Default Refrigerators

My family is sailing on the Radiance on 4/28 to Hawaii. My son has to keep his medicine refrigerated. Do the cabins have minifridges? Or do I have to keep the medicine with the ship's doctor?

They have minifridges. My wife also has medication that must be refridgerated, and we cruised on the Radiance this past Feb.

Hi.
We requested in advance a refrigerator for my daughters insulin. Thought we were all set until we got on board and there were none available. (I had waited a couple of hours thinking that they would bring it). My advice is to make the request in writing in advance and to go to the pursers desk immediately upon arrival to confirm. We had to use a Mickey Mouse setup for the week.

Default Refrigerators - Mickey Mouse

Hey Kathy J
Thanks for your input and advice. What did you mean by Mickey Mouse setup? Just in case we have to go that route what did you do to keep her medicine cold?

Does anyone know if I can keep the medicine with the Doctor on board? A two week supply of his medicine costs about $980.00 and we can't afford to let to spoil.

Any advice is gratefully appreciated.

We had her insulin in a small cooler on top of a bucket of ice in the room "chiller". Insulin can be stored at room temp for a month however the long acting insulin that we bring in case of pump failure also has a shelf life of 30 days therefore we have to throw it out upon our return.
Bottom line, send in the letter then go to guest relations immediately.
I am sure though that you could store it with the doctor though that may restrict your access to it.
