Hi! I just want to share my cruising experiences with you. I have had Crohn's disease for about
18 years. I have also worked on cruise ships (both large ones with a full medical staff and small ones with no staff) since 1996. If I had active crohns and recent flare ups, my concern would be more that of how often you are in port, how many days do you go without docking, etc. It is comforting to have a medical staff and facility on board but they are limited in what they do and what they are used to dealing with. I only have had one excessive flare up and massive bleeding on board. Luckily, we were docked for the day and I went to the hospital for a week. That is an extreme example. My guess is that you are always within extra help, if anything was to happen. If you are worried about
being sick, be really careful about
what you eat, drink lots of peppermint tea and relax. There is nothing like being at sea to clear your mind, reflect on your health, and relax with your family. And be sure to take advantage of all the cool things in Mexico.
Hope this was helpful. I am a non-traditional "chronnie" and worry that I don't worry enough. Then again, I believe that was my downfall in the first place (chronic worrying).
Take care and have fun!
