The only ship I know provides this facility in it's medical centre is Peter Deilmann's Deutschland, which is mainly aimed at the German market though it can be booked in the UK and has English speaking crew. It is a very attractive ship and quite small --about 25,000 tons Ithink. There may of course be others--you need to check with the lines you are considering. Cynthia.

Thank you for taking the trouble to answer, yes we are looking at all the lines. When you read the general advertising for the cruise companies they give the impression that it is no big problem. We are beginning to realise that although cruise companies can look after your dietary needs, some medical problems pose obstacles that may be beyond their scope?

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
