Medical Center at Sea

Good morning,

One of the questions I am often asked about cruise ships is, "What happens if I get sick or hurt while I am on a cruise?" 

Freedom of the Seas has a very complete medical center where sickness and injuries can be treated until guests can be transferred to a hospital on shore.

There is a staff of two physicians and two nurses and another support staff.  They do a super job of making sure guests are well cared for while at sea.

All the best,
Lois

Thank you for sharing this information!! we went on a cruise last summer with all 10 of us....I saw in the middle of the night a man being transported by stretcher into smaller boat with a siren! but the whole thing was very efficient, and it appeared that everyone knew exactly whet they were doing.

It's nice to know there is help right there on board should the need arise.

I had not even thought of this...but one would have to have something in place, I suppose.

i'm sure it is the last place folks want to need, but the most grateful to have if necessary.

Must fill me in. Do you work on the ship? Or take lots of vacations on the ship? Curiosity is killin' the cat :-)
