Cameras: Children will be busy sailing the ship and will not have time to take photographs. We will have one or two cameras which are operated by the adults in your party and share the photos taken.
Hair: all long hair MUST be tied back securely. This is for safety to avoid entanglement with ship equipment, such as pulleys and ropes.
