Security Bond: This is pre-authorised on a credit card and held by a 3rd party a few working day before your cruise.

Funds are released pending no claims and reappear 2-3 business days later in your account.

Footwear - are there any restrictions?

We prefer white flat soled shoes on board, and no stilettos.
