Nearly all ships have their own newspapers with upto the minute news. Not in full detail but scaled down in every nationality. As we live in a very tecnological age the news is always available even online on board ships.

Some port will stock the English papers but its normally available quite later than over here we got one in Madera at about 1pm and TOTE book makers have an international dialing number and other bookies may have the same,you can use the Internet to place bets providing you have an account,So yes difficult and expensive but it is possible?

Don't know about the betting bit of your question but regarding newspapers...the ship do put a basic daily news sheet on the noticeboard by reception...and British newspapers are available in most mediterranean ports of call but they cost more (around 2 euros) and sometimes are 'yesterdays news' so remember to check what day it is!!!!

Many ships produce a newspaper with the daily news from Britain or America or wherever. You can normally collect your own copy from around the reception area. As for placing a bet, well, you see what the others say but I would suggest that if you can't do without it just go to the casino and lose your money in comfort. Dear, dear, dear I've heard it all now. ..Nei.

Gina Rowan's blog

With the announcement of several new ‘innovative’ ‘groundbreaking’ ‘futuristic’ Mega-ships being built and released in 2018-19, I’m beginning to wonder if the cruise-lines are getting a bit ahead of themselves. Employing A-list global architects and designers to create all these new gadgets & gimmicks which promise to be ‘transformational’, ‘industry firsts’ which will ‘erase boundaries’ for the Sophistic...

This is AZAmazing!

By Blair Campbell

Blair Campbell's blog

Cruise lines are often difficult to differentiate between each other and often you become spoilt for choice. Let me tell you why I have this soft spot for Azamara Club Cruises. I feel that as a company they tick all the correct boxes for me as a bit of a culture vulture. They have an amazing spread of itineraries despite only having TWO ships (That are identical sisters) The Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey.
