Cruising with Broken Bones

Sure do.

Can you drink with the other arm... 


Sorry can't be more help - I've never broken anything - but make sure you have  enough OTC and prescription meds that you may need.

So... broke my arm a few days ago and now in a cast. Called the cruise line and they suggested a medical certificate.


Has anyone travelled with a cast? any issues?


We've never heard of a "medical certificate".
We've cruised with some health problems, both chronic and temporary, and we simply notified the special needs department of each cruise line in advance.  Some have a form to fill out, but it's not for medical "certification"; it's so they know what assistance you might need.


Good luck!


And DO make sure that you have enough pain meds for what might be extra activity, etc.

Had a broken bone (in the back) every cruise, but one with a broken ankle, never had any problems above the normal.


Oh forgot to mention, broke a toe one cruise when the ship rolled and I kicked a sun bed, hurt like hell couldnt put a shoe on for days, but still no real issue.

Cruising with broken bones?  Take care in the event of rough seas, hang onto those rails !  Tendering could be dodgy, take care there as well.


Above all enjoy !!.
