Can I use my cell phone on the cruise? Yes, cell phone service is available onboard the ship. International Roaming rates will apply, so check with your cell phone service provider to determine what the charges will be.

Will I Get Seasick? Seasickness is very rare on ships as large as ours. The ship is equipped with stabilizers which are designed to keep it smooth and steady in the water. If you should feel queasy, medicine is available from your cabin steward, the Information Desk or from the doctor.

Is There a Doctor on Board? Yes, a qualified physician and nurse from our medical staff are on call 24 hours a day. Infirmary hours for medical examinations can be found in your cabin. A professional fee will be charged. If you should come down with a contagious disease, or even suspect a contagious disease, it is compulsory that you report it to the ship's doctor for the safety of everyone on board. Should you be on any medication, or want the medical staff to be aware of any special needs, please contact our infirmary. This will ensure they will be prepared should you need assistance. Our doctors are independent contractors.

Medications? Please carry your required medication in your pocket or purse so that it will be available when needed. Checked luggage may not be accessible at all times. If you're using any prescription drugs, vitamins or other medication on a regular basis, you should bring an adequate supply with you since these may not be readily available either aboard ship or in our ports of call. Commonly used medications may be purchased at the office of the ship's doctor.

Does the ship offer Internet Service? Yes, the ship does have an internet cafe. There you can use the cafe computers to access the internet and send and receive email. The charges range from $.75 per minute to package deals of 100 minutes for $55 and 250 minutes for $100. These rates are subject to change. You will be able to connect your personal computer to the internet through a wireless network located in the internet cafe area. Wireless packages may be purchased in blocks of minutes of time. If you do not have a wireless card, you may rent one from the internet cafe. Note: rates are subject to change.

What About Electrical Appliances? Bring them with you by all means. The current in the staterooms is 110 volts AC and is capable of handling all normal appliances such as electric razors, hair dryers and hot curlers. However, some appliances may require use of an adapter.

Where Is the Lost And Found? The Lost and Found is located at the Information Desk. If you've lost anything, you should report the item to the Information Desk and ask if it has turned up yet. If you find anything, please turn it in there. After the ship returns to your port of origin, all found and unclaimed articles will be sent to the company headquarters in Miami where they can be claimed.

Tipping? Gratuities ($94.50 pp/ $105.50 pp for SUite Guests) are not included in the cost of your cruise and will be added to your statement from Templeton Tours. Gratuities cover the following personnel:

  • Dining Room Maitre d'
  • Dining Room Head Waiter
  • Dining Room Waiter
  • Dining Room Busboy
  • Room Steward

Other personnel, such as Bar Waiters, Bellboys and Deck Stewards maybe tipped as service is rendered. 15% of the bill is automatically added to Sail & Sign beverage purchases which you may adjust appropriate to the service received.

Photographic Experiences Remember to keep smiling! You never know when the Ship's Photographer may take a candid picture of you. The photos will be on display and are available for purchase. Special requests can be made by appointment and are available for a fee. If you like taking your own pictures, film for cameras is on sale in the duty-free shop. One-day developing service is available on board ship. See the Photo Gallery Office for details. Please see Photographic Experiences for more information.

Birthdays and Anniversaries If you're going to celebrate a birthday or wedding anniversary during your cruise, please let the Maitre d' know.

What to Do With Your Valuables? We're sure you'll want to bring your camera, jewelry and other valuable items with you on your cruise. However, since the ship cannot accept responsibility for any articles left in the stateroom, public areas or packed in your luggage, we suggest the use of a safety deposit box or cabin safe. For your convenience and protection, safety deposit boxes are available at the Information Desk.

What About Towels? Towels are supplied on deck by the pool, so please don't bring any up from your stateroom.
