There are doctors on cruise ships, and they are usually included during the initial meeting with passengers to be more easily identified during your cruise. However, if you're planning to use the onboard doctors, it is a good idea to buy travel insurance in advance, because visits and medicine purchases once the cruise has sailed can get expensive. Also, check with your insurance carrier whether your regular health insurance covers you during your trip, because often they don't. Onboard octors are available 24 hours per day.
