Embarkation of vehicles
Once you have checked in, you will be able to proceed with boarding according to the instructions given by the ship's captain.
The driver of the vehicle must park in the ship's garage indicated by the personnel. Passengers without a car and accompanying persons must board the ship from the pedestrian entrance, without access to the garage.
During navigation, access to the garages is not allowed for safety reasons, so passengers must bring everything necessary for the journey once the vehicle has been parked.
Owners of LPG vehicles must notify the seafarers during boarding. Their vehicle will be parked in specific areas of the ship.
Disembarkation from the ship
When disembarking it is necessary to carefully follow the on-board announcements. The cabins must be left when notified by the announcements and until disembarkation and access to the garages is authorised, passengers must wait in the common areas to avoid unnecessary gatherings.
