Thanks for your response, we have the yellow fever shots from another cruise (one hassle done!) however we were totally floored by the Brazil Visa cost and process. We read some of the travel warnings out about Brazil and this only added to our worry. We are supposed to go at the end of February on the Royal . We just read where the Royal is being transferred to P&O in April of 10 , so this may be our last chance to cruise on her. We've enjoyed the ship so much in the past.
