Cannot find any advice regarding precautions for visiting: Catalina Island; St Maarten and Tortolain the West Indies. Do we need malaria tablets for any of these Island visits? From Brian Day, Pontefract.

This is a frequently asked question and it depends where you are visiting. For example Yellow Fever and Cartagena has been a recent and rather uncertain topic of discussion. Ideally you should consult your GP with a list of ports but for starters scroll up to the Find a Question box in the Cruise Answers screen and select Medical from the pulldown Topics section. Hope this helps.

Hi Debra Just got back from a Carribean Cruise and before going took advice from my Doctor. You do not need injections. We went on Ventura which visited Catalina Island, part of the Dominican Republic (which recommends Malaria tablets). As we could not get onto it (story of the cruise), it didn't matter. Have a lovely time!

Allure of the Seas Charlie Age 6

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

My name is Charlie and I have just been on Allure of the Seas. I have been on 3 other cruises before but this was my favourite. Mummy woke me up really early because we had to get a flight from Edinburgh and then we needed to get on a different plane in London. I watched 4 kids films on the flight. Miami airport was so boring it took us 2 hours to get out. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale for a night and got on the cruise ship the next day. We checked in but had to wait about 30mins before we co...
