Medical facilities,as you would expect, are provided throughout the voyage. A doctor travels with each journey and the onboard infirmary is equipped to deal with most first-aid requests and emergencies. Stay in touch if you want with Internet facilities in the ship’s library or use your own laptop to connect via Wi-Fi when the ship is in or near port. Satellite calls can also be made through the radio room if needed.
Combat the calories in the gym, complete with modern exercise machines, plus guests can also use the laundry facilities provided. A boutique aboard carries souvenirs, toiletries, simple medicines as well as sweets and snacks.
When visiting ports and going ashore, sturdy tender barges ferry passengers when a gangway cannot be lowered. In either case, expert crew is at hand to assist ensuring passenger safety and comfort is maintained at all times.
