No one on here is aware of your medical history and unqualified to give medical advice. It is unlikely you will need anything serious but for peace of mind contact your GP and the practice nurse will go through it with you based on your itinery. They have access to the latest up to date information. Although there is nothing complusory there may be some advisory ones like hepatitis.

No vacs needed. Very easy to DIY if you only go to this site that I direct every one to - Try google and 'cruise ports call boards' - the first result will give you all the info under the section for each island .

We have never had vaccinations when visiting the Caribbean islands you mention. Our practice said no need.

Ask the pharmist at your local Boots. They are always very uptodate delighted to help and free. No I do not work or have any conection with boots. But have found there advice to be better than my GP's.

We have visited the Carribben several times in the last few years and we have never had vaccinations, if you are at all worried about anything it is best that you speak to your practice nurse and she will be able to advise you on what you have to do, she will most likely give you a leaflet that explains everything. I am not a qualified nurse but I do have some knowledge of how the medical profession works. BUT DO SEEK THE PROPER ADVICE FOR YOUR OWN SATISFACTION. Hope this is of some help for you.

Not a doctor but have visited the caribbean many times(cruising and not) and all I have needed is a tetanus booster. Phone your local surgery and ask their proffesional advice, it's free and it will put your mind at ease.

A Right Royal Caribbean Dress ...

By Hannah Wilson

Over the last few years there has been a general drift towards more casual attire during the evening on certain cruise lines. P&O and Cunard have done away with semi-formal evenings and now just have Formal or Casual attire while Celebrity have introduced Evening Chic which is really evening casual by another name. The latter is proving especially popular with men who no longer have to find room in their suitcase for their dinner suit, also those who hate formal attire when they are on ho...

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
