FAQ's about Safety (CroisiEurope Cruising)

Restaurant on the MS Gerard Schmitter.

Are there life jackets on board?

Each cabin is provided with two adult life jackets and two life jackets for children.  A demonstration of the proper use of the life jackets will be given to all passengers, prior to departure.


Are there life boats on board?

River ships do not have life boats on board, as the bodies of water on which we travel are small, and life jackets provide appropriate flotation and protection in the case of emergency.  Our ocean-cruising ships are fully equipped with the regulatory safety equipment.


I have a medical condition.  Is there a doctor or nurse on board?

CroisiMer Ocean and coastal cruise ships have a nurse on board. 

Our CroisiEurope river cruise ships and hotel barges there are no doctor or nurse available.  In the case of an emergency, the purser will immediately contact a doctor or nurse on land, and the ship will stop at the nearest possible landing point to facilitate emergency medical attention.

Every ship has a defibrillator on board and at least two people on the boat are trained to use it.

If you have any health conditions that are of concern to you, please visit your physician to be thoroughly checked and cleared before embarking on a cruise.  We are always at your service in the case of any emergency, but we’d much rather that you enjoy your trip without fear of interruption by a medical crisis!
