If you are unwell, please stay at home.
Masks must be worn at all times when in public areas of the ports and ships.
Passengers must check in at least 90 minutes before departure.
Boarding & disembarkation will be staggered to avoid queues on stairs and on car decks*.
*Upon check-in, a coloured sticker may be applied denoting your cabin zone. This colour will be used during embarkation, disembarkation and during the crossing to manage social distancing.
During your sailing
Wash hands regularly, use hand sanitisers and follow all crew instructions.
Read signs on board and respect social distancing guidance in all public areas.

Enhanced cleaning with virucidal cleaners will take place during and between sailings.
In all public areas, the crew will wear masks when interacting with passengers.
