PARTICIPANT DECLARATION AND CONTACT INFORMATION
No sophisticated medical facilities are available in the Polar Regions. Our vessels carry a qualified physician and have 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. 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 the 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.
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.
The medical information collected in this form will be deleted at the completion of the voyage.
