Please note: At some ports of call, a degree of walking may be involved to join our coach. Due to limited docking facilities, it may be necessary to dock alongside another ship, via which you can gain access to the shore. Ships Policy - people are welcome to bring their walking aid to the ship but only for use ashore. The space on board in restaurant, corridors and cabins is very limited. Using a walking aid on board would be an obstacle for other passengers in the restaurant and crew members who are serving in the restaurant or bar. Also keep in mind the damaging on the walls and furniture in cabins and corridors. Everybody on board also needs to be able to walk on their own in case of emergency or evacuation.
Prices are per person, based on two sharing a lower deck cabin. No single rooms/cabins available.

at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
