Is there a risk of being in a storm

Cruise companies are trying to develop their routes so as to avoid the risk of storm situations. In addition, modern cruise ships are equipped with technology aimed at keeping the vessel in a stable position, these include stabilizers pitching – special screws installed across the keel. When you angle the ship screw begin to rotate rapidly, returning the ship to a level position.

You arrive at the port and go to the baggage drop point. At the landing documents are special self-adhesive labels with the number of cabins. You affix tags to your bags and leave the luggage at the baggage drop point. He was later delivered to the door of the cabin.

Next, you need to go to the hall desk.

When you register you need:

Border checks the visa officer and put in a ticket to a stamp of registration.

Then you follow the ship. Landing on the ship also passes through the checkpoint, but of the ship. If there is a carry-on baggage, it is passed through an X-ray, as the airport, you pass through a metal detector.

The ships weight and the number of pieces of baggage are limited to reasonable standards, that is, there are no specific standards, but passengers should not cause inconvenience to other passengers and a quantity and weight of your luggage. In any case, the decision to admit a passenger on board with this or that amount of luggage – for the relevant services of the cruise company.

Keep in mind that the free baggage allowance is paid in addition, of its own funds.

Air and cruise companies are responsible for the loss of luggage under the relevant international rules and agreements, the amount of compensation which is limited to fixed Sumy, while the insurance company gives you the opportunity to insure your luggage on the amount that you wish.

The ship service works baggage search. If the baggage has been lost carrier, you should, in addition to applying to the relevant service of the airport, turn on the reception desk on a cruise ship. Following the procedures staff will search for baggage ship.

Late-arriving traveler who appeared to be deemed not fit, then tour to be canceled, with those lost 100 percent of the payment.

If you’re still going to be late – you should immediately notify the accompanying (for group tours) or call us and ask to warn you that you will overtake the ship at the next port, then try to fly or go to the port where the vessel will be on the next day. Otherwise, the administration Cruise reserves the right to implement an unoccupied cabin.

Passengers may request a representative of the cruise company and ask for help. Help is late and backward passengers are not officially part of the responsibilities of the offices and agencies, but practice shows that, as a rule, passengers are assisted in full, helping them with money, organize the purchase of tickets, and even provide escorts if the route is very difficult. In the case of tracking, ticketing, etc. will have to pay all the costs of representation.
