What Not To Pack

We know that packing for a holiday can be hard. We’re making it just that little bit easier. The following items are NOT permitted:

Explosives, fireworks, guns, knives or weapons of any kind, illicit substances, flammable liquids, remote control devices of any kind, including drones and any item that is prohibited by law.

Safety first

We make sure all our cruises are as safe as possible. All luggage will be security screened for drugs and alcohol as well as dangerous items at embarkation. If you have any alcohol in your bag it will be collected at embarkation and returned to you at the end of your cruise. We reserve the right to deny boarding or to disembark any persons in possession of illicit substances. Dangerous articles such as fireworks, guns or other weapons and flammable liquids, etc, are strictly prohibited and must not be included in luggage brought onboard or kept in rooms under any circumstances. It is an offence to carry such items. Any offence committed by passengers will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

Prohibited Items

To ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday for all our guests items which may pose a risk to the safety of guests and crew are not allowed to be brought onboard our ships including: Irons, kettles, coffee machines, baby bottle warmers, candles, heating devices, illegal drugs, illicit substances, flammable liquids, weapons (including knives of any kind), hoverboards (Flyboards or similar devices),remote control devices of any kind, such as drones, and power boards with surge protection devices (Surge protectors are set up for land-based electrical systems. Ships use a different electrical system and when these power boards are used onboard, they can cause damage to electrical items and can also be potentially hazardous).

In addition certain electrical items and personal grooming devices, such as power boards (without surge protection devices), laptops, phone and camera charges, , hair dryers and straighteners, curling irons and shavers may be allowed onboard if they are deemed to be in a safe and proper working condition, and used with proper caution. However, if such devices are deemed to pose a hazard, they will be confiscated and available for collection at the end of the cruise.

As part of our commitment to the responsible service of alcohol and to ensure the safety and security of guests and crew, guests are prohibited from bringing alcoholic beverages onboard. In addition, the following beverage items cannot be brought onboard our ships:
· Plastic or glass bottled drinks (including water) and slab packs of canned drinks;
· Tetra pack drinks (including fruit juice poppers)
Each guest can bring onboard a maximum of 12 canned drinks loosely packed in hand luggage.

SAFETY ADVISORY: Recently, Samsung announced a global “stop sale” and voluntary recall (view recall notice here) and exchange program on certain Galaxy Note7 smartphones. Such phones, with particular lithium-ion batteries, can overheat and catch fire, posing a burn hazard. As such, please be advised that all guests in possession of a Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphone must take the following precautions.
  • Turn off the device;
  • Disconnect the device from any charging equipment;
  • Disable all applications that could inadvertently activate the device (e.g., alarm clock);
  • Protect the power switch to prevent its unintentional activation; and
  • Keep the device on your person or nearby in carry-on baggage. (Do not place in checked baggage.)
As our guest, please follow the above precautions while traveling on any of our ships, and if possible, please refrain from taking these devices with you on board.
