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.

Thanks Brian, seems like I'm making it up as I go along, don't it. .... Neil.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
