What Not To Pack


We know that packing for a holiday can be hard. We’re making it just that little bit easier. The following items are NOT permitted:

Explosives, fireworks, guns, knives or weapons of any kind, illicit substances, flammable liquids, remote control devices of any kind, including drones and any item that is prohibited by law.

Safety first

We make sure all our cruises are as safe as possible. All luggage will be security screened for drugs and alcohol as well as dangerous items at embarkation. If you have any alcohol in your bag it will be collected at embarkation and returned to you at the end of your cruise. We reserve the right to deny boarding or to disembark any persons in possession of illicit substances. Dangerous articles such as fireworks, guns or other weapons and flammable liquids, etc, are strictly prohibited and must not be included in luggage brought onboard or kept in rooms under any circumstances. It is an offence to carry such items. Any offence committed by passengers will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

In addition certain electrical items and personal grooming devices, such as power boards (without surge protection devices), laptops, phone and camera charges, , hair dryers and straighteners, curling irons and shavers may be allowed onboard if they are deemed to be in a safe and proper working condition, and used with proper caution. However, if such devices are deemed to pose a hazard, they will be confiscated and available for collection at the end of the cruise.
