Hi. Planning to cruise for first time to western carribean onboard Star Princess. I have heard it's good to have been vacinated for Hepititus?? Is this true? Should I have certain vaccinations?
Thanks!

We did the Mexican Riviera and doctor suggested we get the Hepatitis shot. This being said have been to mexico before and did the Western Caribbean without shots and was fine. However, once you get the shots they are good for a lifetime so why take your chances?

The best person to ask is your physician. You may personal health issues that are outside the norm for most people.

Hepatitis A vaccination is recommended by the CDC for most people traveling to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Take care,
Mike
