The space splendidly offers everything needed for socializing and getting to know other guests.

The salon is connected to the open, hard-top covered deck off the main deck. It is suitable for the comfort of passengers during summer and winter travels.

Trip Preparation

Passports

A passport is required for all DIV Cruises’ guests and it must be valid for at least six (6) months after the scheduled return date from your trip. Please ensure your passport is valid and contains all required visas. Please check your itinerary carefully and consult with the appropriate consulates to determine if any visas are needed. Vacations may be disrupted or altered if the correct documents are not presented at airports or border crossings.

Each guest is fully responsible for obtaining and carrying the travel documents necessary for his or her travel itinerary. DIV Cruises will not be responsible for any delays, damages and/or losses, including missed portions of your trip related to improper travel documents, such as passport, visa requirements, entry, health or other requirements of the countries visited or for any loss sustained by you for failing to comply with laws, regulations, orders and/or requirements of countries visited.

We recommend photocopying the first page of your passport, airline tickets, driver’s license and/or birth certificate to expedite the process of replacing any documents lost while traveling. Keep the originals separate from the copies and pack some extra passport photos as well. Another option is to scan your passport, airline tickets, credit card numbers and other important documents and email them to yourself as attachments.

Visas

If you are citizen and passport holder of United States, Canada, New Zealand or Australia, you do not need a visa to visit European Union countries if your stay is up to 90 days. All other nationals should check their visa requirements for each individual country you are planning to visit during your travels. It is the sole responsibility of each guest traveling with DIV Cruises to have the necessary visas and to comply with entry, health or other requirements of the countries visited. More advice can also be found at the Department of Foreigner Affairs and Trade’s website. All guests are strongly advised to obtain necessary visas well in advance of departure to avoid unnecessary expedited processing charges.

Whenever using a visa service, it is highly recommended you provide the service with a copy of your entire travel itinerary. There are times when multiple-entry visas may be required, or when there may be restrictions to entering one country from another depending on your nationality. If the service does not have your full itinerary, this may result in improperly issued documentation.

TSA Secure Flight Program

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires all passengers to provide Secure Flight passenger data when booking airline travel. This includes your full name, date of birth and gender as it appears on non-expired government-issued travel documents (e.g., passport, re-entry permit, alien registration card, “Green Card,” photo ID, etc.). Any missing or incorrect information can cause unnecessary delays at the airport. If you have booked your airline tickets and have not yet provided us with this Secure Flight passenger data, please contact our office as soon as possible at our toll free number 1-844-377-5966 or by mail at info@divcruises.com

Airport Security and Check-In

It is advisable to contact the airline in advance of your departure to verify there have been no changes to the flight number or schedule. After your travel documents are issued and sent to you, DIV Cruises is not responsible for notifying guests of any changes in flight schedules.

Please make sure you arrive at the airport at least two and a half (2.5) hours prior to your scheduled departure to complete check-in and security procedures. For peak travel times, you may even want to arrive three (3) hours prior to your scheduled departure time. This allows enough time to check your baggage, present your passport and ticket, confirm seat assignments and boarding passes and clear security procedures before proceeding to the boarding area. Most airlines offer online check-in 24 hours prior to departure, which can help you avoid long lines once at the airport. Airport security regulations require that sharp objects of any kind be stored inside your checked luggage, not your carry-on bag. You may be asked to put your shoes and/or coat through an X-ray scanner, so be prepared to remove them.

Baggage Requirements

International air carriers are often very strict about the size and weight of baggage and carry-on luggage. Please contact your air carrier or visit its website for specific requirements prior to your departure, as size and weight limitations vary according to the airline and destination. It is also important to check European domestic flight regulations as these too may vary. Passengers on international flights are usually allowed one piece of checked luggage and one carry-on bag per person. Some airlines limit each checked bag to a maximum of 62 linear inches (158 linear cm), which is the combined, length + width + height and 50 lbs. (23 kg). Your carry-on should not exceed 22 x 14 x 9 inches (55 x 35 x 22 cm) or weigh more than 17 lbs. (8 kg). International air carriers may impose fees for baggage that is too large or heavy and/or require you to remove certain articles in order to meet weight restrictions. Please check airline websites for specific baggage limitations for all your flights (both international and intra-Europe).

Important: DIV Cruises is not responsible for any additional fees imposed by air carriers. In addition, during your cruise and when traveling by motor coach, storage space may be limited and porters may decline to carry extra heavy suitcases for health and safety reasons, so we recommend bringing only one suitcase and one carry-on bag per guest.

Travel Insurance

We strongly advise you to speak with your preferred Travel Agent regarding travel insurance to cover any unforeseen circumstances. Should you get travel insurance, it is a good idea to take your travel insurance documents with you and to make copies.

For your travel insurance needs, we can recommend two possible choices for you to explore, or contact your travel professional for a recommendation for travel insurance.

Late or Missed Flights

If you miss a flight, immediately advise an airline representative that you are a cruise guest bound for a specific location/date/time to meet your ship. If your flight is cancelled, await instructions from the airline regarding alternate travel arrangements. Generally, airlines will do everything in their power to get you on the next available flight. After your airline makes your flight arrangements please refer to phone numbers listed in your travel documents and advise the ship of any delays or changes to your schedule.

Delayed or lost luggage

Baggage can sometimes be delayed or unfortunately lost during air transport. Pack a change of clothing in your carry-on bag. Place a copy of the hotel and ship contact information inside each piece of checked luggage as this will help the airline locate you, should your bags be delayed. Please note, it is the responsibility of the airline to deliver any delayed bags to you. First and foremost, do not leave the baggage area without completing a Lost Baggage Report with your air carrier. This report is essential to the tracking of your claim. If traveling with a companion, we recommend one (1) person exit the baggage claim area and locate your transfer rappresentative—whether you booked a transfer through DIV Cruises, Inc. or on your own independently—to inform them of the situation.

For reimbursement for delayed luggage or missing luggage, you will need to fill out a claim form at the appropriate airline desk before leaving the airport. DIV Cruises is not responsible for loss, theft or damage to baggage and/or personal belongings. A travel protection plan covering lost, stolen or damaged baggage is available, so check with your preferred Travel Agent at the time of booking.

Check-In-Time

Onboard cruise check-in time, as well as hotel check-in time, is at 1:00PM. However, for those passengers who book pre-cruise or post-cruise package, when you arrive to hotel earlier than check-in time, the hotel will try their best to accommodate you before the official check-in time. Please note, this is not guaranteed service; it is just the hotel’s good intention and willingness to help you

We endeavor to ensure your staterooms are ready for when you arrive on board; however, this is not always possible and is outside of our control. However, we will do our very best to ensure your comfort while waiting for your stateroom.

Currency

Most countries visited in Europe will use the Euro; although, some still have their own local currency, such as Croatia, Albania, Greece, Switzerland, Russia and the Baltic States. Croatia’s currency is the “Kuna”; Albania’s currency is the “LEK”; and Bosnia and Hercegovina’s currency is the “Convertible Mark.”

For incidental purchases ashore or in small towns, local currency is always advantageous. Many locations accept major credit cards; however, there are often fees associated. ATM machines are widely located and available throughout Europe. Prior to departure, you should confirm your ATM card and PIN will work overseas.  It is prudent to contact all your credit card companies and banking card institutions to formally notify them that you will be traveling; especially travelling abroad.  If you do not notify these institutions your charges may be declined by them for your protection against fraud.

Credit Cards and Travelers Checks

Most major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and American Express) are accepted worldwide in most European shops, hotels and restaurants. Please make sure your credit cards are valid for at least 30 days after you return home, and activate them before you travel. Some places may require a minimum charge for using credit cards and others may not accept certain cards, so we recommend bringing at least one major credit card, as well as an ATM card that is both a debit and credit card. As with your ATM card, we recommend informing your credit card company you will be traveling abroad, so they can expect overseas charges on your account. It is not advisable to bring Travelers Checks, as it is becoming increasingly difficult to cash them at local banks. In addition, there may be some stores or locations where cash is preferred or where a particular credit card cannot be used for purchases.

Note: European countries use chip-and-pin credit cards, so cards with magnetic strips on the back (commonly used in North America) may not work with certain automated machines. You might want to carry some extra cash in your wallet to use in these situations.

ATMs

Our ships do not have ATMs onboard, but ATMs linked to major bank networks can be found throughout Europe. Most debit and major credit cards can be used for cash withdrawals ashore. Your bank can tell you which network your ATM card can access and whether a debit or credit card must be used. Make sure you have the correct PIN for the card you plan to use before leaving home as the PIN is required for all money withdrawals. It is also recommended you bring an overseas contact number for your bank or credit card company in case you require assistance while traveling.

Transaction Fees

Please note, currency exchange transactions and ATM cash withdrawals always involve transaction fees. It is always best to inquire as to the fee before exchanging any money. ATMs will typically ask you if you accept the fee before enabling the transaction.

Gratuities

Gratuities are customary expressions of appreciation for a job well done, and it is our goal to ensure the service you receive is as wonderful as the sites you visit. The amount of the gratuity you choose to give is entirely subject to your satisfaction with your travel experience. To assist you in determining the amount of your gratuities,

We recommend the following as a guideline for crew and local guides:

•     Ship staff and crew: $15.00 per guest, per day to be shared among all staff and crew

•     Cruise Director: $5.00 per guest, per day

•     Local guides: $2.00 per guest

•     Drivers: $1.00 per guest, per day

Guidelines for onshore:

•      Waiters: Fine dining restaurants waiters are always tipped up to 10% of the bill. At informal cafés, it is customary to leave the coin change on the table.

•      Porters: $1 per piece of luggage

•      Taxi drivers: 10% of the fare on the meter

What to Wear

Prepare for a variety of weather conditions, depending on your travel season and the regions you will be cruising through. Layering clothing is always your best bet, as this allows you to adjust to any temperature, including artificially maintained temperatures, by removing or adding items throughout the day.

Comfortable, sporty, smart-casual daywear is appropriate both onshore and on board. Everyday slacks, khakis, walking shorts for men and skirts/dresses and slacks are recommended for women. For warmer temperatures, we suggest lightweight clothing that can be layered, such as a mix of sweaters, lightweight knit shirts, slacks and walking shorts. For early spring and late fall departures, you will find sweatshirts, heavier cotton or wool tops and long-sleeved shirts  and corduroy or heavy khaki pants perfectly suitable. Mix-and-match color schemes work best to help keep baggage light.

You will participate in a significant amount of walking over uneven terrain during your time ashore. We recommend comfortable walking shoes with good ankle support. Sturdy sandals are another good option.

For evenings, any resort-type wear is perfectly suitable; however, we do ask that you refrain from wearing shorts to dinner. Men may want to bring one sport jacket and women find a cocktail dress or two always comes in handy no matter the destination; however, it is not necessary.

Don’t forget to pack a lightweight, waterproof jacket (preferably hooded) or even a heavier-weight wind-breaker for colder temperatures.

Swim- and beach-wear is entirely appropriate to bring as you will be visiting some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. If you have sensitive feet, water shoes may be a good idea to take.

What to Pack

Current airport security regulations require any liquids and semi-liquids, such as lotions, gels, etc., be stored in your carry-on bag and must be in a container no larger than 3 oz. (88 ml) and all items must fit into a clear quart-sized plastic bag. Any items exceeding this limit may be confiscated by TSA personnel. Please refer to your local transportation authorities for more information to ensure you are compliant and have stress-free experience.

While everyone is unique in what they like to pack, here are a few general suggestions:

•      Itinerary and airline information, travel insurance documentation and emergency contacts, along with photocopies of these important documents

•      Travelers checks/cash/debit or credit cards, along with emergency contact numbers of these companies, if lost or stolen

•      Local currency for the first couple of days

•      Sunscreen, sunglasses and hats

•      Travel alarm clock

•      Basic first aid kit: medications for upset stomach, prescriptions, aspirin, antiseptic cream and wipes, cold  medicine, vitamins, bandages

•      Prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses and a backup pair in the event of loss or damage

•      Personal medication and prescriptions (it is always best to have photocopies of prescriptions)

       Note: Any medicine you take, please do not pack it in your luggage, make sure you take it with you in your carry-on bag

•      Mini flashlight and extra batteries are always handy to have

•      Small calculator (for currency conversions); your smartphone has this function

•      Converters, adapters, chargers and power cords**

•      Travel umbrella and raincoat

•      Camera and extra memory cards

*Important: Pack a sufficient supply of any medications you are taking, copies of the prescriptions and the telephone/fax numbers of your doctor. Some countries require prescription drugs be carried in their original container with the label clearly visible. Always keep your medication in your hand luggage.

**Europe uses 220v (230v on board the ship) and 2-pin adapters. Be sure to inspect your chargers and power cords (for cell phones, cameras, electric shavers, laptops, MP3 players, e-readers, etc.) to determine specific converter and/or adapter requirements operation aboard the ship. We do not provide the required adaptors.

Health & Safety

Viral gastroenteritis is a very common virus found almost anywhere, but the opportunity to spread it can be greater in contained environments. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It may also include fever, stomach issues and headache. The symptoms usually start 12 to 48 hours after the infection and can last from 1 to 10 days. Most people who become sick with viral gastroenteritis recover quickly with no further problems; however, if the illness is more severe, further medical care may be required to treat dehydration. The most effective protection from personal contamination is ensuring strict attention to personal hygiene, and in particular, frequent and thorough hand washing with soap and water and refraining from hand-to-mouth contact.

Colds and other viruses can spread quickly in an enclosed area such as a ship. Continue to practice common-sense hygiene and respiratory courtesy. Wash your hands often and cover your coughs and sneezes. It is recommended passengers carry an anti-bacterial hand sanitizer, which does not require rinsing with water. Use a sanitizer frequently, especially after shore excursions, prior to meals and throughout the day. If you have any questions regarding your health or safety while onboard, please do not hesitate to ask your Cruise Director.

In addition some guest may experience motion-sickness, and as such, it is a good idea to take precautionary measures. Over-the-counter medication can be purchased at most pharmacies or local stores. As always, it is advisable to discuss this with you preferred travel professional.
