And, where else would you be better taken care of than on a ship? Almost anyplace. The doctors on ships are perfectly OK by and large, but their facilities are limited, and they're not specialists. If they had the kind of resources that are available on land, nobody would ever have to be medevaced, yet that happens all the time.
One small reminder, if you are sick and lie on the precruise statement and you cause financial loss to the cruise line by requiring that the ship be cleaned or delay departure, you could be sued and lose a lot of money. The cruise lines have good lawyers.
