Default Re: Cruising with a disabled child

I can sympathize with your situation, but I think it would be inefficient to provide the very specialized type of attention you might need on a regular basis. As a possible workaround, perhaps you have a trusted caregiver for your child that you might wish to bring along on a cruise. You could book an additional cabin, and perhaps have your child in your own cabin during the night. It would cost more, but you would be assured that your child is getting attention from someone who knows and understands your child.

edited to add: You might also look into group cruises for parents in your situation that would provide the services you need. I'm not sure where you might find the info, but IMO if you Google it, you'll find it. It might not give you as much choice for ship and/or itinerary, but those considerations might be secondary to you anyway.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
