On our Hawaii cruse on Princess, we went on an excursion and there was a nice older gentleman along with us who had fallen on board several days earlier and suffered a cut on his arm. Said the medical staff "charged him $135 to squirt some antibiotic on it put a bandaid on it". I know that the fee was more for the examination than the eventual treatment, but he was rather irked. By the time we saw him, the cut looked pretty bad (infected ) but he didn't want to go back and get charged more. We encouraged him to have it seen again, but shared some first aid supplies as well.
