Default Carnival Cruis line medical exam

I'm waiting to take my pre employment medical exam for CCL & I just had a few questions. What are ALL the tests that will be done? What would make you fail the medical or make the company deem you "unfit for duty" and do you know the results of your medical before being approved/denied by carnival? Basically, will you have an idea if you failed the medical before the company officially tells you?

Any help would be GREAT!

Look here to see other lines forms - they're all basically the same.

You'll know during the exam if you've passed/failed most of it - other than what they have to send off (drug test usually).

Basically failure is anything that is 'outstanding' - i.e. infections, virus, broken bones, etc. If you have meds to cover an existing long term condition (like blood pressure) - it's ok. You can't be contagious and have to physically be able to do your job. The joke used to be "Can you see the wall? Can you touch your toes?" and you'd be in. Now the lines are concerned that your vaccinations are up to date (MMR, chicken pox), no STD's. etc.

Just do a search in this forum for 'medical' or 'medical exam' and there are a LOT of threads.

Thanks for answering back! When you said that you'd know during the exam if you have failed or passed ... Can you explain that more? Thanks

The doctor won't 'sign off' on the forms if you don't meet the requirements. Just like anytime else you go to a doctor and they find something. For instance - you have an infection and they'll prescribe antibotics . . come back when done and then the doctor OK's and signs the form.
