Review of CMV Columbus deck 4 (Pacific)
Pacific Deck layout has the ship’s Medical Centre and 20 staterooms. Deck 4 is accessible via 6 passenger lifts and by stairs.
Medical Center is the ship’s hospital operated by resident doctors/physicians and nurses on 24-hour call duty. The infirmary (open between 9 am - 7 pm /doctor hours 9-11 am and 5-7 pm) 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 ship’s 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 Cruise And Maritime Voyages boarding card.
Along with public restrooms, here are the portside-location cruise cabins from 4102 to 4140, all of which are located portside and are in category 6P-Standard Twin Porthole (each with one Porthole window).
