Your travel ins will not cover on board any visits to the shops docter, or any treatment given by him or the nurse ,take plenty of your own medication with you and should be ok, docters very fees if used sky high d e brooking torqua.

My experience of the medical facilities on board OV was very positive. Very well equiped with excellent professional staff. As with all cruise lines it is not free so Travel Insurance a must.

Passengers are expected to take sufficient medication for the journey and as there is a fridge in your cabin on OV you will be able to store any there. There is a ships doctor and nurse on board but if you are concerned I would contact OV direct and speak to them about additional supplies you may require. They are very helpful and this will give you peace of mind. If for some reason you are unable to contact them yourself then get your holiday agent to contact them and arrange any extra help you require. Be warned visits to the Doctor are very costly although you should be able to get a refund on your insurance when you return. Again you need to check this.

Your travel agent should ask if anyone has any medical conditions and will advise OV at the time of booking. You need to contact your insurance also to advise as you will need to go through medical screening to insure you are covered correctly. Have a good trip.

Do exactly as you would do at home - take Lucozade or some other sweet drink or glucose tablets.

Wonderful Mexico

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...
