Default Dialysis on a ship

I would love to take my brother on a cruise with me but he has to have dialysis twice a week because his kidney's shut down. Are there any cruise lines that offer dialysis on board a vessel and would insurance or medicare cover it?

Thanks
Tim

The cruise line's themselves don't offer it on a regular basis.... but there are several groups that arrange dialysis cruises a number of times a year. Just do a google search on dialysis cruises and you might be surprised by the number of choices.

I can't be certain, but not likely insurance would pay for it though.
