    On the Disney Fantasy, how many doctors are on board and what are their specialties?

    Ahoy Julie -

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am pleased to help with your question about medical staffing onboard Disney Cruise Line. You will be happy to know that at the Health Center, there is a doctor and nurse on call 24 hours/7 days a week to care for the medical needs of guests onboard.

    As a Family Medicine Doctor, I was intrigued with the idea of working on a cruise ship, and I was pleased to know that when I am ready to do that, I qualify to work with Disney Cruise Line. The physicians onboard work for an outside agency called Vanter Cruise Health Services and per the information on their site, the Disney Fantasy retains at least 3 physicians and 4 nurses at every sailing.

    Physicians that work on cruise ships usually specialize in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine or Emergency Medicine as these are specialties that can take care of a wide variety of common illnesses for patients from infants to geriatrics.

    Thanks for asking your questions here at the Panel, Julie, and please come back if you need more help!
