The following outlines the procedures followed in the event of departure delays/cancellations.

Once a departure has been missed it remains the active departure until 1 hour prior to the next departure at which time that departure becomes active. For example, a departure scheduled for 8:00 AM is delayed and there is another scheduled for 1:00 PM. At 12:00 noon reservations on the 1:00 PM are priority; reservations on the 8:00 AM are next in line; non reserved passengers are handled (based on numbers issued at the ticket office) after ALL reserved traffic has been accommodated. This process is followed throughout the delay period.

Reservations for the current departure have first priority.

In the event of multiple cancellations the second priority would be the first cancelled departure, then the second, etc. This is followed until all reserved traffic is accommodated. This procedure ensures that customers who have been waiting longest are accommodated first after the current departure reservations. Last priority is any non-reserved traffic. This is handled in order of check-in based on numbers issued at the terminal.

Customers are advised to maintain contact with ticket offices when there are delays to scheduled departures, the Apollo will be operating on a "Load and Go" basis and there will be very little, if any, notice given. Check in time for all departures is 1 hour prior to the information posted. Once loading is complete the vessel will depart. The ONLY exception will be an emergency, i.e. medical as confirmed by a hospital/clinic.
