It is always helpful to have an interpreter aboard who can facilitate communication with the Captain, crew and guests. While many family members are multilingual, there are often  occasions where New England Burials at Sea provides for special language requirements. Please advise us in advance for any, and we will do our best to provide a qualified communicator. Additional costs may apply, depending on on availability during your time frame.
