50% of cruise passengers will need some sort of medical attention, according for Dr Deb Mills of the Travel Medicine Alliance. That means one of every couple cruising will have some sort of medical need. Many are minor and by packing your own personalised first aid kit for your cruise to deal with the 10 main medical things that can happen to you or your family on a cruise, you can have less stress, worry, be prepared and (importantly) save money by not having to pay to see the doctor or nurse in the ship’s medical centre or try and deal withy foreign pharmacies and brands. I discuss the 10 things that are most likely to occur and what you need to bring along.
This is not medical advice and the products and brands I mention are ones that I personally use and work for me. You should consult your pharmacist, doctor and use products you are familiar with and they recommend.
