Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • How do you make payment onboard?

    All payments onboard are usually taken at the end of the cruise and you can choose to either pay via credit card or cash, please note any payments in cash need to be in the local currency.

  • Are gratuities/tips included in the cruise cost?

    The cruise cost does not include gratuities as this is up to your own discretion depending on the level of service you feel you received on the cruise. However as a guideline, if you would like to leave a tip Nicko cruises recommends €5-7 per passenger per night.

  • Does every cabin have a view?

    All cabins onboard the ships are outside cabins which mean you will either have a cabin with a window or porthole.

  • Do you offer multi-berth cabins?

    On certain ships, selected twin berth cabins can accommodate up to 3 persons however it is important to note that the third bed is usually a fold-away bed and the cabin is not bigger than usual.

  • Are the cruise itineraries subject to change?

    Like most cruises, Nicko Cruises itineraries are weather-dependent – for example, a long period of rain or drought could have a short-term, detrimental effect on water levels which will affect the itinerary.

  • Do you provide travel documents?

    Travel documents are usually sent via email 14 days prior to the cruise departing. The documents include vouchers for any pre-booked services and in-depth information about the embarkation procedure and any details of excursions.

  • Is it possible to bring pets onboard?

    Due to the space requirements on the ships, it is not possible to bring your pet along with you.

  • Are transfers included?

    Included transfers can vary depending on the cruise you are travelling on, we recommend contacting our team of cruise specialists for further details on the transfer services which may be available to you.

  • What meals are included on the cruise?

    All of the cruises are full board, which means breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. Nicko cruises try to source local produce depending on where you are travelling on the cruise for the meals. For the dining service, breakfast is based on a buffet and lunch and dinner are usually table service.

  • What is the electricity power in the cabins?

    Electricity on board the Nicko Cruises ships is 220v which requires a European Adaptor. You will need an adaptor or converter to use in your cabin as these are not supplied.
