  • Cruise while on DIALYSIS

    Does DaVita have specific CRUISE ACCOMMODATIONS

    I have a similar question. I am a home PD patient. Would like to take a cruise. Are there special crisis. Will regular cruses cope with a supply of dialysis fluid? How do you make the transition from flying in, staying at a hotel and then getting on a ship?

        Hi, I took a cruise last year but only for 4 days. When you sign up they will ask for your medical condition once you indicate you have a disability. Most cruises will assist you with your treatment (cost of course) on the cruise. Very important the water on the ship is filtered salt water not fresh so as long as your not using that you should be ok. Otherwise, I would say plan in the country where the ship docks for 5-6 hrs and just do a 3 hr treatment if that works for you. Good luck enjoy, I sure did.

          Have you ever tried Dialysis at Seas?? I hear that is a great place to start.
