We are taking my mother in law on her first cruise in October, and she is on oxygen. Is she going to have any issues with getting on or off the boat with it? I never know with customs and such. We are actually hoping that she will be able to come off of the oxygen before then, but I wanted to make sure that she wasn't going to have a problem if she is still on it.
Thanks in advance for any help!!
A bad cruise is still better than a good week at work!!!

Oxygen is difficult. If you are flying to the ship, you must arrange oxygen (at a hefty price) from the airline directly. You cannot take your own beyond the airport lobby. Not all airlines allow it...for example Southwest does not accomodate oxygen use on board at all.
You must also arrange oxygen for the ship that is provided by an approved supplier for your cruise line. They should be able to tell you the name and contact for the supplier. They will deliver to the cabin, and if you are flying in, can also provide oxygen at the airport for when you get off the plane.
