- Finland is part of Schengen Territory so any lawful resident in any other Schengen country can travel there. There is always a compulsory passport control while boarding the cruise boat. Each participant must posses a valid passport + valid visa or valid resident card. Do not book this trip if you cannot bring your valid passport with valid visa in it or a valid resident card from any Schengen country.

- On Monday 23 March we are back in Antwerp 5 AM, Mechelen 5:20 AM, Brussels around 6:00, Gent around 7:00 AM.
- All the rooms that we offer in this trip (both in the hotel two nights stay and ship two nights stay) are 4 persons per room occupancy and equipped with attached toilet, bathroom, free wi-fi, TV. If you need separate room, please check our FAQ section to know how to reserve it. Note that separate rooms may be provided during the two nights stay in hotel only. It is possible to have a few separate double rooms in the cruise ship, however, that would be additional 300 € per separate room (not per person) which we think is not viable but still if you think you would like to take one, please make the transfer of additional 300 euro on the top of your trip amount and let us know about it by email. Note also that 4 persons mentioned above mean person above the age of 5 years. Children below 5 years of age will not be provided a separate bed but only separate seat in the bus, which is mandatory as per European regulations.
