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.

This Is A Really Good Deal But...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Price is obviously a huge factor when booking and cruise or holiday, so looking through the deals on our website 599 per person for a 10 night cruise looks like a really good deal. A look at the itinerary though might make you think it`s a bit cold in this region in December.P&O`s Aurora is one of her much loved older, smaller by today`s standards, ships. This itinerary sets sail on 6th December 2017 and calls at Hamburg, at 2 day stop in Copenhagen, Olso, Amsterdam and Zeebrugge for Bru...

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...
