Q. Can I bring liquid oxygen on board?

Liquid oxygen can be carried on board our ships, providing this is arranged through our approved vendor OMEGA who can be contacted on:

01273308176 or via email: info@omegaoxygen.com (UK)

0017574811590 or via email: info@aeromedic.com (USA)

Please note that the ship's Medical Centre cannot refill oxygen or supply cylinders. You are responsible for renting / supplying enough equipment and supplies to last your entire holiday. It is likely only one cylinder can be stored in your cabin and the remainder elsewhere.

Traveling to Dubai and the Arabian Gulf

Some prescription and over the counter medicines (including pain killers) as well as some complementary therapies purchased in the UK are illegal in UAE and therefore you should declare them before travelling. If you do declare medicine before entering the country and need to take it off the ship, you must take the prescription with you and ensure they are in the original packaging/bottle; we would recommend this for any medications taken off the ship. If you are seen by the on-board medical team and are prescribed medication, you should check with the prescribing doctor whether or not it is prohibited to carry the medication prescribed ashore in UAE, and follow the guidelines above. If you are in any doubt about any of your medications, please do not take them off the ship.

Please refer to https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/united-arab-emirates/entry-requirements#Medication, when travelling with medication in the UAE.
