Sailing can be dangerous but every precaution is taken to avoid risks, but it is everyone’s duty to ensure their own safety and to avoid putting others at risk at all times.  All cruises start with a safety briefing.

Children are welcome to attend however there are no child life jackets on board. The minimum age that will  fit the life jackets is approx. 12 depending on size of child.
