Ships

Several ships available for this cruise

Valid passport required. Non-EU nationals are advised to consult their embassy or consulate.


INTERNET

SATELLITE CONNECTIONS

Our ship provides Internet connection via satellite while we cruise, which is different and slower than what we are used to through our regular home or office services. We cannot guarantee connection at all times. Please keep this in mind while you are enjoying your vacation with us.

TELEPHONE SERVICE

DURING CRUISE

When we are at sea, you can connect your device(s) to the onboard GSM/3G network. Your service provider will automatically send you the terms and conditions of use for this service. You will be able to make calls, send messages, or use the Internet through this network’s roaming services. The GSM network will be turned off once the ship enters a port.

WHILE IN PORT

When the ship is in a port, you will be able to receive and make calls via your international calling/service plan according to the country you are visiting.

WATCH OUT FOR SERVICE FEES

We strongly recommend that you contact your service provider before your departure; international calls and data usage can be very costly and are almost never included in basic operator packages.

PLEASE CHECK THE SETTINGS FOR YOUR DEVICE

Once you are on board, but before you connect to the Internet, please check the settings for your device(s).  We request that you limit the downloading of videos and large-volume files. Automatic updates to your PC, tablet, and smartphones will affect the speed and cost of your connection. You probably have automatic updates for apps on your devices that you are not aware of. We recommend that you deactivate these updates while you are staying with us.


Warning: Navigational obligations and weather conditions can disrupt the itinerary, and in certain cases, intermediate stops may be canceled. If this happens, CroisiEurope will do our best to find the best solution according to passenger expectations. For safety reasons, the company and/or the captain of the ship are the only authorities who can modify the cruise itinerary. 2019 PRE-CRUISE PROGRAM (subject to changes).
