Q. Can I travel when I am pregnant?

Yes, depending on how far into your pregnancy you are. Please advise us at time of booking or as soon as you are aware that you are expecting a baby.

We regret that we cannot carry guests who have entered their 24th week of pregnancy or beyond at any point in their cruise. All pregnant women are required to produce prior to travel a doctor’s or midwife’s letter on headed notepaper stating that mother and baby are in good health, fit to travel and the pregnancy is not high-risk. 

The letter must also include the estimated date of delivery (EDD) calculated from both Last Menstrual Period (LMP) and ultrasound (if performed).

Please send your letter to the Health Services Department either via email or post:
