Overview

Who are you going to call if it all goes wrong at sea? Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always absolutely real, CRUISE SHIP SOS is a unique account of one incredible year at sea for Dr Ben MacFarlane. After spending a year saving lives at 35,000 feet as a repatriation doctor Ben then decided to take to the seas and spend a year travelling the world as a ship's doctor. During this year Ben experienced everything from passengers falling off climbing walls on the ship or off camels during drunken excursions on dry land through to looking after lonely ladies with broken hearts and with a dose of middle-aged businessmen who do some real damage trying to impress the aerobics instructor in the gym. Join Ben and his passengers and find out why ship doctors think bar stools should carry health warnings, and why no amount of sharks, pirates or tidal waves will ever be as dangerous as the midnight buffet.
