Wondering if all of the Ebola Virus and Traveler's advisory is going to affect this cruise.
Mazel Pernell Aug 14, 2014 at 01:05 PM

Hi Dawn, I was booked on a trip with a similar itinerary for March 2015 but with another tour company. Last week the tour of the west coast of Africa was cancelled and replaced with back to back tours along the African east coast and nearby island countries. My guess is that Road Scholar will err on the side of caution and cancel their trip as well. I'm also a solo traveler who wants to avoid the single supplement whenever possible so I might be interested in rooming with you. I'll keep my eye on this trip. Let's keep in touch. I'm leaving today for the RS Baltic Capitals Seaside Capitals tour so will probably not check back here until the end of the month.


Dawn Vincent May 30, 2014 at 10:54 AM

I am now booked for the April 2015 sailing. Would very much like to find a roommate, female, probably over 65, as the single supplement on this trip is rather pricy.


Dawn Vincent Mar 29, 2014 at 02:47 PM

Would really like to do this in 2015, but it isn't listed as yet. Maybe they want to see how the 2014 voyage goes.


Susan Hindle Sep 13, 2013 at 08:45 PM

We're looking for someone who was on the 2013 West Africa Voyage and can give us a brief evaluation of the adventure. We are very interested in doing this trip in April 2014.


Camille Terracciano Mar 11, 2013 at 08:08 PM

The Final Info packet says we should bring waterproof pants. Where does one buy such an article. Are they really necessary?
Helen Sternheim Mar 11, 2013 at 08:20 PM

A sporting goods store, LLBean. I have no idea if you need them.
Judith Hayes Mar 13, 2013 at 01:18 PM

I have waterproof pants from a cruise to Antarctica. Zodiac landings can be wet. Our ship has been used for polar trips in the past. I cannot imagine exploring tropical sites wearing Wellingtons and waterproof pants. I'm bringing Teva's and hope my pants don't get too wet.


Camille Terracciano Mar 06, 2013 at 11:27 AM

I live in Tinton Falls, NJ. Does anyone live near enough so we can share a cab to Newark Airport 3/31?
Michael Shapiro Mar 06, 2013 at 06:24 PM

Sorry - we live in DC and are leaving from Dulles Airport.
Judith Hayes Mar 07, 2013 at 06:27 PM

Sorry-I'm flying out of San Francisco.


Judith Hayes Feb 19, 2013 at 08:22 PM

Just had my appointment today with the International Traveler's Health Clinic in San Ramon, CA. I already have valid yellow fever, Hep A and Hep B, polio, influenza, and pneumonia. I got a typhoid shot and a TP (since CA has had an outbreak of whooping cough). We decided that since this is a cruise and we won't be spending much time with the local populations that meningitis probably not necessary. I got prescriptions for Cipro (precautionary) and Doxycycline (malaria).
Judy Walsh Feb 28, 2013 at 08:26 AM

This is Judy from Annapolis. I do always have the typhoid protection current but do the four pills (live virus so must be refrigerated) as they are coverage for 5 years versus 2 years for the shot. Starting to think about our cruise again...have all the shots from a recent trip to Laos and Myanmar in December. Will be on a RS trip to Nicaragua before we depart for Africa. As for malaria, I have done Larium, Malarone and Doxycycline over the years. Malarone or Doxycycline are both fine...avoid Larium if they even still prescribe it. Cipro a good idea...it even calmed an ugly unknown bug bite while rafting in Nepal (no road access). This will be my seventh trip to Africa but first to West Coast other than South Africa and Namibia. Excited!
Michael Shapiro Mar 05, 2013 at 08:58 PM

Thanks, Judy. Very helpful info. I've had all my shots, except meningitis, and I decided to take it, based on the advice of a travel expert who looked at the map. My husband's not getting it. One more Hep B shot closer to departure and I'm set. Since you're from Annapolis, and we're in DC, do you have any desire to say hello voice to voice? If so, my cell is 202 365 8114, and I'm around from 11 am to 9 pm on and off. After that, it's TV time with the husband! Livvie Mellan Shapiro


Michael Shapiro Feb 10, 2013 at 03:00 PM

Still hoping folks will weigh in on whether you're getting typhoid shot, Hep B, meningitis and polio. I already got yellow fever, and Hep A. Other 4 is recommended by our travel expert. Thanks for telling me what you're doing. Livvie (and Michael Shapiro)
Les & Carol Feb 10, 2013 at 05:24 PM

I've been away from this web site for a while and havent' checked for messages. We've only gotten yellow fever shots but want to get and am having trouble getting a prescription for malaria pills.
