      Where will you be staying? The drinking water and sanitation standards vary a great deal. Some islands are very clean, and have safe water, others are very undeveloped and the water may not be as safe to drink. My husband and I had hepatitis A shots to be extra safe. Hepatitis A is a food borne disease that is very common in the Carribbean. It can be passed on by eating food prepared by an infected individual who doesn't practice good hygiene.

        If you are going on a cruise, have your travel agent e-mail your diet list to the cruise line and the ship's executive chef. If you eat in the formal dining room, the chef and head waiter will work with you. I tried to eat as many meals aboard ship as possible.

        You can get Evian water aboard ship and just about anywhere.

        Above all, try to pace yourself on excursions.

        Even if you are staying in a hotel, ask to speak with the head chef. He will work with you.

        All of this requires tipping very, very well. But it is better than getting in trouble.
