If you want advice about vaccinations, consult a medical professional. No-one on here is qualified to answer such questions.

The practice nurse at your local GP surgery will probably be able to help you.

I wouldn't disagree with the others but I have not known any who have had vaccinations or tablets for that trip. I would suggest, however, that you use copious amounts of anti mosquito cream if you are going ashore. To this day I have never seen a mosquito on a modern ship whilst it is sailing. But, sure, take advice from the experts. .....Neil.

I seem to recall that HAL require proof of yellow fever, and X have just announced that it is 'good to have'....so I would suggest that Princess are the ones to tell you what is needed or if you will be denied boarding without the certificate.

If anything justifies seeking a medical opinion, this does. "I seem to recall" is a lunacy as far as yellow fever is concerned. A ship that required you to have a yellow fever certificate would be sure to let you know well before you sail.

We cruised the Panama Canal with Princess last April. We got conflicting opinions about the yellow fever vaccination. Our Practice Nurse suggested we have the vaccination, but when we contacted our local centre (not all GP's practices are designated to give the vaccine) we were told by them that it might not be necessary as we were on a cruise and would not be ashore when mosquitoes were most active. In the end I emailed Princess who informed us that the yellow fever vaccine was not required. However, I would check with them just in case things have changed during the last few months.

SUPPLEMENTS THE CURSE OF THE ...

By Janet Goodwin

Sounds like something that JK Rowling could use a title for one of her novels but in the real world the word supplement strikes fear into the heart and wallet of many a single traveller. We receive quite a few enquiries where people make a comment about supplements and how unfair they are, but is the cruise industry cashing in or are the supplements part of a wider dilemma? Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
