The waiver pertains to liability of injury while dancing. Dancing on a stage is dangerous because of lighting conditions, and cruise ship stages are especially dangerous because of the added motion of the ship. Injuries to cruise ship dancers are fairly common, and the waiver is to safeguard the company against lawsuits. The dancer does however have insurance to cover medical expenses. If the ship sinks, the dancer is used as a floatation device. If we are adrift at sea for more than two days, the dancer can be used for food. In all seriousness, the dancer has as much chance in the middle of the ocean as any other person for survival. There are enough life boats for all crew and passengers -- dancers and all.
