Default Medical facilities on ships

My wife and four year old are first time cruisers. I am taking my family to Bermuda for a large family reunion on royal Caribbean out of NJ. I am also celebrating my one year anniversary post liver transplant. I had my transplant in March 2013. My doctors have given me the ok to go on the cruise. I am 40 yrs old.

I am curious how well trained doctors are on Royal Caribbean or on cruise ships in general? Also, given that I take immune suppression drugs (to prevent my new liver from being rejected), do you have any advice on what to look for or avoid in terms of on board illness, risks for people like me. Also, if for some reason I needed to get evacuated (I will have extra insurance for this), how does this work? I honestly have no idea what to expect on this cruise.

There will be about 30 family members going so it will be fun no matter what! Thanks for your help and advice.
