Safety On Board
All cruise ships are designed and operated in compliance with the strict
requirements of the
International Maritime Organization, the UN agency that mandates global
standards for the safety and
operation of cruise ships through adoption of treaties, regulations
and resolutions, codified in
the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention.
Safety-related regulations and requirements are rigorous
- and ships often go substantially
above and beyond what is required, for example carrying backup mechanical,
navigational and safety
provisions. Ships crews undertake extensive training, certification,
drills and scenarios for emergency situations,
including the evacuation of a ship. All cruise ships have lifeboats,
life rafts and life preservers for every
person on board as well as additional capacity. read more
