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

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.
Yes . my dad came on the cruise with us this time and he his also is a diabetic . there is a well stocked medical bay on boared with very well trained staff.
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.
