The type of travel and destination can influence the health risks to which travellers may be exposed. Following simple guidelines can help travellers enjoy their voyage and help maintain a healthy environment for both themselves and other passengers.

Travellers are responsible for their health and for preventing the transmission of communicable diseases to other passengers. Effective prevention of infection requires strict adherence to the health advice provided on board ships. To safeguard the health of passengers, ship operators implement health and hygiene policies and the ships are inspected regularly by port authorities to ensure that public health risks are effectively managed.
