Is dependent on three things doctors advice, your insurance company’s terms and conditions and restrictions, and the cruise line’s policy. Some want a letter of ‘fit to travel’ at any pregnancy length but all have the same cut off point; 24 weeks. They all seem to suggest that the day you become 24 weeks pregnant, you must leave the ship. If you think we are being extra careful by mentioning both sexes we are just making the blog future-proof as well as non sexist. In the new film Blade Runner … no, we can’t spoil it.


Our advice. Pack the sea sickness bands as you might want to try them before drugs. They can be found in many colours to match outfits. Click here or picture. They are so cheap it is worth leaving them in your suitcase. Though they might help with normal pregnancy sickness… please let us know. Enjoy your cruise.

QUESTION: If I travel and I am more than 24 weeks pregnant am I technically un-insured and liable for all the bills?

ANSWER: Check with your insurance company and lawyer before you travel, but it appears all the companies say no travel.
