MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE

for

ANTARCTIC Expedition Cruising

 

No sophisticated medical facilities are available in the Antarctic. The vessel carries a qualified physician and has a limited infirmary with basic medications and equipment. Passengers are further advised that medical evacuation, if available, is expensive, and we strongly recommend you acquire medical insurance that would reimburse you for this cost. Please note, the locations being traveled in are very remote, and in the areas where Medevacs (Medical Evacuations) are possible, it might take up to 2 days to be reached. In some other areas - such as South Georgia - Medevacs are impossible, as the area is out of the range of helicopters and/or does not have landing strips.

This expedition is therefore intended for persons in reasonably good health. Passengers who are not fit for long trips for any reason, including disability, heart or other health conditions, are advised not to join the tour, as it would entail an unreasonable risk to your health and safety of you and others on the expedition.

Together with your Travel Agency, Albatros Expeditions (AE) require you complete this confidential personal Participant Declaration so that the shipboard physician is fully aware of your medical conditions and needs ­and can better care for you onboard. This is part of AE’s obligation for self-­‐sufficiency under the terms of the Antarctic Treaty System. In addition, you are expected to carry your own regular medications, which may not be available aboard.

 

Privacy Policy

Your personal information belongs to you and it is important for AE to protect what you share with us. The purpose of AE's personal data policy is to explain in a concise and transparent way how we collect, transfer, use and protect your personal information. AE has a clear ambition of minimizing the distribution of your personal information and creating a high degree of transparency in relation to this information.  

Albatros Expeditions voyages are staffed with English-speaking expedition personnel with extensive experience in the areas being visited. The expedition staff has the task of guiding you through your journey and helping along the way. In order to do this, we typically provide information about name, date and time of arrival and departure, and special requests for the transfer or the excursion, including ordering of special menus and, if applicable, special assistance requirements due to disability or illness.

The medical information collected in this form will be destroyed at the completion of the actual voyage.

I attest that I am in good general health, and capable of performing normal activities on this expedition. I further attest that I am capable of caring for myself during the expedition, and that I will not impede the progress of the expedition or the enjoyment of others aboard. I understand that this expedition will take me far from the nearest medical facility and that all travelers must be self‐sufficient. With that understanding, I certify that I have not been recently treated for, nor am I aware of, any condition, physical nor psychological, or disability that would create a hazard to myself or other members of the expedition.
