The ship’s Medical facility (forward location) is accessible by the 2 forward passenger elevators. The onboard hospital is operated by resident doctors / physicians and nurses on 24-hour call duty. The infirmary is open between 8 am – 8 pm (doctor hours between 8-11 am and 3-6 pm). It is equipped with defibrillators, external pacemakers, pulse oximeters, an ECG (electrocardiograph machine), thrombolytic and lab equipment.
Treatments at the ship hospital are equivalent to a private doctor’s visit. All treatments, tests and medications are at extra charge. The only exception is Bonine (seasickness medication) also available for free at the lobby Reception (24 hours). General health insurance policies do not apply, so buying cruise health insurance is recommended. The ship’s physicians are independent contractors and render medical services at a customary fee. The basic fee doesn’t include medication, tests or treatments. Payments are made via the Seabourn Cruises Encore boarding pass (cabin access / identification card, also storing your onboard account).
“The Restaurant” is the ship’s dining room / main restaurant, serving open-seating breakfast (7-9:30 am), lunch (11:30-2 pm) and dinner (7-9 pm). Dining room’s dress code is “elegant casual” (on most dinners) and optional “formal” (on specially themed nights). Reservations are not required. The Restaurant’s interior design features lattice work, crystal chandeliers, a wine tower, a grand piano for live performances in the evenings
