Q. Can I take my own mattress or furniture on board?

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) provides the regulatory framework for the safe carriage of all guests and crew on-board our ships. All furniture holds the appropriate IMO Fire Rating Certificate as required of ships at sea.

Therefore for safety reasons, guests are not permitted to bring any of their own items of furniture on-board unless it has the approved IMO certificate. Examples of furniture would include, arm chairs, mattress and mattress toppers.

Guests are welcome to bring an airflow mattress on board, alternatively our recommended supplier Mobility at Sea offer a variety of compliant mobility equipment available for hire.
