Went to the surgery this week they inoculated us against hep a typhoid tetanus and diptheria and polio also as we will be in the Dom Rep they suggested we go to the Pharmacy and get some Chloroquine tablets for Malaria as they had been informed it was a risk there .

If you go up to the blue 'Find a Question' box and select 'Medical' from the topics pulldown you will find a number of answers to your question. Typically the answer would be no, but you don't say which ports you are visiting and there are a few areas (closer to South America) where vaccinations may be a good idea or even compulsory. If unsure, contact your doctor. Can't help with the laptop question.

There are people who are experts on vaccinations. They are all health professionals, not cuisers. I have said on here before - in a matter so important, one would be crazy to seek advice from anyone other than a health professional. No one on this forum is either qualified to give, or indeed should give, such advice.

We are taking a western caribbean cruise in Feb. and I contacted the practice nurse this morning. The jabs she recommended, Hep. A and Tetanus, we had boosters of and they are still valid and typhoid is not really required as we will not be anywhere near contaminated water. As 'the caribbean' covers many different areas it would be advisable to contact your practice and get their free and up to date advice.

Single Supplements Not The Fau...

Freddie Moser's blog

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...

Gemma Coles's blog

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
