Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Winchester (24 Jan 09 20:30)

No, but if your cruise starts or ends in in to USA then you will need a visa waiver form which will be issued to you and more importantly you will need to fill in the ESTA form on the internet well before leaving the UK. ....Neil.

This illustrates a point I make often on here - no one on here is an expert on the visa requirements, not even Neil and Ida. For example, what nationality are you? Are you visiting any US islands? Unless we know this, the question is impossible to answer.

Very good point..... I hadn't noticed the address apart from Scarborough and assumed !!!!!!!!!!! Most of my answer still stands though. Apologies... Neil.

Not quite Neil! ESTA is an automated system used to determine the eligibility of visitors to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and whether such travel poses any law enforcement or security risk. As far I can see citizens of Trindad & Tobago are not part of the Visa Waiver Programme and therefore ESTA cannot be used. I believe the only way is to contact the US embassy for a visa. As has been said no one is an expert here. Regards Brian.

It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

Norwegian Cruise Line to Add ...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
