Each adult Guest is permitted to carry onboard the vessel the personal belongings reasonably necessary for the cruise, including suitcases, trunks, valises, satchels, bags containing clothing, toiletries, and similar items, however, Scubaspa strongly suggests the Guests pack their belongings in soft bags rather than hard covered, bulky valises, in order to avoid storage issues onboard.
10.2 Under no circumstances shall any Guest bring on board the vessel, any illegal controlled substances, drugs, fireworks, weapons, firearms, explosives, or other hazardous materials and/or items that are prohibited by applicable law.

10.3 All valuable items should be stored in a mini-safe located in each cabin/suite.
Smoking on the vessel is extremely dangerous and puts lives as well as the vessel at risk. It is therefore strictly forbidden to smoke inside the vessel as well as in any exterior areas other than the designated smoking area. In case of any violation of this policy, Scubaspa reserves the right to charge a cleaning fee of $250 and to disembark the Guest at the Guest's expense. In such a case, the Guest is not eligible for any compensation or refund payments by Scubaspa. We strictly adhere to zero-tolerance with regard to the policy on smoking.

14. SAFETY AND SECURITY
Should the Guest become aware of anyone being injured or of unsafe or any possibly illegal, suspicious, or inappropriate behavior during the cruise, it is very important to immediately report this to the Captain or a senior member of the vessel's crew.
15. MEDICATION AND HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS
15.1 Due to the nature of a safari cruise, Guests must ensure that if they are currently taking prescription medication or long-term medication it is their sole responsibility to ensure that they bring an adequate supply with them to last for the duration of their booked Scubaspa holiday.
15.2 Any medical assistance available on board will be limited to first aid offered by qualified staff. Anyone requiring more specialist treatment will require moving to shore therefore Scubaspa advises all Guests to carry adequate travel insurance.

15.4 Guests are required to advise Scubaspa in writing, at or prior to the time a cruise begins, of any physical, emotional, or mental condition which may require attention during the cruise. Failure to do so releases Scubaspa from any liability for loss, damages, or other compensation arising from or related in any way to such disability or condition. Guests should be aware that due to the nature of the cruises offered Scubaspa is not prepared for any Guests with serious health issues. If a Guest has a condition that in Scubaspa's opinion may seriously affect the enjoyment, health, or safety of themselves or any other person on board, Scubaspa reserves the right to refuse to board to accept such a person.

If the client has any pre-existing medical conditions and/or will be taking any medication while on holiday, we will ask them to look over a medical form. Please, note that as part of the check-in for the diving, passengers will have to complete a medical statement. If the Guest answers one or more questions of the medical statement with a "yes", he/she will need a medical certificate from a doctor, which states that he/ she is fit to dive. Please keep in mind, that we will not be able to take Guest diving without the release if any of the conditions mentioned in the form applies to him/her.
