19 The routes and schedules of freigh- ters are based on their cargo volu- me. Cargo ship schedules change at any time and on short notice, even on regular routes. Please keep this in mind when planning your trip. Shipping companies make every ef- fort to inform their guests as quickly as possible, but are not liable for any change of schedule or similar. Current information on travel pa- ckages is available online (www. hamburgsued-frachtschiffreisen.de) or call us: Phone +49-40-3705-157. Together with the conﬁrmation of your trip, we will also send you an invoice for the deposit (25% of the total amount). We will send you the ﬁnal invoice four weeks prior to de- parture. One to two weeks before the scheduled departure, we will notify you of the exact departure date. Passport, visa and health require- ments depend on the itinerary. Please ensure compliance with the formalities. We will inform you of any regulations relevant to you. Usually, there are also age restrict- ions for passengers – each shipping company has their own rules. It is in your own interest and for your own safety to be in good health and if you are on medication please bring plenty for your voyage. There are no doctors on board cargo ships. Your accommodation on board will usually be in comfortable single and double outside cabins with en-suite shower and toilet. The liability for baggage or an accident on board is usually limited. The terms and conditions of each individual shipping company apply. We strongly recommend that you take out comprehensive medical and travel insurance before travel- ling. Hamburg Süd Reiseagentur GmbH is only the agent, not the organizer of these trips. As such, the terms and conditions for passenger travel of the shipping company, where the reservation was made, apply. You are planning a very special trip for the most beautiful time of the year. But a voyage on a freighter requires a bit of preparation.
