This is something you should check with your doctors surgery.

Thanks for your far from helpful answer that is a tad late. I posted the question on 1st December 2007 and went on the cruise in April 2008. Yes I knew that I could contact a doctor but I rather hoped to get the information from people that had completed such a cruise rather than waste a doctor's time.

You will not need a Yellow Fever jab for that area. Honduras and Belize are malaria areas and if you are going to go ashore after dark then there is a definite risk however if you wear long sleeves and trousers and use a good insect repellant you should be free from bites. No one can guarantee this. In general mosquitoes never seem to come on board ships so stay onboard for those two ports if you are really worried. The rest of the ports are currently free from malaria carrying mosquitoes. The advertising say "It only takes one bite" but the risk, if you are careful is small. Sorry ...Ida.

Costa Concordia 5 Years On

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

I am sure most people will remember hearing the news when the Costa Concordia sank. This January we are 5 years on from this tragedy. The ship hit an underwater rock and then capsized near Tuscany. The ship had been carrying 4252 people and unfortunately 32 people drowned when the ship sank. I can remember it clearly seeing videos and images on the tragedy. I can’t imagine how these people felt being in this position. The captain of the ship was sentenced to 16 years in prison for...

P&O offer some fantastic islands and resorts in the Caribbean and have done for a number of years now. Returning to the same destinations doesnt seem to bother regular and repeat P&O customers because lets face it, when you are only in the ports for 1 day there is always something new to see or visiting your favorite beach may be something you really enjoy.Have you ever repeated an itinerary because you have enjoyed it so much?I have visited Cuba, Jamaica and Dominican Republic more t...
