Our Dress Code

Money Matters

Most foreign currencies are accepted onboard at prevailing exchange rates. Most major credit cards (Visa/MasterCard/CUP/JCB/Amex/Diners) are accepted, along with travellers cheques, but not personal cheques.


Physically Challenged Guests

Most areas onboard our vessels are accessible to the physically challenged. There are also specially equipped cabins with wider doorways and larger bathrooms with grab bars and folding shower seats. The ship also provides wheelchairs for emergency purposes.


Guests who are unable to take a few steps without assistance from a supportive device will be unable to board the tenders* to go ashore. Please note that collapsible wheelchairs are allowed, but the guest must be independently mobile to board and exit the tenders. Crew members are there to assist, but they cannot support, carry or lift guests on board the tender for safety reasons.


If guests are unable to tender or disembark due to the above circumstances, there will be no refund or credit for missed ports. While we recognize your disappointment, the safety of both guests and crew takes precedence.


*Tender is a small boat used to transfer passengers from ship to shore when the ship is at anchor.



For your comfort and convenience, we recommend that each guest take no more than one suitcase and one hand baggage onboard. These must fit comfortably in your cabin as no baggage will be stored in the ship's hold. Your total baggage weight is suggested not more than 30kg*.

*Total baggage weight varies from vessel to vessel.
