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!

Why is it all about the kids?

By Leanne Mudd

Royal Caribbean announced last month the exciting new features for Independence of the Seas after her refit in early 2018, but I can’t help feeling it’s all about the kids! And what are we going to loose on board to make room for these new features as they are not building an extension to accommodate it all.I sailed on this ship when she first launched back in 2007 and loved it back then. When i went back in 2016, it felt like she hadn’t changed, which in some ways was good ...

The UKs favourite family ship ...

By Rosie Taylor

Rosie Taylor's blog

The Independence of the seas first sailed over 10 years ago now and has spent most of the summer months sailing out of Southampton. The ship is purpose built to deal with all sorts of weather and is very popular with the Brits.It doesnt matter who you ask about the Independence… they always have great feedback and find it hard to look at other ships as an alternative.Just recently, however a few have said the carpets are a bit worn in the cabins, could do with a lick of paint, the smoke...

Will I be below the water line?

By Jo Cunningham

Jo Cunningham's blog

“Will I be below the water line?” is a question that I am frequently asked when selling both river and oceans cruises. For an oceans cruise this is a simple question to answer, as whilst the lower deck cabins are numbered 1 or 2 and sound close to the water, there are always at least a couple of crew decks below, meaning that even on a low passenger deck you are still very clear of the water.River boats are smaller though and typically only have 3 or 4 decks to them, with deck ...
