Unique Features


Smoking Policy

Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside any of the river ships, including on balconies in your suite or cabin.

Smoking is only permitted in designated outside areas. The same policy applies for electronic cigarettes.

Dietary Requirements

Please advise the APT reservation agent at time of booking of any special dietary requirements you may have and we will make every effort to accommodate your request. Please note that not all diets are possible. 

Disabled Facilties

Any disability requiring special attention must be reported to APT at the time of booking. APT will make reasonable efforts to accommodate the special needs of disabled cruise participants, but is not responsible for any denial of services by carriers, hotels, restaurants, or other independent suppliers. Tour buses are not equipped with wheelchair ramps and cabin doors are not wide enough to allow access by standard wheelchairs.

Wheelchairs and walkers cannot be carried on tour buses, due to space limitations. Wheelchair passengers should be aware of these limitations. For safety reasons, passengers in wheelchairs cannot be carried on ramps in ports where the ship is at anchor. We regret that we cannot provide individual assistance to a tour member for walking, getting on/off tour busses and other transportation vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified travel companion must accompany travellers who need assistance. 

Dress Code

The dress code is relaxed. Light, comfortable clothing is ideal for during the day, but smart casual clothing for evenings on board the ship is recommended. You may wish to bring something a little dressier for the Welcome and Farewell dinners and any special events, however there will be no black tie or formal evenings.

We recommend that you pack a variety of light to medium weight clothing, plus rain-wear in case of cooler or wet weather. Layers are a good option to cover a range of temperatures and to suit changing conditions.

Comfortable footwear is imperative, as some excursions involve steps or ramps to embark/disembark.
