Emergency Services

Villa Vie Residences is equipped with expert medical staff and facilities for immediate healthcare needs. For serious cases that require emergency medical attention, we have partnered with a global emergency evacuation service company to provide swift on and off-shore evacuations. 

Prescriptions and Medications

Please provide us with a list of your prescriptions in advance, and our onboard pharmacy will be able to fulfill them for you.

Medical Visits
Complimentary medical visits include standard visits necessary if the Resident is feeling unwell or has been injured. Routine care or necessary ongoing medical visits beyond the standard visits will be charged an additional fee.

Medical Insurance 

Medical insurance such as VA or Medicare is not accepted. VVRI recommends that Residents obtain independent medical travel insurance.
We are in the process of providing resources for medical travel insurance options, which will be available for purchase by early 2024. These plans are designed to offer comprehensive coverage, ensuring peace of mind for all our residents. We'll keep you updated on the progress and provide detailed information as soon as it's finalized.

Trip Insurance 

We are currently in the process of establishing a partnership with an insurer to offer coverage for our 3.5-year journeys. However, segment-based insurance is already a practical alternative. Our aim is to provide you with comprehensive information and various options on this matter by early 2024, giving you ample time to secure the necessary coverage.
