General Information

Passenger cabins and shared facilities, such as the dining room, lounges, exercise room and swimming pool are located on various decks. These ships have an elevator on board, nevertheless passengers must be fully mobile and able to negotiate the stairs. Front and aft views may be obstructed by the containers stowed on deck.

Self service laundry facilities are available. The electrical current is 220/50 AC. A two-prong round adapter and converter are needed for North American appliances. A steward will clean the cabin once a week, or more offten if required.

A small onboard shop provides a limited selection of beverages, cigarettes and toiletries at duty free prices. Onboard expenses may be paid for with cash in Euro (Ä)/US$. Tipping is at the passengerís discretion; $3 per day is recommended. Telephone, fax and e-mail (but not the Internet) connections are available through the Captainís office. Port time can vary from half a day to two days.

Reservations can be made by completing a Registration Form and providing a 25% deposit. Balance of the fare, plus Ä275 for port and vessel fees is payable 75 days before departure. The fare may be paid for by check or wire (by exception only, credit cards may be accepted) in either the basic tariff currency, as quoted by the steamship line, or USD/CAD at the prevailing exchange rate, subject to a final adjustment at the time the ticket is issued, a few weeks before departure.

Passports must be valid for at least 6 months beyond the anticipated return date, and a visa for China must be obtained. A Medical Statement of Good Health and International Health and Accident Insurance are required on all voyages, as is the vaccination certificate against yellow fever. The age limit is 80.

Cancellation fees are as follows: over 60 days, loss of deposit; 30-59 days, 50% of the fare. No refund will be made within 30 days of departure. To protect your investment, Cancellation and Interruption Insurance is highly recommended. It protects your investment from the moment you buy the policy at the same price as it would be one day before the voyage. And if you take it within three weeks of your initial deposit, pre-existing conditions are waived.

Travelex Insurance packages are available to Maris customers worldwide on our web page Before You Sail.

For reservations, please use the Initial Contact page.
