Your Skipper or Guest Manager will be able to advise you further on the tipping customs.
Our crew is amazing. Skippers and hostess are working hard to make this the best week of your life. If you are satisfied with their enthusiasm and the service you’re getting, it would be nice to tip them at the end of the cruise. That would be the nice way of showing your gratitude.
We want to make sure you’re having the time of your life while travelling with us. Therefore, if you suffer from any kind of medical condition or allergies, we need to know about it. Please make sure this information is filled in the crew list information.
If you require regular medication, you must have a sufficient supply before your trip departs, as it may be difficult to obtain while travelling. You must be able to administer your own medication, as the SailWeek Crew will not be able to administer it.
In most towns you can expect to pay a small amount to use public toilets. It is a common practice in Malta and should be regarded as a form of ‘tipping’, as the money goes to the people who clean and/or maintain the facilities. It is very rare that public toilets do not supply toilet paper, but it may be useful to carry a pack of tissues with you. We recommend using the cafe and restaurant toilets whenever you can as it is free.
Your yacht will use a CEE7/16 standard round two-prong plug, so a single adapter will work. The yacht will only have AC power while in marina (2 or 3 days). The yacht will always have USB access via a 12 volt car charger for phones, tablets etc.
In Malta they use power plugs and sockets of British origin – type G. Throughout Malta the voltage is 230 V. If the voltage is the same or similar in your home country your appliance will comply. If you have a 110 V appliance you will need to use a transformer to avoid damaging your appliance.
On your yacht full bedding will be provided so you do not need to bring a sleeping bag. We recommend soft bags, suitcases or frameless backpacks, plus a small day pack or carry bag. No external framed bags please, as they can damage or mark the walls of the yacht/cabin. Please limit your luggage to a maximum of 20kg.
