VIKAND appointed as Adora Cruises healthcare partner


Global healthcare specialist VIKAND has been appointed onboard healthcare provider for Adora Cruises. This collaboration means that each Adora ship will have a robust healthcare system in place for both passengers and crew, including onboard medical professionals, state-of-the-art facilities, remote support and more.

With experience managing 4,100 daily medical encounters worldwide, VIKAND works proactively to decrease health risks and improve the onboard environment leading to less disembarkations and healthier guests and crew as a result.

The company’s maritime healthcare systems and services have made it a leading provider of medicine and public health at sea. This includes procurement, installation, training and support for advanced biomedical equipment that is critical to onboard healthcare.

“We’re very pleased to be part of Adora Cruises launch and being actively engaged with the growing and important Chinese cruise industry,” said Peter Hult, CEO of VIKAND. “We provide proactive, high-quality healthcare services to over 220 cruise vessels worldwide and look forward to working closely with Adora Cruises’ onboard teams.”

VIKAND was chosen to run Adora Cruises’ healthcare operations because of its experience managing medical teams in complex maritime environments. The company’s uniquely proactive approach to crew and passenger health is designed to prevent injury and illness, and to holistically support human wellness at sea through world-class care.

A healthy environment for both workers and guests is fundamental to a successful cruise experience. That’s why VIKAND is working closely with Adora’s management team to support their operational and business goals.

“We always invest in the best. Adora Cruises is committed to offering best experiences to our Chinese and international guests.” said Ranfeng Chen, Managing Director of Adora Cruises Limited. “We trust that the partnership with VIKAND is key to providing the best healthcare services and solutions to our guests and crew members whose well-beings we care about most.”

Adora Cruises is dedicated to providing guests with premium cruise experiences. Adora Magic City, the first Chinese-built large cruise ship, is scheduled to set sail at the end of 2023. Mediterranea, another cruise ship in Adora fleet, is also expected to serve the Chinese market in the fourth quarter of 2023.

VIKAND will manage Adora Cruises’ onboard medical facilities, including operational standards and procedures, biomedical requirements, pharmacy needs, medical staffing and more, for a total healthcare solution that rivals any shoreside operation.
