Default Kidney Dialysis

My sister, brother, and myself, along with our spouses have booked a cruise to Alaska on the STAR. Did this in November. TODAY we found out my brother needs dialysis. Has anyone experienced dialysis on this ship. What I am finding is there are cruises specifically related to dialysis. Some company does dialysis cruises on many ships, however, I didn't t see the STAR listed. Since we have already booked and this is a cruise that leaves out of Seattle, which we wanted, we would like to see if it is possible to do this without changing our cruise.

Any suggestions? ?

I would contact the cruise directly! Did you buy insurance?

Hi lormarscribs,

As dawnebf said, you should contact Special Services at NCL. If you bought travel insurance you can cancel this cruise and book another that has dialysis available.

You can also cancel if you aren't within final payment, even if you don't have travel insurance.

If you booked with a Travel Agent check with them to see what your options are.

Good luck to your brother and I hope things turn out well for all of you,
