P&O, RCI, Celebrity, NCL & I suspect many more line do not allow infants under 6 months to cruise. At the risk of teaching Mommy & Daddy to suck eggs, I'll just say one word......Norovirus. Regards.

Re;....norovirus. apparently a 5month old baby is at no more risk than over 75 year old, does that mean everybody over 75 should stop cruising? obviously mummy and daddy are aware of the norovirus and if the baby had any complications at all in the first three months they wouldn't be going anywhere, breastfed babies have a better immunity than bottlefed or infants on solids.....thanks for your comments .

Hi, I went on a thompson cruise around the med with my 8 month daughter in may 2008 and it was fantastic. It was a super holiday for all of us. I would definately recommend that the baby is bottle feeding as it will make life easier on board. Would recommend a cruise for a small baby as everything is so close by and convenient, we hardly got of the ship and just enjoyed relaxing onboard. I believe thompson sail from various ports in the uk. I have booked to go on a cruise with P & O from Southhampton as we dont fancy a long flight this may again, we are all really looking forward to it.

La Spezia ? where.

By Nicola Milligan

Mediterranean cruises are calling into several ports depending on the size of the cruise ship. So Livorno is commonly know as the port to visit Florence and Pisa. This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
