There’s a Doctor, But No Dentist
While cruise ships typically have a doctor and nurse on board to address various medical concerns, one notable absence is a dentist. Cruise ship medical facilities are primarily designed to handle general medical issues, injuries, and emergencies, but they often lack the equipment and expertise required for dental care.
Passengers with dental problems may receive pain relief and basic first aid, but for more extensive dental treatments, they would need to wait until the ship docks at a port with suitable dental services. It’s a notable limitation, and passengers are advised to address any dental concerns before embarking on a cruise to ensure a comfortable voyage.
