This week’s story was written by Laura McKenzie about the compassionate medical care her husband received in Germany.
My husband and I enjoyed an amazing cruise in Germany in summer 2018. We had a great time, but suddenly my husband fell sick. We visited a hospital, and as scared as we were about the situation and the language barrier, German medical professionals were amazing in all senses. Their kindness and their expertise allowed us to have my husband recover very fast and keep enjoying the rest of our cruise in their amazing country. Thanks Germany!
