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.
