Not tried to do it this way before when we have required antibiotics we have seen the doctor on the ship they do have an extensive range of drugs and this is one way of getting them but they will likely charge upwards of $50 for the consultation plus the medicine, but you will get a receipt and maybe able to claim some of this back depends on the condtions set out in your insurance.

One point I should have said if you need medication take ample with you plus a little extra as we once got stranded on the way home in Boston hit be very heavyt snow that closed the airport.

If your prescriptions are part of a long term treatment plan and they are likely to run out during your cruise, then it would be better to order extra before you leave. If you explain to your surgery why you will need extra they usually comply with your request. If you become ill on your cruise (as I did during Easter 2008 whilst on Sea Princess) you can go to your medical centre (check opening times) and make an appointment to see a doctor. I got seen immediately by a nurse (after filling in some personal details on a form) and then a doctor who confirmed my suspicions that I had an infection and needed anitbiotics. He prescribed them straight away. Overall, my tests, consultation with doctor and nurse and antibiotics cost me $130 which then worked out as £65. I didn't mind paying that much as I received good quality service. They gave me a form for insurance purposes too (which I didn't bother with as on past experience, with another illness I suffered, they may refuse to pay up if it occurred again). I'm not quite sure what you are trying to ask, but I hope my information helps. It is always best to go on holiday with all medication for the entire trip.

Enforcing a dress code policy

By Steve Fuller

Black tie nights. Formal attire, smart casual, resort casual, semi-formal. They all have different names and all mean a different type of expected outfits.I get frustrated at the lack of respect shown by some people who think the rule doesn’t apply to them. That the’re exempt and can wear what they like. Absolutely you can wear what you like and we all should have a choice on what to wear at dinner but please pay attention to the dress code policy and respect it.This is for everyo...

The weather stayed good for the sailing at the end of February, although windy the sun shone over them time they was on board...
