I presume you mean if you attend the Medical Centre on the ship, you normally see the nurse first to take info from you [e.g. BP etc] it all depends on the medical problem you have, but there are fees for the consultation and the prescriptions/treatment. Most of the ships today have a good medical facility and a good range of drugs but if the ones you need are not available they usually arrange to pick them up at the next port of call, you should have a holiday insurance to help recover some of the costs but keep the receipts safe so you can claim when you get back home, but hopefully you will have a happy no need to see the Doc's cruise ...Bill.

Your River Cruise Questions An...

By Hannah Wilson

 Any one who has followed my Blog over the years knows that my favourite type of cruising is river cruising. I did my first river cruise about 6 years ago, the first of many, and I have never looked back. It ticks all the boxes for me, small ships, friendly staff and passengers, fabulous scenery all day every day, and being docked right in the centre of which ever city you are visiting so no long transfers, not to mention fabulous food!I just find that I enjoy these cruises so much more...

Cuba

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...

Lily Canderton's blog

The Truth is Venetians do not want to live in Venice any longer as their population dwindles with tourists often outnumbering residents, partly as a result of cruise ship visitors as the mega-cruise ships’ tens of thousands of passengers spilling into its narrow streets and canals, this mass tourism is causing irreversible damage on the fragile lagoon ecosystem and is endangering the environment of the city and its lagoon.Cruising into Venice Italy is one of those magical travel moments...
