  1. Hi, As no one could give us an answer, we decided to spend the day on the ship instead as we had spent sometime in Gibraltar a couple of years back.. So unfortunately cannot tell you if a visa is needed..
  2. Morning all you wonderful sailors, I was wondering if anyone can advise me on something. We are doing the Best of the Western Med cruise with Celebrity Reflection on the 18th June and one of the ports is Gibraltar. My husband and I have both done Gibraltar before and feel it an unnecessary cost to apply for a UK visa (we require this as we are from South Africa) for this one day stop and that we would rather spend the day on the boat with our feet up and chilling. My question is: if we stay on the boat would we still need a visa? and can we stroll on the pier side or does the pier form part of UK waters? I did send Celebrity Reflection an email but have not had a response.. Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated Regards Cheryl
  3. Thanks on searching around I am starting to realise that I have to rethink my plans. .
  4. Thanks Keith appreciate the feedback
  5. Morning all you wonderful knowledgeable cruisers, please can you assist me. We would like to do a Med cruise in the middle of December (winter time) leaving from Marseilles, France and the ports are Barcelona, Valencia, Mallorca, Valletta, Messina, Rome, Livorno, Genoa then back to Marseilles. My question is besides it being winter how rough do you think the sea will be. I do have a tendency to get sea sick, but love cruising. We will be travelling from South Africa and Unfortunately cant do it any other time. What are your suggestions, we open to any. Travelling to the warmer parts of the world is to far and I really do not want to be flying for 33 hrs... So if anyone has attempted these winter cruises please be so kind as to give me some feedback to what we can expect or if we should dump the idea and go elsewhere. I await your feedback.. Thank you
