In accordance with the provisions of Legislative Decree 28/01 and Legislative Decree No. 05/05, the Company stipulates that, for units subject to these standards, one or more crew members shall be appointed for the specially-assisted passengers (assistance to PRM users), people with reduced mobility, in order to communicate them all the information on the services and assistance at their disposal and in the most suitable form for the visually impaired.
Therefore our board and ticketing staff has been specially instructed to provide, when required, the necessary assistance to PMRs.

More generally, PMRs have been identified and created private areas and armchairs in passenger reception rooms.
Passengers who need proper accommodation and / or boarding assistance because they are on a wheelchair will advance their request for assistance at the ticket office, which will indicate the timetable when the ship is equipped with a lift.
