If you confirm a booking, we may share the personal data you provide on the crew list with our collaborators, service providers (insurance companies), and the Port Authorities for the purpose to validate your reservation, edit a charter party, arrange your arrival at the embarkation point, or to follow the necessary process for the sail-off.
