Travel Tips

  • Wear your swimsuit. It is much easier than changing on a moving boat.
  • Don’t forget to bring sunscreen. The Mediterranean sun can be very hot, and the rays reflect on the water. Long-sleeved t-shirts can also help protect you from the sun.
  • Bring a waterproof bag for your valuables. Things tend to get wet on board, so having the proper protection for your gear is necessary.
  • Hydrate the night before. Drinking water will keep you energized and prevent you from becoming dehydrated.
  • Bring a light jacket. The sea breeze can sometimes be chilly, especially after the sunsets.
