach of contract, 30. The action was, as Lord Mansfield said in Moses v Macferlan,[44] "quasi ex contractu" and founded on an obligation imposed by law and accommodated within the system of formal pleading by means of the fictitious assumpsit or promise. In order to illustrate the magnitude of the step which the respondent asks the Court to take, it is sufficient to pose two questions, putting to one side cl.9 of the printed ticket terms and conditions. ...where an exemption clause is contained in a ticket or other document intended by the carrier to contain the terms of carriage, yet the other party is not in fact aware when the contract is made that an exemption clause is intended to be a term of the contract, the carrier cannot rely on that clause unless at the time of the contract the carrier had done all that was reasonably necessary to bring the clause to the passenger's notice.

The question whether an advance payment, not being a deposit or earnest of performance, is absolute or conditional is one of construction. I agree with the judge that there is a good analogy to Sir George Jessel MR's statement in Re Hall and Barker:[4] '...If a shoemaker agrees to make a pair of shoes, he cannot offer you one shoe, and ask you to pay one half of the price.'"[3]:26.

A widow, Mrs Joan Dillon, bought a cruise from a charterer's travel brochure on the cruise ship MS Mikhail Lermontov (named after the Russian poet, Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov).
