If they are at sea and there is a very serious medical issue, they call in a medivac helicopter.

We've seen it once. The ship actually stopped. Seas were calm. Maybe an hour or so a helicopter appeared. They secured part of the deck (i.e. no passengers), and they did a litter on a winch to take the patient off. After the chopper left, the ship revved-up and continue the cruise.

Yes, IL would be possible (even enjoyable!) on a cruise ship. It might be more expensive than an IL apartment, though. 1poormom is in IL at over $3K per month. A single week-long cruise will typically be $1000 or more. That's over $4K per month. If you can afford it it would be an option. And you can use MedJet insurance so that if you ever have to be evacuated they will get you home.
