You won't be able to invite any guests aboard your cruise ship. Only passengers with valid seaboard passcards will not allowed through the security checks. Your seaboard passcard is your only passport to access on & off the cruise ship.

Most ships now have much tighter security and the answer is no but you should enquire at the Guest Relations desk to see if your ship will allow but if you do want to do this do it well in advance and not the night befor.

Arjani - Answered a Question by Drury (31 May 07 00:34)

The two earlier answers are generally correct, BUT not so in every case. . . I wrote a lengthy answer a few days back to the query regarding my favourite ship. The CRYSTAL SYMPHONY it is. And now, another reason why CRYSTAL is such a helpful cruise line: they allow me to have guests visit me in port. I have done it twice. The first time in San Frnacisco. I invited my "best man" and his wife; the second time in Miami my guests were my sister, her husband and their son and daughter-in-law. The cruise line however requires me to send them certain details of the visitors some 20 days in advance, viz. their names, birthdates, Vehicle Driver ID numbers, and current address. Which is OK by me and my guests. So, once again, (I do assure you that I do not own any stock in CRYSTAL) I highly recommend that line for warm, friendly, efficient cruising! Kobad Arjani ( .

By Zara Kelly

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination.

When I say proper I mean not a mini cruise or ship visit as it was a 14 night Canary Islands sailing.In the last couple of years Braemar has been one of the lines ships that have started to do river cruising. Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...
