Default Traveling with CPAP

I've noticed from several comments alot of cruisers are using CPAP machines. My DH also must use one....has anyone had any problems with carrying them on the plane? As expensive as they are, I don't want it out of our site. Would the CPAP be considered your "carry on" piece? TIA

No. It is considered durable medical equipment and is not subject to carry on rules (or checked baggage rules).

A CPAP is necessary medical equipment and is allowed on the plane along with your additional carry on. Just put it in the overhead or under the seat.

You will also need to arrange for distilled water on the ship. You can do this through the cruise lines "Special Needs Department" or you can ask your steward when you arrive. I suggest going through special needs to make sure it is available.

Take care,
Mike
