We consider pets all those animals legally registered according to the laws of their owner's Country.
For dogs and cats, our vessels have specific supervised areas; other animals (as hamsters, rabbits and birds) must travel in their own carriers.
Unfortunately, all the pets can travel neither in cabins nor in seats room and common areas; however, they can be on the external decks of the vessel, where they can walk with their owners.
Accompanying animals will be nourished by their owners. Except for water, the personnel on board is in no way obliged to provide for food.
Accompanying animals will be maintained by their owners who are also obliged to remove their excrements or any other stuff produced by the same.
The passenger is liable for the accompanying animal. Any damage to the ship or things and any injury to persons caused by the same shall be indemnified on the spot. The passenger is also responsible for animal vaccinations and other measures required for animal travelling and debarking in the port of destination.
Accommodation of Pets has to be booked.
Branch offices with direct access to the Computerized Reservation System shall check in advance dog house availability. The transport of the accompanying animal is included in the ticket.
Pets (dogs) must be accompanied by:
- For international and non-Schengen routes: the European passport (PET), a muzzle and a leash
- For domestic routes: the enrollment in the canine registry (registered microchip), a certificate of good health issued by the veterinary doctor, a muzzle and a leash
If a passenger checks-in with an accompanying animal not scheduled in the ticket, the port agent shall proceed as follows:
- He will check whether the dog house on board is available
- He will cash the relative amount and will issue the relative ticket
The Captain supervises the observance of provisions concerning the transport of animals. It is strictly forbidden to keep animals in the cabin and across passenger areas. By underwriting the relative statement the Client accepts these conditions. Animals are not allowed to voyage inside the passenger vehicles. Blind passengers can travel accompanied by their guide dog, according to the provisions of the LAW August 25, 1988, n. 376, at no additional cost. The dog can travel in the cabin with the passenger. The presence of the guide dog must be reported when boarding. The transport of pets is restricted for the sake of all passengers’ comfort.
