First aid and medical situations

Large cruise ships carry a monumental amount of passengers, so it’s no surprise that ships that have more than a few hundred passengers will have a medical bay onboard. These will be complete with doctors and nurses, meaning should you become ill during your break you’ll have somewhere to go.

This also means that, unlike traditional holidays, you won’t have to visit a doctor that barely understands what you’re trying to say to them - which should be a peace of mind for all.

On top of this, if you need surgery whilst out on the ocean, then you can rest assured that there have been been minor surgeries performed before on cruise ships. This is a reassuring thought indeed for those with concerns!

This again provides a strong peace of mind when it comes to cruising. In the off chance you require it, there’s a good chance medical assistance will be around if you’re on a larger ship.

It’s always best to check what amenities are available on the cruise you’re considering before setting off.
