Medical Center is operated by resident doctors/physicians and nurses on 24-hour call duty. The infirmary is open between 8 am – 8 pm (doctor hours 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 Oceania Cruises Insignia boarding pass (cabin access / identification card, also storing your onboard account).
The Atrium Lobby area has guest services desks: Reception Desk (assistance, dining reservations), Concierge Desk (starboard) and Destination Services (shore excursions booking and information).
Cruise cabins from 4000 to 4056, of which G-Interior, and the rest are Deluxe OceanView (categories C1 and C2).
