Thanks, Kate and Geoff. I have done this itinerary before, but quite a while ago, so can't wait to see it all again! :D

This sounds great and hope that you have an enjoyable time. I would so love to be able to book something only weeks away rather than years away. :lol:

Panic Stations here! I mentioned I'd been to these islands before, and I knew you didn't need Visas 'in advance', but thought I would check anyway, in case things had changed. (I can't remember now, but IF 'Visas on Arrival' were required, the ship did a block booking and charged to your account). No 'specific' Visas necessary anywhere, but a blank page needed for each of the 4 countries. Checked passport....NO blank pages at all (and lots of the others had up to 5 stamps on them). :o :shock: So I'll have to renew my passport PDQ, even though it doesn't expire until Jan 2020! :cry:

Hope you get it sorted Gill. Seems a shame to have to pay for a passport that has over three years before renewal. :o
