It could even happen to you. Mo, now that she is here.

The cruise line is "the law" on a ship, and dementia is not a harmless condition - it is taken very seriously by the people who understand it. Old coots like this guy are shirking their responsibilities and/or in denial about the real situation.
Paul, it wouldn't likely apply to my mother. She isn't here yet ( maybe she will be by the end of the month if she remains stable). But since she is also a Canadian citizen, she is only allowed to visit the United States for 180 days max.

I'd guess if there was a problem she would be forced to leave the country immediately......kicked off the U.S. Ship
