Dialysis While Cruising
Cruises that offer dialysis treatment to people with kidney disease.
Aims: To fulfil the travel wishes of people with kidney disease who require dialysis.
- Dialysis While Cruising work with tour operators, aware of a guests medical needs, so that they can travel as comfortably as any other tourist.
- All the services and excursions, which their cruises offer are available, not only to those with kidney disease, but to their family and friends as well.
- Ships are all equipped with an integrated dialysis centre, which has generators with an 'uniponction system'. This system accepts both bicarbonate and acetate treatment.
- The international medical team is comprised of a 'nephrologist' and specialised nurses. Dialysis sessions of 4 hours or more, if necessary, are scheduled and organised before the beginning of the cruise, so that the traveller can go ashore during cruise stopovers and take part in a majority of the excursions.
