For Panormitis Marine Enterprises, the safety of our guests and crew has always been our highest priority. Our excellent marine safety record over our years of operation- illustrates our commitment to the safety of the thousands of guests who sail with us each year. The measures we take in the interest of safety are many, with our ship often exceeding what is required by regulatory authorities. It's all part of our commitment to our passengers.
At the beginning of every cruise, special safety announcements are made, to ensure all passengers are familiar with what to do and where to go in the unlikely event of an emergency. To further ensure they are aware of the muster locations, the ship is clearly labeled with safety signs.
The crew conducts weekly drills and complete extensive training, and scenarios in preparation for the very unlikely event of an emergency, including training on ship evacuation procedures. Our ship has sufficient life saving rafts to accommodate every guest and crew member onboard, as well as additional capacity in reserve.
Our ship is designed and operated in compliance with the strict requirements of the International Maritime Organization, the UN agency that sets global standards for the safety and operation of ships, codified in the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention.
Greek State authorities and other international maritime surveyors, regularly inspect our ship. Their examinations focus on hull/machinery integrity and especially on life-saving equipment, safety and environmental protection items.
