When I did the QM2 back from New York I didn't need to get a Visa. The airline provided a form to be completed which was handed into the immigration stations on entry. If you enter the US by sea then the cruise line should supply this form for you to complete. The only real exceptions are if you have to declare any criminal convictions or anything like tha.

Entering NY on a cruise ship is the same as entering on a plane - you get the visa waiver form to complete.

All UK passport holders can enter the US under the Visa waiver programme. You have to answer a series of questions and provided that you can say no to all of them, then you don't need to apply for a Visa. If you cant answer alll the questions in this way then you do need to apply for a Visa.The vast majority of UK citizens qualify for the Visa Waiver programme. if you are in any doubt, check the US Consulate website. I can confirm that like the airlines, the ship will provide you with both the Visa Waiver form (one to be completed by each passenger) and a US Immigration Form (one to be completed by each family.

We are booked to travel from Dubai 21.3.09 to Southhampton . I have a Fiji Passport and my wife ARUNA PRASAD NAGIN has Australian paasport. Please advise if wer need Oman Visa and if so where can we get it. I have read somewhere: "Common Visa Facility with the Emirate of Dubai: Travellers bearing an entrance visa from the Emirate of Dubai are not required to obtain a separate visa for the Sultanate of Oman. The Entry stamp or Visa for Dubai is recognized as an entry visa to Oman also." Is this correct ? Hemendra Nagin.

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...

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 ...
