I would go directly to Carnival's Special Needs Unit, they will be the only ones who really know if they can meet the INR check needs.  I also would offer to connect them to your husbands' specialist, just so they can double check all would be well.

I called special needs and they checked and said the ship cannot do it.  Maybe because it is a five day cruise ( we are supposed to be doing 2X’s 5days)

Switch to Xarelto or Eliquis and then you don't have to mess with INR testing and you can eat whatever you want.  Hubby much prefered the Xarelto to the Warfarin.

After learning that the reversal agents were far and few, I opted for Warfarin

Do of those "Doc in a box" kind of clinics do the INR tests ?  Seems that in FLA they might as there are so many retirees down there. 

My DH's Dr office uses a hand held gadget that only takes a finger stick and one drop of blood.  The results show on the screen in less than a minute.  I wonder if you could rent one of those for a couple of weeks from a medical supply company.

MD NOW Urgent Care

has

Rapid INR Testing

 

3 locations in the Ft Lauderdale area  ... I'd check the link and call the clinic of your choice to be sure

https://www.mymdnow.com/locations/broward-county-urgent-care/

 

I would assume that if this place does it there are others as well.
I googled walk in clinic in ft lauderdale fl  then checked websites for INR Test
