Evergreen Tour & Cruise FAQ's
Frequently asked questions for clients considering travelling with Evergreen
Planning Your Evergreen Tour or Cruise
Are the ships the same on all river cruise itineraries? Do I have to pre-book all shore excursions?
Evergreen has five 'Star-Ships' that cruise Europe Rivers plus the Emerald Liberte that features on the France river cruise itineraries and the Emerald Radiance that cruises the Douro River connecting Spain and Portugal. In Russia you will be aboard the more traditional MS Rossia. Mekong itineraries are hosted aboard the Emerald Harmony. If you choose a Dalmatian Coastal Cruise you will be aboard the MS Lastavica or the MS Swallow.
What validity do I need on my passport?
Normal included shore excursions are not pre-booked, however, if you choose to personalise your holiday with the 'Discover More' extra sightseeing available, it is a good idea to pre-book these to guarantee your place on them. All excursions are subject to minimum numbers.
Should I provide Evergreen Cruises & Tours with my health and fitness details prior to travelling?
All passengers are required to possess a passport valid for 6 months beyond the conclusion of their trip.
Can I take prescription medication?
Evergreen Cruises will supply a Health and Fitness form in your travel wallet. These forms are designed to provide Evergreen with instant information if an emergency should arise. These forms will be returned unopened at the completion of the tour. It is not compulsory to fill out these forms but is strongly recommended.
Evergreen strongly recommend a visit to your doctor and dentist prior to your tour. If you are aged 70 or over at the Tour Departure date you must provide Evergreen with a doctor's letter confirming you are fit and healthy enough to take part in the specified tour including reference to the itinerary, destinations and tour departure date.
You must advise Evergreen of any pre-existing medical conditions that might reasonably be expected to increase your risk of requiring medical attention, affect the normal conduct of the tour and/or the enjoyment of other tour members. You will be required to fill in Evergreen's Health and Fitness form and hand it to your Tour Director on the tour departure date.
Can I travel in a wheelchair?
Yes, and it's advisable to pack an ample supply of any medicine you are taking, copies of prescriptions and the telephone/fax number of your doctor. Because of strict drug laws in some countries, drugs you take on doctor's orders should be carried in their original container showing the prescription label. Always keep your medication in your hand luggage.
Are there medical personnel available on the ship?
Europe: Due to the structure of old buildings, access to some establishments may not be convenient for wheelchair use, and facilities for the disabled in general may be limited. Many areas are pedestrian only. Certain castles have a number of stairs which may impact guests with limited mobility access to all touring areas. There are also areas of the ship that cannot be accessed by wheelchair and passengers will need to be able to get on and off the ship out of the wheelchair, due to space. Please let your Global Journeys Travel Advisor know your needs to ensure you can travel comfortably.
Alaska and Caribbean cruises: Some cruise ships do not have elevators, and ships that are equipped with elevators may not have elevator access to all decks. Wheelchair passengers should be aware that cabin doors and rest rooms are not wide enough to provide access for standard wheelchairs. Requests for disabled rooms must be made at the time of booking and are subject to availability. For safety reasons, passengers in wheelchairs cannot be carried on boarding ramps (which may be steep due to water levels) whilst the vessel is tied up or at anchor or on to motor coaches. Please let your Global Journeys Travel Advisor know of your particular needs to ensure you can travel on the trip of your choice.
South East Asia: For guests in wheelchairs it is important to recognise that the Mekong Star Ships are not ideally wheelchair suitable. Access may be limited and sometimes impossible as there are some narrow corridors, steps in the public areas and lips on certain doorways. In case of an emergency, all guests must be able to get in and off the vessel with limited or no assistance. Evergreen recommends that guests with special needs travel with a companion who can provide required assistance. Guests who have any medical, physical or other special needs should check the deck plan to gain an understanding of the layout of the Mekong Star Ship they are travelling on and also outline their needs.
South America & Antarctica: There are no accessibility facilities.
Europe and South East Asia: Doctors are not available on board the ship, however Evergreen can stop anywhere along the way for medical emergencies.
South America Amazon river cruise: There is a paramedic on board at all times, plus first-aid trained staff can handle minor scrapes, bites or sprains.
Galapagos cruise: There is either a doctor or a medical officer on board.
Antarctica cruise: There is a medical clinic with a doctor on board.
Alaska and Caribbean cruise: There are medics that travel on board.
Before You depart
When will we receive our final documents? Do cabins have a safe?
Travel documents will be issued approximately 3 weeks prior to departure. If you need to receive your documents sooner, or need your documents sent to a different location for any reason, please be sure that you let your Global Journeys Travel Advisor know where to send them.
Does the ship have laundry facilities?
Yes all cabins have a safe.
Is there a hair dryer in the cabin?
Yes there is a laundry service payable by item, similar to in hotels. Due to safety concerns there is no public washing facilities and no irons in the cabins. Guests can ask for garments to be ironed by the staff.
Are there coffee & tea making facilities on board?
Yes every cabin has a hair dryer.
What adaptor should I take to charge my camera/phone etc?
There is a tea and coffee station available 24 hours in the Lounge.
The ship has Australian and European wall sockets, so a Euro, Australian, New Zealand or international adaptor plug will work well.
How much luggage can I bring on a River Cruise? Is porterage included?
The luggage allowance whilst on tour is one suitcase with a maximum size of 76 x 53 x 28 cms (30 x 21 x 11'') and weight of 20 kilograms. You may also carry a small backpack, or the Evergreen Cruises & Tours issued backpack. Additional bags beyond the luggage allowance may incur additional charges and are to be settled directly to the hotel or as required. Please check with your Global Journeys Travel Advisor if you have any specific requirements.
Should I attach the Evergreen Cruises & Tours cardboard luggage label provided prior to departure?
Handling and porterage of your luggage (as per the luggage allowance above) is included in your tour. Additional bags beyond the allowance may be charged or it may be the responsibility of the passenger to forward the baggage to another destination. Luggage handling is not included during any independent or non-escorted touring. In this situation, luggage handling and porterage will need to be organised directly with the hotel porters. For security reasons, porterage around public transport including airports and train stations is your responsibility.
What happens if my luggage goes missing?
No, Evergreen request that you please wait until you have claimed your luggage at your destination airport. This will ensure airline companies will not tear off this tag, as it is required to easily identify your luggage for transfer services and hotels.
What clothing should I pack?
It is highly unlikely for your luggage to be mislaid; however, Evergreen suggests if travelling as a couple to pack each suitcase with back up clothes and toiletries for each person. Evergreen also suggest writing your personal and tour details on a label inside each suitcase (including name, address, telephone number, departure and return flight details). Write only your name and destination address on outside labels.
What else do I need to pack?
You are on holidays and therefore the dress code is relaxed. However, most of Evergreen guests do observe smart casual for the evenings on board the ship or for any of the many evening activities planned on tour. Perhaps include something a bit more elegant for the Welcome and Farewell dinners, although black tie and formal attire are not needed. Evergreen also recommend a mixture of light and medium weight clothing that can accommodate changing weather conditions including a waterproof jacket. For visits that include religious sites like synagogues, monasteries, mosques or churches - it's asked that you dress conservatively including covered shoulders, trousers and/or knee-length dress.
- Casual sportswear for daytime that can be mixed/matched/layered
- Jumper/warm jacket/gloves/hat/scarf for cooler mornings and nights

On the Trip
What time can I check-in to my hotel? Are there likely to be changes to my itinerary?
If your flight arrives before noon (usually 14.00 is check-in time) at the city where your tour starts, the hotel may not have your room available until mid-afternoon. Evergreen endeavour to ensure that rooms are ready for your arrival times however this is not always possible, and it is outside their control. Some people use this time to explore the neighbourhood, shop or relax in the hotel public areas. On arrival at your hotel, please check to see if your Tour Director has already posted tour information in the foyer.
How do I book my DiscoverMORE activities?
On certain occasions, for operational or local reasons, it may be necessary for Evergreen to change your hotel accommodation or a brochured attraction in a particular location. If this does occur, you will be notified of such changes as soon as possible.
Are laundry facilities available?
Evergreen's DiscoverMORE activities are subject to availability, operational and seasonal factors. All activities can be reserved, subject to availability with the Evergreen Tour Director whilst on tour unless otherwise stated. Please note a minimum number of people are required for some activities to operate.
Are there any restrictions on photography?
Limited laundry facilities are available on board cruise vessels and costs are additional and the responsibility of the guests. When staying in a hotel you can generally arrange laundry direct with the hotel although it can be costly. Some hotels will provide an iron for you upon request. There are also laundromats in certain towns and cities. Evergreen recommend checking with your tour or cruise director for more specific details.
What is the appropriate dress for visiting holy places?
It may not be possible to use your camera or video camera at some sites of interest, or there may be a fee; please ask your Tour Director for further details. Not everyone would appreciate being on your souvenir home video or holiday photo, so please respect the privacy of local people and cruise directors/local guides by asking permission before filming or taking a photograph, especially in holy places.
Who will be escorting the trip?
When visiting churches and monasteries, modest dress is required, i.e., no shorts, miniskirts or sleeveless tops. Turkey and Morocco are Muslim countries and you need to dress conservatively. To visit mosques, clean and modest dress is appreciated and often required. Thighs, shoulders and tops of upper arms should not be shown. Men also need to cover their bare legs and cannot enter mosques wearing shorts. Some holy places will supply scarves for tourists to borrow.
Can Evergreen accommodate special dietary requirements?
Your holiday is a special time and Evergreen's Tour Directors and Cruise Directors make all the difference. From your very first day their warm greetings and professionalism signal the start of a wonderful rapport. For all land tours you will have the services of a Tour Director. Whilst on your cruise you will be taken care of by a Cruise Director. Evergreen's Tour and Cruise Directors have your best interests at heart and will take care of all arrangements for you.
What type of food can I expect?
Yes. If you have not already advised your Global Journeys Travel Advisor at the time of booking, please let your Tour Director know at the start of the tour any special needs or dietary requirements so they can be best accommodated. Remember your favourite food items will not always be available.
Be mindful that meals on your trip will often reflect the local cuisine and delicacies, which may be different to what you are normally accustomed to. Your dining experiences will certainly enhance your tour and introduce you to the local region and culture.
Onboard Your Cruise
What currency is accepted on board the ship? Will there be access to the internet?
The currency on board the ship is Euro. Most clients prefer to run a tab though, so you can use your credit card on board with a tab system set up at reception. You can also withdraw cash from ATM machines in the towns that you visit whilst on tour (cash passports are not accepted).
If I have mobility issues will it be a problem?
On Evergreen River Cruises there is free Wi-Fi. You should be mindful though that internet reception levels can vary depending on where the ship is, and bandwidth heavy apps such as Skype is often not available due to signal strength.
Is there a dress code at dinner time?
Normally it is no problem, but you should be able to at least cross the gangway from the shore to the ship un-aided, and there are steps to climb to reach the sun deck. Walking frames are usually ok, but wheelchairs are not manageable on river cruising.
Are the ships non-smoking?
There are no enforced dress codes at any time on the ship. However, for the Captains Gala Dinner, often our guests like to dress up, perhaps a jacket for the gentlemen and a dress for the ladies.
Do the cabins have climate controlled air conditioning?
