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!

Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
