Question Cruising with NxStage Dialysis Machine

Has anyone cruised to Alaska or anywhere else taking their NxStage Home Hemo Dialysis machine? My wife and I are wanting to go to Alaska, but we're a little nervous about trying it and are wanting to know if anyone else has ever experienced doing this before. We would like to find out about your experience taking your machine on a plane and on a ship. We would appreciate any information you can share with us. Thank you

Hi Orland, and welcome!

I just checked the Princess website to get an idea of what the cruise lines think, and here's the link to their dialysis "suggestions": FAQ: Cruise Answer Place : Prepare For Your Cruise - Princess Cruises

Just scroll down to Dialysis and click.
I hope someone who's actually done it will reply to you soon!
I think that a cruise to Alaska would be a good choice, as you'd have three or four ports and you'd be in the US, just in case.
Have a wonderful cruise!
