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!
