October 2015 - 16 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Barcelona To Houston) Cruise on Norwegian Jade
Got food poisoning 10/28 in Barcelona. Symptoms happened 4:15pm in stateroom, went to Medical, given shot, voluntarily stayed in room, bland diet delivered, just treated for symptoms, not food poisoning. Nov 1 suitcases were packed by crew and I was taken to a Clinic in Funchal Madeira, xrays, treated with respect, diagnosed, given antibiotic and clearance to travel. Ship doctor disagreed with clinic doctor, and coerced me into leaving ship as a71 year old female traveling alone in Funchal. Fortunately had trip insurance. However, missed my planned vacation and put into financial strain to pay for hotel stay, medical visit,etc. Always felt safe with NCL traveling alone, not anymore. The nurse and one dr. were great, but Head Medical Dr. was incorrigible.
