I am going on a the Seabourn Sun world cruise. I am concerned about taking the anti-malarial medication. I have heard that there are tremendous side effects. With just being in most ports for one or two days, it would hardly seem necessary especially since I will not be going out into the countryside. Any opinions or advice?
I may be visiting Belize later this year and I was advised that I would only need anti-malaria medication if I was planning to spend a lengthy amount of time in jungle areas. My doctor said it would be unnecessary for a stay of just a few days, or in the cities or islands. Depending on which countries you will be visiting, this may or may not be the same advice you would receive.
