Don´t fall sick @ MSC Splendida!!!!!

Second night @ MSC Splendida I had a terrible stomachache. At 3am I went to the front desk asking for a doctor and they told me that it was better to wait until next morning, afterhours service would be very expensive, so I did. Next morning I showed up at on board hospital, expalin what was happening to me and again they told me that to get medication from them I had to pay first a doctor visit that would be 40 euros (felt like they did not want to see me) I said I wanted to see the doctor anyway. Once with the doctor that did not speak english he said that it looked like apendicitis but like Tunis had "arabic" hospitals it was a better idea to wait until we arrive to Malta. They gave me some parecetamol pills and stomach protector (I found out later that it was not the right decision). I went with all my family for a walk at Tunis medina. When I got back I was feeling like dying, at that time the hospital was closed for lunch time so I went to my cabin. My sister told me that it was strange keeping apendicitis wainting and I´d better ask for a thermometer and check out my temp. My wife went to the hospital when they reopen and ask for the thermometer, they said that it was not working, she had to make big complains to get one, when she came back to the cabin I had 39.3, bad shape. The story is very long so I´ll continue tomorrow.....

Stay away from the doctor.

Kids had a great time.
