In this sense, it may vary the itinerary of the naval unit, even if in the opposite direction or beyond the usual route, transfer the passengers and vehicles on any other naval unit or means of transport, belonging or not to the carrier, directed to the destination port.
The Passenger is required to make sure, before departure, that there have been no changes to the time indicated on the passage ticket.
