just come back from cruise on carnival's fascination.......hubby had a fainting spell......nurse was by his side within 2 mins.......was taken by wheelchair down to medical center.....doctor saw him right away......put him on heart monitor......was kept on it for 2 hrs (due to having heart trouble).......his bp was too low.....they took blood work......gave him meds to raise his bp.....& he went back down 4 hrs later.....had another ekg.....& saw doctor......all this only cost $375.....much cheaper then our er in usa. we do have travel insurance that will pay for this. I was really impressed with the ship's medical crew!!!!
