How do you handle food allergies?
All known food allergies or intolerances should be documented in your Food & Beverage Profile. Knowing such information allows the chef to prepare meals properly. If you or any member of your charter party has a life-threatening food allergy, you need to let your crew know as soon as you board. It's better to be safe!

Yes, we can arrange your transfer once you arrive. In that case, you should inform us immediately of your arrival. If you book with a travel agent, your agent should provide us with all the needed details about your arrival.
