No vaccinations required but make sure you have plenty of sun lotion,good quality sun glasses and a safari hat if you're super sensitive.

Vaccinations are not compulsory, although some are "recommended" e.g. Hep A (had this done last week and experienced no side-effects or pain whatsoever). My GP also recommended having Yellow Fever Vaccine as we are visiting Isla Margarita as there was an outbreak there a few years ago. Wouldn't be a problem visiting Isla Margarita without the vaccine, but was concerned over entry into our next ports of call. Having read about the symptoms/effects of Yellow Fever we are planning to have this done next week! Some cruise lines also recommend having a flu vaccine. Also, I always make sure my tetanus jab is up-to-date.

This is a good and very full reply. I would agree with all of it. We had hepatitis A vaccine and yellow fever vaccine prior to visiting that coast. I think that yellow fever vaccine is a pre-requisite if you are visiting Devil's Island, French Guyana just a little further along from Isla di Margarita so if you are on the north side of South America an advisory phone call may be a good idea. ...

I am no connoisseur, but my husband is. If ever I need to get into his good book, I know what to serve. I took him to an amazing restaurant for his 40th (see below!).I am a little bit of a food snob, but that all changed when I experienced Johnny Rocke...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Watching the Royal wedding this weekend, and looking at the lovely outfits, I started to think about what I am going to pack for my Azamara cruise next week. Choosing an outfit for any special occasion can be daunting, and time consuming, and a Royal Wedding must be stressful to say the least but packing, for a holiday is another thing altogether!The first cruise I ever went on was Fred Olsen Braemar sailing from Southampton. Packing for that was easy, just take everything you want as there i...
