Most cruise lines do a drugs test and a comprehensive blood test. Checking your liver function, kidney function, full blood lipid profile, HDL levels, LDL levels, serum triglycerides etc.
Other basic things like blood pressure, eye sight, hearing.
Basically they want to make sure that you are health before hand so you don't come on board and then try and sue them for some condition claiming it was due to them. They also don't want to set themselves up with someone that they then have to treat onboard.
If you have figures that are slightly off or elevated that can be treated without medication, then you should be ok.
If you are on a myriad of drugs that could affect your performance in a job then that could be a problem.
Ie if you have asthma and you are applying for shore excursion team and plan to assist with diving then that would be a problem.
If you have asthma and you are the financial controller and desk based then it wont be a problem.
