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.

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Fred To Enter The River Market

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Fred Olsen have long been one of my favourite cruise lines, Braemar was the first ship I ever did a ” proper cruise”. When I say proper I mean not a mini cruise or ship visit as it was a 14 night Canary Islands sailing.In the last couple of years Braemar has been one of the lines ships that have started to do river cruising. Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...
