Medical services onboard?
Are there medical services onboard? What if I get sick on a cruise ship, I have asthma or other illness?
I think just in the case of flights you have to announce them about your disabilities, illness and condition; these information can be important regarding your insurance too.
Still, you definitely have to announce them about your asthma, diabetes, allergy etc. so that they can surely be prepared. You also make sure that you bring the proper amount of medicines you usually or occasionally use.
Wheelchair users and those with walking difficulties should learn about the possible problems on their cruise in advance (if there is access for disabled people and wheelchair users for instance).
You must also check if your travel insurance covers the possible disease you have and if needed, ask a specialist and NEVER FORGET TO READ THE SMALL PRINT! :)
