There are situations where a Dentist may be on a cruise for a personal vacation and may notify staff of their availability if a dental emergency does occur – but don’t count on this being the case.
While it’s possible that a large cruise ship could have a dentist on board, don’t assume there will be one.
If you encounter a dental emergency while on a cruise, you can visit the the ships Doctor.
They can prescribe medication for infection or pain and assist you in finding a Dentist once you get to port.
Cruises that offer long sailings, like world cruises are more likely to have a dentist on the ship, whereas, cruises under 14 days are less likely to have a dentist.
