No vaccinations are needed for Cape Verde, but I would strongly recommend you check with your GP for advice on Rio.

Have done the transatlantic on The Escape 4 times, twice visiting Cape Verde and staying in Rio each time. There are no special requirements re inoculation. I looked into it in depth the first trip and asked various doctors. No problems with mosquito's either unless you travel into deepest Brazil. No illness at any time. If you look into it you may find there are some measures suggested you could take but none are really required or necessary.

You will not need inoculations for Cape Verde or Rio. We did the transatlantic on the Escape 4 years ago, and are doing the same trip this year, again on the Island Escape. Hope you enjoy your trip.

I would check with your GP or NHS Direct they will be able to advise you. You will probably need malaria tablets, but check to see what else you will need. Enjoy your cruise.

We did the same trip last November,although we did not stay over in Rio, we did not have any inoculations, we were told by our GP that unless we were traveling up the Amazon there was no need. We did not eat ashore, we did buy drinks and Ice cream in the shopping Malls in Brazil, although I would not advise eating or drinking in Cape Verde, it is not a very pleasing place to say the least, the majority of passengers spent less than half an hour ashore there, even the Captain apologised for the place, but you form your own opinion,let's just say that I shudder when I see holidays advised in the travel agents window for the place! It is a wonderful trip on a lovely ship and marvelous value for money.

As long as you are up to date with the likes of tetanus & diphtheria, there shouldn't be any more cause for concern. I checked the World Health Organisation (WHO) website before traveling to Brazil (Natal) and we paid for the Yellow Fever jab (which lasts 10 years), and we bought the strongest kind of Malaria tablets, but that was only in case we ventured on a trip to the Amazon (though it proved too expensive). All other jabs, i.e. Hep A, B etc. and Polio I was up to date with due to a trip to South Africa in 2004. Normally, if you are stopping in a tourist area you shouldn't need the same requirements. On a cruise, even when the ship docks, it is the passengers choice whether to visit the destination, you can just remain on the ship! If uncertain in anyway, always check with a doctors surgery, make an appointment with a nurse.

There is currently a TV documentary on Channel 5 , showing the building of Regent Seven Seas Explorer. The first programme begins with chief executive Frank Del Rio outlining his vision for the luxury vessel and joins him in a personal quest to acquire 5 mi...
