Default Refrigerated Medicines

I recently started a new medicine that I self inject every so often. Will there be any problems bringing the med onboard with a doctors note, and will the ship store it more me? (It needs refrigeration)

Joe,

If you have the prescription or the pharmacy receipt there should be no problem with taking the medication onboard. I take injectable medication with me on each cruise.

Depending on the cruise line, ship and cabin type you have there may be a refrigerator in your cabin. If not then you can ask your cabin steward to have the medication stored for you. They will be happy to store it for you.

You can also contact the "Special Needs" department of the cruise line you are sailing to arrange storage before you sail. You can do this or you can have your agent do this for you.

Take care,
Mike
