Do I have to take out insurance?
The price of the cruise does not include insurance.
We advise you to take out insurance to cover the risks of cancellation, assistance, repatriation, damage and loss of luggage and medical expenses. These optional insurance contracts must be taken out with an external insurance company independent of Perseverance.
Depending on your sensitivity to the cold, you should choose clothing that protects you from water and wind. Choose materials such as fleece that insulate better from the cold than cotton. To keep warm, wear several light layers of clothing rather than just one.
We advise you to check as soon as possible that your vaccinations are up to date for the countries you will visit.
These vaccines concern the Covid but also other diseases, such as yellow fever and others.
