If a company does not have a contract with that cruise line, they will not be permitted to board the ship and can only supply the item/s to the passenger at the pier.
Cruise lines are not just to let any company walk onboard their ships without a contract and proper credentials. Not only a safety issue or a liability issue, but it's also a security issue.
and not saying that has anything to do or not!
of course you have to have credentials to enter the boat
these are acquired in the port where the ship docks
is true these boats are privately owned
but does not necessarily require a contract. where a company has access only to make the delivery of health care to its customers
patients or passengers have the right to receive delivery of the companies that they want, for security reason if the customer want your supplier has the supplies to deliver at the boat ,and that have their own identities through the port, such as (port id and twic and the delivery by notifying the boat), so that the information is protected. .. no one can force him to do otherwise has
*Your information must be PROTECTED at all times (HIPAA)
The HIPAA Privacy Rule Provides federal protections for individually identifiable health information held by covered entities and business associates and Gives Their patients an array of rights with Respect to That information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so That It Permits the disclosure of health information needed for patient care and other important purposes.
people can choose who supplies them
what the contract is only to lead the person to one place (like cattle to a slaughterhouse)
