It really varies by cruise line and ship. Are you considering a specific ship at this time?

John, I had the opportunity of visiting the ships hospital on board the Millennium while cruising in Europe. It seems many of us came down with a severe bronchial respitory infection. The facility was top notch. There were 2 doctors on call 24 hrs. a day (they are all wearing cell phones), 3 nurses and all spoke English well. On our first day at sea, there was a medical evacutation, too. I can speak very highly of my treatment and their procedures. I wish my doctor would react as well sometimes to illness. They have the latest EKG and x-ray machines. The passenger who was medivaced by the Royal Navy had internal bleeding and they flew her to England (we were in the Straights of Dover).
Bon Voyage

I had occasion to visit Cruise ship Doc on Regan Empress on a 10 day cruise in Januray of 1999. 10 day cruise and I had been sick with flu for 5 days. Don't know why I waited so long. He did not have anything specific for flu (there was nothing) but gave me something for nausa and by the next day I was FINALLY able to get back to dining room, as well as other stuff. Cost was reasonable (and Doc was very sympathetic) and I will never again hesitate to go to ship doc.
